Tip 1 - Major Jumbo - 1:50 Newmarket, Saturday

Another very interesting Palace Stakes, but Major Jumbo looks a big price at 6/1 here for Kevin Ryan and Kevin Stott.

He ran some huge races last season such as when 3rd in this very race, in what looks to me to have been a better renewal. He followed this up with another fine effort when 2nd in the Clipper Logistics at York and he showed up very well in the July Cup in company that was too strong for him.

He’s good enough to win this, albeit he doesn’t get his head in front nearly enough. Today could be the day he belatedly lands a "big one" he definitely deserves.

Tip 2 - Magic Lilly - 2.25 Newmarket, Saturday

Three heads are often better than one although on the podcast this week Terebellum was the pick of Con O'Hehir whilst the rest of the lads were pretty confident Magic Lilly could give a few pounds and a beating to her Godolphin owned counterpart.

Magic Lilly was busy in Meydan and could strip a bit fitter than Terrebellum who is interestingly jocked up with Frankie Dettori in the famous blue which might not have been expected this term.Charlie Appleby's 5yo was super on her winter holidays running three times in Meydan scoring twice and a credible second to Barney Roy in a G1 contest and she can take her smooth travelling style into the 1m2f trip here and come out on top under William Buick.

Tip 3 - Waldkonig - 3.00 Newmarket, Saturday

Not going to be a great price for value seekers but the exciting Waldkonig looks a stand out play for Gosden and Dettori in the 3.00pm at Newmarket on 2000 Guineas day. Debut came in December at Wolverhampton in an extended mile novice event and under Rab Havlin we saw something rather special from the Kingman colt.

Connections have eyes on the Derby and currently the layers aren't taking too many chances with 10/1 quotes for the rescheduled blue riband at Epsom in July.

This will be a good test of those credentials but it will very disappointing indeed if the 3yo doesnt continue to impress and line up a crack at the big guns around Tattenham Corner in a few weeks time.

Tip 4 - Mums Tipple w/o Pinatubo - 3.35 Newmarket (2000 Guineas), Saturday

Pinatubo should be winning this years 2000 Guineas, clear on ratings, beaten the main looking rivals and reported to be in good health for this delayed first UK Classic of the year. That said, first time back, odds on and the gap from 2yo to 3yo always a conundrum for even the very best juveniles on paper the odds on may not appeal to the average Saturday punter. Making a case to back a different horse is much easier without the fav involved and plenty of books will offer this chance.

Kinross could be such type as if given a pass for a poor second run looked a star in the making and the same can be said for excusing the electric looking Mums Tipple who was everyone's rage horse after sweeping home over 6f at York last August.

Giving weight that day and scorching the turf Mums Tipple was subject of some big offers and some big praise and despite not going anything like as hoped in the Middle Park at Newmarket in September he went lame that day and is probably unfairly overlooked on return.

A price of 20s or bigger without the jolly appeal plenty and whilst he is plenty speedy the trip of a mile could be just about optimum this term and of course with no chance to find out in advance of the big day then if it is what he needs then it isn't in the price!

Back Mums Tipple w/o Pinatubo at 20/1 with William Hill

Tip 5 - Fanny Logan - 2.05 Haydock, Sunday

The podcast panel on the #racehour this week were all pretty keen that odds against about the very smart Fanny Logan represented the best bet of the weekend for punters.

Gosden once more to the fore with a classy 4yo filly who just kept getting it done in hot races last term and depsite a defeat at Santa Anita in November she looks to have a bit more in hand of her rivals that the odds suggest for this return at Haydock.

A slight question over the stretch out in trip but there appeared loads left with the manner of her victories prior to heading out for the States and if she is close to full fitness for this the current prices are not likely to last until Sunday afternoon.

Tip 6 - Run Wild - 3.00 Newmarket, Sunday

This race looks as tough as any contest you will find all weekend, but Run Wild could well make experience count at 4/1 for Oisin Murpjy and John Gosden.

As already alluded to she has picked up plenty of valuable experience last season and produced some fine efforts throughout. Last year her sole win came romping home at Kempton before she went on to produce fine efforts at the likes of Deauville when second in a listed contest and when 4th in the May Hill Stakes at Doncaster.

The main run was in November here at Newmarket when 3rd in the listed Montrose Fillies' Stakes behind Born With Pride and only a length behind Peaceful, who plenty of shrewdies believe will have a big season. That for me is strong form and her experience will work in her favour here.

Tip 7 - Cloak Of Spirits - 3.35 Newmarket (1000 Guineas), Sunday

As you'd expect we have a really strong renewal of the 1000 Guineas and whilst many will flock to back the likes of Quadrilateral, Love & Millsisle, Cloak Of Spirits is very interesting at 10/1.

The aforementioned Quadrilateral could be anything, but there wasn't much between her and Love at Newmarket in October and it would not at all surprise me were Aidan O'Brien's Filly to overturn that form. Millisle looks very quick and I'm just not sure about the mile for her.

The top 3 in the market do look formidable, but there is reason to think Cloak Of Spirits could deliver here for Richard Hannon. She has plenty of improvement left in her and she showed that when running huge here at Newmarket last time behind Daahyeh when 3rd. She just couldn’t quite get there to the front two, but stayed on very strongly showing that a step up to a mile might just be what she was looking for. If she can improve from 2 to 3, there is no reason she cannot be involved at the finish here and looks a rock solid each way bet.

Back Cloak Of Spirits at 10/1 with BetVictor
