ITV Racing Tips: Raceolly's six bets for Saturday's racing from Kempton, Kelso and Doncaster
It’s hard to nail my colours to the mast of one in the Brocklesby and I’m liking four at the moment and probably will just make it a watching brief despite a few of them being big prices. I’ll be keeping my eye on Knowwhatimeanharry, Mascapone, Rocking Ends and Evolicatt who are all interesting today and going forward.
13:35 Kelso - Schloss Roxburghe Go North Cab On Target Handicap Hurdle
Demi Sang is in great form ever since he won for us at a big double figure price in December. Better than bare result last time when going well for a long way when 5th at Sedgefield when bang there until the run in after being backed in to 4/1. Jockey has won from two rides for the yard previously.

14:05 Kempton - Unibet Magnolia Stakes
I was ready to leave Al Zaraqaan alone today, but then I noticed the first time blinkers and it’s drawn me back in. Two from two at the track winning easily both times. Was 6/4 favourite to beat Fancy Man two starts back and although beaten by that rival twice now it’s interesting he was well fancied to beat him on first of those starts. Blinkers could be the key and could be very hard to catch from the front if back on song here. Archie Watson has a 19% win rate at the track over the last five years.

14:25 Doncaster - SBK Spring Mile Handicap
May Night ran better than final form figure would suggest last time on second attempt at a mile after placing on his first go when a two-year-old. Fit from a all weather campaign over the winter and placed on the turf at Ascot back in September in a race that’s worked out very well with the 1st, 4th, 5th and 8th all winning after and the 7th finished a good 2nd, the 2nd hasn’t ran since and he finished 3rd from the eight. That’s his only run in handicap company on better ground and will encounter similar conditions here. Headgear here first time is interesting and Andrew Balding has a 20% win rate at Doncaster over the last five years after 16 winners from 81 runners.

14:40 Kempton - Unibet Queen's Prize Handicap
Pistoletto was given no chance in a Group 3 at Lingfield last time in the Winter Derby but ran a huge race to finish an eight length 5th. Course winner who’s ran well on all three starts here but untried over this far. Sire has a 19% win rate on the all weather and has had five horses try two miles and three of them have won so trip could be ideal and improvement possible off a mark of 93 especially seeing as he finished upside horses rated 17lb higher last time off level weights.
15:15 Kelso - Herring Queen Series Final Mares' Novices' Handicap Hurdle
Betty Baloo makes handicap debut off a mark of 108 and boasts a good record from eight races with three winners and three seconds. Some of that form has worked out well and finished 2nd on course bumper behind recent Southwell winner Starlyte. Clearly thought of to be decent and not gone off bigger than 9/4 SP since debut.

15:35 Doncaster - SBK Lincoln Handicap
I like two in this at big prices with Safe Voyage very interesting with some 50/1 being thrown around with some firms but there’s one at equally decent odds I like more in Johan. Johan ran a huge race at Goodwood when 4th in the Golden Mile last year and has winning form after a break which always helps here too. Hits the stats for age and racing weight and has plenty of pace around him which is always handy in these big field handicaps
