Nicky Henderson aims to win back to back Cesarewitch handicaps following his success with Buzz last season. Ahorsewihtnoname is sure to run well but does have some stiff competition from the Irish raiders. Charles Byrnes, Bill Durkan & Willie Mullins run five against the home team. Below are are two big race horse racing tips for this Saturday.
Charles Byrnes looks to have the best chance of the Irish raiders with his sole runner Run For Oscar. Thankfully, the ground has dried up as this horse enjoys good ground and is running well this season. He finished third to Maze Runner over two miles on good ground at the Curragh on Irish Derby weekend.
Next time out at Haydock over two miles he stayed on strongly to win going away off a rating of 82. The handicapper has hit him with an 8lb hike in the ratings which is to be expected. Run For Oscar remains on a nice flat mark considering his hurdling form and hurdling mark of 144. David Egan has been booked to ride and he looks well drawn in stall 9 carrying 8-11 on his back.
At a big price I think Call My Bluff will run well following a strong run in the trial race here last month. He finished off his race strongly that day from off the pace and will relish the likely stronger gallop today in such a big field of runners. He has run again since the trial race at Newmarket finishing second at Chester on good to soft ground beaten a head by Emiyn.
He ran out of road that day as he would have won in another stride and looks a strong stayer. Luke Morris takes over riding duties which is no bad thing having ridden Alpinista to win the Arc de Triomphe last Sunday. Call Me Bluff is a proven stayer who is 3lbs well in on future ratings and carries a low weight of 8-6.
As mentioned above Ahorsewithnoname is sure to stay well while Scaramanga could prove the best of the Willie Mullins trained runners.
