Kevin Ryan's Terentum Star gets the nod in the Ripon feature as Oli Bell looks ahead to Saturday's ITV Racing action with a Yankee.
Oli Bell's Saturday Yankee
1.50 Newbury - Denford Stakes (Listed)
2.45 Newmarket - Randox Health Handicap
3.15 Ripon - William Hill Great St Wilfrid Handicap
3.35 Newbury - Ladyswood Stud Hungerford Stakes (Group 2)
The Washington Singer has a habit of producing quality horses and this year's renewal looks a belter with the well-regarded Boitron heading the market.
He was fighting for his head at Doncaster and still won cosily but they reach for the tongue-tie now and that's just enough to put me off.
I prefer The Trader for Mark Johnston as you know exactly what you're going to get. He's bound to get a positive ride from Ryan Moore and with his pedigree suggesting he'll be better over middle distances next season, it's pretty encouraging to see what he's done so far at two.
Elsewhere at Newbury, I'm sticking with the penalised Sir Dancealot in the Hungerford Stakes. He did extremely well to get up in the shadow of the post at Glorious Goodwood and there has to be some doubt over Gustav Klimt as to whether his brilliant two-year-old sparkle still remains.
Over at Newmarket, John Gosden's Jawwaal looks the best bet in the sprint handicap. I suspect the rattling quick ground has been dead against this son of Bahamian Bounty and the little ease underfoot will be right up his street.
Cheekpieces go on for the first time and I suspect he's very well handicapped when it all clicks.
The Great St Wilfrid is a cracking contest as ever and you could have three or four goes and not get close. Sky Bet are paying five places which should help out but Terentum Star looks to have been aimed at this ever since he won the consolation race 12 months ago and he's only 1lb higher than when beating Spring Loaded at York last October.
