ODDSbible Racing: Saturday Preview From Hamilton, Galway And More
There's plenty of other racing on Saturday and here at birthday boy Danny Archer's selections for those meetings...
2:10: Doncaster: Key Bid 5/1.
Got act together nicely last time and further improvement to come with track, trip and ground in his favour.
3:20: Doncaster: Tribal Conquest 11/4.
Should be suited by step up to one mile and probably sets standard on two runs so far.
3:55: Doncaster: Gifted Master 9/4.
Hugo Palmer's colt relishes softer ground and he should be able to get a lead in this event. He has to improve on his form shown so far this year but dropped in grade today, he looks a major player.
4:30: Doncaster: Erik The Red 5/1.
Proving frustrating but has a touch of quality on his day. A mark of 94 might underestimate him.
5:35: Doncaster: Granny Roz 7/4.
Drop back to five furlongs should pose no problems following victory over six at Ripon last time whilst ground is also a positive.
6:30: Hamilton: Equitation 6/5.
Travels a long way for a powerful Newmarket handler and looks up on breeding to making a winning debut.
5:45: Lingfield: Astute Boy 11/10.
Excellent second in first run since being gelded over course and distance last time and a reproduction of that effort would see him go close.
7:15: Lingfield: Ambient 13/2 Each Way.
Owned by a mate of mine and he makes some appeal on breeding but also telling that Atzeni makes the journey from Goodwood to ride.
7:45: Lingfield: Vibes 7/2.
Great second here last time over course and distance and capable of going close if relocating similar form.
2:05: Newmarket: Isabel De Urbina 11/2.
Ran a cracker here last time with ground seemingly suiting as well as the pace of the race. She remains unexposed and has a touch of quality.
3:50: Newmarket: Mojito 10/11.
Decisive victor at Sandown last time and second that day has run well again since. Remains unexposed and further improvement is expected.
4:25: Newmarket: Love Dreams 6/4.
I'm a big fan of Mark Johnston's filly who jacked up here over course and distance recently and a 5lb rise might not stop here.
5:00: Newmarket: Thundering Blue 9/2.
Not sure what he beat at Epsom last time but I liked the turn of foot this lad gave and he certainly has more to come off a 7lb higher mark and upped to 12 furlongs.
2:15: Thirsk: Abel Handy 2/1.
Declan Carroll has some decent juveniles this year and this colt was a good second to a talented Haggas inmate at York last time. A repeat of that run gives him leading form claims in this event.
5:10: Thirsk: Island Of Life 2/1 NAP.
Well backed at Salisbury last time but did too much too soon from the front that day. However, he knew his job and looks an intriguing prospect.
2:30: Galway: Big Ben evs.
Second on hurdling debut and can improve again.
4:15: Galway: Painting Pictures 7/1 Each Way.
Should appreciate return to softer conditions here following fourth at Killarney last time.
11/2 Danny's Daily Win Double
5:10: Thirsk: Island Of Life
6:30: Hamilton: Equitation
