NAP Of The Day | Racing Predictions Today | Ayr Tips | Newbury Tips

1.55 Ayr – Euchen Glen (WIN)

Jim Goldie’s popular eight-year-old can cash in on the absence of Addeybb in this race and take the Doonside Cup for Scotland.

Already a course and distance winner at Ayr, Euchen Glen has had yet another exemplary season thus far and can take his career win tally up to 13.

Two poor runs in August will have to be brushed aside however, but a 28-day break should have done Paul Mulrennan’s mount the world of good.

Of the others, Juan Elcano was a Royal Ascot winner this summer in the Wolferton Stakes and should not be underestimated, while The Flying Ginger is an interesting outsider racing off just 8st 7lbs.

2.15 Newbury – Khaadem (NAP)

The Group 3 World Trophy Stakes has an open look about it this year, but our preference is for the Charlie Hills-trained Khaadem who is currently a 5/2 shot in our 888sport online betting market.

Regarded as a “speed machine” by Hills, Khaadem ran out the clear-cut victor of the Scarbrough Stakes at Doncaster last time out and based on that, should in theory, have no problem following up.

Those of you interested in forecast permutations may want to include Clive Cox’s Tis Marvellous, who won the Beverley Bullet with some conviction, and Moss Gill who should bounce back from a poor showing in the Nunthorpe.

2.30 Ayr – Blackrod & Bickerstaffe (E/W)

The Michael Dods-trained Blackrod has picked up as a three-year-old where he left off at two, i.e – with bags of potential that is still bearing fruit.

A winner of his last two races at Newmarket and York, the son of Mayson gets into this race of a lovely low weight of 9st 4lb. Take off Bill Garrity’s claim of 3lbs and Blackrod is the joint-lowest weighted horse in the field, which should be a massive advantage.

Interesting too is Michael Dods’ Bickerstaffe who runs in the same colours as Blackrod.

Sent off the favourite last time for the Stewards’ Cup Consolation race, he didn’t show his true form that afternoon and we can see him being right there in the mix.

2.50 Newbury – Al Aasy (WIN)

Formerly known as The Arc Trial, this Group 1 will not be producing any Arc contenders on Saturday afternoon, but it is a fascinating little contest nevertheless.

William Haggas’ Al Aasy returns after a gelding operation and will be bidding to put narrow defeats in both the Coronation and Tattersalls Stakes behind him.

He clearly sets the target here and his concentration levels should be so much better after his surgery.

The fly in the ointment however could come from the King Power-owned Foxes Tales. The three-year-old won the Rose Of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock last time out and is bound to give our selection the most to do.

3.05 Ayr – Canonized (E/W)

Replay watchers will agree that Canonized was the unluckiest filly in the field when she ran at Longchamp in the Prix d'Arenberg (Group 3) and with a clear run would quite possibly have beaten Corazon.

The Cheveley Park-owned two-year-old has been running brilliantly all season and at odds of 7/1 in our 888sport horse racing betting, she’s an each-way punters dream.

You’re highly likely to get your money back on her placing again, but there’s a real live chance that she’ll go one better and win.

Irish-raider Head Mistress will not be making the journey over to Scotland just for the fun of it and ranks as a serious danger to our selection.

3.25 Newbury – Sam Cooke (E/W)

Ralph Beckett’s Sam Cooke stayed on well to win at York’s Ebor Festival and the five-year-old looks a decent proposition once more in this 1m 2f handicap.

Any softening of the ground will be a bonus for Sam Cooke and odds of around 17/2 look a fair enough price for the gelding.

William Haggas and Tom Marquand are a formidable combination, so a keen eye must be kept on Aramaic who is in the form of his life at the moment.

3.40 Ayr- Commanche Falls & Chiefofchiefs (E/W)

Michael Dods could well end up having a red letter day on Saturday with fancied horses in both the Silver and Gold Cups.

Commanche Falls boasts some of the best sprint handicap form around this season (Stewards’ Cup winner) and is sure to give his running. He’s a course and distance winner too.

Chiefofchiefs has been a regular pick in this tipping column over the summer months but the eight-year-old is still without that elusive win this season.

In all five of his runs this term he hasn’t been beaten that far and he is well overdue a change of luck.

Given the wonderful season Tim Easterby is having it would probably be very foolish to overlook his two runners – Sunday Sovereign and Count D’orsay, with the latter being really interesting off bottom weight.

4.00 Newbury – Fearby (E/W)

Mill Reef Stakes honours this year can go the way of the Ed Bethell-trained Fearby who has been running consistently well all term.

A Listed winner at Sandown earlier in the season, Fearby has since gone on to finish second in the Molecomb and fourth in the Gimcrack.

He is clearly thriving on his racing at the moment and this would be a logical end to his year. Hopefully he can go out on a bang.
Gis A Sub and Gubbass can make a good fight of it also.

4.15 Ayr – Shelir (E/W)

After suffering from seconditus all season long, punters will be praying that David O’Meara’s Shelir can finally put his nose in front.

Narrowly beaten at Pontefract last time out, there is every reason to believe that the five-year-old will be on the premises again here.
