Horse racing at Haydock, Beverley, Stratford and more

The following U.K. racecourses have events on Saturday, May 26th, some overviews of horse races at those tracks included.

Horse racing at Haydock, Beverley, Stratford and moreHaydock Racecourse: First race starts at 2.05 and the last one is at 4.40
Overview of the first race at Haydock: Buachaill Dona can foil the follow-up bid of Sierra Vista, with Corridor Creeper and River Falcon other noteworthy contenders. Sierra Vista is sure to have her supporters following an all the way success over the course-and-distance a fortnight ago, but that was a conditions event in which she received weight all round. Today she has to give a few pounds away to all bar Orientor, and preference is for Buachaill Dona, winner of three of his five starts last term, and who shaped well when a close fourth on his reappearance at York eight days ago. That was over six furlongs, and the way that he faded in the closing stages very much suggests that the drop back to the minimum will be in his favour here. The 2005 winner Corridor Creeper has to be respected off a 4lb lower mark, while Jim Goldie, successful with Indian Spark seven years ago, is double-handed with the aforementioned Orientor and River Falcon who has been knocking at the door. Richard Fahey won this event in 1999 with Night Flight and you can bet that Philharmonic will be plenty fit enough on his return, but our vote goes to Buachaill Dona.

Beverley Racecourse: First horse race is at 2.00 and the last one at 4.35
Overview at the 2.00 horse race at Beverley: In the opener, Irving Place is selected ahead of Prime Performer and Gain Share. Angle Of Attack showed plenty of promise when fifth at York on his debut after running green. Daring Dream cost 49,000 euros and could be interesting on his debut. Frizzini is a 16,000 guineas son of Bertolini, while Gain Share's debut Newcastle fifth was not devoid of promise and he too has to be considered. Irving Place has finished second on each of his starts to date and, with the form rating as solid in the context of this contest, he too has to be on your list of probables. Note Perfect's debut eighth at Haydock behind Janina was promising and, being a 25,000 guineas son of Acclamation, Prime Performer is an interesting newcomer, while Revue Princess is also of some interest being a 13,000 euros daughter of Mull Of Kintyre that is related to winners. Overall, though, the vote goes to Irving Place.

Stratford Racecourse: Racing starts at 5.45 and ends at 8.20
The 2.10 horse race at Stratford: Pearl King gets the call over Stoop To Conquer, Tysou and Ellerslie Tom, with Wee Dinns also on the short-list. Basically this is wide-open, but Pearl King looks to have a light enough weight compared to his chase mark, and with Tony McCoy on board, the Philip Hobbs inmate is the pick to get last month's losses back. The five-year-old has been in good form over fences, but a mark of 135 proved too high at Ayr, and he will be much more comfortable off his current hurdles perch of 115. Stoop To Conquer has been beaten twice on the Flat since scoring over hurdles at Kempton, and he will be more at home here as well, while Tysou is having his first outing over timber for three years, and although capable, is not that kindly treated compared to his stablemate Capitana, the mount of Mick Fitzgerald. Ellerslie Tom has topweight to overcome but has won over the course-and-distance in the past, and Wee Dinns represents the Pipe-Scudamore combination that have been in good form lately. The list is endless in such an open affair, but we shall side with Pearl King.

More horse racing on Saturday will take place at Sprint Valley, Cartmel, Stratford and Steepledowns. You can bet online at Bet365 with the best odds.
