April 24 Racing Tips: Able Kane looking to go one better at Leicester

Planet Sport's tipster returns to help you find some winners on Saturday April 24 at Leicester and Wolverhampton.

Fancy having a flutter on Saturday? Well, look no further as Ross Brierley is back to help you beat the bookies.

1.35 Leicester - Able Kane

Brierley says: "The first selection on a typically busy Saturday comes over at Leicester in the 1.35 and it's Rod Millman's Able Kane.

"Who shaped very encouragingly on his seasonal reappearance over at Bath and should go one better here on a return to a track that he likes.

"That was five furlongs on his reappearance, and stable vibes suggest that he clearly needed the run, so why he was backed into 6/4 favouritism is a bit of a mystery.

"But, he ran a bit of a blinder. He was switched off out the back, he had to weave through runners and came through strongly to finish second behind King of Stars.

"Now, King of Stars has gone on to place in a significantly stronger event, and that form looks good.

"He was a winner here over course and distance last season on fast ground, and Adam Kirby retains the ride as well.

"So, everything looks in place for a huge run for Able Kane."

7.45 Wolverhampton - Equality

Brierley says: "Over to Wolverhampton we go for the 7.45 - a five furlong novice stakes, and [there's] a huge eye-catcher last time out here in the shape of Equality, who goes here for Charlie Hills and James Doyle.

"Now, the jockey booking is very encouraging indeed. James Doyle has ridden two horses for Charlie Hills this season - he won on one, and he was beaten in a photo on the other.

"So the fact that he takes the ride here looks to be a huge positive for this horse's chances.

"He finished fourth on his one and only start as a two-year-old last season behind Good Listener, and then ran a blinder behind Crimson Sand at Lingfield; he was wide, he was keen, he refused to settle, he looked like he needed the run, and despite all that, he was still only beaten a head at the line.

"Now, Rosie Powers - who was back in third and made the pace on that occasion - has since gone on to run fourth in a listed race over at Bath, so that form looks very good indeed.

"He's drawn in [stall] six, which is a positive at this track. As we saw the other night at Wolverhampton, the kick-back is quite severe at the moment, so the inside rail is not the place to be.

"So, he should be perfectly positioned for an in-form yard.

"And, Equality looks to have a really good season ahead of him. He's a son of Equiano, he's got plenty of speed, and he could win this and then go on to win some nice handicaps over the summer."

6.15 Wolverhampton - Donizetti

Brierley says: "The 6.15 at Wolverhampton looks a tricky little three-year-old contest, with plenty of improvers on their handicap debuts for decent yards.

"But, they might have to go some to match the form set by Donizetti, and there could be more to come from Keith Dalgleish's charge, after a more than encouraging run - mid division - on handicap debut over at Newcastle.

"He was beaten comfortably by a horse called Blu Boy, but that horse went to Beverley on Thursday and won again in just as comfortable fashion, so the form looks strong.

"He's a Twilight Son three-year-old, which is a pretty good angle. If you just backed all of Twilight Son's offspring, in their three-year-old careers so far, you'd be comfortably in profit.

"He steps up slightly in trip, which should suit. He's closely related to a horse called Soft Summer Rain, who was placed over a mile-and-a-half for Mick Easterby, and this horse showed plenty of promise in decent races last year.

"He was seventh at this track behind Prince of Abbington in a race that worked out well, and sixth behind Tipperary Tiger, where he was only a place behind Blu Boy, who has since beaten him comfortably.

"But, the Dalgleish runner certainly improved for a run, and the yard are in fantastic form - they've had five winners from only 21 runners in the past two weeks, including runners over jumps as well.

"So, the entire stable is pretty hot at the moment, and Donizetti could be overlooked in favour of some more fashionable yards, and that means we might get a nice each-way price in the 6.15."
