Saturdays Channel 4 Horse Racing Tips & OddsHorse Racing Tips
Saturday’s horse racing action comes from Aintree, Chepstow, Doncaster, Newbury, Stratford, as well as an evening meeting at Wolverhampton. There is also racing in Ireland from Leopardstown and Wexford. The pick of the days racing comes from Doncaster, who stage the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy, the premier end of season event for two year olds. Channel 4 are showing a selection of races from Doncaster, Newbury and Aintree. Below are our two best bets for Saturday afternoon’s horse racing action.
A Group Three contest here, the Worthington’s Champion Shield Navigation Brewery Stakes is open to horses aged three years and older and is run over a trip of one mile and four furlongs. The winning connections will receive £31,190 in prize money and the owners of the 9/4 favourite Noble Mission will be more than hopeful of landing that cash. The Henry Cecil trained runner has been given a two month break and therefore comes into the race fresh following a busy campaign earlier in the flat season. Other than a slightly disappointing run behind Thought Worthy at York last time out, Noble Mission has run consistently well in group company over the summer months. I fancy taking on the favourite with a runner who looks to be improving and has every chance of making it into the places at rewarding odds. Marco Botti’s Fattsota has won two of his last three starts and steps into group company for the first time here. Although the horse would need to improve to win the race, he is at least in good form and could well be capable of finding a bit more in this higher grade.

The Racing Post Trophy is a Group One contest for horses aged two years old. There is a massive first prize of £122,494 up for grabs and the race is contested over a trip of one mile. The seven runners are headed in the betting by the Aidan O’Brien trained Kingsbarns. This Galileo colt was very impressive when landing the odds at Navan on debut and could be absolutely anything. His handler has a fantastic record in this race and even at prohibitive odds of 7/4, Kingbarns will still be very popular with the betting public. The runner I look the look of here is the Richard Hannon trained Van Der Neer. He’s won both his starts to date and definitely looks like a top quality juvenile. The O’Brien horse obviously has the potential to be anything as he normally sends his best 2yo to this event but at odds of 5/1, I think Van Der Neer is a value alternative to the favourite.
