Saturday’s Horse Racing Betting Tips – Channel 4.
It’s hard to ignore the claims of TULLIUS, who goes well fresh, has some really solid course form along with a probably form edge on his efforts in Group 1 company last season.
With 8lbs in hand on official ratings, last season’s St Leger runner-up and Derby third ROMSDAL should return to winning ways, at the course where he recorded his only career victory to date.
This is a trappy contest and punters should probably tread carefully. Jack Dexter must go well but he could do with more cut in the ground, and therefore the selection is the consistent NAADIRR, who could be open to more improvement as a four year-old.
The progressive NEW YEAR’S NIGHT is taken to defy a 3lb rise for his Lingfield victory two weeks ago. Saoi is weighted to get closer to the selection, but isn’t open to as much improvement, and the Godolphin runner can make it a hat-trick of wins.
The eye is drawn to Certificate for connections that should always be respected in a race of this nature. He could be a cut above this field, but it’s hard to know if he has a good draw and this is a competitive contest. Indy is an interesting runner, and should be on any shortlist, but a flyer is taken on SPA’S DANCER (E/W), who has been given a chance by the handicapper and might make good use of his draw in stall 20 for his capable apprentice rider.
This is a tricky race to solve, with several runners holding live chances. Plucky Dip has some eyecatching form to his name, but he’s 18lbs higher than when last winning a race. Course winner BOOMERANG BOB, race-fit from a decent effort at Wolverhampton last time, might be the one to back.
There are a multitude of progressive four year-old’s towards the top of the market, and they look the ones to focus on. Mange All and GM Hopkins have the right profiles, but one at a bigger price (weighted to beat them both) is MOOHAARIB (E/W). He’s a course/distance winner, potentially drawn well in 19, who is also open to progress this season.
This is a fabulous international contest, and is one for the purists to really enjoy. Main Sequence just keeps winning in America, and is impossible to confidently rule out. Designs On Rome is a major talent (but unproven at this trip), while French raiders Flintshire and Dolniya are afforded the greatest respect. But the Japanese filly HARP STAR, under Ryan Moore, can strike. She might find things easier in this smaller field, and she can reverse Arc placings with a few rivals here.
The world’s richest race looks set to go to an American horse, who have both been lured here by the introduction of a dirt surface at Meydan. California Chrome is the obvious one, but the strapping LEA (NAP) can reign victorious. Despite being a six year-old, he just seems to be getting better and better, and is fancied to confirm himself as a top class performer on the biggest stage of all. Candy Boy is most appealing of the others, and is worth a saver.
