Angus McNae's horse racing tips: Silver can be talk of the town

Top presenter Angus McNae fired in two winners last week and returns with his latest Sunday offering with four selections to go at this weekend. Enjoy all the action from Downpatrick, Gowran Park and Salisbury live on Racing TV and Racing TV Extra.

1.50 Downpatrick: Silvertown

He arguably should have won last time out and compensation awaits here.

Silvertown did not get the clearest of runs and had to switch in the Downpatrick home straight before staying on strongly. That effort was a big improvement on anything he had shown before and, now on an upward curve, he can take another step forward.

Fakir D’Alene is a very credible rival, but that horse will probably go off at short odds and Silvertown is the value play.

3.30 Gowan Park: No Show

He is unexposed over this mile distance and looks well-handicapped off a mark of 58.

Colin Keane retains the ride and will have learnt plenty after riding him for the first time last time out. That effort came after a 10-week layoff and we can expect improvement now.

No Show remains a maiden, but nonetheless one of some potential at this trip. He looks set to lose to lose the maiden tag.

4.08 Salisbury: Sunset Bay

Ed Walker has his horses in tremendous form and can bag another winner with this consistent filly.

Sunset Bay ran very well at York last time despite not seeing out the mile in testing ground – she fired a decent speed figure despite conditions being against her. Returning to seven furlongs on better ground now is likely to bring out some improvement on just her second handicap start.

5.00 Gowran Park: Vario

This Kingman filly was pitched into a Listed race on her debut and shaped really well. Racing off the pace where prominent racers dominated, she did some good late work in finishing fourth.

Vario has to overcome a layoff here, but this does not seem a strong maiden and looks an ideal opportunity to get off the mark.
