Best horse racing tips: Sun Racing’s top picks for today’s racing at Doncaster, Chester, Chelmsford, Bath, Musselburgh and Lingfield
THERE is a brilliant weekend of racing in store, with top-class action at Doncaster the main focus of attention.
The Sun Racing team have been studying the form and have picked out a best bet and each-way tip for each meeting on Saturday.
3.35 Lah Ti Dar – Exciting filly returned to action with a brilliant win at York last month. She should relish this trip and trainer John Gosden has an excellent record in the final Classic of the season.
1.50 Marnie James – Shaped as though this 5.5f trip would be perfect when third at York last time. Still progressing and talented claimer takes off a handy 3lb.
2.40 Blakeney Point – Classy stayer has been holding his form well this season, including a cracking fifth in the Ebor last time. Well drawn here and will appreciate this softer ground.
3.15 Dave Dexter – Made a big impression when winning on debut at Ascot. Hasn’t quite gone on as expected but he is eased in class now and has been handed a good draw.
1.40 Daphinia – Ran an excellent second to Signora Cabello (has since won two Group 2s) at York in May. Off since finishing down the field at Royal Ascot but found a good opening on her return.
2.15 Breathless Times – Won twice on the all-weather earlier in the year before excellent fourth on AW Championships day. Well beaten on turf the last twice but since had a wind op and back on his favoured surface.

4.20 Daira Prince – Won cosily at Nottingham and Ripon earlier on the season. Short of his best the last twice but now eased in grade and worth another chance.
3.45 Nibras Again – Broke his maiden in comfortable fashion at Haydock two starts ago. Unsuited by soft ground at Sandown last time and should bounce back on this quicker surface.
5.15 Artarmon – Stoutly-bred three-year-old has won three of his last four starts. Well on top when successful at Chelmsford last time and 4lb rise could underestimate him.
3.30 Primeiro Boy – Hampered when sixth over course and distance last time out. Dropped in class and a better effort is expected with talented apprentice on board.
3.05 Raid – Highly tried in three starts this season and things didn’t go his way at Goodwood last time. Well suited by the race conditions and this looks a good opening.
1.55 Staunch – Plenty of promise in two starts last year, and well-backed when down the field on return to action last month. Will strip fitter for that and better expected now.
