SUNDAY WEEKENDER – In Association With TitanBet

14:20 Pontefract Todays action starts with the first race on the card in Yorkshire as we head to Pontefract where two of todays three selections come from. It seems like a simplistic selection and although it won’t represent much in the way of value sometimes the obvious answer is the right one and I feel that’s the case here with Savannah’s Dream. Finishing second of twenty two in a listed race at Royal Ascot is by far the best form on offer and coming from a sire that has quickly racked up plenty of winning offspring looks the standout horse in this. Of the remaining runners Kevin Ryan’s Hemingway could push the favourite a little and the two newcomers in the form of Kruger Park and Parnassian both could be anything but never the less it has to be the favourite. Savannah’s Dream (WIN)

15:15 Carlisle Heading over from East to West as we take in one race from Carlisle in the form of an eleven furlong handicap. As it currently stands three horses are vying for favouritism in the form of top weight Sennockian Star, Tim Easterby’s Mukhayan and Top Of The Glas. Of the trio I think two of them are the horses with the best chances. Brian Ellison has had his yard firing recently and with blinkers applied to the five year old Top Of The Glas for the first time they may just help improve the horses chances, however I feel, just like its last outing, it may find one too good today. Sennockian Star is another horse that has blinkers applied for the first time in an attempt to revive form. The horse has won here before and has a great 100% course record to uphold. With Goodwood just around the corner you should see the Mark Johnston team having their horses in fine fettle and considering this horse has won off a mark as high as 106 this looks well within its grasp if returning anywhere near its best form. Sennockian Star (E/W if 9/2+)

16:35 Pontefract A return to Pontefract to end todays selections where it looks like an outsider is the best option here. In this current field of eight there are just two course and distance winners and I’m plumping for one of them. Yeeoow has a fantastic record at Pontefract picking up one victory, one second and two thirds in just four outings at the venue. Aside from the horses last outing at Nottingham it’s put in some decent performances this season especially when finishing fourth in a Class 2 handicap at Newmarket previously. Racing in a Class 3 race today and off a mark much lower that it’s highest win it has to have a much better chance than its current odds suggest. The likes of Explain and Reputation both have to be respected especially the latter who has Champion Jockey Silvestre De Sous onboard. Yeeoow (E/W)
