A WINNING WEEKEND WITH DAQMAN: Classic trials and big handicaps with BETDAQ bets up to 20.0 mix today, tackled by Daqman horse for horse. TOMORROW: The French Guineas and the Leopardstown Derby Trial.


⭕ 2.25 Lingfield (Oaks Trial) Winning trainers (20 years): John Gosden (4), Ralph Beckett (3), Aidan O’Brien (2).

Has Aidan O’Brien turned the corner, as seemed evident from his Chester double on Thursday? Do Team Gosden and Ralph Beckett have their usual depth among the fillies. All three stables are on show, any price the rest.

Danielle (Gosden) A daughter of Cracksman, has bags of stamina in the pedigree; won her prep at Wetherby last month 12 lengths.

Rubies Are Red (O’Brien) Galileo filly, sister to Breeders Cup and Arc winner Found; beaten twice on heavy but this is her first real test. BETDAQ 6.0 offers this morning.

Treasure (Beckett) Royal runner who won at Nottingham in the autumn on heavy. Stablemate of You Got To Me.

You Got To Me (Beckett) 62,000gns foal but 200,000gn yearling. AW winner who did not enjoy the heavy ground when behind at Newmarket in November. A Nathaniel, so early improvement expected.


⭕ 3.00 Lingfield (Derby Trial) Winning trainers (20 years): Aidan O’Brien (6), Roger Varian.

O’Brien runs two but, of other previous winners of this trial, only Roger Varian takes him on in defiance of his record!

The O’Brien pair, The Euphrates and Illinois, were second and third in the Ballysax in April on heavy, Euphrates the stronger, though Illinois was odds on.

Defiance (Varian) Highclere’s Camelot colt out of a Raven’s Pass mare, who is related to a St Leger winner on the dam’s side. Around two lengths behind Dee Stakes winner, Capulet, in the Royal Lodge.

Illinois (O’Brien) Brother to Chester Vase winner, Venice Beach; half-brother to Germany’s Arc and King George hero, Danedream.

The Euphrates (O’Brien) Son of Frankel with bags of stamina on the dam’s side. Gowran Park winner on heavy.


⭕ 2.40 Ascot (Victoria Cup) STATS: Just the one winning favourite in 10 years. AGE: 4yo 6, 5yo 3. DRAW; middle (10, 13, 13) or high (25, 23, 29, 24, 27); stall 2 won on soft last year. GOING forecast: Good.

1 Hickory (James Fanshawe, 6) Went close in consecutive races over today’s CD at Ascot last summer, beaten less than three lengths in total against 37 others. Just half a length down in the International Stakes.

2 Arabian Storm (Andrew Balding, 21) Kingman colt yet to show his potential. Down a grade after excellent effort from the front in Listed at Newmarket a year ago.

3 Streets Of Gold (Eve Johnson Houghton, 23) Five in a row as a 2yo, and has had high mark ever since, but best form, when 3rd of 15 in Group 3 Jersey Stakes over today’s CD, gives him a big shout here.

4 Mostabshir (Team Gosden, 19) Finished in front of Arabian Storm at Kempton the last day but no surprise if the Balding horse turns the tables on turf with that run under his belt.

5 Pearle d’Or (David O’Meara, 14) 213 at Ascot last season when hooded, climbing from class 4 to class 2. Hood reapplied.

Betdaq Betting Exchange 9.8 Hickory, 15.5 Arabian Storm, 20 Streets Of Gold


⭕ 3.15 Haydock (Swinton Hurdle) STATS: Favourites 3-10. AGE: None over the age of seven. WEIGHT: Top-heavy handicap this year and the usual weights rule (only two winners above 11st) hardly seems relevant on drying ground.

Afadil Thereabouts in big handicaps at Cheltenham and Aintree, then fourth in the Scottish Champion Hurdle. Freddie Gingell keeps the ride.

All The Glory First time in an open handicap, up from novice company, but she smoothly disposed of a big field at Newbury the last day.

Aurigny Mill Readily gave a stone to Tapley at the Kempton King George meeting.

Ballee Punished for back-to-back wins in class 4 and good second at Aintree the last day was in conditionals race (form can be misleading)

Lark In The Mornin Four-year-old winners are rare and conditions compared with his Boodles win at Cheltenham (heavy) are very different.

Mr Freedom Runner-up in the Sussex Champion Hurdle at Plumpton.

Nibiru You wonder why a horse who doesn’t like to be crowded is running in a race like this!

Pickanumber Improver who is 3-4 for Olly Murphy.

Rare Middleton Strong traveler, unlucky when pipped by Tintin in an amateurs’ hurdle (form often unreliable). Harry Cobden takes over.

Teddy Blue Last year’s runner-up will be 6lb lower

Betdaq Betting Exchange 7.5 Rare Middleton, 18 All The Glory


⭕ 3.35 Lingfield Remarquee, who wins when fresh, had to face – successively – Mawj, Tahiyra and Nashwa at Group-1 level last year.

She’s been kept in training and must win this Group 3 to go to Ascot for the Duke Of Cambridge Stakes.

Stenton Glider, whom Remarquee beat only narrowly in the 2023 Fred Darling, failed to score afterwards; has won only her maiden, always a bad sign.

Great Generation comes from fourth place in the Prix Imprudence which threw up Ramatuelle and Tamfana, subsequently third and fourth in the 1,000 Guineas.

But there’s an older saying: ‘It’s not what beats you; it’s what you beat’. Answer in this case: not a lot.

Her trainer is out of form (1-14); she is out of her soft-ground comfort zone; her pedigree says she needs beyond a mile; and she’s not well drawn in this, while Remarquee has a plum berth (stalls 1 and 3 have won six times in eight years).

What are points? Points facilitate a staking plan, which is the secret to creating profit. One point is whatever you choose: a pound, a euro, or whatever ….

Start with a bank and decide how much you can afford to lose over a period of time, and determine the size of your bets accordingly. Daqman makes this variation every day.
