Racing fans are in for a treat on Saturday, with no fewer than nine meetings scheduled across the UK and Ireland.
Saturday’s opening meeting comes from Wales, where Bangor-on-Dee hosts eight races from 13:05. The going is good, and punters can watch all the action until 17:07.
Newbury’s card soon follows, with eight races taking place on good ground. Saturday’s card is dominated by the Group 1 Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes at 15:20, while Betfred’s “Extra Place” promotion will be available in two races at 14:10 and 14:45.
At 13:50, the first of seven contests starts at Newmarket, with the going also good at flat racing’s HQ in the UK.
Betfred’s “Extra Place” offer is available in races at 13:50 and 16:45, while four places are up for grabs in the Birketts LLP Handicap at 15:00, thanks to their “Super Extra Place” promotion.
Joe Fanning has been booked to ride Wizard D’Amour (7/2), and they could be the pair to beat at 15:00 after some consistent runs of late.
Thirsk’s meeting soon follows, with the going good-good to firm in places at the track in North Yorkshire. Punters can watch the opening event from 14:20, while the card concludes at 17:45.
The going is standard at Chelmsford City, with seven races scheduled between 14:35 and 18:00.
Betfred’s “Super Extra Place” promotion is also available at Uttoxeter, with two places up for grabs in the Optimum Pay Group Mares’ Handicap Chase at 18:50. The going is good for the opening contest at 17:15, while the card should come to a close at 20:20.
The final meeting from the UK on Saturday comes from Doncaster, with seven races planned between 17:33 and 20:40. Four places are available in the finale thanks to Betfred’s “Extra Place” promotion, and it would be a surprise to see Giogiobbo (9/2) out of the frame due to his solid record at Doncaster.
Racing in Ireland gets underway at 13:55, with Wexford hosting seven races until 17:25 on good to yielding ground. There are also seven cards to come from Navan, and the going is good-good to firm in places for their meeting, which is scheduled to take place from 14:05 until 17:35.
