Robin Goodfellow’s racing tips: best bets for Saturday, May 29

Another Batt (Chester, nb, 2.40) took advantage of a slipping handicap marker to make a decent bet in Thirsk and could win the bookies for six again.

Backed from 14-1 in the morning, the six-year-old traveled smoothly before putting a competitive handicap in bed in style to endorse the excellent form of his penultimate run at today’s venue.

The race course and distance handicap run earlier this month, won by Grove Ferry, has already led to further wins for second place Dulas, Kynren, third house, Another Batt and Ascension, who was the last of 10 runners.

Even Crownthorpe, eighth on the line that day, ran well last weekend in a defeat at a high price in Nottingham.

Old enemies Another Batt and Ejtilaab, who was a roster behind Grove Ferry, renew the rivalry this afternoon.

Small preference is given to the former as Ejtilaab will have to show good speed out of the gate to maintain a position from stall one, while also facing stiff competition for the lead from the likes of Alexander James, King’s Knight, Hayadh and Azano.

The prospect of a generous gallop would be welcomed by Another Batt’s jockey Connor Beasley, who used his horse’s foot in Thirsk to good effect to take his record aboard the gelding to two wins from six rides.

Nothing about a song like Chester can be taken for granted, but with a clear passage, Another Batt should reappear.

Trainer John Quinn has good prospects of landing the Betway John Of Gaunt Stakes with track specialist SAFE VOYAGE (Haydock, 3:30 a.m.), who should prove a lot sharper for his seasonal comeback at the Lockinge Stakes in Newbury.

Elsewhere, the consistent CAPTAIN JAMESON (Catterick, nap, 5.55) – also trained by Quinn – could be in arrears for a series of creditable efforts in the final at the North Yorkshire venue.
