Robin Goodfellow's Racing Tips: Best bets for Saturday, May 29

Robin Goodfellow’s Racing Tips: Best bets for Saturday, May 29

Another Batt (Chester, nb, 2.40) took advantage of a slipping handicap mark to land a tidy gamble at Thirsk and he may hit the bookies for six again today.

Supported from as big as 14-1 in the morning, the six-year-old travelled smoothly throughout before putting a competitive handicap to bed in style to endorse the outstanding form of his penultimate run at today’s venue.

The competitive course and distance handicap run earlier this month, won by Grove Ferry, has already produced subsequent victories for runner-up Dulas, third-home Kynren, Another Batt as well as Ascension, who was last of the 10 runners.

Sportsmail’s racing expert Robin Goodfellow dishes out his tips for Saturday’s meetings 

Even Crownthorpe, eighth across the line that day, ran well in defeat at a big price at Nottingham last weekend.

Old foes Another Batt and Ejtilaab, who was a place in front of the selection behind Grove Ferry, renew rivalries this afternoon.

The narrow preference is for the former as Ejtilaab will need to display good speed out of the gate to hold a position from stall one while also facing stiff competition for the lead from the likes of Alexander James, King’s Knight, Hayadh and Azano.

The prospect of a generous gallop would be welcomed by Another Batt’s jockey Connor Beasley (above), who employed his mount’s turn of foot to good effect at Thirsk to take his record aboard the gelding to two wins from six rides.

Nothing around a track like Chester can be taken for granted but with a clear passage Another Batt should again be on the scene.

Trainer John Quinn has bright prospects of landing the Betway John Of Gaunt Stakes with track specialist SAFE VOYAGE (Haydock, 3.30), who should prove a lot sharper for his seasonal comeback in the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury.

Elsewhere, the consistent CAPTAIN JAMESON (Catterick, nap, 5.55) — also trained by Quinn — could gain some overdue reward for a series of creditable efforts in the finale at the north Yorkshire venue.
