Week-end preview

The good run continues with Anam Allta winning and Al Mahmeyah coming out second for good Place picks. I see a few good chances on the Saturday cards.

At Galway, Mannheim from the Ballydoyle stable makes a lot of appeal in the 16:30 Maiden race. This Galileo colt was an eye-catching third on his debut at a mile at Gowran Park three weeks ago. Like most of his stablemates, he should have improved for the run and will be definitely be in the Placings among the lot in this race. I recommend him as a strong each-way.

At Hamilton, Vizean should prevail in the 20:40 Maiden race. The lot is very exposed and it probably will be the case that Vizean wins by a rather big margin. My only concern is that she's come out second three times in four races, and as I've mentioned many times before, there is never any certainty in backing a horse that has come close but still hasn't had a good fortune to go past the finishing post first. But her chances to end her maiden tag must be huge in that race, so she might be worth the gamble. I recommend her as an outright win, but for skeptics she's sure to be in the first three and will pay as a Place punt.

Finally, in the Lingfield 19:55 Maiden race, Gin Twist from the Tom Dascombe yard looks a very good each-way punt. This Invicible Spirit filly has come close a few times and has done well on her only visit at Lingfield. She should be in the first three and a Place punt on her is recommended.

Win: Vizean
Each-way: Mannheim
Place: Gin Twist
