Free horse racing selections for Saturday May 11

Racing

Keith Hamer expects Correlli to book his place in the Investec Derby on Saturday and has a tip for every race in the UK and Ireland.

Corelli can earn a place in John Gosden's team for Epsom by winning the Betfred Derby Trial Stakes at Lingfield.

The Point Of Entry colt is certainly bred to be a Classic contender, being closely related to 2007 St Leger winner Lucarno and 2012 Derby fourth Thought Worthy.

A late developer, Corelli did not make his debut until November, winning on his second start, and he was a cosy victor on his return at Yarmouth earlier this month.

Flattering was such an impressive winner of a maiden at Cork last week that she is hard to oppose in the Betfred Mobile Oaks Trial Fillies' Stakes.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained daughter of Galileo had not shown much in one run as a juvenile, but looked an exciting prospect when blowing away the opposition by 10 lengths.

It may have only been an ordinary event, but she looked different class.

Tajaanus can prove a cut above her rivals in the Betfred 'Supports Jack Berry House' Chartwell Fillies' Stakes.

Richard Hannon's charge was a Group Three winner as a two-year-old and shaped well when second to Dan's Dream in the Fred Darling Stakes at Newbury on her return three weeks ago.

The drop from a mile to seven furlongs can see Keyser Soze strike in the totescoop6 Victoria Cup at Ascot.

Richard Spencer's four-year-old looked like landing the Newbury Spring Cup when leading entering the final furlong, only to be pushed back into third place behind Taqdeer in the dying strides.

Barsanti can gain an overdue success in the Carey Group Buckhounds Stakes.

The Roger Varian-trained six-year-old has not won since August 2016 but has placed in all his four races since then and was a fine second to Idaho in the Hardwicke Stakes at the Royal meeting last year.

So Beloved can take the Flat honours by final winning the Pertemps Network Spring Trophy for a second time on a mixed card at Haydock.

David O'Meara's Dansili gelding landed this Listed prize in 2016 and was a close third to Oh This Is Us last season.

He has a third crack on the back of a warm-up run when he did not have the best of runs, when just beaten by Kimberella at Thirsk.

The better ground can see Chesterfield come out on top in the Pertemps Network Swinton Handicap Hurdle.

The eight-year-old, trained by Seamus Mullins, performed creditably at Cheltenham and Ayr on his last two starts and this could be his turn to collect this decent pot.

Pretty Baby can take the step up to Listed company at Nottingham in her stride by following up an eyecatching victory at Redcar.

The daughter of Orpen showed blistering pace without breaking sweat when making all the running to score unchallenged by five lengths in a good time.

She will be making a quick turnaround in the EBF Weatherbys General Stud Book Kilvington Stakes, but it was no more than a piece of work and she can reward in-form trainer William Haggas.

Conversant won in good style at Doncaster and can double up in the Mike Wood Memorial Handicap at Thirsk for O'Meara.
