No sooner has Cheltenham ended, has the Flat begun!
Tom Stanley is here to guide you through the Lincoln and the rest of the live ITV Saturday action with Natalie Green, Steve Jones and Micheál Deasy joining him.
And just like that, the Flat is back!
Still, a couple of jumps races from Kelso previewed but the pick of the action is at a likely decent ground Doncaster with the Lincoln.
It’s a race more recently won by the up and coming future group horse and that is where we start.
15:35 THE LINCOLN (HERITAGE HANDICAP) (CLASS 2) (1m)
All in agreement here with the Godolphin horse who has the profile of recent winner Auxerre. Natalie and Deasy also want a horse at a bigger price onside, win and place.
- Natalie – Modern News, Notre Belle Bete (win/place)
- Steve – Modern News
- Deasy – Modern News, Whats The Story (win/place)
13:15 THE BROCKLESBY CONDITIONS STAKES (CLASS 4) (5f)
To be completely honest it’s a bit of a guess up given no prices or form. Natalie makes the point that it’s really worth looking at the tv pictures of the horses as a guide to how forward they are. The consensus from Deasy and Steve is that Persian Force has the right profile. Hopefully, he’s the right price.
- Natalie – Knowwhatimeanharry
- Steve – Persian Force
- Deasy – Persian Force
13:50 THE CAMMIDGE TROPHY STAKES (CLASS 1) (6f)
Natalie wants the forecast here with Mondammej to chase home Garrus. Steve and Deasy are with Diligent Harry who they feel should be suited back on better ground and dropping in class.
- Natalie – Garrus/ Mondamej forecast
- Steve – Diligent Harry
- Deasy – Diligent Harry
14:25 THE SPRING MILE HANDICAP STAKES (CLASS 2) (1m)
Strong shouts for Empirestateofmind who is very progressive and sits at the top of the betting currently at 4.5. Deasy is with General Lee at around a point bigger and equally progressive.
- Natalie – Empirestateofmind
- Steve – Empirestateofmind
- Deasy – General Lee
15:00 THE DONCASTER MILE STAKES (CLASS 1) (1m)
Nobody really makes Chindit a backable price but Natalie is adamant he should still be shorter. She probably would back Boosala at current odds. All in all a disappointing turnout.
- Natalie – Chindit, Boosala
- Steve – Chindit
- Deasy – Chindit
14:05 THE RACING TV MAGNOLIA STAKES (CLASS 1) (1m2f)
Father Of Jazz has always promised much and Natalie hopes the hood will sort him out. Deasy is having a pop at Chichester at 13.0 at the time of recording.
- Natalie – Father of Jazz
- Steve – Felix
- Deasy – Chichester (win/place)
14:40 THE RACING TV QUEEN’S PRIZE HANDICAP STAKES (CLASS 2) (London Stayers’ Series Qualifier) (2m)
Steve can’t see past Bandinelli and for what it’s worth I agree. Deasy thinks Auriferous is the overpriced one whilst Natalie wants a few onside against the favourite.
- Natalie – Imperium, Justus (win/place)
- Steve – Bandinelli
- Deasy – Auiferous (win/place)

15:15 THE HERRING QUEEN SERIES FINAL MARES’ NOVICES’ HANDICAP HURDLE RACE (CLASS 2) (2m)
Some strong shouts for Theatre Glory who won well last time and looks fairly treated on handicap debut. Deasy is again looking a little further down the betting to Aliomaana whose trainer is enjoying a fine season.
- Natalie – Theatre Glory
- Steve – Theatre Glory
- Deasy – Aliomaana
15:46 RACING TV HANDICAP HURDLE (3M2F)
No strong opinions here but Natalie gives a shout to Kaizer who goes well here. Deasy is with the steadily progressive Wakool.
- Natalie – Kaizer
- Steve – No bet
- Deasy – Wakool
- Natalie – Theatre Glory (15:15 Kelso)
- Steve – Diligent Harry (13:50 Doncaster)
- Deasy – General Lee (14:25 Doncaster)
Best of luck!
