The Weaver Shark has 6 of the best for Saturday's tellybox action.

Jason Weaver Flat Racing


Goodwood 13.50 – Tinto @ 12/1

It’s going to be a big ask for a three-year-old to win this competitive handicap, however he looked so unlucky a few days ago over this track that given any luck in running whatsoever he has to be on the premises. He seems to have plenty of pace drawn around him so will be on the right side of the course. Amanda Perrett’s runner also gets a massive jockey upgrade to former champion rider, Jim Crowley and Paddy’s paying the first 6 home.

Newmarket 14:05 Blue Gardenia @ 10/1 

After getting her head in front at Listed level last season, she has been thrown in the deep end in 2019. She has to turn the form around with a couple of the runners in this line-up, but didn’t get any luck last time and was squeezed as the tempo was rising. Again, we get a massive jockey upgrade in Jamie Spencer and expect her to be played very late.

Goodwood 14.25 Top Tug @ 14/1

Is becoming a bit of a cliff horse as far as I am concerned, but he’s going to go off at double-digit odds again and represents cracking each-way value, The reason for going back in again is that he is finally stepped back up to 1m 6f and has some decent form over this trip. Ryan Moore is booked and he will have a target to aim at in likely favourite, Kings Advice, from the Johnston-juggernaut stable.

Newmarket 14:40 Bredenbury @ 4/1

She got her head in front in convincing fashion at Brighton striding away late on and was asked a massive question on her second start in the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes, behind the Queen Mary winner Raffle Prize. It wasn’t a bad run in sixth considering she was held up right at the back of the pack and not given a hard time when her chance had gone.

The drop in grade on Saturday can see her regain the winning thread.

Goodwood 15:00 Manuela de Vega

She put up a big performance in the Fillies Classic at Epsom when fourth, but didn’t reproduce that over at the Curragh last time. Her trainer’s string are in better form now and with a decent pace likely in the shape of the re-opposing Enbihaar and Dramatic Queen, our selection can drift in behind and pick up the pieces later on over this longer trip.

Goodwood 15:40 Stone Of Destiny @ 25/1

You need something with a touch of class, a good draw and a top trainer and jockey in form in this 6f cavalary charge.  This lad ticks all those boxes and was massively eye-catching on his run at Royal Ascot over 6f in the Wokingham Stakes. He’s not the easiest to handle so a straight 6f is perfect and Paddy’s paying the first 6 home.

He can land this big pot at rewarding odds for a stable that know how to win this.
