It’s been a terrific week of punting from our podcast team. Host Tom Stanley reveals who the team are backing in Saturday’s ITV races!
Group 1 action on Saturday in the form of the Lockinge at Newbury. Palace Pier is the class act for all none of the panel make him a backable price at the time of recording. The without market is of particular interest for a few of us.
Al Rayyan Stakes (14:25 Newbury)
If Al Aasy drifts at all I think he’s a bet and Sam is of a similar opinion at the prices though a little keener than me. Steve and Deasy think the likely front runner could steal this.
- Sam – Al Aasy
- Steve – Thunderous
- Deasy – Thunderous
- Tom – No bet unless Al Aasy 2.25 or bigger
London Gold Cup (15:00 Newbury)
Typically won by a very good horse and Sam and I think Bay Bridge fits that bill. I make him my best bet. Deasy sees some value elsewhere.
- Sam – Bay Bridge
- Steve – Oz Legend
- Deasy – Tambarodda / River Alwen
- Tom – Bay Bridge BEST BET

6f Handicap (15:15 Newmarket)
Sam and Deasy like First Folio win and place for a trainer going well. Deasy and I are getting stuck into some double figure odds, mine mainly in the place market. Steve’s best bet lines up here at a fair price.
- Sam – First Folio
- Steve – Bickerstaffe BEST BET
- Deasy – First Folio
- Tom – Shalaa Asker
G1 Lockinge Stakes (15:35 Newbury)
Well worth using the without the favourite market if you don’t want to back Palace Pier but aren’t necessarily against him. Deasy and I are going down that route whilst Sam and Steve keen on a pair win and place, including Sam’s best bet.
- Sam -Lope Y Fernandez BEST BET
- Steve – My Oberon
- Deasy – Top Rank w/o Palace Pier BEST BET
- Tom – Century Dream & Safe Voyage w/o Palace Pier
