Billed as Super Saturday in the racing calendar (Or by pundits) due to the amount of races today & the spread of Group races around the country..

We are again joined by Jamie (@Glen_Colt) who will give his thoughts in between Charlie’s Saturday Selections & Rich with the Final Word with a recap of yesterdays results so with plenty to get through, we best crack on….


Charlie –


2.20 – Akwaan -Was 3rd on seasonal return at Chepstow in May over 1m and 14y, some 4 and 1/2 lengths behind the winner Lady Reset. Was then sent to Salisbury and finished 3rd again over 1m 1f and 201y some 5 and 1/2 lengths behind the winner Pempie. Next race was at Newmarket and raced over 1m and Akwaan won sporting cheeck-pieces with Antico Lady some 2 lengths behind in 2nd. Was sent to Yarmouth for latest victory over 1m and 3y when beating You Little Ripper by 2 lengths again sporting cheeck-pieces. Headgear is retained again for todays race and although is now 7lb worse off that may not be enough to halt the progress here in a similar looking race. Currently available around the 7-2 price with most firms and is a win selection. (Unplaced)

Win Advised


4.40 – Advertise -Posted 2 wins and a 2nd from last 3 starts in 2018, the wins came at Newmarket over 6f in July when beating Konchek by 2 length. The 2nd win came at the Curragh in August when Advertise beat So Perfect by 1/2 length over 6f. The 2nd place finish came at Newmarket when 2 and 3/4 length behind Too Darn Hot over 7f. Was well held in the 2,000 Guineas when making seasonal return finishing 15th, was then sent to Ascot to race in the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup and won beating Forever in Dreams by 1 and 1/2 lengths over 6f. Although this race looks a bit deeper Advertise is in good form coming into this race and should give another good show here for M Meade. Currently available around the 4-1 price with most firms and is another win selection.(2nd)

Win Advised


5.15 – Dubai Tradition -Has improved with each run so far, finished 3rd on debut at Newbury in May some 5 and 1/4 lengths behind the winner Logician over 1m 2f. Was then sent to Ripon in June and finished a short head 2nd to Future Investment over 1m 2f 190y. Latest race saw Dubai Tradition win over 1m 4f and 5y at Pontefract with Grenadier Gaurd some 2 and 3/4 length behind in 2nd. Looks reasonably treated for handicap debut with opening mark of 83 looking within reach and another bold display can’t be ruled out here. Currently available around the 13/8 price with most firms and is another win selection.(Winner)

Win Advised



4.00 – Beat The Bank -Won on seasonal return at Sandown over 1m in the Group 2 Bet365 Mile when beating Sharja Bridge by 1/2 length. Was then sent to Newbury to race in the Group 1 Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes and finished 11th behind the winner Mustashry. Was then sent to Ascot to race in the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes and was beaten a neck by Lord Glitters. Won this race last year and with a repeat of the run shown last time when going down by a neck to Lord Glitters should be enough to take this race, currently available around the 5-2 price with most firms and is my final win selection for the day.(Winner) 
Sadly Beat the Bank passed away after the race & our thoughts are with everyone involved with the horse….

Jamie – 

2:55 Newmarket – Superlative Stakes (G2) – Selection: Year of the
The aptly named Year of the Tiger has a tall reputation at Ballydoyle and he showed an excellent change of gear to get off the mark at Naas last time out.
Before that, he wasn’t disgraced in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot when 7/14. He will have to improve again if he is to win this, but Aidan O’Brien is a master at improving his two – year olds from race to race. He also has a good deal of experience under his belt. The ground is perfect too. Big chance if he has built on his Naas win.(Unplaced)

3:50 York – John Smith’s Cup – Selection: Setting Sail
You will not find many trickier punting puzzles than this. Setting Sail for Charlie Appleby and Jamie Spencer looks to be one of the safer bets in this race. The cosy style of his Newmarket win suggests that there is still plenty more to come from him. He is one of the more unexposed horses in the field and could just well be ahead of the handicapper. Big chances if luck is on his side.(2nd)

4:40 Newmarket – July Cup (G1) – Selection: Dream of Dreams
An absolute cracker of a July Cup with the form of the big Royal Ascot sprints coming under scrutiny. I really do like the chances of Diamond Jubilee runner up Dream of Dreams who seems to be progressing very nicely. Not many horses have gotten so close to beating Blue Point as he did at Ascot, although the Godolphin star was tiring late on. That form is very solid indeed. We all know how Sir Michael Stoute can keep getting improvement out of his older horses. I expect to see him finishing strongly under the red-hot Danny Tudhope. Mind you, I also really like the chances of Fairyland.(Unplaced)
