Love it or hate it, Ascot’s Shergar Cup meeting takes centre stage on Saturday afternoon. We will provide a Horse Racing tip for the opening race on the card, the 5f Shergar Cup Dash at 12.50pm.
We will also supply Horse Racing tips for Newmarket’s feature race at 2.50pm, the 7f Sweet Solera Stakes, along with Haydock’s Rose Of Lancaster Stakes at 4.10pm, run over an extended 1m 2f.
Our Tip for the 12.50pm at Ascot:
The Mark Johnston-trained Desert Safari is certainly not being allowed to rest on his laurels, as this will be the four-year-olds third start in just over a week.
Third behind Lord Riddiford on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood, the mount of James Doyle did even better four days later when finishing seventh in the hugely-competitive Stewards’ Cup.
The gelding appeared to be travelling best of all in both of those races until late on, a moderate finishing effort not helped by the testing conditions on both occasions.
With better ground expected at the Berkshire venue, Desert Safari can make it third time lucky in the space of a fortnight. Course specialist Tis Marvellous is feared most.
Our Tip for the 2.50pm at Newmarket:
After winning races at Haydock and Newbury, the Charlie Appleby-trained Wild Beauty came up a seriously talented filly in Inspiral at Sandown on her most rent start, going down by three and a half lengths to John & Thady Golden’s current Qipco 1000 Guineas ante-post favourite.
The mount of William Buick only finished a neck in front of fellow rival Sunstrike at the Esher track but was doing her best work at the end of that race after still looking very green.
The filly, despite having her fifth start, has plenty more improvement in her and is fancied to confirm that Sandown form. Best of those at a double-figure price could be Rolling The Dice who won easily at Newbury last time after a slipped saddle was to blame for her previous defeat at Epsom.
Our Tip for the 4.10pm at Haydock:
The veteran eight-year-old Euchan Glen is fast developing a cult status within the sport and once again can delight his growing band of followers by taking this Group 3 contest.
Paul Mulrennan’s mount has already won three times at this level and almost made it four when just losing out to the progressive Passion And Glory at Goodwood last week.
Jim Goldie’s charge faces another improving Godolphin runner here in the shape of easy Royal Hunt Cup hero Real World. In receipt of only 3lb however, Marco Ghiani’s mount may have to settle for minor honours on this occasion as Euchan Glen is taken to enhance his reputation even further ahead of a potential crack at York’s valuable Ebor Handicap in two weeks time.
