Saturday Racing - Newbury

We've looked at the 15:30 in another post, but there's still plenty of racing excitement at Newbury on Saturday afternoon. We've looked through the other races to bring you the horses we think are worth backing.

In the 13:45 Dartmouth is currently the favourite, and based solely on form we can completely understand why. However, we have concerns over how well the ground will suit him. The slowest he's won on is good to soft - to be fair to him, that was arguably his best victory yet, in the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot. That said, though, we think he's going to face some stiff competition from Robin Of Navan. That horse has won twice on very soft ground, and will surely be very much in the reckoning here.

The best place to back Robin Of Navan is at Coral, at a very reasonable 11/4.

Conversely, in the 14:15 which follows, we think the favourite is the horse to be on. Legendary Lunch has recorded both of his wins on good to soft ground, which puts him among the most likely horses in this field to succeed on soft ground here.

Couple that with some excellent form, especially over this distance which he seems to favour, and we think Legendary Lunch is the pick of the bunch. The best place to back him is at PaddyPower, at a market leading 10/3.

Finally, the 14:50 Dubai Duty Free Handicap has one of the largest fields of the day. There are a number of excellent horses to choose from, and our eye is drawn to Muzdawaj. His latest win was over course and distance, and he does a great number is bursting from the back to the front in the sprint to the line. Our worry is that he is too capricious though. Cheekpieces recently seem to have calmed him a little, but if you want a slightly less mercurial bet we'd favour Baydar instead. His form looks impeccable as he goes into this race seeking his fourth win on the trot, and the best place to back him is at BoyleSports, who will give you the best price we've found, at 9/1.

Newbury World Trophy Stakes

Ridge Ranger returns for the 15:25 World Trophy Stakes at Newbury on Saturday afternoon, and she'll be showing up with the intention of going one better than her second place in the same contest last year.

The ground looks likely to be soft, and we're pretty sure she'll deal with that fairly comfortably given her record. She's also shown good improvement over the last few races. Since her narrow defeat here last year she's won a Group 3 at York over 6f, and shown very well despite some lowlier finishing places since then.

She's probably the main threat here, and the best place to back her is at StanJames, offering a market leading 7/2.

Possibly her closest challenger will be Cotai Glory, who races under George Baker, the jockey with whom he has had the most success. He's only won one of his last thirteen starts, and depending on further rain he may not find the ground quite to his liking, but the two have made a solid pairing in the past and a repeat of the form that saw him come home second in the King's Stand would make Cotai the horse to back in this one.

The best place to pick him up is at BetFred, at a very decent 5/1.

If you fancy some longer odds then you could do worse than look at Alpha Delphini. He's the half brother of the Abbaye winner Tangerine Trees, and has shown very strongly over 5f this year on good ground. The soft course here will ask questions of him, and we don't know yet if he will take it in his stride, but with his form and potential we think he's the longer odds runner who's worth a punt.

The best odds we've found on him are at Coral, who are offering a tempting 6/1.
