Saturday's Horse Racing Betting Tips & Predictions - 24th October 2020


Seven race meetings make up the Saturday offering this week, including the final British Group 1 of the year.

That comes at Doncaster (13:10-17:10) in the Vertem Futurity Trophy while Cheltenham (14:05-17:35) hosts day two of the Showcase Meeting.

Further jumps action comes at Kelso (12:50-16:53) and Galway (13:40-17:07) while there's afternoon Flat racing at Newbury (13:50-17:20) and Leopardstown (13:20-16:49). Chelmsford's all-weather card (16:07-20:15) brings down the curtain.

Saturday's horse racing prediction includes a fancy in the big race at Doncaster.

14:55 Doncaster

State Of Rest to win and each-way - BET NOW

Aidan O'Brien's hopes of a tenth success in this race are carried by Wembley and he's got excellent form in the book, as does Charlie Appleby's One Ruler for Godolphin.

The former has finished second in both the National Stakes at the Curragh and Newmarket's Dewhurst but this will be a third Group 1 assignment in quick succession for him.

One Ruler meanwhile looked smart in the Autumn Stakes at Newmarket and has leading designs but both can be thwarted by Joseph O'Brien and Tom Marquand with State Of Rest.

The trainer/jockey combo took out the St Leger here last month and State Of Rest's third in the Champagne Stakes at that meeting was an excellent effort, especially when considering that Chindit and Albasheer briefly sandwiched him at a crucial stage. 

He was staying on again at the line and can offer some value upped to a mile against the front two in the market, with Marquand currently on the crest of a wave since that Classic win last month.

15:35 Newbury

Laneqash to win and each-way - BET NOW

The money was down for Laneqash on debut in an Ascot newcomers contest in August (7f, good to firm) and he readily justified favouritism with a three-length win from Arjad. 

On his next start he went to Doncaster for the Listed Flying Scotsman Stakes and finished a creditable second, splitting New Mandate and One Ruler in doing so. 

The winner was given a superb ride by Frankie Dettori that afternoon and, having been in front a long while, he claimed Laneqash in the dying strides. New Mandate won the Royal Lodge at Newmarket next time out, while One Ruler has since won a Group 3 at the same track and bids for Group 1 success at Doncaster today. 

Roger Varian's colt is clear on ratings, lost little in defeat last time and should take plenty of stopping in this Group 3 event with further improvement on the cards.

15:50 Cheltenham

West Approach to win and each-way - BET NOW

This handicap chase revolves around 2019 Ryanair Chase winner Frodon. He's a class above these rivals on paper but Bryony Frost's mount was perhaps not as good last season as before - despite bagging a Kempton Grade 2 in January - and might have his work cut out lumping weight to his rivals despite a love-affair with Cheltenham.

He's conceding over a stone to the able West Approach, another that runs this track so well. Of course, Colin Tizzard's charge is not a prolific winner but he did come good with a Grade 3 at the November Meeting last term. 

Harry Cobden took over on him in the Grade 1 Stayers' Hurdle at The Festival in March where he was pulled up but this should be more his thing. The rider will need all his skills to coax West Approach around but if he can, his partner should respond with a strong late challenge and is more than good enough to win this contest.
