Saturday is always the hardest to find a winner or two, simply too many meetings. A bit of rain around, so look for horses that can handle ground with ease in it.
Todays Free tip is as follows:
Horse: Spirit Of Valour
Time: 2.25 Doncaster
Current Odds: 15/2 (ew)
As this race has 8 runners it is sensible to back my selection each way. He has a penalty for a win in a Group 2 , having shown form on ground with ease as well as on the fast side. Had to be considered a bit unlucky when hampered last time behind Breton Rock, so has to turn around a bit of ground today, on him. In what I think is an open Group 2 race, hopefully Spirit Of Valour can have a bit of luck today in a smaller field. I think Home of The Brave will set out to make all the running, he is consistent and will take beating, I just think at 15/2 my selection is a bit of value.
I did back Crystal Ocean a few weeks ago at 7/1 each way for the St Leger 3.35 Doncaster. I think he has been trained all year for this race, he missed some big entries in the summer and comes here lightly raced, I just hope not too much rain falls !
He is still 9/2 with Betfair each way (first four) that looks still reasonable to me. It is a very open Classic this year and lots with chances, as the 1m 6f will be a test of stamina, especially if more rain falls.
