Fawkes Racing: 5th Nov

Updated: Nov 5, 2022

We have one of our regulars returning this week as Fawkes Racing gives us his thoughts for the weekend and 3 selections for the day

14:11 Aintree – TWO FOR GOLD

You can’t beat a good old battle at Aintree and this race shouldn’t disappoint. A very competitive Class 2 National race and the one I’m siding with on Saturday is TWO FOR GOLD.

He hasn’t run since The Grand National in April but runs well fresh and should give another good showing if he can get into a nice rhyme over the Aintree fences.

David Bass takes the ride again, having ridden him 17 times in his career, so horse and jockey should know each other extremely well and that’s so important in a race like this.

Drops slightly in class for this race and loves a battle, which I think he will get on Saturday and hopefully spear him on to the win.

15/2 (5 places) EACH-WAY – William Hill/Bet365

14:39 Doncaster – YANIFER

YANIFER is in great form at the moment, winning in his last 2 races back in October.

He can run on most ground conditions – having won on soft, good-to-soft, good and good-to-firm, so the heavy ground at Doncaster shouldn’t be a problem. Heavy ground at Doncaster can catch a lot of horses out, but YANIFER has a great running style, which I believe should help him on the ground.

He is up in class and up 6lbs for his last win, but O McSweeney takes the ride again (taking a valuable 5lbs off) and should give himself every chance for the treble.

6/1 WIN – Bet365

15:13 Doncaster – ISRAR

ISRAR ran an absolute stormer last time out here at Doncaster and luckily, we had him as one of our selections that day.

He is up 7lbs for that win, which is a slight concern on the heavy ground of Doncaster.

Nevertheless, he won with credit that day over 1m4f that I can’t pass on him for this class 2 race.

It is a big field on Saturday and ideally, I would like an each-way price - however if Jim Crowley can give him a ride like he did last time, then he will be very hard to beat.

11/4 WIN – Bet365
