It’s another busy day of racing action across Britain and Ireland with seven meetings down for decision.

They include Group 1 fare from Newmarket via the Sun Chariot Stakes, while further Flat cards come from Ascot, Redcar, the Curragh and Wolverhampton (AW). Jumps action meanwhile takes place at Fairyhouse and Fontwell.

We have a trio of fancies across the action to consider, including Give It Some Teddy for Tim Easterby as he returns to Redcar bidding to win their Straight-Mile Series Final Handicap for the third time in his career.

Saturday Racing Tips

  • 16:30 Redcar – Give It Some Teddy @ 11/1
  • 13:45 Curragh – Kitty Rose @ 6/4
  • 14:40 Newmarket – Long Ago @ 7/1

16:30 Redcar – Give It Some Teddy @ 11/1

GIVE IT SOME TEDDY has been a standing dish at Redcar in his career, with six course wins on his record already, amongst them a pair of success in this Straight-Mile Series Final Handicap in 2018 and 2019.

Tim Easterby’s charge hasn’t placed in the last two renewals, but there are reasons to believe he can go well this afternoon in what is a Betfred Extra Place Race (five places).

He took advantage of a sliding mark last month to win at Chester, pulling away by three-lengths for a comfortable score. His only outing since came in the Amateur Jockeys’ Cambridgeshire at Newmarket and given that all bar one of his career wins have come at this mile trip or shorter, it wasn’t a major surprise to find him stretched late on in that nine-furlong heat.

He could be a lively outsider to add to his tally of four C&D wins if forgiving that Newmarket effort and he’s on the Most Napped table via the Betfred Betfinder for today action.

13:45 Curragh – Kitty Rose @ 6/4

KITTY ROSE won a Leopardstown Listed race over an extended seven-furlongs four weeks ago as Natalia Lupini’s charge maintained her perfect record.

She shed her maiden tag over 7f at Naas before that in August in a maiden that has worked out extremely well and she obliged last time with some degree of comfort. On that evidence the mile will suit and Billy Lee’s partner can continue her ascent through the ranks now.

The Staffordstown Stud Stakes is a Fillies’ Group 3 over a mile at the Curragh in which Aidan O’Brien saddles Brilliant and Content. The former has plenty experience and has held her own in this grade, including when ahead of Content in the Park Stakes over 7f (soft) here 13 days ago. Before that, her stablemate had proved no match for Kitty Rose at Leopardstown and this imposing filly has shown more than enough to believe she can carry on her winning ways on this slightly softer surface.

14:40 Newmarket – Long Ago @ 7/1

Look out for LONG AGO in the British EBF 40th Anniversary Premier Fillies’ Handicap over a mile-and-a-half.

Oisin Murphy was in good tune at Ascot on Friday, winning their feature race in the Qatar silks on Middle Earth, and he teams up with Sir Michael Stoute now on this Roaring Lion filly.

After just one run last year as a 2YO she began this season with back-to-back wins at Chelmsford and Nottingham in novice events over 1m2f before coming up shy in a York Listed race in July

Things probably didn’t pan out as desired for her there and she moves into handicaps with a solid chance of getting back on the up with the former champion jockey on board and in excellent form across recent weeks. This is a Betfred Free Bet if 2nd race, giving punters some security.
