Saturday Stunners – Best Bets at Haydock, Ascot and Newmarket on August 8
Horse Racing tips
We’ve been in fantastic form this week, recording a 13/2 winning nap, a 20/1 double and a 200/1 treble from our tips on Thursday. Our experts are not resting on their laurels though and are back with another four fancies in our quest for a super Saturday.
So check out today’s horse racing tips and don’t forget to click the links to take advantage of the best price on offer
FESTIVE STAR (2.05 Haydock, 1m Listed)
An interesting clash of seasoned older horses and exciting three-year-old performers set to do battle here and one of the younger brigade can come out on top in the shape of Festive Star.
She was impressive conceding 17lb to the opposing Tomorrow’s Dream when winning at Newbury last time and Tomorrow’s Dream has since come out to win well at Glorious Goodwood last week.
That form looks solid and Festive Star is taken to beat proven Group 1 performer Veracious, who is admirable but is making her seasonal return and she has been beaten on her reappearance every season.
KALOOR (3.00 Ascot, 2m handicap)
Again steps up in trip and makes his first start over this marathon start. Has shaped like a true stayer in his three starts since joining trainer David Menuisier this season and caught the eye when third over 1m6f at Sandown last time after being involved in a barging match and dropping to last with a couple of furlongs to run.
Likely that he will improve for this trip and should run well.
FLY MISS HELEN (3.20 Newmarket, 7f Group 3)
Has made just one start but was an eyecatching winner on debut at Newbury. Badly hampered at the start, she recovered to race in midfield before showing a sparkling turn of foot to race clear of some well-bred rivals.
Was heavily backed on that occasion so connections obviously knew they had a filly of some ability and she can be supported to take this stepping up to Group level.
CARADOC (3.35 Ascot, 1m4f handicap)
This could wel finally be the time that we get to see the best of Caradoc who has threatened to win a decent handicap for some time.
Well backed to win the John Smith’s Cup last time, he may have struggled under soft underfoot conditions, with three of his four wins coming on good to firm ground.
Gets his optimum conditions here and trainer Ed Walker is in good form, while jockey Danny Tudhope rides Ascot as well as any of the top jockeys around.
