Betfred Saturday Horse Racing Tips

  • 14:05 Kempton - Many Tears @ 7/2
  • 14:40 Kempton - Chillingham @ 13/2
  • 15:15 Kempton - Sweet Fantasy @ 3/1
  • 15:30 Chelmsford - Capulet @ 11/10

14:05 Kempton - Many Tears @ 7/2

A decent field of 10 assemble for the Listed Snowdrop Stakes.

MANY TEARS is the only penalised runner in the field with 3lb extra courtesy of a listed win at Dundalk back in November. She was only rated 78 going into that contest but such was the manner of her victor on her first try at a mile, she incurred a 17lb rise and James Ferguson paid 300,000 guineas to acquire her services.

She now has just 5lb to find on the top rated runners in the field, Choisya and Mystic Pearl, but it is just her ninth career start on Saturday, is two from three on the all-weather and is sure to have more improvement to come.

Adelaise will catch the eye, another who comes over from Ireland with William Buick on board, having last been seen finishing a close up fifth at Longchamp in October.

14:40 Kempton - Chillingham @ 13/2

The Roseberry is always a competitive handicap and this year the prize can head back up north courtesy of CHILLINGHAM.

Ed Bethell had an incredible season in 2023, highlighted by Regional’s top level triumph and he has a very useful handicapper on his hands here.

The five-year-old has only had 10 starts and been placed in two of his three all-weather starts. He was last season in November finishing half a length behind the AW Fial Marathon hero Prydwen at Wolverhampton over half a mile further and looks well treated on that effort.

He is on the same mark as is Royal Ascot fourth behind Vauban, county hurdle winner Absurde and the re-opposing Cemhaan who he meets on 1lb better terms.

15:15 Kempton - Sweet Fantasy @ 3/1

A brilliant renewal of the Queen’s Prize can go to James Owen’s SWEET FANTASY.

She looked a progressive middle distance performer on soft ground last year but her rise was halted when stopping very quickly at York in September. That however didn’t dissuade James Owen and the Gredley’s paying 30,000 guineas for her and has gone someway to repaying that with a pair of hurdle successes already this year.

It is interesting that they have decided to switch back to the flat for this prize and it is hard to see the mare not progressing beyond her current mark of 87, before the young jockeys 3lb claim, and I always forgive any horse a poor run at York.

Novel Legend was a progressive staying handicapper last year and cold have improved again after a break, but the concession of 11lb to the mare may be too much.

15:30 Chelmsford - Capulet @ 11/10

It is hard to believe the run for the roses winer could reappear at Chelmsford on the first Saturday in April, but this £100k prize sees the winner get an invite to the Kentucky Derby.

Cuban Tiger had Orne behind when taking the Burradon Stakes on Good Friday and will have match fitness while Bracken’s Laugh was thrown in at the deep end after winning a novice contest to head to France and the G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud. That shows the esteem he is held in at Richard Hughes’ yard.

However, Aiden O’Brien is readying his army and CAPULET looks the one to be on with Ryan Moore aboard. He won on debut on the all-weather at Dundalk before making the well touted Diego Velazquez pull out all the stops on Irish Champions weekend.

He was sent off a short priced favourite for the Royal Lodge and was a respectable third, but this beautifully bred colt by dirt specialist Justify can remain unbeaten on synthetics and book his ticket to Kentucky.
