Saturday's Racing Tips (4th August)

It has been an extremely busy week. Rather than detailing each and every entered juvenile I will highlight what I consider to be the better types and chances. All the information is here so it isn't difficult to find everything. As the saying goes: Seek and you will find!

1:10 Chelmsford - 

Micheal Appleby doesn't have the largest string of two-year-olds and few have much ability (although he has had a few). Aquarius is a fair sort, who won well on debut at Newmarket when 25/1 shot. Connections must have ben very upset when she reared and pretty much refused to race in the Princess Margaret Keeneland Stakes (Group 3). Interesting to see how this daughter of the Irish-bred Charm Spirit goes this third start. No bad habits, I hope. 

1:45 Thirsk - 

Kevin Ryan has Three Card Trick trying to make this third time lucky. This chestnut colt, a son of Piccolo, has run to fine races. He meets Bartie Hall, who beat him last time out, although better off in the weights as Michael Dods' filly has a winner's penalty. Three Card Trick holds a Gimcrack Stakes (group 2) entry. Racing in the familiar silks of Guy Reed Racing.

2:55 Doncaster - 

Boitron won very well on debut for Richard Hannon and Middleham Park Racing Ltd. This bay colt has received a couple of significant entries and has to defy a win penalty but priced to do so. 

8:05 Lingfield - 

The Paddocks has to carry a winner's penalty but a well entered juveniles for Richard Hannon. Won narrowly on debut, outclassed at Royal Ascot, disappointed at Newbury and showed more last time out when runner-up to a fair horse.
