Saturday's Racing Tips (11th July)

A quick post. 

Nothing cast iron going for Saturday's two-year-old action but a few horses of interest in their own way. 

12:45 Newmarket - 

A race with a crazy look about it. Soft ground, a trio of well-bred two-year-olds from Charlie Appleby and other leading stables. I certainly wouldn't be betting in this race but will be watching with interest. Wedding Dance ran well on debut, before tiring in the closing stages. She is a good-looking daughter of Invincible Spirit, and could well set the pace, and lead all the way to the line. Her experience should be a big advantage in these testing conditions. Stablemate Nash Nasha is worthy of note and one of two juveniles for the stable to be given a Moyglare Stakes (Group 1) entry. This daughter of Dubawi has very good statistics if going off favourite. Ultimately, this looks like a confusing race for those who love to bet.

5:35 Salisbury - 

A Fillies' Novice Stakes over 7f. At least the going is described as good to firm. Time will tell if that remains the case. Clive Cox has been in flying form and this rich seam could follow suit for Whiskey N Chips, a daughter of Dark Angel. The stable has a very good line with their debutantes and if starting favourite would have serious claims. I would need to see the betting close to the off to judge this filly so wouldn't give it as a tip at this time but a horse that could add to the stable's spoils. 

5:55 Newcastle - 

A touch lower class in this Auction Stakes over 7f. I kind of love and hate Balavad at the same time. This good-looking son of Vadamos has plenty enough ability to win a race at this level. However, he has a problem. He's been far too keen in all his races to date and it is something I really dislike in a horse, especially racing over seven furlongs. He seemed to get the better of Nicola Currie and Osbourne has given Callum Shepherd the opportunity to calm this beast. I seriously doubt even having the Wizard of Oz on his back will nullify his arm-stretching tendency but a horse who still hold claims. I wouldn't be betting unless Balavad drifts to 7/1+ (which is unlikely) and even then I may take a couple of aspirin before the start to allay fears of a heart attack.  

All in all, not too much to worry your beautiful heads.
