3,509/1 Racing Post Weekender Acca!

Harry Angel wins the Sprint Cup 2017

The action comes thick and fast from across the UK and Ireland this weekend, with plenty of racing on the box for you fans of our ITV Racing tips.

If you’re struggling with what to back though, we’ve lent a helping hand from the folks at the Racing Post Weekender.

We’ve had a good flick through this week’s edition and picked out five fancies that make up our RP Weekend acca.

First In Line (1:50pm Haydock)

David Milnes

First In Line should appreciate any rain that falls at Haydock before the weekend, when he is booked for the opening Garswood Handicap on Saturday.

The John Gosden-trained chestnut would have found the ground plenty quick enough at York last time out but still ran a huge race to finish runner-up to Hamish.

The son of New Approach was impressive when scoring previously on an easy surface at Doncaster and that form has been advertised since.

Best Solution (2:05 pm Kempton)

David Milnes

Best Solution can make a successful return from his summer break when he heads to Kempton on Saturday for the Group Three Sun Racing September Stakes.

The 1m4f contest featured Enable and Crystal Ocean a year ago but doesn’t look that strong this time around, which may allow the five-year-old a winning return.

Saeed bin Suroor’s high-class journeyman was a gutsy winner of the Group One Caulfield Cup during a stint in Australia last winter before a never-dangerous eighth in the Melbourne Cup.

Given a nice break since then, Best Solution has looked better than ever in his work on the watered gallop of late and can be expected to use this as a return ticket to Australia.

Miss O Connor (2:25pm Haydock)

Stuart Redding

Miss O Connor can take her unbeaten streak to four in this Group Three.

The four-year-old won her belated debut at Gowran Park in May and has added two more victories since joining William Haggas from Johnny Feane, including a Listed race over this course and distance last month.

She should get the give underfoot that seems to suit and can make the most of her fillies’ allowance back against the boys here.

Alright Sunshine (3:35pm Haydock)

Norman Chorley

Keith Dalgleish has a progressive sort on his hands in Alright Sunshine and this lightly-raced four-year-old can take the Old Borough Cup at Haydock.

A triple bumper winner, he has now also scored three times on the Flat, making it six victories from nine starts, and impressed with the way he despatched a solid yardstick in Jabbaar at Musselburgh last time out.

Khaadem (4:10 Haydock)

James Burn

Charlie Hills has a fine touch with speedsters, which can continue with Khaadem in Haydock’s Sprint Cup on Saturday.

The three-year-old is a horse that connections have long thought plenty of and he was well fancied for the Middle Park last year only to suffer a late setback and miss the race.

He scoped poorly after failing to fire in the Commonwealth Cup and showed what he was made of with a convincing display in the Unibet Stewards’ Cup at Glorious Goodwood.

Hills won the same race in 2015 with Magical Memory, who finished third in the Sprint Cup, but Khaadem is thought to have a better chance and thrilled the trainer in his work last week.

A son of top sprint sire Dark Angel, he is open to loads of improvement after just seven starts and is getting better mentally all the time.
