Alan Thomson’s Saturday Racing Tips

HORSE RACING: Racing guru Alan Thomson takes a good look at some of Saturday’s racing and picks out some fancies at Thirsk and Goodwood, including the Stewards’ Cup.

ENACT (3.40) is expected to go close for Sir Michael Stoute in the Blue Square-sponsored Stewards’ Cup at Goodwood.

The Cheveley Park Stud filly comes here on the back of a solitary outing so far this season, a very creditable second to Hawkeyethenoo at Newmarket in May. Considering Enact was attempting to give Jim Goldie’s progressive winner a stone in weight, that must go down as an eye-catching run – especially when Hawkeyethenoo was installed ante-post favourite for the race before being balloted out on Thursday. Her wide draw in 27 should also prove to be an advantage and Enact also has the services of Ryan Moore on top.

The Stoute-Moore axis could strike earlier in the day with DESERT MYTH (2.30) in the Listed event over a mile. After picking off his rivals with some comfort in a Newmarket maiden back in April, Desert Myth flopped in the Lingfield Derby Trial behind Bullet Train. He got his season back on track at Leicester when chasing home Myplacelater and this drop in trip could be the key to unlocking another success.

At Thirsk, Jim Goldie may prise another victory out of the admirable TILLIETUDLUM (4.40). Debra England earlier teamed up with the four-year-old to record a course and distance win and my selection was only mugged close home by Markington’s storming late run down the outside at Beverley last time out.

Goldie also saddles a possible ‘springer’ in BARRALAND (5.15) in the lady amateur riders’ sprint. His assistant Carole Bartley will have ridden the horse plenty of times at home and they are nicely boxed near the rail in stall 10.
