    Cambridgeshire Meeting | Tips & Preview with Andy Holding

    Cambridgeshire Meeting | Tips & Preview with Andy Holding

    George Elek is joined by oddschecker tipster Andy Holding to preview Friday and Saturday's racing from the Cambridgeshire Meeting at Newmarket.
    Starting with Friday, Andy takes a look at the opening four races on the card, kicking off with the Fillies' and Mares listed stakes. Roger Varian is bang in form of late but Andy looks to take Zanbaq on here with Crystal Caprice. Another Fillies' and Mares race follows next on the card, with 8 runners on the card Andy thinks Sea Silk Road is the right favourite but he looks for some each way value.
    Next up it's the Rockfel Stakes. Commissioning heads the market at 7/4 but Andy thinks the market is "all wrong", again he looks for some each-way value with many of the other runners in good form, with the added benefit of having run better times than the favourite where the draw could also be key.
    The Joel Stakes comes at 3.35, and despite just 7 runners several firms are still paying 3 places. Andy is all over Pogo citing it as the value bet of the day. Charlie Hills' runner can be backed at a top price of 5/1 compared to a worst of 4/1.
    Saturday looks all set to be a brilliant day of racing with two Group 1 races and the feature Cambridgeshire Handicap. The Group 2 Royal Lodge Stakes kicks the day off with Andy keen on Flying Honours despite the short price of 4/7, a superstar in the making?
    Next up it's the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes. Trilium and Meditate are joint market leaders at 5/2 with Andy keen on the former, another potential superstar in the making, as well as liking the each way price of Lezoo with William Buick on board.
    Another Group 1 follows with the Middle Park Stakes, Blackbeard opened up at 2/1 in places but is now out to 11/4. Andy was very very keen on Mischief Magic with one bookmaker going 5/1, although he's now a top price of 7/2.
    The Cambridgeshire comes next and as ever it looks wide open with a current field of 29 runners set to go to post. You can currently get 8 places with SkyBet in a race that Andy calls one of the most competitive renewals ever. Mujtaba heads the betting at 9/2, but our man draws up a shortlist of Savvy Victory (10/1) under Ryan Moore with stamina on his side, Dual Identity (14/1) and Kitsune Power (16/1), with the latter running for the in form Roger Varian.

    Ayr Gold Cup | Tips and Preview with Andy Holding

    Ayr Gold Cup | Tips and Preview with Andy Holding

    George Elek is joined by Andy Holding to look ahead to another weekend's flat racing with the Ayr Gold Cup and a nice looking card at Newbury ahead.
    Following the declarations for the feature of the week at Ayr, Khanjar heads the betting at 4/1 with the rest of the 25 runner field all 10/1 bar. Andy thinks the favourite is a group horse in the making and could well prove to be good value at the prices. At the time of writing SkyBet are paying 7 places on this one so it could pay to look for each-way value. Mr Wagyu and Bielsa are another two that catch Andy's eye at 14/1 and 10/1 respectively.
    Over at Newbury we've got the Legacy Stakes at 13:40. Dubai Future heads the betting here, his last win came in the Wolferton Stakes at Royal Ascot but was only good enough for third last time out in the York Stakes
    .The feature of the day at Newbury is the Dubai Duty Free Handicap. Warren Point leads the market here at 7/2 in an open looking contest.
    As well as previewing Saturday's action at Newbury and Ayr, the guys briefly discuss the decision to send Baaeed to Ascot over going for glory in the Arc.

    Doncaster St Leger | Tips and Preview with Andy Holding and Danny Archer (edited)

    George Elek is joined by Andy Holding and Danny Archer to preview the 2022 St Leger at Doncaster.
    At the time of writing New London heads the betting at a best price of EVS compared to a worst of 5/6. William Buick is on board and he looks to win the race for a fourth time, with his most recent win coming last year on board Hurricane Lane. The biggest dangers according to the betting are Eldar Eldarov and Hoo Ya Mal.
    As well as the feature race of the week, the guys touch on the rest of Saturday's card as well as having a look at Friday's racing with the Doncaster Cup Stakes taking the eye as we see Trueshan race once more.

    Haydock Sprint Cup 2022 | Tips and Preview with Andy Holding

    Haydock Sprint Cup 2022 | Tips and Preview with Andy Holding

    George Elek is joined by oddschecker tipster Andy Holding to look ahead to Saturday's card at Haydock, including the Group 1 Betfair Sprint Cup and discuss the world’s best horse Baaeed and his potential run at the Arc.
    Saturday's racing begins with the Listed Ascendant stakes in which the in-form William Buick rides odds-on favourite Naval Power. The second race of the day is the Group 3 Superior Mile Stakes, where Frankie Dettori rides 5/4 favourite Reach For The Moon. Andy likes the each-way value of Dark Shift 6/1 in this race.
    The 2.20 1m6f Handicap is the third race of the day and a competitive one. Andy likes the favourite Tamilla 6/1 and Kevin Ryan’s three-year-old Thundering each-way at 10/1. Next up is the Class 2 Old Borough Cup Handicap where William Haggas’s Soulcoumbe leads the betting at 5/2, who Andy is backing to go onto big things in the coming seasons. He also likes Euchen Glen at 8/1 in this one.
    The feature of the day is the 6f Group 1 Betfair Sprint Cup, where Minzaal is the 4/1 favourite. Andy likes the value of Brad The Brief at 14/1, who has won over course & distance this season.  
    The last two races are yet to be priced up but Andy has picked out Korker in the 16.05 and Gifted Ruler in the 17.14.

    York Ebor 2022 | Tips and Preview with Andy Holding and Ed Quigley

    York Ebor 2022 | Tips and Preview with Andy Holding and Ed Quigley

    George Elek is joined by oddschecker tipster Andy Holding and racing broadcaster Ed Quigley to look ahead to the weekend's action on Ebor week at York.
    Starting with Friday's card the guys take a look at the opening handicap with 19 set to go to post at the time of writing. An open field as you'd expect Juan De Montalban heads the betting at a best price of 8/1 alongside Cormier at the same price. Ed and Andy agree you could make a case for 6 or 7 to win this one with Ed keen on a 20/1 shot.
    The Lonsdale Cup follows which once again sees Trueshan and Stradivarius go head-to-head with the former a 2/1 shot and the veteran the 6/4 favourite with the ground possibly in his favour this time. Andy is happy to take the pair on with Coltrane an e/w bet with 8 going to post presently.
    The feature on the day is the Nunthorpe Stakes with Royal Aclaim a best price of 2/1 ahead of 4/1 shot The Platinum Queen.
    On Saturday we've got the Ebor as the feature on the card with Earl Of Tyrone a 6/1 favourite in an open field. Gaassee, Okita Soushi and Ever Present follow closely behind in the betting with Frankie Dettori on board 14/1 shot Trawlerman.
    The City of York Stakes at 3pm also catches the eye with Jumby, Al Suhail, Rohaan, Kinross, Sandrine and Sacred all entered.

Use the MUTE button please!

Love the podcast, including expert analysis from Andy Holding, but please learn to mute your microphone when not talking as there's a LOT of very distracting and annoying background noise, particularly coming from someone banging away on a laptop keyboard which is infuriating to have to listen to when you're just trying to hear what the experts have to say!

Presenters Mic

Listening to this podcast was difficult, when the tipster was talking all you can hear is mic noise from the presenter, including yawning and sneezing!
