Lucky 15 horse racing betting tips for the Channel 4 races from Newbury on Saturday.
The best of the racing on offer this weekend comes from Newbury and with the Channel 4 cameras covering eight races in total we have a Lucky 15 tip.
Silvestre De Sousa riding for Godolphin is a rare occurrence these days (or so it seems), but he is back in blue again here to ride TASADAY (9/4 William Hill). This four-year-old daughter of Nayef drops in class here after a respectable, if well beaten, third in the Group One Yorkshire Oaks behind Tapestry and Taghrooda. She meets nothing even close to that class here and ought to prove close to impossible to keep out of the frame as a bare minimum.
Trainer Henry Candy is having a bit of a resurgence this season and LIMATO (13/8 bet365) may well be leading the way for next season as well. After picking up his maiden first time out at Kempton, before following up at the same track, he really caught the eye when winning the Rose Bowl Stakes here over course and distance. This is another step-up in class, and plenty in the industry won’t like a gelding getting involved at this level, but his form suggests he can make it four on the bounce for us this afternoon.
Nestling down near the bottom of the weights in this big field handicap is ARAB DAWN (7/1 Coral), a horse who has won three races this season already and gone up a massive 24lbs for his troubles. Trainer Hughie Morrison has booked Martin Dwyer who can do the weight with little issue and, if he improves for his comeback run, he could yet get involved in the shake up at a massive price.
On to the final leg of our Lucky 15 bet and ONLINE ALEXANDER (SP) has proved her ability with victories twice this season but failed to fire last time out in a Listed contest at Doncaster when left with a bit too much to do under a heavy weight. 8-11 today may well suit her frame a little better, as will the quicker ground, and I am hoping Jamie Spencer will not leave her with so much to do this time around.
1.50 – TASADAY (NAP) (9/4 William Hill)
2.20 – LIMATO (13/8 bet365)
2.55 – ARAB DAWN (7/1 Coral)
3.30 – ONLINE ALEXANDER (SP)
