Tippin' Jimmy talks us through his Saturday tips.
2:05 York - Syphax (10/1) ew
I rate this horse quite highly and I still think he has a good win in him this season, especially now dropped into handicapping. His first effort in this company was decent, and he has been lowered again in the weights. He has won at this track before, and the longer trip will benefit him. Conditions should be fine and he could run a big race.
2:40 York - Shabaaby (11/10)
This is clearly a horse going places for Owen Burrows, who lines up in listed company this afternoon. He has won his previous two outings in dominant fashion and looks like a very good horse in the making. After a seven length victory he looks very hard to oppose here.
4:25 York - Maghaweer (5/1)
This horse certainly would've caught the eye of punters at Kempton last time out, and looks like a smart prospect in the making for Richard Hannon. He was really slowly away, and a tad green but finished well to finish fourth. He will improve from that run, and will benefit for the experience too. He has a win in him, and will break his maiden soon.
4:30 Cork - Focus On Heaven (4/1)
If you followed me last week you would've been pulling your hair out when a 50-1 shot crept past him, and trust me I was doing exactly that. He is a classy horse in the making and is improving. He won pretty well in maiden company, and last week's handicap second was a decent run. Off the same mark, and against the girls she should have a huge chance.
5:40 Hexham - Senor Lombardy (4/5)
A very expensive purchase after his Irish point win, Senor Lombardy made a very promising start to life when second in a Kelso bumper earlier this month. He was a tad green that day, and it was his first run for a while but he kept on well and was only defeated narrowly. He'll come on a lot for that run and is the one to beat today.
6:45 Kempton - Dragon Mountain (3/1)
For me Dragon Mountain is the one to beat here, providing he runs his race. I think he has shaped up like a smart horse, but has proved a little keen and needs to settle down a bit here. He has finished third on his last two outings, but he could be winning providing he acts more mature this afternoon.
