Racing Tips: Sun Chariot Stakes Preview and Betting Tips

Richard Hannon’s Sky Lantern heads a stellar field of 18 runners for the Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday and we have got free racing tips for this weekend.

The 1,000 Guineas winner, who encountered traffic problems in finishing fifth at Goodwood in the Nassau Stakes last time out, clashes with old rivals Just The Judge and Elusive Kate.

However, the Classic heroine is the class horse in the race and having won the big race here in May and, with luck in running, she will be a tough nut to crack again in the Sun Chariot Stakes race.

Just The Judge (8/1 Bet Victor), trained by Charlie Hills, ran Sky Lantern close in the Guineas but finished a tame 12th at Goodwood last time and will need to produce a career best to win this high quality race.

Elusive Kate (11/4 Bet Victor) has been extremely consistent this season and beat Sky Lantern (9/4 Bet365) in the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket in July. John Gosden’s ebullient 4-year-old was behind Moonlight Cloud at Deauville last time out but she won her previous race at the track, beating Duntle (11/1 Sky Bet), who is likely to oppose again.

Duntle, trained by David Wachman in Ireland, has been progressive this season and won the Windsor Forest Stakes at Royal Ascot. With the weather likely to remain dry, Duntle has a solid chance of winning her first Group 1 but just misses out on making the cut for our weekend horse racing betting tip.

Say (14/1 Coral) is another potential Irish contender in the race. Aidan O’Brien’s 3-year-old has had a long season but apart from a bad run in the Oaks at Epsom, she has been ultra competitive in her races.

However, Dank has already beaten her this season and it would take the leading players to perform poorly for her to win.

Another filly with a similar profile to Viztoria is Stoute’s Integral (8/1 Bet Victor). She has only had four runs in her life but has won three of them including last time when dead-heating with Lady’s First in the Atalanta Stakes at Sandown.

She finished down the field in the Nassau Stakes but is steadily climbing the ladder and after just four runs will definitely improve again but it's hard to see past the market leader as our racing tip for Saturday's Sun Chariot Stakes.
