Saturday Stunners – Top Horse Racing Tips at Goodwood, Newmarket, Windsor and Redcar on Saturday, August 29
Horse Racing tips
Recent wet weather means conditions are set to be very testing on Saturday, with jockeys perhaps better off carrying oars than a whip at the turf meetings but we’ve selected our four best bets and hope that they can splash through the mud to victory.
So check out Saturday’s horse racing tips and don’t forget to click the links to take advantage of the best price on offer.
WATAN (2.06 Newmarket, 6f Listed)
Made a pleasing reappearance when second in a decent race at Newbury before arguably disappointing when quietly fancied for the Stewards’ Cup at Goodwood last time.
Suspect that the fast pace in a 30-runner handicap was his undoing and that he’ll be better suited by the slower pace and smaller field here.
Should still be improving as he’s had just nine career starts and he is overpriced to confirm the promise of his seasonal debut.
DUKE OF HAZZARD (3.35 Goodwood, 1m Group 2)
Won this race last year and loves it around this course, with form figures of 1112, with his only defeat coming to Space Blues, who went on to win a Group 1 in France on his next start.
So even that form in defeat looks rock solid and, although he disappointed when last of eight, last time it can always be worth forgiving a horse one bad run.
Worth chancing to bounce back to form.
ASTROMAN (3.50 Windsor, 1m2f handicap)
A wide-open 16-runner handicap for us to get stuck into here and our vote goes to Astroman.
He travelled like the best horse in the race before struggling for a run up the rail at Haydock last and still managed to finish third.
That was a fine run on his first start at this trip and he’s taken to back up that run here.
ORIN SWIFT (4.10 Goodwood, 1m6f handicap)
Was well beaten on his comeback but that was his first run for nearly a year and he’s back down to a winnable mark.
Will appreciate cut in the ground with form figures of 322242 when the word ‘soft’ features in the going description. Stays well and has good course form under these conditions, while trainer Jonny Portman has hsi string in fine form.
