York, Ascot & Newmarket – Lewis brings us his patent for Saturday’s high quality card

Racing, racing, everywhere.

It’s a bumper Saturday for trainers, jockeys and punters with top-class meetings at York, Ascot and Newmarket.

Quite why they have to overload a Saturday with so much good stuff is a bit of a mystery.

That rant is for another day as we go in search of some winners across the board.

I’ve got my eye on a juicy each way Patent, which is a multiple consisting of three each way doubles and a treble.

The feature of the weekend is the July Cup at Newmarket (3:45) and there is a lot to like about the chances of Anthem Alexander at 12/1.

She showed that she’s trained on from her two year old days with a belting run in the Commonwealth Cup to finish third.

Having backed her then too, I was getting very excited about a furlong out and she was travelling like a beast but just failed to deal with the explosion of pace by Muhaara down the outside.

That performance strikes me as a bit of a freak win and I’m willing to put my dosh on the line that the selection gets much closer to him this time around on what is a sharper track.

Plus, it’s also worth considering that Muhaara also pulled like a train in the French Guineas.

A repeat of that failure to settle could make the 5/2 quotes look rather short in time.

The Australian sprinter Brazen Beau looks a bigger danger after his unlucky defeat in the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot where jockey Craig Williams to a solo route down the stands side of the track.

With James Doyle riding, I’d be shocked if he wasn’t in the first three but the value certainly lies with Anthem Alexander.

Staying at Newmarket, and Ayaar looks to have very sound claims in the competitive Bunbury Cup.

Luca Cumani’s horse has shaped like a horse capable of mixing it in pattern level and should continue to pay his way in these top class handicaps.

After winning at Newbury he was outstayed over a mile in a ferociously run Hunt Cup.

This drop back to seven furlongs is a big plus. He’ll go close under Frankie Dettori.

Pipers Note was unfortunately declared a non-runner when we was all over him last week at Hamilton but it’s time to go in again on his chances in the Listed 2:55 at York.

This horse is very progressive over five furlongs and he should be more than capable of putting it up to horses at this level. He’s uncomplicated and classy.

A potent mix for a horse on the upgrade. Stepper Point is a big danger if building on his latest effort at Sandown where he showed more sparkle from the front.

However, he doesn’t win often and may just set the race up for Pipers Note under regular rider George Challoner.

Good luck, all.

3:45 Newmarket – Anthem Alexander 12/1 e/w
3:10 Newmarket – Ayaar 7/1 e/w
2:55 York – Pipers Note 14/1 e/w
