We pick out three tips for the Flat racing at Sandown and York on Saturday afternoon, which includes a selection in the Listed Scurry Stakes...

14:15 Sandown - Scurry Stakes

Marco Botti's ATALIS BAY was no match for star sprinter Winter Power in the Listed Westow Stakes at York last month, but he can bounce back from defeat in that contest on Saturday by storming to victory in the Scurry Stakes at Sandown at 14:15. The aforementioned Winter Power is well fancied for the King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot next week, which shows how high that sprinter is regarded, and Atalis Bay shouldn't bump into a rival in that league here.

Beaten by three lengths in the Westow, Atalis Bay had pulled five lengths clear of the third that day on the Knavesmire, so he recorded a huge career best in defeat, and this Listed contest looks tailor-made for him to land a blow and he can bag his second win of the season. Prior to that York defeat, Atalis Bay was an impressive winner of a conditions event at Nottingham, and the son of Cable Bay can continue his rise up the ratings by outclassing his rivals at the weekend.

Mick Appleby's Warrior Brave has won two of his last three outings and could prove to be the biggest danger, while former Group 3 Molecomb Stakes winner Steel Bull has to be respected if repeating that Glorious Goodwood display, but he was well beaten on his Naas comeback, so is hard to fancy on that performance.

14:35 York - JCB Handicap

Charles Hills trained Jallota to win this JCB Handicap back in 2015 and he can strike gold once again on Saturday with BAASHIR, who looks the value play in a hugely competitive betting heat. Paul Midgley's Ostilio will have to give significant weight away to all his rivals, and it thus gives a lovely low weight for Baashir, who will have 8st 9lbs to carry.

The lightly-raced son of Muhaarar won over seven furlongs at Salisbury last season on good to firm ground, and he showed real promise when chasing home Cruyff Turn at Nottingham last month. That raider has since gone on to win at Leicester, so the form has been franked and the pair had pulled comfortably clear of their rivals in that Nottingham contest. 

Unable to land a blow next time out at Chelmsford, when finding it tough on the all-weather, Baashir will relish a return to the turf, and if he can emulate that fine Nottingham run off a 4lb higher mark then Hills can duly bag more success in this seven-furlong event.

15:40 York - Pavers Foundation Catherine Memorial Sprint Handicap

Six last-time-out winners will be among the 17 runners for the 15:40 contest at York, and one of those who tasted victory last time out that catches the eye is the Ger Lyons-trained AIKIDO, who will make the trip over from Ireland for this valuable 6f prize.

With top weight to carry, Aikido will need to continue his progression if he is to claim this victory, but the son of Dandy Man shaped with real promise when winning at Dundalk last time out, and he should improve for that outing. A winner on his last start as a juvenile in November, Aikido rocketed back into the limelight at Dundalk, and it was the manner in which he claimed the win that was impressive.

Having taken a keen hold through the early stages, Aikido still managed to win going away under hands and heels, which suggests there could be more to come from him. Sent into this tougher assignment, he will need to try and settle better, but with a big field, 5lb claimer Sam Ewing should be able to find some cover during the early stages of the race, and if he can show a blistering turn of foot in the closing stages then Aikido can defy top weight and claim his biggest win to date.
