Expert Betting Tips for Saturday’s TV Races
This is quite a tricky race to open with, and there are several live hopes. O Maonlai bolted up last time, and despite a 15lb rise is very much respected. However, a chance is taken on BOBCATBILLY (E/W) (11/1 Coral), who is 5 wins 11 starts over fences and still potentially improving.
This could be a bit of a slog over 3m2f on ground which might be soft enough for a few. THE LAST SAMURI (9/2 Paddy Power) has always hinted at having plenty of ability, and as the least exposed member of the field, he is the selection.
The return to good ground can see DUSKY LEGEND (E/W) (11/1 Coral) go well. Alan King’s charge has bumped into some good mares in both bumpers and some quality contests over hurdles, and might represent some value in today’s big field.
Stamina will again be at a premium over this 3m3f trip and the state of the ground will also play a key part. Milansbar is tempting off top weight, but it probably won’t be deep enough for him. SPOOKYDOOKY (3/1 Paddy Power) should go on the prevailing surface, and remains open to plenty of improvement for Jonjo O’Neill.
This is likely to be a stiff test at the trip, with most eyes drawn to Carruthers after the exploits of his stable at Cheltenham last week. Back from a break and up in trip, a chance is taken on SIN BIN (E/W) (7/1 Betfred) putting his best foot forward to continue Paul Nicholls wonderful run of weekend winners.
Oscar Rock has always been a talented individual, but he’s been a beaten favourite five times in his relatively short career, and under top weight he is opposable here. OSCAR FORTUNE (5/2 William Hill) can make it a good day for Jonjo O’Neill and is the best alternative to the market leader.
STORM FORCE TEN (NAP) (9/4 bet365) has caught the eye on all three runs this season, and off a mark of 123 he looks dangerously well-handicapped on his first run on good ground since going hurdling. Sam Waley-Cohen’s 3lb claim is also handy and he’s fancied to go close.
