Alan Thomson’s Saturday Racing Tips

HORSE RACING: Alan Thomson, former racing editor of the Daily Record, pulls out four more potential bookie bashing tips for the cards at Newmarket, Beverley and Catterick on Saturday.

OBSERVATORY STAR (3.10) looks the answer to a tight little handicap at Beverley on Saturday. My selection has hit the bar a few times since scoring at Thirsk last August and should be straighter for his seasonal reappearance over course and distance earlier this month when fifth behind Danehillsundance. Tim Easterby’s seven-year-old goes well on fast ground, has been dropped 2lb by the handicapper and is perfectly berthed against the fence.

At Newmarket, AMEER (2.15) can gain compensation for a narrow defeat at the hands of Coordinated Cut in the Tattersalls Timeform 3-Y-O Trophy at the Craven fixture in April. He got hopelessly bogged down in the mud in a subsequent tilt at the Italian Berby but, back on firmer terrain, the Godolphin colt should have the measure of Chester handicapper winner Alrasm.

At Catterick, SIR BOSS (1.55) can get us off to a flier. This dual winner on fast ground last midsummer drops into selling grade and trainer Don Cantillon rarely leaves the money behind in these events.

Later on the card, CHEVIOT (3.25) is a rare runner at the Yorkshire venue for Michael Jarvis and looks sure to go close in the seven-furlong handicap. Stall one is a bonus.
