Two of our SmartPlays on Saturday run at Newmarket

It's King George VI day at Ascot on Saturday but Timeform look elsewhere for their three best bets on an action-packed Saturday...


"The lightly-raced Wekeyll is feared most on handicap debut after beating a subsequent winner at Windsor last month, but Weld Al Emarat is clearly held in some regard and should be difficult to beat..."

15:40 Newmarket - Dawn's Early Light

Dawn's Early Light looked like a young sprinter going places when registering a decisive victory at Ascot last time and, with the form of that contest already starting to work out well, it would be little surprise were Tom Dascombe's charge to take this en route to better things. There are plenty of potential dangers in this 20-runner field, not least the thriving Denzille Lane who has won three of his last four starts, but Dawn's Early Light might just be a cut above.


16:50 Newmarket - Weld Al Emarat

Weld Al Emarat held some lofty entries earlier in the season and, having got back on the right track when finishing second at Ascot last time, he can cash in from a lenient-looking mark. The lightly-raced Wekeyll is feared most on handicap debut after beating a subsequent winner at Windsor last month, but Weld Al Emarat is clearly held in some regard and should be difficult to beat.


17:10 York - Ayresome Angel

Ayresome Angel didn't need to improve to get off the mark at Chester last time and she is better judged on her previous effort when finishing an excellent runner-up to Lydia's Place. Lydia's Place has since boosted the form in no uncertain terms, winning twice, and Ayresome Angel, who still remains open to further progress, enters nursery company on a fair mark.
