Saturday Racing - Newmarket Sun Chariot Stakes

The feature race on Saturday's card at Newmarket is the 15:30 Sun Chariot Stakes, and we've had a look at the runners and riders to pick out the best odds we can find for you.

We can hardly do this without mentioning current favourite, Esoterique. She was only fourth here last year, but it's her subsequent runs that really grab the attention. Given how well she has confirmed her form in recent Group 1 efforts it's hard not to believe that last year's race was either a blip or a sighter run.

She won her only other start at Newmarket, and by the standards of her last run in Deauville's Jacques le Marois she is setting the benchmark for this one.

The best place to back her is at BetFred, who are offering 6/4.

The other horse we have to mention is Integral.

If any horse has history here it's Integral, with a second place in 2013 followed up by an excellent win last year. On 2014 form she would be a hands down favourite again this year, but things haven't really been going her way since then.

Her Royal Ascot performance was, by her own standards, poor, but it seems unlikely that Michael Stoute would bring her to Newmarket if he didn't think she had the form to win it again. She's a riskier bet than she could have been, but her recent form has given her some rather appealing odds of 7/2 over at BoyleSports.

Our longer odds pick for the race is going to be Realtra.

She's a filly on the up, and an impressive win in a Group 3 at Doncaster last time out showed that she has the potential, even if she still needs to work on the technique a little. It would require a step up to be the winner here, but on her current trajectory we think she's a potential future winner who wil show well this year.

We reckon she's worth a little punt each way, and the best place to back that is at Coral, who are offering a tempting 14/1.

Saturday Racing - Ascot

Ascot's feature race is the 15:45 Totescoop6 Challenge Cup, and although the current favourite Buckstay makes a good claim on it, we're looking a little further down the field for our tip.

Gabriel's Lad is a former winner over course and distance, and arguably favours this course over any other. He was well held before letting loose to win last year's Victoria Cup under George Baker, and if he can strike in the same way here today he could be a very impressive winner again. His handicap that time was 102 and he's only 2lb heavier going round again.

We're backing him to take his third win here, and the best odds we've found are 12/1 over at Ladbrokes.

While we're on the subject of horses who like to win at Ascot, we can't help but point out Hillstar in the 14:35.

He won the King Edward VII Stakes here in 2013, and then finished third in the King George behind Novellist. So far this season he hasn't really been on his best form, but last time out at Newbury he seemed a bit more his old self, and returning to a course which has given him some great results in the past might be all it takes to push him back to winning ways.

We think he's worth a punt, and the best place to back him is at StanJames, who are offering a market leaing 9/2.

Finally, for another longer odds pick, we're plumping for an each way bet on Rio Ronaldo in the 16:55.

A poor start and getting stuck near the back hampered his efforts here in his last race, but he ran well to victory at Windsor the race before that. A repeat of that performance would see him a very strong contender for the win again here.

We're not totally confident yet, hence the each way option, but at 12/1 over at SkyBet he's worth a small punt.
