Newsboy’s Saturday tips for ITV races at Haydock and Musselburgh

JABBAROCKIE should be ready to roll in the Betway Scottish Spring Cup Handicap (3.00) at Musselburgh today.

Eric Alston’s son of Showcasing goes well fresh, as when scoring on the rescheduled 1,000 Guineas undercard -after an absence of 291 days – last June.

That victory was gained from a British Horseracing Authority handicap mark of 94 and, after defeats on his remaining five starts of 2020, the eight-year-old competes from a rating of 93 this afternoon.

Each of Jabbarockie’s seven career wins have been over the minimum trip of five furlongs, including a course-and-distance score in August 2019.

His record suggests the start of the campaign is the ideal time to catch Jason Hart’s mount, and this £15,462 first prize will do very nicely as Jabbarockie makes his return to the fray.

CARDANO gets the vote to rack up a hat-trick in the Betway Queen’s Cup Handicap (3.35).

Ian Williams’ five-year-old has been a real model of consistency, winning six of his 20 races and making the podium on seven occasions.

Cardano travels from Portway in Worcestershire to Musselburgh on the back of victories at Lingfield Park on his last two outings.

Having outpointed Centroid by a length over a mile and a half in January, my selection followed up over the same trip by three parts of a length from Myseven on February 20.

Hollie Doyle’s mount tackles a mile and six furlongs for the first time here, but the new trip looks a plus, and a 4lb rise for his last-time-out triumph looks within range.
