NewmarketOur top tipster, Daryl Carter berings a super six of selections for Saturday, including a strongly fancied runner at Newmarket. Check out his tips below, which are all backable via an excellent Sky Bet offer of £30 in Free Bets!


CRUYFF TURN - (2.05 Haydock, 1pt each-way - 13/2) (2 places)

As mentioned on the GG Weekend Watch, I do like both Nugget and CRUYFF TURN, but the latter represents a good bit of value at the prices, and the difference between the two is far too big for my liking.

The selection has improved leaps and bounds all season, including when scoring in a hot handicap at York on his penultimate start. That form looks rock solid, and his Ayr performance when getting no run from the rear of the field last time is worth a big upgrade. He runs off the same handicap mark here, and it's highly likely a return to prominent tactics will see him get a soft lead.

He looks the one to side with at the prices, but it's also worth backing the reverse forecast with Nugget, given they both are far superior to their rivals today if on song.

ROYAL CRUSADE - (2:40pm Haydock, 1pt win - 10/1)

Plenty of these takes each other on time and time again, so the angle here is to look for something different. Both ROYAL CRUSADE and PREMIER POWER has reasons to improve and look on fair handicap marks on the balance of their from.

ROYAL CRUSADE drops back to 5f for the first time in his career and drops into handicap company for the first time with 9/10 runs coming in Listed or Group company. This trip looks a good move on the evidence of his six furlongs run last time on his first start after a gelding operation behind Summerghand at Newmarket, and that's not the first time he has failed to see out six either.

He is a French Group 3 winner and wasn't beaten far in the Commonwealth Cup in 2020, and both races point to this 5f trip. He is worth taking a chance with off a handicap mark of 98, inclusive of the jockey claim.

PREMIER POWER - (2:40pm Haydock, 1pt win - 5/1)

PREMIER POWER is slightly shorter in the market, but he also drops to the bare 5f for the first time after shaping well in the Portland over 5 1/2 last time to be beaten three lengths. The handicapper has dropped him 3lbs for that run, and it may be the case that he has needed his first two outings off the back of a gelding operation with that run a step back in the right direction.

He looked out of the top draw last term over 6f, but he has plenty of speed and looks as though he is building to a big performance, and that could be today.

ILLUSTRATING - (2.25 Newmarket, 1pt each-way - 14/1)

A wide-open renewal, but a chance is taken with ILLUSTRATING at double-figure odds who is entitled to improve now stepped up to a more suitable trip. She has been running well over 5f in good company, and she caught the eye in Paris on her latest Group 3 start doing her best work at the finish.

That form has worked out well. The winner who is in today's field, Corazon, went close at York the next time when touched off by 1/2 a length in the Group 2 Flying Childers, while the fourth was narrowly denied in the Group 3 Firth Of Clyde.

The fifth was only beaten one length in the Flying Childers, and the sixth was a ready Novice winner next time. She was impressive on her penultimate start, excellently scoring at Goodwood, and she looks ready for this move up to 6f on all known evidence.

MARKS CHOICE - (3.30 Ripon, 2pts win - 5/1)

MARKS CHOICE ran well in the Ayr Bronze Cup last time out, but it's only at Ripon where he is of interest, and the quick return to this track catches the eye.

He runs off the same handicap mark as when we punted him, and he was denied a clear run on multiple occasions and finished on the bridle. Compensation awaits us. He has a good draw, and this is a drop back in grade from class 2 to class 4.

JUMBY - (5:24 Newmarket, 4pts win - 9/4) (NAP)

JUMBY is surely a group horse in a handicap running off of this mark of 104 with improvement almost certainly to come now stepped up in trip to 7f. He is worth upgrading for his win at Salisbury given the steady pace, and it was no easy task giving 4lbs to two promising three-year-olds there, but his attitude in the finish was excellent.

He wasn't beaten far in a stronger race than this on the July course on his penultimate start when finishing very strongly off a 1lb lower mark over six furlongs behind Great Ambassador. That rival subsequently finished runner-up in the Ayr Gold Cup off a handicap mark of 106 and is now rated 12lbs higher. His last effort further than 6f came at Newbury when chasing home Yibir - now rated 117 and Megallan - now rated 112. His form all season has been rock solid other than a heavy ground defeat at Ascot, which is easily forgiven, and the run after, which likely came too soon after Ascot.

His form at this Rowley Mile track reads excellently well when an unlucky third behind Creative Force giving him 6lbs. Creative Force is now rated 113 (24lbs higher), the second is rated 9lbs higher, and the fifth (level weights) is rated 19lbs higher while he is only 9lbs higher. In May, his win here recorded an RPR of 110 (career-high) when defeating Perotto, giving him 3lbs, and he is now 15lbs higher. This is far easier than any of those tasks, and he really should take all the beating.
