Saturday Racing - Doncaster

There's a big day of racing ahead at Doncaster on Saturday, and we've been through the card trying to pick out three horses who look good value for a flutter.

The first to catch our eye is running in the 14:00 BetBright Risk Free Bet Handicap Chase. Robbie has not shown the best of form lately, pulling in plumb last at Musselburgh after tracking the leaders over most of the distance, and then finishing a not entirely disgraced sixth at this course later the same month. Again, he tracked the leaders before fading badly towards the finish, and it's that tracking which draws our attention today.

Add to that his two wins over this course at a shorter distance and you can see why he's extremely appealing. This race is run over a distance just a couple of furlongs shorter than his previous wins, and we think he's looking good for a strong run.

The best place we've found to back him is at BetFred, who are offering a very decent 8/1.

Looking to the very last race of the day, the 16:50 BetBright Casino Conditional NH Flat Race, we're actually picking out one of the favourites. Fear not, however - the field overall is a young and unproven one, so the odds available are still quite good.

The Last Cavalier didn't look too exceptional on his debut, but nor did he disgrace himself. He finished in fourth out of nine runners and looked as though he was shaking off a few cobwebs on his first competitive appearance. At first glance he might not have seemed like one to back next time out, but it wouldn't take much improvement at all to feature very strongly today.

We think he's worth another look, and at 4/1 over at Paddy Power, the odds are tempting enough to take.

Finally our longer odds runner of the day comes in the 15:45 BetBright Grimthorpe CHase Handicap.

Samingarry had a poor return this season when he took on the Cheltenham hurdles, tailing off badly to finish dead last. However his second race showed him in much better form over fences, finishing fifth in Carlisle and showing us a glimpse of the five time winner hidden at Cheltenham.
Take a glance at his longer term form and you'll spot a third place at Newbury over this distance last March. This and the improvement in the ground at Doncaster over that which he ran on in Carlisle gives us the feeling that Saturday could be a strong day for him.

He's not necessarily one to back for the win, and an each way option might be a preferable bet, but given that you can pick him up at 12/1 at Ladbrokes, he's well worth a little flutter.

Wednesday Racing - Kempton

There's some exciting running to come on Wednesday's evening meeting at Kempton.

In the 5:10 Handicap (London Mile Series Qualifier) our eye was drawn to two horse who have both improved dramatically since the addition of vision obscuring bridle pieces.

Franco's Secret has taken two wins in three since having cheekpieces fitted, and with enough running to keep him limber but not enough to tire him he looks to have untapped potential yet. Last time out he produced a strong late burst to finish in a dead heat with Bosstime at Lingfield.

It will be interesting to see if the same thing happens here, since Bosstime is the other horse who has caught our eye in this race. Since being fitted with blinkers, Bosstime is unbeaten in three races, including two wins over this course and distance. He's still running off a lower weight than Franco's Secret and given his demonstrable recent improvement we feel there's still more to come from him.

Their last race together demonstrated how close these two horses are to one another, and we honestly can't choose between them at this point. Fortunately, we can at least point you to the best odds on both and let you make up your own minds!

The best odds on Franco's Secret are found at SkyBet, who will give you a market leading 11/2.

If you fancy Bosstime, however, we recommend you visit Coral, who are offering an extremely tempting 7/1.

Later in the day, the 6:10 32Red Casino Handicap features a horse who we fancy to do better than expected.

Know Your Name looked full of potential, but didn't quite meet expectations at Wolverhampton on Boxing Day despite having won there a month beforehand. He wasn't disgraced, though, and now running off the same mark he is lower in the weights than all but one of the favourites.

He's won previously off higher ratings on turf, and we think there is still more to come from him here. It's a tough race against some evenly matched competition, but he's in decent form and we think he's worth taking as a longer shot against the favourites.

The best place to back him is at ToteSport, who are offering a decent 4/1.
