It's going to be tough racing across the board on Saturday, with a week of further miserable weather leaving the going rated heavy almost everywhere. So with that in mind, which horses are worth your money?
The most keenly anticipated race of the weekend is the 15:35 Betfair Hurdle at Newbury. If the going were a little better, there would be no hesitation in recommending Irving as the horse to beat. However, as things stand, it seems likely the heavy going will leave him unable to compete at his usual level.
Irish Saint is definitely one to watch, especially being slightly better handicapped than you might expect. But he is firm favourite at the bookies, and it's hard to find good odds on him anywhere. For the better returns, my tip would have to be Cheltenian. A fast horse who has been preparing for this race, he's been as low as 7/1 but you can still pick him up for a decent 9/1 at BoyleSports.
For those of you seeking potentially better returns, looking further down the card my eye is caught by Swing Bowler. She's coming back after ten months out, but she was third in the same race last year and certainly has the speed in her to impress. You can get her for 20/1 at William Hill.
Elsewhere tomorrow, No Buts is hotly tipped in the 15:15 at Warwick and well worth a flutter. He's racing against Persian Snow, who beat him over the same distance there a few weeks back. This time, however, the weight is on No Buts' side, and his jumping last time gave strong indication that he would be one to watch. You can catch him for 4/1 at Coral now.
