 Alan Thomson has picked out 5 free horse racing tips for Saturdays meetings.

GREAT ESTEEM (4.05) will take a great deal of beating in the opening 1m 4f handicap at Newcastle.

The son of Dubawi was twice runner-up for Charlie Appleby before joining Archie Watson's Lambourn operation. The five-year-old was sent off 4-9 favourite to overcome an absence of 471 days and duly made all to score with something in hand over 1m 4f at Kempton 17 days ago. Great Esteem should prove too strong for chief market rival King Of The South, a comfortable winner from Fair Star over 1m 2f here last month. However, he races off a 12lb higher mark now.

JANIKA (1.50) should go well in the 2m 3f handicap hurdle under testing conditions at Ascot. Nicky Henderson’s top weight is well treated here compared to his mark over fences. His last hurdles venture saw Janika run fourth to Summerville Boy at Cheltenham off a 158 rating, so he should be competitive here off 143, especially if a wind procedure proves successful. Harry Fry’s Lightly Squeeze ran third to Not So Sleepy over two miles last month and a repeat of that form makes him competitive off a 3lb higher perch.

BENNYS BOY (3.00) returns to the scene of last month’s convincing victory and gets the nod in a competitive 2m 5f bet365 Handicap Chase. Dan Skelton’s gelding has been hit with a 7lb rise and although stepping up another two furlongs, he was strong at the finish when powering clear over the last fence. Dashel Drasher enjoyed a soft lead when galloping clear of two rivals here last month and Jeremy Scott’s gelding rates a threat, although this 14-runner contest provides a different type of test.

There is a morning inspection planned at Haydock where ROYALE PAGAILLE (2.40) bids to overcome a hefty 16lb rise in the 3m 1f Peter Marsh Chase. The gelding, a previous course winner, has made a big impression this season and beat Cap Du Nord by more than three lengths at Ascot. The Venetia Williams-trained gelding had more in the locker and wins the vote over course and distance scorer Sam’s Adventure and useful Sam Brown.

The 3m 4f handicap chase at Taunton provides a golden opportunity for YALA ENKI (2.10) to repeat last year’s success at the main expense of If The Cap Fits and Rock The Kasbah.

      Nice shooting Lads.

      Decent return for me and still have Great Esteem which would be sweet as it’s a good night’s racing in the US of A!

  3. recoba 8 months ago

    Agree Great Esteem should be tough to bear. Got Evs and now 5/6 and it’s by far my main bet.

    Just hunting a Yankee or maybe go with same tactics as last week I doubles and trebles and a wee 4 fold but I won’t be expecting as easy a day today 2 Saturdays in a row that’s for sure.

    • Jayell61 8 months ago

      After a day like that you deserve a rest. Brilliant tipping but unfortunately I was not on them. First Flow @ 14/1 did save my day though and I came out ahead of the enemy.

      Good luck to anyone having a go tonight. Sitting with a glass of red watching the other CHELTENHAM at the minute.

    • recoba 8 months ago

      El Vino did flow Jaye611! 👍
      Dazzman too stuff today and couple of others 👏

      Biden my time in USA now

    • dazzman1979 8 months ago

      You done well to get first flow well done 👍 looks like it’s going to be a tricky night for betting I would only use interest stakes nothing leaps out and the odds don’t really give a lot away when you see what has been winning . But 2 Moro is another day and I’m sure the bookies will have there revenge haha

      Bad day for an Arsenal supporter. But living with 3 Man City fans so things are improving at the minute. Would be delighted if Cheltenham could keep their 1-0 lead

      Craved in the drift?

      Good!!

    • recoba 8 months ago

      Don’t know why my phone keeps doing IN when I’ve clearly typed ON before I hit post??

      No matter,nice couple of short priced winners there so rest of the night willl be enjoyable (dissapointed in Great Esteem) and hopefully more profit to come.

  25. dazzman1979 8 months ago

    Only one I could find that I like out of a bad bunch – race 4 laurel park – palatial times @ 9/2

    • recoba 8 months ago

      Not easy betting Dazzman but Gulfstream been good so far and some good quality races.

      I’ve set my stall out (wet fish I’m selling) but Jesus Team from tracker was 1/2l behind the 6/5 favourite in R12.

      But to wait yer but I n mean time cmon Cheltenham…” HOLD!”

    • dazzman1979 8 months ago

      Fair play to you . Hope you get a few winners and will jump on board what ever you put up

      1
    • dazzman1979 8 months ago

      Looks worth a punt it’s at decent e/w odds if it loses I would rather lose that way backing a 10/1 shot than the favourite. Here’s hoping 🤞 gl
