Welcome to aresonlinetips. A 100% Independent blog, brought to you from either end of the UK by 2 racing enthusiasts.
Plenty of racing to get your teeth into, we sadly cannot go through every card but we will try to bring you the best of the racing from around the UK. Charlie brings you his Saturday Selection’s while Rich will have the Final Word! So let’s get going… Charlie it’s all yours!
Charlie’s Saturday Selections –
Yafta -Has won 3 times and placed 2nd twice from last 5 runs, the wins have came at Bath, Chelmsford and Newmarket all over 6f, the 2nd places have came at Leicester and Newmarket again all over 6f. Sets the standard here and another bold display can’t be ruled out especially as last two runs here have seen Yafta fill the first two places.
Tabarrak -Has two wins and a 2nd place from last 5 starts, including a course and distance victory here last time out, making it a triple listed winner. Main threat comes in the shape of Dutch Connection who has won 3 times in this sphere, another with form worth noting is D’bai who ran well behind The Tin Man at Windsor but Tabarrak could be worth siding with here considering it’s a triple listed winner and that just shades it for me.
La Sioux -Won last time out at Redcar over 1m taking her tally to 2 wins from 6 runs, this also makes her 2 from 2 on good/good to firm ground. She has only gone up 2lb for that win and looks unexposed at this level so far, with another bold display looking likely and would be foolish to dismiss and gets my vote as the likeliest winner here.
Well that’s my thoughts on today’s selections, good luck if following and please remember to keep stakes small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket. I will now hand you back over to Rich for The Final Word.
Rich’s Final Word –
Thanks Charlie, let’s see what we have in store for today, plenty to go through but I have focused only on Beverley and Haydock, so let’s crack on…
Beverley has a cracking card, I took a look at the two sprint contest’s, starting with the 5f Conditions Stakes at 2.40, class 2 for 2 year olds only and Victory Command caught my eye. After a debut 3rd in a Thirsk class 5 5f contest by 1 & 1/2 lengths, headed to Doncaster on May 19th, winning a class 5 5f by 1 & 1/2 lengths before finishing runner up last time out to the impressive Ninetythreetwenty, when trying 6f in a Class 2 at Pontefract on May 25th. Beaten 2 & 1/2 lengths. The front two were 5 lengths clear of 3rd and 4th has since won, so plenty to like…
No Lippy runs in the Fillies’ Class 2 for 2 year olds over 5f at 3.15. Having won 3 from 4 runs this season after landing a Doncaster 5f on debut back on April 25th by 3/4’s of a length. Headed to Chester on 2nd run, stepping up from Class 5 to Class 2 and winning over 5f on May 9th before finishing a down the field 9th in a Class 1 Listed at York. Back to winning ways in a Class 2 5f contest at Musselburgh, taking the race by 1 & 1/2 lengths…. The Danger could come from Wedding Date, only 5th in a Sandown Listed last time out, but the form of the 5f maiden win is strong, with the first 3 home all winning next time out!
We now head to Haydock, who have a Listed sprint & Group 3 7f on the card, but we will start with the 2.15 Middle Distance Handicap, a class 3, 2 year old only race over 1m 3f 175y and Sea the Stars filly Sea Youmzain made a winning start in handicaps over 1m 2f from an opening mark of 73. Having finished runner up on her first two starts last season, she returned 3rd on season return on the all weather at Wolverhampton. Now running from 79 and stepped back up in trip.
Muthmir returns to Listed level having been running in Group contest’s in the 5f Achilles Stakes(3.25) Having won in a Class 2 last season, he was back in Group races since. Finishing 4th to Leading Light on seasonal return before a C/D 5th to Battaash last time out and should find this a little bit easier(he says, not taking the rest lightly)
And finally, the John of Gaunt Stakes Group 3 Class 1 7f at 4.00.… Dutch Connection will be looking to improve on his season returning 4th in the Lockinge Stakes(1m) and now drops back to 7f, where he has 3 Group 3 wins at this distance….. Emmaus is 3 from 3 over 7f and has only had 4 career starts. Winning a Leicester Class 1 Listed on seasonal return and is still very much improving, could we see these two fighting out the finish?

All the Best – Charlie & Rich
