9 min

Producer Daniel Hussey is here to summarise this week’s podcast best bets…

What a bumper weekend of racing across Europe, and the Matchbook Betting Podcast is here to preview all the action from Newmarket, Ascot and Redcar on Saturday to our Arc tips on Sunday.

Tom Stanley was joined this week by Adele Mulrennan, Steve Jones and Charlie Poste – with the guys in great form as they flew through the cards.

15:05 Longchamp Sunday – Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

A team steam only in name here as Tom, Adele and Charlie are only fair about the chances of Alpinista, but do think he’s the most likely winner. ON the other hand, Steve is bullish on the chances of Onesto, saying he’s overpriced at 13.0.

  • Tom – Alpinista
  • Adele – Alpinista
  • Steve – Onesto
  • Charlie – Alpinista

Any Other Longchamp Bets

  • Tom – Above The Curve (Prix de l’Opera Sun)
  • Adele – No bet
  • Steve – Gaidar (18:00 Longchamp Sun)
  • Charlie – Sea La Rosa (13:33 Longchamp Sat)

14:42 Newmarket – Royal Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes

The opening race covered on the podcast was the feature at Newmarket, with three shouts for Saffron Beach at the top of the market. Tom couldn’t separate the top two in the betting so “chickened out” and went for Lights On at a price.

  • Tom – Lights On
  • Adele – Saffron Beach
  • Steve – Saffron Beach
  • Charlie – Saffron Beach

13:31 Newmarket – British EBF Premier Fillies’ Handicap

Mark of 89 is more than fair for Crystal Estrella, who Tom is chancing. Good American win and place for Charlie, Adele sits this one out while Steve is favouring Al Husn.

  • Tom – Crystal Estrella
  • Adele – No bet
  • Steve – Al Husn
  • Charlie – Good American (w/p)

13:51 Ascot – Oakman Inns Rous Stakes

Adele is chancing one at a price with Came From The Dark 14.0 at the time of recording. Charlie likes Manaccan, who he feels is a worth favourite at 6.0, while Steve is with Tis Marvellous at 9.2.

  • Tom – No bet
  • Adele – Came From The Dark (w/pl)
  • Steve – Tis Marvellous
  • Charlie – Manaccan

14:06 Newmarket – £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes

Adele and Charlie are backing Praire Flacon (15.0) at a double-figure price, win and place. Tom likes Georgiava at an even bigger 22.0. 26.0 and the biggest price of the lot for Steve with Red Treasure.

  • Tom – Georgiava
  • Adele – Priare Falcon (w/pl)
  • Steve – Red Treasure (w/pl)
  • Charlie – Prairie Falcon (w/pl)

14:25 Ascot – Cumberland Lodge Stakes

Four different opinions here, with Adele liking the favourite Hamish at 2.56 and thinks he “just wins”. Get Shirty is a win and place bet for Charlie at 10.0, Cresta is Steve’s choice at 6.6 and Tom is taking a punt on Candleford, currently priced at 23.0 at the time of recording.

  • Tom – Candleford (w/pl)
  • Adele – Hamish
  • Steve – Cresta
  • Charlie – Get Shirty (w/pl)

15:00 Ascot – John Guest Racing Bengough Stakes

Another four different selections here so take your pick! Biggest price of the lot is Ehraz at 18.0 for Steve. Charlie was also close to picking him but just thinks the favourite Rohaan will be too good for these. Flaming Rib win and place for Adele at 9.0 while Tom is going for the slightly bigger-priced Vadream (17.0).

  • Tom – Vadream
  • Adele – Flaming Rib (w/pl)
  • Steve – Ehraz
  • Charlie – Rohaan

15:21 Redcar – Two Year Old Trophy

Cold Case is the selection from Adele and Tom at 4.6, and should take all the beating here. Steve is taking the favourite on with Washington Heights at 12.0

  • Tom – Cold Case
  • Adele – Cold Case
  • Steve – Washington Heights
  • Charlie – No bet
