As usual we have our weekend preview with action this week coming from Doncaster and the National Hunt cards from Aintree, Wincanton and Kelso. The twilight meeting on the all weather comes this Saturday comes from Chelmsford
Our man #OddsKnows takes a look at the best of all the action today here for you on The Cheeky Punts plus don't forget to check out the #OddsKnows Nap which you can find here as well as the latest across all our racing pages
We start with the last of the flat action as we look to squeeze some profit out with Doncaster where the weather looks like it could be very telling today. So first up from me is the Money Back race on Skybet and the 12.50pm Wentworth Stakes. Art Power looks a fair favourite here having been running in better company this summer however I'm going for the William Haggas horse here in Tarhib.
The yard has been in flying form of late including a win for the selection a 10 days ago at Nottingham which came on soft ground. That was over 5f but she has won over 6f before and she looks a pretty smart filly. 7/2 with the money back offer looks well worth a cheeky punt here
We also have the final big handicap of the year, which also concludes the 'Dandinap' tipping comp I've been taking in part in all year, coming up at 3.13pm. With the usual big field to go at we have 7 places on offer with Skybet so it looks like one for the each way plays. Looking back at the stats, higher draws tend to have the advantage here and one that certainly ticks that box is the favourite Israr. The 3YO comes from stall 21 and looks very much the one to beat however I think the better value could be with another 3YO in Nathaniel Greene. He runs for that man Haggas again and has the very talented Adam Farragher onboard (claiming 3lb) and looks good value at around 13/2.
At bigger prices I think Tritonic looks an interesting runner and will certainly stay the trip having been running over further over hurdles. The ground could well be quite testing at Doncaster so if it is a slower run race then I think he could well be up there for a place at least. And as a big price shot, Dark Jedi comes from 'the other side' being drawn in stall 1 but he did win here over 1m6f on heavy ground a few weeks back and whilst this is a better race, he couldn't be completely discounted and could well outrun his odds of 28/1
Over next to Aintree where there are a couple I like the look of here starting with the 1.01pm and Milan Bridge. The maestro Paul Nicholls has plans to take this talented 6YO chasing in future but he can pick up another win here over the timber and continue to progress. He's already 3 from 4 over the sticks and could well be one to keep onside of this season.
The 2nd selection at the famous old Liverpool course comes in the 3.18pm where I think Gunsight Ridge can make up for a poor run when pulled up here back in April having lost a shoe and picking up a "small wound" It looks a pretty competitive race this one with lots of dangers but I think he should be bang up there.
We've also got racing from Kelso and Wincanton so I've gone for one from each with Edmond Dantes looking the pick up north of the border and De Barley Basket the choice down at Wincanton. Both should go well and hopefully land us a bit more profit for the day
