Saturday Racing Preview - Newbury

There's a great weekend of racing lined up ahead of us, and we've been digging through the form books to find the best odds to recommend to you.

We particularly like the look of the 2:40 at Newbury on Saturday.

Bearing the weighty moniker "The Astronomical 10 Million Scoop6 Today Handicap", the field of fourteen runners looks very open to us, with plenty of potential for good returns.

Indignant makes a return to Newbury after a good showing in this meeting last year, and, one recent blip aside, her form still looks fairly convincing to us.

She'll be in top condition, so the only question is whether being 8lb higher in the weights than last year leaves her much room to maneuvre.

We think she's in with a good chance, particularly if the ground continues to dry, and the best odds we could find on her were over at William Hill, who are offering 9/1.

Next up, we looked at Monsieur Chevalier.

He's only taken one win since 2011, but it was at about this time last year and over the same distance.

His reappearance this year looked to be disappointing, but he rallied halfway and ended up just three and a half lengths shy of the winner. That was over six furlongs, suggesting he has more in hand for this race.

Furthermore, he's running of a low weight compared to nearly all the rest of the field, and we think he's going to be a significant competitor here.

The best odds we could find were 11/1 at Paddy Power.

While we mention them, it's worth also pointing out that they are offering each way odds on the first four places in this race, rather than the usual three. So if you want to place an each way bet, that's the place to do it!

The last horse we've picked out for your attention is Trader Jack.

He last won as a two year old, and given that he's now five that's not necessarily an impressive statistic.

However, he had a very decent Ascot meeting last week, coming second over six furlongs in one of his two races. He's low in the weights, and he's never run over this distance before so he may well have something surprising to show us.

We can see why he's not favourite, but we can't see why he's so long in the odds, and we reckon that the 12/1 being offered on him at Ladbrokes is a very nice price indeed.

Friday's Racing Preview - Chester

It's the final day of the May meeting at Chester, and we've picked out a few runners to take an interest in.

In the 14:45 Boodles Diamond Ormonde Stakes, we feel Mount Athos has what it takes to repeat his victory from last year.

Although he has recently been entered in Group 1 races he hasn't quite succeeded in making the breakthrough at that level. A good run should should give him the confidence he needs to really fulfil his true potential.

He ran a couple of times in March, and he should be fit for the race. He has shown well on a number of occasions when the day suited him, including a placed run in the Melbourne Cup and beating today's rival Brown Panther at Flemington.

We think he's at an excellent price given that he's not even the favourite here today.

The best place to pick him up is Coral, who have him at 9/4.

Meanwhile, in the preceding 14:15, also known as the Betfair Cash Out Dee Stakes for reasons of money changing hands, we think Somewhat stands a good chance of winning.

It's been a wet week up here in the north, and while your correspondent cycles to work and is not enjoying the lingering dampness, Somewhat is a horse who needs a bit of give in the ground to really shine.

His form took a bit of a dive at Doncaster recently, but his running has otherwise been consistently promising. The increase in distance to a mile and a quarter is also likely to play into his hands.

We're confident he can bring his form back up to scratch here, and we'd recommend a visit to Ladbrokes where you can still get him as second favourite, at 11/4.

Further down the listings for the same race, we'd also take a peek at Zampa Manos.

His form has been good and although he's untested at this distance, we feel he could be the outsider best place to surprise the field.

It's by no means a cert, but he's well worth a flutter. We found the best odds at ToteSport, who are offering 10/1 for the win.

That also works out to 2/1 for placing, by no means bad odds for a horse nobody can quite be sure of.
