Saturday’s Lucky 15 betting tip covering races at Ascot, Haydock and Newmarket.
Saturday’s Channel 4 racing comes from three venues with the Shergar Cup at Ascot taking centre stage. There are also some decent Group and Listed races on the cards at Haydock and Newmarket.
Our first bet comes in the Shergar Cup Challenge Handicap over 1m4f. Despite most of the horses having jockeys on board for the first time, VIEWPOINT (9/1 Coral) has the luxury of familiar rider Richard Hughes and could take advantage now back to his last winning mark. Despite poor performances recently, this race doesn’t look the strongest and he can hold off the well fancied Semeen and Grandorio.
Moving on to the second leg of our Lucky 15 tip and on to a 1m2f handicap where the lightly raced ELHAAME (8/1 bet365) can take advantage of a nice mark. The Luca Cumani inmate had a good 3yo season and has only had two races so far this season running well in tougher handicaps than this including a sixth place finish in the Duke Of Edinburgh at Royal Ascot. Michael Stoute’s Rye House may be the main danger and Lahaag is also better than his recent form suggests.
The feature race at Haydock race is the Rose Of Lancaster Stakes which is a Group 3 over 1m2f. There are some interesting types, including True Story and Vancouverite but HILLSTAR (7/2 Betfred) looks a class apart. He drops down both in class and trip after running a blinder at Newmarket and should be more than capable of claiming this prize.
Godolphin regularly enter their best fillies in this contest and have subsequently claimed this race 5 years in a row. This year they are represented by WINTERS MOON (5/1 bet365), a daughter of New Approach who claimed a maiden where the runner-up and third place finisher have go on to win since. Of the others, Alonsoa is well fancied after winning a listed race last time and Arabian Queen is a Group 2 winner with every chance.
