Ahead of the weekend’s racing, I’ve picked out two tips one in Ireland and one in the UK.

Enzani

Kilbeggan (17:45)

SP

One person who has been absolutely flying this week is trainer Gordon Elliott. He managed a four-timer at Downpatrick on Wednesday with some very impressive results.

His string look to be in fine form and he’s got a very interesting runner in the 17:45 at Kilbeggan. Enzani has been off the track for close to two years and this 9-year-old is lightly raced in comparison to some in this race. Versatile, he’s performed well on the flat and won a couple of races in the UK back in 2017. Potentially, this horse could be well treated now running off a mark of 112.

Davy Russell is booked to ride and, with the yard in such good form, I think it would be folly to ignore the fact that they’ve persevered with Enzani, who could offer some value in what will no doubt be a competitive handicap hurdle.

El Misk

Haydock (18:25)

SP

The 18:25 at Haydock is one of the better races on the card, a listed contest over 1m4f. It’s John Gosden’s El Misk who catches my eye. Second last time out in a small field event at Newmarket of a similar standard.

This four-year-old can score and go one better at Haydock today. Certainly, a horse that I think will handle a little bit of ease in the ground. A winner on the all-weather at Kempton twice over the trip. Today’s conditions at Haydock should play to his strengths and I’m confident he has got a win in the Tapster Stakes.

Ispolini of Charlie Appleby looks the biggest threat to our selection, but it is with Robert Havlin’s ride I want to side today.
