Friday's Best Bets: Finian's ready for an Oscar performance

Tippin' Jimmy gives us his best bets from the weekend's racing.

12:30 Ayr - Craiganboy
This horse made a fine return when fourth just over fifty days ago, and I think he can still strike off this current mark. He should improve from the outing, and reverting back to hurdles could work in his favour. He should run a big race.

1:20 Ascot - Divine Spear
I predicted this horse would win on his chasing debut up at Catterick, and he delivered in fine style and jumped very well. Clearly this race is much harder, but he has been gifted a very nice mark and I fully expect him to take a lot of beating here.

2:30 Ascot - Finian's Oscar
I love this horse and he just didn't get going over two miles and can surely make amends now dropped in grade and upped in trip. His performance at Cheltenham was superb and I would expect that form to work out very strongly. He is a top horse already, and a Cheltenham winner in waiting.
