Saturday selections

Bangor On Dee 2.20
The favourite has won this race five times in the last ten years. The winner has come from the first three in the betting in each of the last ten runnings. Looking at tissue prices, the Racing Post and the Sporting Life quote Silver Jaro at around 7/2. The horse has form on soft ground in France and rates a value bet at that price.

Bangor On Dee 3.20
I had On The Outside as the selection provided the ground was no worse than good. Given the amount of rain that's fallen here over the last two hours, the going is likely be soft. That being the case, a chance is taken with Lucinda Russell's Catch The Perk in a race where there are a number of question marks over most of the other runners. The stable is in form, the horse will handle the ground, stay the distance and the course will suit his prominent running style.
