Saturday will be action-packed and Nicky Henderson’s Top Notch takes on the likes of Double Shuffle and O O Seven, in the Grade 2 Oaksey Chase (Sandown 2:25pm). Then we’ll get to see the magnificent Altior competing on the track, in the Grade 1 Celebration Chase (Sandown 3:00pm).
RaceBets’ brand ambassador, Sam Twiston-Davies, had no luck in the Grand National. Blaklion fell at the first fence, but the pair can bounce back by winning the Grade 3 Gold Cup Handicap Chase (Sandown 3:35pm). Wholestone represents his father Nigel’s yard, in the Grade 2 Select Hurdle (Sandown 4:05pm).
The Listed King Richard III Stakes (2:45pm) is the feature contest at Leicester and this is usually a terrific race. Kimberella, Jallota and Roger Varian’s Emmaus are among this year’s runners.
Meetings are also being held at Haydock, Ripon, Doncaster and Wolverhampton. There are 3 Grade 1 encounters at Punchestown, while the big races at Sha Tin (Hong Kong) include the Champions Mile, the Chairman’s Sprint Prize and the QEII Cup. There’s also the Group 1 Prix Ganay, at Longchamp (France).
Good luck with your bets!
