#OddsKnows Racing Preview: 1st Apr

Updated: Apr 1, 2023

As usual we have our weekend preview with and we welcome back the flat action with the traditional curtain raiser at Doncaster. We've also got NH action from Uttoxeter and Stratford and the all weather from Kemtpon and Chelmsford

Our man #OddsKnows takes a look at the best of all the action for you on The Cheeky Punts plus don't forget to check out the latest across all our racing pages for the day

The main focus today is back on the flat so that is where I'm mainly looking today and we start with the money back race which is also the first of the day at Doncaster. And I'm going here with Doddie's Impact who has the talented Billy Loughlane onboard.

For those not familiar wit the youngster, remember the name as he already looks a potential superstar and looks set to have a very good season ahead. He has as good a chance as any here in a wide open looking opener so I'm taking a cheeky punt on him at around 10/1 to start the day off

Next up is the Spring Mile in the first of the big field handicaps and again this looks a very open one so I have 2 selections here and wouldn't discount an each way play on what could be a day to be a little more cautious

The two here I like are Broken Spear and The Gatekeeper, both come from the higher middle end of the draw and there should be plenty of pace on show here and with fairly testing ground, Broken Spear should certainly handle that and The Gatekeeper could also be bang in the mix for us

The tricky ones to call theme continues in to the 3pm where a case can be made for a number of these but I've landed on Commanche Falls. He has a good record when fresh so this could be the right time to catch him after a pretty pleasing campaign last season

And last from me at Donny and it's the Lincoln. Another huge cavalary charge with 22 due to go to post. He may not be a spectacular price for such a big field but Awaal looks to have a great change here and I also like Wanees for trainer Charlie Hills. Again with such a big field and so early in the season, it's a very difficult race to call but it's sure to be a cracker

Best of the Rest
