Saturday 29th December expert tips - Unblinking and Ballywood popular ITV racing picks

Jonathan Vine 29 Dec 2018
Newbury races.

We've taken a look through various horse racing media publications to bring you which horses the experts are tipping at today's major meetings at Doncaster and Newbury.

Captain Heath's Trio (The Daily Mail)
Donc 1.30 Battle Of Shiloh (5/1 William Hill)
Newb 1.50 Rainbow Dreamer (17/2 Coral)
Newb 3.00 Kateson (15/2 Ladbrokes)

Rob Wright (The Times)
Doncaster
11.50 Speed Company (4/1 Coral)
12.20 Seven De Baune (7/4 Ladbrokes)
12.55 Golden Image (10/3 Betfair)
1.30 Station Master (11/4 William Hill)
2.05 Rene’s Girl (7/2 Coral)
2.40 Kasakh Noir (3/1 Ladbrokes)
3.15 Commodore Barry (4/1 William Hill)

Newbury
12.05 Praeceps (11/2 Coral)
12.40 Reverend Jacobs (6/1 Ladbrokes)
1.15 Early Du Lemo (11/2 Betfair)
1.50 Coeur Blimey (9/2 William Hill)
2.25 Reikers Island (NAP) (3/1 Ladbrokes)
3.00 Champ (11/8 William Hill)
3.35 Wilde Blue Yonder (6/1 Betfair)

Templegate (The Sun)
1.30 Doncaster - Go to war with BATTLE OF SHILOH (5/1 William Hill). He looked a fine prospect when winning his first four races a couple of years ago.
1.50 Newbury - UNBLINKING (5/1 William Hill) has been in great form this season. After winning on the Flat at Kempton he ran a personal best over hurdles when runner-up in a big-field handicap at Cheltenham.
2.05 Doncaster - DRINKS INTERVAL (4/1 Coral) won three of her first four starts over fences and she was still in front travelling well when she fell three from home at Market Rasen.
2.25 Newbury - REIKERS ISLAND (3/1 Ladbrokes) looks a fruity bet in the Betway Mandarin Chase. He jumped like an old hand on only his second chase start when beating in-form Some Chaos at Wincanton three weeks ago.
2.40 Doncaster - BALLYWOOD (11/10 Ladbrokes) is the clear pick in a disappointing turnout for this novices’ chase. His jumping was very good and he showed a decent attitude to hold off Capeland in the closing stages at Taunton a couple of weeks ago.
3.00 Newbury - Fergal O’Brien won this Grade 1 last year with second-season novice Poetic Rhythm and he has a great chance of landing it again with similar type COOLANLY (9/1 Coral). He came up against the likes of Samcro and Lalor last season. That experience was put to good use when he took apart a quality field at Cheltenham last month.
3.15 Doncaster - This race might not be as prestigious but I think they’ve have themselves another winner with ENNISCOFFEY OSCAR (3/1 Betfair). His jumping has let him down over fences this season and I’m expecting him to enjoy this return to hurdles.
3.35 Newbury - WENYERREADYFREDDIE (2/1 Ladbrokes) looks a good bet to complete a hat-trick of wins. He’s thrived this season.
