Sunday Racing Preview - Aintree

The Sunday card at Aintree is full of potential for picking up a few decently priced horses.

That said, our absolute pick of the day has got to be the favourite, Valco De Touzaine, in the 2:40 Maxilead Metals Handicap Chase.

He's dropped down the weights a little recently, especially following his last outing in April, where he led before making a mistake and then falling.

The non-finish means better odds for us this time round, far better than would be available if he'd held on for the win!

He's up against some stiff competition but we think he's definitely got what it takes to make a winning return to action at Aintree.

We've seen him close to 2/1, but we've found him at a very competitive 7/2 over at Paddy Power.

Elsewhere on the card, we think Cobajayisland is one to watch in the 2:05 Rewards 4 Racing Novice's Limited Handicap Chase.

The race is over 2m 4f, rather than the 3m that some say is his preferred distance.

Looking at his form, though, we think he's held up pretty well over this trip too, winning last time out and coming second to an odds-on favourite before that.

While Bailey's Concerto and Distime both make excellent claims on the win, we think Cobajayisland has what it takes to steal the victory out from under them.

The best place to pick him up is at BetFred, who are offering a decent 7/2.

Finally, our outside shot of the day is Shadrack in the 3:50 Molson Coors Handicap Chase.

He's one of the older, experienced horses in the field, and he's proven over this distance.

He took two wins in a row in May, and he knows how to run a race.

He'd be much shorter odds were it not that this is a more competitive field than either of those wins, and he's now running off a mark higher than he's ever won from before.

Nonetheless, he's a tempting outside bet, and at 13/2 over at Coral we think he's worth a flutter.

Saturday Racing Preview - Ascot

Although the Champion Stakes is the focus of the day, and as such we've covered it in our previous piece, there is some great racing to be had throughout Saturday's card at Ascot.

The first race, the 1:45 Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup, is a great place to start.

The current favourite is our tip for the win, and Leading Light has great form over this distance.

He's considered to be one of the best stayers in the business, and his multiple Group 1 victories over 14 furlongs or greater certainly back up that claim.

Our one concern is the ground. His last run on soft going was a year ago, and it was one of his least impressive races.

Nonetheless, he has to be considered the leading contender to take the opening race by dint of his sheer quality alone.

The best odds we've found on him are 5/2, which you can pick up at BetFred.

That's not to say he has no challengers in the field, though. We think Flying Officer may also be worth a longer odds punt.

He won on soft ground in Nottingham, and although his last time out didn't confirm his previous form, it was his first ever run over two miles combined with his first race start for five months.

We certainly can't blame him for being a little rusty, and we think there's a good chance that the conditions at Ascot will play into his hands.

There's more rain forecast for tonight, and little chance of the track draining and drying much before racing starts tomorrow.

With that in mind, heading to BoyleSports and picking him up at 11/1 seems very tempting indeed.

The other race we'd like to take a quick look at is the 3:30 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes Sponsored By Qipco.

Night Of Thunder and Charm Spirit are dominating at the bookies, and both have strong claims on the race.

However, we fancy a horse a little further down the order.

Custom Cut is unbeaten over a mile in five races since the end of June, and what's more, he's shown earlier in the year that he can cope with soft ground too.

Half brother to Free Eagle who is hotly tipped for the Champion Stakes, Custom Cut has seen off the favourites in all five of those races and often looked impressive while doing so.

He's up against a tough field at Ascot tomorrow, but we fancy a flutter on him to achieve that distinction for a sixth time.

He's a good price for that flutter too, and you can pick him up at 8/1 over at Ladbrokes.
