All eyes will be on the wonderful mare Enable in the Unibet September Stakes at Kempton today and we look forward to seeing her win easily in what is probably her last race in the UK. Remember though, this is a really good Saturday of racing, with a cracking renewal of the Group 1 Sprint Cup Stakes at Haydock and one of my favourites races the Old Borough Handicap. At Ascot there is a plenty of good racing as ever and I’m particularly looking forward to the Ascot Wine Club Handicap at 1.55.
Have a great day.

2.00 Kempton – Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Sirenia Stakes Group 3 (6f)
Mystery Smiles looks a cut above these and still improving. A ready winner at Chester and lost nothing in defeat in the Gimcrack, doing best of those racing prominently. Needs to show he goes on the surface but that goes for all of them. Unibet 7/2 win
2.50 Haydock – Old Borough Cup Handicap (1m 6f)
Euchen Glen for the inform Jim Goldie yard has been steadily brought along this year and no doubt the Ebor at York was his main target. This didn’t quite pan out, but he ran best of those drawn single figures and he ran more than creditably to finish fifth. The trip and ground is ideal and it is worth remembering how well he travelled in soft ground here in June (tired, wasn’t fit) Unibet 18/1 each way
This useful handicap hurdler Brandon Castle, who has won his last two hurdle starts, will think he’s been let loose with 8st-8lbs on his back here in a flat race. He headed off in front at Newmarket on his only Flat start this year before getting tired and has since improved over hurdles. Could go clear of these and with Hollie Doyle to steer, they might not pick him up. Unibet 9/1 each way.
3.05 Ascot – Lavazza Stakes Handicap (1m 4f)
Noble Masquerade has been brought along quietly and interesting connections went for the maiden last time rather than chuck him into a handicap, which they could have done. He was fourth at Newbury to another rival today Coconut and is better off at the weights. A good pace here looks likely, which will suit and this progressive type is a smart each way bet. Unibet 18/1 each way
3.25 Haydock – Sprint Cup Stakes Group 1 (6f)
Dream Of Dreams (nap) delivered a stunning performance to take the Group 2 Hungerford Stakes at Newbury last time out by seven lengths on good to soft. On his previous start he had been second to a serious rival today in Hello Youmzain in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, however I think this six-year-old for Sir Michael Stoute will reverse places today as Dream Of Dreams is stepping up all the time. Unibet 100/30 win.
4.15 Ascot – Porsche Handicap (7f)
Willie John for the Roger Varian yard has been difficult to read but it was definitely a better effort after being gelded last time, travelled really well but didn’t see it out. Drops back another furlong and with the yard flying along he is very interesting. Unibet 15/2 each way
