Horse Racing Tips: Keep the faith with Rabaah at York in Saturday double

Trainer Charlie Hills
Can Charlie Hills get the best out of speedster Rabaah on Saturday?

Alan Dudman is hoping to hit the target at York and Goodwood on Saturday as part of his latest Sportsbook multiple...

  • Rabaah down to 5f looks a huge positive

  • Top 2yo from last term out to prove himself

  • Alan Dudman's Saturday double pays 60/161.00


Ryan Moore Superboost

It's Irish 2,000 Guineas day at the curragh and Betfair Ambassador Ryan Moore has a leading chance in the feature race at 15:40 aboard River Tiber. Aidan O'Brien's 3yo was one of the top juveniles last season and has never finished outside of the top three in any of his races.

If you fancy that trend to continue today then you can back Ryan and River Tiber to finish in the top three at the super-boosted price of 5/42.25.


Goodwood - 13:30: Back Dragon Leader

Clive Cox's Dragon Leader enjoyed a very lucrative 2yo campaign with four wins from five and also bagged the top prize at Redcar with success in the Two-Year-Old Trophy.

That was an easy win, and nearly as impressive as his victory at York in a big Sales' race where he demolished a field by 5L.

He seems pretty versatile regarding ground, so that is less of a worry, and he should come on for his first run of the season at Ascot over 7f.

It was a new trip for him, and having made the running, checked out a bit tamely, but Cox is sticking with the 7f route and Goodwood will be less of a test in terms of every yard of the seven and he still looks interesting from his current mark.

Off 96, and judged on his 2yo form, he surely is a massive price at 10s when the prices first went up on the Sportsbook on Friday and Cox has a record of 10% win and 30% placed over 7f here.

To suggest he hasn't trained on after one run is ridiculous.

York - 14:45: Back Rabaah

For fear of following around Rabaah everywhere he races, I am giving the headstrong sprinter another go on Saturday as he's back at York after running at the Guineas meeting at Newmarket.

I put him up as a bet for his first run of the season, which was his first since being gelded, but the loss of his privates didn't really have the desired effect as once again he didn't really settle for his rider. He wasn't beaten too far by 7L, but I still think there's a talent there, and my first impression after Newmarket was that he needs 5f.

I get my wish on that front anyway, and a nice flat 5f around could illicit a better run, and hopefully the fizz is taken out of him. Charlie Hills his trainer managed the tearaway Bataash well, so he's got another project here.

The selection ran at York over 6f as a 3yo last term, and he's still very lightly-raced as a handicapper from a mark in the mid-90s.

A first try at 5f awaits and I will be really disappointed if he couldn't figure in the finish here as he looked so exciting winning a couple of times on the All-Weather.
