Saturday’s Selections from #Newmarket #Thirsk #Goodwood #Uttoxeter

The latest selections

Straits Of Moyle 1pt win only 10/1 (200 Thirsk) – Now sitting 8lb below his last winning mark and is of far more interest returning to turf here today following a spell on the AW circuit. Best runs have come on turf and in similar conditions so warrants respect for a top yard. Gets ideal trip and the addition of blinkers could provide the extra spark needed.

First Quest 0.5pt EW 25/1 (345 Goodwood) – 3 years since this one was last seen in this sphere and he will not be without hope for his new yard. Has run with credit on most of his recent outings including a pleasing stable debut. Sits 7lb below his last winning mark on the flat and this yard are no strangers to causing an upset down here in the South.

Saga 1pt win only 8/1 (325 Newmarket) – Was only very narrowly denied in the Britannia stakes at Ascot last June, a run that if able to be repeated here would put this one very close once more. Failed to follow that up with any conviction and has been gelded before this return today. Cheek Pieces go on too for the return and this one we believe has the potential to be a Group race winner sitting in handicap company.

Admiral D 1pt win only 7/1 (250 Newmarket) – Shaped pretty well on his return despite rearing in the stalls and giving away a head start. Will need to improve for that run but that is a very live possibility in first time cheek pieces. Looks fairly treated on the pick of his form from last year, has a great draw and shouldn’t be put off if any of the recent rain has gotten into the ground.

Crystal Delight 1pt win only 9/2 (140 Newmarket) – Runner up on his first two starts in handicap company. Both races have offered decent enough levels of form since to suggest that a win could be on the cards for this one pretty imminently. Has been freshened up with a short break and returns with his yard in form and Jim Crowley’s booking looks a positive one too.

Emir Sacree 1pt win only 12/1 (425 Uttoxeter) – Has a very good effort under similar conditions at Sandown sandwiched between two lesser efforts this term but that run if able to reproduce a similar effort would put this Nicky Henderson trained runner bang there today. Conditions look favourable and has been eased just slightly in the weights.

Dog Of War 1pt win only 13/2 (540 Uttoxeter) – Has had a troubled couple of years and returns here following a short break on the back of a wind op. Should that have done the trick this talented performer will be returning to a CD where he has won previously and sitting on that last winning mark. Of course there are plenty of questions but more often than not the Skelton’s have the answers, especially here at Uttoxeter.

Chasseral 1pt win only 8/1 (515 Newmarket) – A very comfortable winner of albeit a pretty ordinary race when last seen but has a piece of form on debut last year that would make this mark look like an absolute gimme. Will return to action with her yard amongst the winners and open to bags of improvement. Could well be a handicap blot today.
