Horse Racing: 5 to follow this weekend

Flat racing fans have plenty to look forward to on Saturday, with the schedule packed with a host of top-class action.

Goodwood, Newmarket and Beverley all stage Listed or Group 3 races, giving punters several puzzles to solve throughout the afternoon.

All of the top trainers, jockeys and owners are well represented on what is sure to be a busy few hours for bookmakers across the country.

Tinderbox – Prestige Stakes – Goodwood

Tinderbox looked a filly to watch after romping home ahead of some promising rivals in a novice event at Kempton Park earlier this month.

John and Thady Gosden’s two-year-old made all before coming clear in the final furlong in extremely eye-catching fashion.

The Godolphin-owned horse had previously finished second on her debut behind Value Theory at Newmarket despite not looking fully tuned up.

The Gosden stable excels with this type of horse and it would be a major surprise if Tinderbox failed to run a big race this weekend.

Mandoob – March Stakes – Goodwood

Mandoob shaped like a stayer to follow after running an excellent race behind Yibir in the Bahrain Trophy Stakes at Newmarket in July.

The three-year-old stuck to his task well under pressure and should benefit from the step up to 14 furlongs at Goodwood.

Yibir has since given the form a massive boost by recording a hugely impressive win in the Group 2 Great Voltigeur Stakes at York.

Racing experts Nick Luck and Chris Dixon nominated Mandoob as one to follow after his last outing and he will be tough to beat on Saturday.

Benbatl – Celebration Mile – Goodwood

Trainer Saeed bin Suroor has confirmed that globe-trotting Benbatl is in fantastic shape ahead of his seasonal return in the Celebration Mile.

The three-time Group 1 winner has bagged more than £5 million in prize-money during his career and will be a popular pick with punters this weekend.

The globe-trotting seven-year-old has won 10 races in four different countries and will use this race as a stepping stone to a busy autumn campaign.

Gallops watchers reported that Benbatl did a blistering piece of work last weekend and it will take a good horse to lower his colours at Goodwood.

Tabdeed – Close Brothers Hopeful Stakes – Newmarket

Tabdeed has been unlucky not record a win in two Group 3 contests this summer, but should get off the mark in Listed company at Newmarket on Saturday.

The Owen Burrows-trained six-year-old ran well in the Chipchase Stakes at Newcastle, although jockey David Probert failed to cover himself in glory that day.

Tabdeed should have gained compensation in the Hackwood Stakes at Newbury, but Jim Crowley somehow snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

The drop down in class should be enough to see Tabdeed open his account before stepping back up to Group company later in the campaign.

Judicial – Beverley Bullet Sprint Stakes – Beverley

There will be major celebrations in Yorkshire if veteran sprinter Judicial is able to reclaim his Beverley Bullet sprint crown.

The Julie Camacho-trained horse won the Listed contest two years ago and appears to have been laid out for a repeat performance this year.

The nine-year-old showed he had lost none of his zip by beating Dakota Gold at Chester earlier this month and will be difficult to keep out the frame this weekend.

Jockey Callum Rodriguez is likely to be eager to prove a point aboard Judicial after recently picking up a six-day ban for careless riding.
