Charlie’s Weekend Whispers

Former Talksport man Charlie McCann marks your card with five to follow on Saturday at Longchamp, Ascot, Newmarket and Redcar.

On Saturday at Longchamp I hope to see Manuel De Vega (2.15) land the Prix De Royallieu for Ralph Beckett stepping back up to a-mile-and-three-quarters. The mare won her first couple before disappointing in the Yorkshire Oaks behind Love, but the rain has arrived in time for her and 4/1 looks a fair ew price.

The unbeaten Logician cannot be opposed in the Cumberland Lodge Stakes but at ½ he makes no appeal as a betting medium. Logician runs in the same silks as Enable and, had something happened to the mare in the build up to the Arc, I would have expected connections to supplement their classic winner for the race. I expect Logician to target the leading middle-distance races next year in the absence of Enable.

The last two winners of the big 7f handicap at Ascot Kynren (3.05) and Raising Sand are near the top of the betting for this afternoon’s renewal and the former – who landed a gamble 12 months ago – gets the vote although I am slightly concerned about his draw in stall three. The 6/1 with Boylesports – 5 places – looks a fair each way price.

Group 1 action at Newmarket this afternoon and I hope to see Champers Elysees (2.45) continue her winning run. Johnny Murtagh’s filly began the season off a mark of 86 but she has made her way up through the ranks and ran out an impressive winner of the Gp 1 Matron Stakes at Leopardstown last time. I hope she can make it five out of five this term in the Sun Chariot Stakes over the Rowley Mile.

I was disappointed with Ice Sprite (3.20) at Goodwood last time but am prepared to give her another chance in the fillies’ handicap. The William Haggas-trained filly has winning form on soft ground and she is taken to return to winning ways. The three-year-old is 4/1 with William Hill.

I like the booking of Tom Marquand for John Locke (4.35) in the straight mile final at Redcar. The selection drops back in trip having scored at Goodwood over 10f on good to soft last time having been no match for the progressive stayer at Lingfield – turf – previously over 12f. With such a big field one would imagine there will be plenty of pace in the race, and I hope Marquand can swoop fast and late from his high draw.
