Jockey on Racehorse

Saturday’s in the racing world is the biggest and best day of the week. The first day of the weekend is where viewing figures and crowds are at their peak and in general this is when the biggest races are run. Saturday is also when racing features on terrestrial television and has long been part of racing fans weekend routine.

Here we take a look at the pick of Saturday’s racing from the UK as well as the big feature races from around the globe.

Saturday Racing Tips – 17th November 2018

The pick of the horse racing action this weekend comes with the Open Meeting at Cheltenham. Prestbury Park is not the only place to see high class racing on Saturday though. ITV Racing are featuring two races on the all-weather at Lingfield. The chance to book a place in the All Weather Championships has been enough for trainers to take some of their leading horses to Lingfield for what looks to be a strong card.


Lingfield ParkIt’s a pair of Fast Track Qualifier races that take top billing at Lingfield on the Polytrack on Saturday.

The winner of each will book their place in the huge races at the end of the All Weather Championships at Easter and some very strong performers both on turf and all-weather surfaces are set to compete.

  • 2:45pm Betway Churchill Stakes - The Churchill Stakes has been held at Lingfield since the turn of the millennium and signals a heating up in the All Weather Championships. There’s a guaranteed place in the £1 million finals for the winner of this 1m2f contest. Addeybb, who had such a successful all-weather campaign last winter headlines the race but it is Primero who looks the value bet at 8/1 with Coral. The lightly race five-year-old has enjoyed his races on the all-weather since David O’Meara began training him and he can continue that form with a second win in a row.
  • 3:15pm Betway Golden Rose Stakes - The Golden Rose Stakes takes place over just 6f. There’s a place in the All Weather Sprint Championships up for grabs and you can be sure that last year’s winner of that race, Corinthia Knight, will get plenty of support at 11/2 with Coral. It’s Gifted Master who is the bookies’ favourite for the Golden Rose Stakes though and for good reason. The five-year-old has done much of his racing in pattern company. He was too good for the field when dropping down in class last time out at Newmarket and the same could well prove to be true at Lingfield where he is well priced at odds of 7/2 with Betfred.
