Chester / Doncaster Saturday
3 selections today from Chester and Doncaster + Irish Derby NAP!
We’ve looked at today’s Maiden and Novice Stakes races (so yo don’t have to) and come up with 3 selections…
In case you missed it: We have a strong NAP and interest in the Irish Derby at 3:45pm. You can read the write up here.
Sunset Salute by Twilight Son won here over course and distance a month ago and should have a good chance at following up.
Balding has a good record at the track and he has booked a decent claimer in attempt to negate the penalty.
A short price but should oblige.
Odds: 5/2 (Betfair).
Chanson D'amour by Dark Angel has shown some ability and progression having placed on her last few starts.
The step up in trip to 7 furlongs could bring about further improvement from this filly compared to the others in what looks a poor race.
Most worried about Hannon's runner Millie Lou so will do a cover bet on that one.
Odds: 16/1 (Bet365)
Cover bet (a few pounds) Millie Lou.
This looks a dreadful race and it's possible a newcomer will take it.
The favourite is too short (odds-on). We prefer the other horse by Muhaarar: Himyan for Andrew Balding.
She has had two starts and not really shown much but neither have the others and Balding has a good record in these type of races….
Odds: 6/1 - 13/2.
