WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

13:50 Newmarket – Jumby

ITV Saturday starts here with a handicap over 6f. This looks wide open. JUMBY is a really good stick for Eve Johnson-Houghton and I have a feeling he will inprove a bundle for his first run back the other day. William Buick takes the ride on a horse who ended last term in great shape and stays 7f so should be keeping on well now the cobwebs have been blown away.

14:05 Thirsk – On A Session

A handicap over 1m. ON A SESSION is 2lb lower than when fourth in this last year and has a great each-way chance for David and Nicola Barron and Graham Lee. In his favour is a fabulous draw, three runs this season to get him race-fit, and a race makeup that should really suit. He’s a cracking each-way bet.

14:25 Newmarket – Fast Medicine 

Another handicap but this time over 1m 1f. FAST MEDICINE will take some stopping here for Peter Chapple-Hyam and Cam Hardie. My selection ran off 79 when scoring at Nottingham the other day and comes here with a 5lb penalty to effectively races off 84. That looks workable as he won well and the slightly longer trip will make no difference. 

14:40 Goodwood – Primo Bacio

Here’s a Listed fillies’ event over 1m. PRIMO BACIO should be too good here for Ed Walker and Richard Kingscote. the 111-rated filly was a fine fifth behind Snow Lantern in the Group 1 Falmouth last season and has always been held in high regard. This trip is within her compass although you could argue 7f is ideal. That said, I would expect her to just be a class above her rivals.

15:00 Newmarket – Khaadem

A Group 2 sprint in the Palace House over 5f. I’ll chance KHAADEM each-way here for Charlie Hills and William Buick. My hope has always had plenty of ability and ran really well at Meydan two runs ago when third behind Man of Promise. He didn’t do so well last time but that’s Khaaden. He’s in and out. Has a bit to find on ratings but if on a going day every chance. 

15:40 Newmarket – Native Trail

2,000 Guineas

The big one in the first British Classic of the season, namely the Group 1 2000 Guineas over 1m. There’s no doubt NATIVE TRAIL is the one to beat for Charlie Appleby and William Buick and I’ve long advised people to get on at much bigger prices than he will be on Saturday. The son of Oasis Dream is built like a bull and oozes class. He was the champion juvenile landing Group 1s in the National Stakes at the Curragh and Dewhurst at Newmarket.
