The Beverley Bullet is the feature event at Beverley on Saturday and there’s plenty to like about last year’s winner, Take Cover.
Take Cover – Beverley Bullet @ 11/4
The 11-year-old gelding has held his form well this year, finishing an excellent four-length second to Battaash at Goodwood in a Group 2 before another solid effort in the Nunthorpe at York.
He’s often seen at his best at the back end of the season, as seen last year when taking this race before backing the effort up with a Group 3 win at Newbury and a Listed success at Dundalk.
The sharp nature of this track suits his running style better than most and he’s taken to justify 11/4 favouritism.
The Saturday fixture at Chester is a good card, with some betting races worth looking at. It would be no surprise if Lake Volta bounced back to form in first-time blinkers.
The son of Raven’s Pass gets Franny Norton for company, a jockey that excels at the course, and he was winning in Listed company earlier in the season.
Available to back at around 5/1, he looks like the value bet in the contest. Arcanada could be the main danger for the in-form Tom Dascombe stable and the son of Arcano looks well-handicapped on his form from this winter.
Later on the card, it might be worth taking a chance on Dark Shot at around 8/1.
The gelding ran a huge race on debut for this yard at York and, while he’s been a shade disappointing since, a combination of first-time cheekpieces and PJ McDonald taking over in the saddle may see him in a better light.
With a workable low draw (3) he’s taken to battle out with Growl, who looks well-handicapped on his old form.
Too Darn Hot – Solario Stakes @ 1/1
At Sandown, the Group 3 Solario Stakes is the feature race of the day where John Gosden saddles the favourite, who makes just his second racecourse outing.
He could be hard to beat in a contest that has previously been won by the likes of Kingman.
