Saturday Racing Preview - Newmarket

In the middle of Saturday's card, the 15:00 at Newmarket stands out as a race to ponder.

Also known as the Betfair Supporting The Animal Health Trust Handicap, because god forbid we should be unaware of the charitable works of online bookies, the race features a mixed bag of runners.

Some of them are good horses fallen on barren times. Others are horses making their first appearance in a while, or at least this season.

All in all, it looks like a hard race to predict, and that's why the odds are in some cases rather enticing.

Goldream is probably the pick of the bunch, on form. He hasn't been struggling like some of the runners, and he's not rusty for lack of practice.

He won here earlier this month, and we like to think he can do it again. The only issue we'd maybe pull up on is the ground. If the turf stays soft or gets worse, it won't favour his style at all.

Across all the bookies he probably edges it as favourite, but you can still find him at an excellent 6/1 over at Totepool.

One horse who won't struggle at all with the conditions is Hadaj.

He's shown before that he can stay the distance over difficult ground, and his previous start but one saw him come in second in similar conditions.

In this race the field is much less predictable but we think he'll feature strongly.

His odds are up and down depending where you look, but we found him for a very tempting 10/1 at BoyleSports.

Finally, we have to consider the possibilities of Regal Parade.

He's not the horse he once was, as any bookie will tell you. But that's not to say that the horse he is today isn't capable of some strong running.

He's been dropping in the weights and now reaches the lowest mark he's run off in the past six years. Previous low weight efforts in York and in the Ayr Gold Cup last September indicate that he should at the very least feature tomorrow.

We can understand that you might be unwilling to bet the farm on him winning, but at 12/1 over at Paddy Power it's tempting to have a little flutter.

At those odds we think a little on him each way might give good returns.

Saturday Racing Preview - York

Saturday at York promises an excellent lineup and some splendid racing.

We were drawn to the 14:20 Stowe Family Law LLP Grand Cup in particular.

Two favourites are currently duking it out to see who will be considered top dog (well, horse) by punters like ourselves.

Clever Cookie has done some really good running of late, and it's easy to understand why Peter Niven has bumped him up the extra half a mile to see how he performs.

Last time out here he made hay among excellent company, and we'd be surprised if he doesn't go well again this weekend.

He's currently joint favourite almost everywhere, but we managed to find him pushed out a little to 9/2 at Ladbrokes.

The other horse fighting to be favourite is our old friend First Mohican.

He spent a bit of time abroad last season and, to be honest, it didn't suit him at all.

Coming back home seems to have perked him up though, as his spirited recent run at Newbury showed. He was only a length back finishing third and we know from experience he has plenty more in him.

Again, he's joint favourite in most places, but if you head to Coral they're still offering him at a very decent 5/1.

Finally, a little further down the card you'll find Renew.

We're not convinced that at top weight he can carry the day, but we know from his past that he can certainly stay the trip and given his recent solid for he should very much be a contender.

If you want to back him each way the best odds we could find were 12/1 at William Hill.

Conversely, if you want to back him for the win we'd recommend a trip to Paddy Power.

They're offering him at slightly shorter odds of 10/1, but their Money Back special will refund your single stake if he finishes second or third.

As ever, their offer seems worth taking advantage of.
