Horse racing tips today: Who to back at Yarmouth and Kempton | Racing | Sport

The recently formed father and son partnership, that their training licence now recognises, clearly have a smart colt.

HIGHLAND CHIEF (2.45, nap) ran his best race in defeat when third behind Pinatubo, the highest rated juvenile of the 2019 season, at Royal Ascot last season.

The strength of that contest was not only highlighted by Pinatubo winning his next three races, but also from Lope Y Fernandez the second home in that Ascot Listed contest.

He subsequently won a competitive Group 3 at the Curragh.

Highland Chief failed to build on that performance when a disappointing sixth of seven at Newmarket in September.

He clearly had something amiss as he was beaten soon after the stalls opened.

Oaks hope Born With Pride will be popular in the betting but her credentials fall short of the selection.

BILLESDON BROOK (3.55, nb), winner of the 2018 1,000 Guineas, can show her superior class by taking the Snowdrop Stakes.

The only concern about this remarkable mare is that she has never won first time out, but the opposition falls short of her ability.

Irish 2,000 Guineas entry HIGHER KINGDOM (3.40, treble) looks to be a cut above his rivals at Yarmouth.

The son of Kingman shaped like a smart prospect when slamming Star Of Wells on his only outing at Kempton in October.

In the opener CELESTRAN (12.45) can continue John Gosden’s excellent run of success by taking the Betway Handicap.

He was an impressive winner at Wolverhampton in November and is held in high regard.
