Saturday’s ITV Outsiders: Owen’s 18-1, 16-1 & 14-1 tips at Sandown & Wincanton 🏇

Owen's Outsiders

Saturday racing is back, and with it, Grade 1 action! Sandown is the feature meeting, with the Tolworth being the race of the weekend. The extremely exciting Constitution Hill looks to cement his Supreme claims and he’s a very short order to do so. Aside from that, there’s also ITV action from Wincanton, with lots of competitive handicaps in store.

We’ll have horse racing tips for all the action, including a NAP of the Day and Lucky 15. I’ve been slamming the crossbar of late with my outsiders and I’m hoping this Saturday will offer a much-needed breakthrough. You can see all my outsider picks below, including detailed analysis, best of luck!

2.05 Wincanton – Advanced Biotech UK Award Winning CBD Handicap Chase

This is a very competitive race, with the favourite at 4-1 at the time of writing and the biggest price on the board being 14-1. Rikoboy (14-1) isn’t perhaps the price I’d usually put up, but he’s at the bottom of the market and I’m not sure that’s entirely fair.

He posted some very strong form last season, including a runaway victory at Market Rasen and close second at Musselburgh. His sights were set high in two subsequent starts, latterly at Ascot, where was in the process of finishing a clear second before coming down at the last.

The winner Funambule Sivola and the second Monsiseur Lecoq have both boosted the form since, and he’s now two pounds lower. He’s more than capable fresh, thrives on softer ground, and shouldn’t be far away with a clear round.

2.40 Wincanton – Leading Ev Charging Solution Handicap Hurdle

Five-pound claimer Kieren Buckley has enjoyed a fine season thus far, winning on 17% of his mounts for a small level stakes profit. He’s partnered Ouro Branco (18-1) for his last five runs and I fancy the partnership to notch up a third win for Nigel Hawke, who deserves a change in fortunes.

He started last season with a victory at Wincanton on Boxing Day, finding the 2m 7f trip a bridge too far at Newbury subsequently when weakening into second late on. He arrives six pounds lower after a pair of lesser efforts, but it’s worth forgiving his Ffos Las run, where he shaped as though something was amiss.

The incoming rain should give him his ideal surface and stepped back up to 2m 5f, he can surely play an each-way role.

3.00 Sandown – Unibet Veterans’ Handicap Chase

Consistency can be hard to find with veterans and that’s what draws me to the beautiful grey Valadom (16-1), who simply doesn’t know how to run a bad race. He’s now a 13-year-old, but in four runs in Britain last season, he posted form figures of 1322. Latterly, he finished second in the series final at Newbury, only giving best after the last.

He’ll arrive to Sandown two pounds lower than that mark on the back of a perfectly respectable reappearance over course and distance last month. Totally uncomplicated, this front-running grey is well suited to Sandown, and if he gets into a good jumping rhythm, he may be hard to catch under Lilly Pinchin.
