Saturdays Racing Selections

Time: 15:00 Course: Haydock

Name: Cold Case Advice: 0.75pt EW (5/1 Bet365/PaddyPower/888/Betfair)

Form: 2123111 Trainer: Karl Burke Jockey: Clifford Lee

Summary: A very competitive Class 1 race in the 3 o’clock at Haydock and the one I’m like the look of is the Karl Burke trained COLD CASE.

Won last time out in a Class 1 at Ascot and has been raised 2lbs for that victory. Had to battle hard for that win but there should be more to come and Karl Burke’s horse are in great form at the moment.

Time: 15:35 Course: Chester

Name: Pons Aelius Advice: 1.00pt WIN (9/4 Bet365)

Form: 2230352 Trainer: Charlie Johnston Jockey: Franny Norton

Summary: PONS AELIUS comes here in good form, after finishing second in a Class 3 at Newmarket last time out.

He drops into a slightly easier race here into a Class 5 handicap and keeps the same mark of 78, when running at Newmarket in his last race.

Franny Norton keeps the ride for Charlie Johnston and I’m hoping the two can combine for the victory.

Time: 16:05 Course: Chester

Name: Percy’s Lad Advice: 1.00pt WIN (11/4 Bet365)

Form: 2051943 Trainer: Daniel Kubler Jockey: Ben Curtis

Summary: I am really hot on PERCY’S LAD tomorrow at Chester.

Ran an excellent race here a couple of weeks ago, when finishing third, only 3 1/4 lengths behind the winner Revich.

Stays on the same mark of 98 and conditions should be perfect for him, with good ground predicted.

Ben Curtis takes over the ride and is very capable of lifting Percy’s Lad for the win.

Time: 19:10 Course: Salisbury

Name: Sandrine Advice: 1.00pt WIN (5/2 SkyBet/PaddyPower/Coral/Betfair)

Form: 2357313 Trainer: Andrew Balding Jockey: Rob Hornby

Summary: This looks a great chance for the Andrew Balding’s SANDRINE to record another victory.

Drops 1lb from when finishing second to Sacred at Lingfield 13 days ago. Also drops back 6f, which should help.

Andrew Balding’s horses are in great form and I see another big run from Sandrine tomorrow.
