Racing tips for Saturday 2nd July. It’s Eclipse Day at Sandown. We have selections for you at Sandown and Haydock. But all our main selections come at Leicester where the terrible ground offers up opportunities:

A year ago I was at Sandown on Eclipse Day to watch one of my horses run in a supporting handicap and we were contemplating pulling him out on the basis that the ground was too firm! How different today!

As always at this time of year there is plenty of racing but we are going to concentrate on the 4 afternoon meetings with reviews on all the main races.

Saturday Racing Tips
A year ago I was at Sandown on Eclipse Day to watch one of my horses run in a supporting handicap and we were contemplating pulling him out on the basis that the ground was too firm! How different today!
As always at this time of year there is plenty of racing but we are going to concentrate on the 4 afternoon meetings with reviews on all the main races BUT all main selections come at Leicester where the terrible ground offers up opportunities:

Haydock
14.15
The going at Haydock is heavy so, like Leicester, it does whittle the fields down. The one I fancy in this Group 2 is Carnachy for the Simcock stable that is absolutely flying. The German raider Nightflower is a danger but has raced mainly on faster ground and the likely favourite Endless Time although having a win on soft has not run for 8 months.

14.50 
Desert Encounter is going for the four timer this season (5 in a row in total) and the manor of his win on Monday at Windsor in the soft suggests it is not inconceivable.

Sandown
14.00
Need to concentrate at Sandown on horses drawn low and with the soft ground this bias is doubled as covering more ground out wide is not the way to glory! Monsieur Joe drawn 5 bounced back to form 4 days ago and with form on soft I will take the Midgley sprinter to go in again.

15.10
Desert Haze is an improving filly and with form on soft ground I think the overnight price of approx. 12/1 is too big.
 
15.45 
It is arguable that The Gurkha was the unluckiest horse at Royal Ascot when flying late after being hampered in the St James Palace to just be denied. If he turns up here in the same shape and with the ground posing him no issues he is the horse to beat.

16.20
Even over this marathon distance it is still ideal to be drawn low and this trip will get some getting today. Drawn in the middle off joint bottom weight is She is no Lady and the filly has a second in a large field maiden on soft ground as a two year old so we will take the Beckett filly against this field.

Leicester
14.05 – All Motdaw’s form has been on soft / heavy.
14.40 – Dilgura likes the ground and is in excellent form.
15.15 – Attempting the quick hat trick is Theydon Thunder and although not quite proven on ground as bad as this there is great encouragement in the pedigree.
15.50 – Although spurning several chances, Cosmic Beau is the only horse in the field to truly appreciate the ground and will take all the beating.
16.25 – The Jo Hughes team had a double at Saint Cloud during the week so the stable is going well and Addicted to Luck came up trumps recently on heavy ground so the double looks on.
17.00 – This is Prying Pandora’s best chance yet as the ground is OK for her and not great for her five rivals.
17.30 – Sir Theodore let us down badly at Haydock during the week, but Richard Spencer brings him out quickly again which suggests there was an excuse on Thursday.
