Saturdays Racing Selections
Time: 15:40 Course: Thirsk
Name: Eilean Dubh Advice: 0.75pt EW (12/1 – 4 places Bet365)
Form: 10190 Trainer: K R Burke Jockey: Pierre-Louis Jamin (3)
Summary: This is a very competitive Class 2 handicap, with a lot of these with chances but the one I like at the prices is EILEAN DUBH.
Having won a Class 2 event at York last July, Eilean Dubh is now on a rating of 94, 4 lbs higher than than winning that race.
The talented Pierre-Louis Jamin takes the ride this time, taking 3lbs off, so Eilean Dubh is effectively running 1lb higher when winning in York.
Trainer, Karl Burke has a decent record over course and distance and if Pierre-Louis Jamin can get a clear run through the big field, then they have every chance at another Class 2 victory.
Time: 17:40 Course: Uttoxeter
Name: Feivel Advice: 1.00pt WIN (7/2 Bet365)
Form: U12U7 Trainer: Stuart Edwards Jockey: Charlie Hammond
Summary: The obvious stand-out in this race for me is FEIVEL.
He is taking a big step down in class, and Charlie Hammond is back on board, having ridden him when winning at Wetherby in February.
He is carrying a lot of weight but I don’t think that will stop him running another good race and hopefully for the win.
Time: 20:40 Course: Hexham
Name: Fingal’s Hill Advice: 1.00pt WIN (5/2 Bet365)
Form: 9721811 Trainer: Peter Atkinson Jockey: Thomas Dowson
Summary: FINGAL’S HILL is seeking his 4th win in 5 races. He is raised 4 lbs for winning at Newcastle back in mid April.
Thomas Dowson keeps the ride and watching their last race, I believe there could be another victory to add to their good form.
