Alan Kelly’s Horse Racing Tips for Saturday 24th September

ITV horse racing tips for the eight races shown live from the meetings at Newmarket, Haydock and the Curragh on Saturday afternoon.


The meetings at Newmarket, Haydock and the Curragh provide some high-class horse racing action for ITV4 viewers on Saturday afternoon. We have tips for all eight races shown live, the big betting race of the day being the historic bet365 Cambridgeshire Handicap at 3.40pm.

2.05pm Haydock - Montassib (e.w.) (Nap of the Day)

Beaten less than two lengths in a couple of seriously competitive handicaps this season, William Haggas’s charge should prove to good for his rivals if in the same kind of form.

1.35pm Curragh. 1m - Continuous

Narrow Longchamp Group 3 runner-up Adelaide River looks the number one contender for the powerful Ballydoyle stable of Aidan O’Brien in this one mile Group 2. The market leader’s stablemate CONTINUOUS made an encouraging debut when winning his maiden here comfortably last month and looks a top class colt in the making.

1.50pm Newmarket. 1m - Flying Honours

Godolphin’s FLYING HONOURS has 10lb in hand of his three rivals on official rating and the son of Sea The Stars recent easy Salisbury victory looks even better now following runner-up Stormbuster’s five length win at Newbury last weekend. While William Buick’s mount is sure to go off at a very short price, Flying Honours should continue his progression at the main expense of Ballydoyle’s Greenland.

2.05pm Haydock. 1m - Montassib (Each Way) (Nap)

For whatever reason, the William Haggas-trained MONTASSIB failed to show his true form at the Shergar Cup meeting last month. But the lightly-raced gelding only has to run up to either of his two previous efforts to take this one mile handicap off a mark of 97.

After winning his only race as a two-year-old, Montassib wasn’t seen again for almost two years before carrying on where he left off with victories at Wetherby and Goodwood earlier this year. Beaten less than two lengths in both the Buckingham Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot and Newmarket’s Bunbury Cup entitles Stevie Donohoe’s to win this Class 2 contest, with another unexposed rival in Akhu Najla expected to prove the main danger.

2.25pm Newmarket. 6f - Mawj (Each Way) (Longshot)

A fantastic renewal of this Group 1 for juvenile fillies. The form of Irish raider Meditate and Richard Hannon’s Trillium is hard to fault, while Lezoo and Swingalong are not far behind following excellent efforts in top company. However, at a double-figure price I think Godolphin’s MAWJ (e.w.) represents something in the way of value in the hands of regular partner Ray Dawson.

The daughter of Exceed And Excel beat all bar Meditate in Royal Ascot’s Albany Stakes despite still looking very green, before inflicting the only defeat suffered by Lezoo so far when beating that horse by half a length at Newmarket’s July meeting. Mawj stayed on after being slightly outpaced behind Swingalong in York’s Lowther Stakes last time but was giving Karl Burke’s charge 3lb and is fancied to make the frame here at the very least.

2.40pm Haydock. 5f - Show Me Show Me (Each Way)

A wide-open sprint handicap over the minimum trip in which the majority of the 16 runners can be fancied on one piece of form or another. Towards the bottom of the weights, and granted a better start than has often been the case, the Richard Fahey-trained SHOW ME SHOW ME (e.w.) is capable of a big run if putting his best foot forward.

The five-year-old achieved a rating of 101 as a juvenile (second, beaten a head in Newbury’s Super Sprint) and while now running off a mark some 20lb lower, has been in decent form of late including when failing to get a clear run in fourth place at Newcastle last week.

3.00pm Newmarket. 6f - Mischief Magic (Next Best)

Richard Hannon’s Persian Force has done little wrong since winning the Brocklesby impressively at the start of the season. Good juvenile though the Mehmas colt is, this Group 1 contest looks to concern the three horses at the head of the betting, Blackbeard, Marshman and MISCHIEF MAGIC, with preference for Charlie Appleby’s charge.

The Exceed And Excel colt has yet to face the quality of opposition his two main rivals have been taking on. But William Buick’s mount really impressed when coming from last to first to sprint clear of the field in Kempton’s Sirenia Stakes earlier in the month and is fancied to come out on top in an informative contest.

3.20pm Curragh. 7f - Ramazan (Each Way)

With prize money of over one million Euro on offer, it is no surprise that this seven furlong juvenile race has attracted a competitive field of 19 runners, including 11 from Britain. With bookmakers sure to be offering plenty of extra places, the each-way vote goes to RAMAZAN (e.w.) from the stable of Richard Fahey.

Fahey’s retained jockey Oisin Orr returns to his native land to partner the son of Kodiac who looked an unlucky loser at Ayr last weekend when failing by a neck to concede winner Prairie Falcon 9lb after appearing to have an impossible task towards the rear at halfway. Ramazan is sure to appreciate the extra furlong here and is a sporting selection in a wide-open contest.

3.40pm Newmarket. 1m 1f - Majestic Dawn (Each Way) & Austrian Theory (Each Way)

Top weight MAJESTIC DAWN (e.w.) did us a big favour in this race two years ago when running out a clear-cut winner at odds of 40/1. Paul & Oliver Cole’s charge is racing off a mark some 18lb higher on this occasion but it would be dangerous to dismiss the six-year-old son of Dawn Approach who saves his best for this unique straight nine furlong trip.

As expected with the six-year-old being saddled with 10st, the stable’s 7lb claiming apprentice Mohammed Tabdi has been booked for the ride. The talented claimer (7 wins from 46 rides on turf) will be riding Majestic Dawn for just the second time, the first resulting in a wide-margin victory in a Salisbury handicap 12 months ago.

The top weight is a very straightforward ride and has been in excellent form this season, apart from when disappointing at Windsor last month, after which the horse was found to have scoped dirty. While it is a big ask for a horse to win this famous handicap carrying more than 9st, eight have achieved the feat during the last 20 years.

With a field of 29 runners and bookmakers offering plenty of extra places, it is probably wise to have a second pick. And at a massive price I think AUSTRIAN THEORY (e.w.) one of three runners for the Charlie & Mark Johnston stable, could outrun his odds in a race that could suit.
