Saturday racing tips: Andy Ayres picks out his best bet for the days racing while updating us on all the latest news from the tracks this week
WILDER and Fury will be knocking spots off each other in LA tonight but crafty Dean Ivory landed a one-two of his own at Kempton on Thursday.
Deano is sharper than a butcher’s knife and bagged a well bet double on this card courtesy of Villette (8-1 to 11-2) and Blaze Of Hearts (16-1 to 5-1).
Blaze Of Hearts’ win caught punters cold as Ivory also saddled the well-handicapped jolly Kadrizzi.
He finished worse than Mourinho’s front line and as far as the yard was concerned the right horse collected.
Rae Guest makes the Mona Lisa look like a chatterbox, but he knows how to get one ready and notched up a double of his own here through Roman Spinner and the heavily punted Wallflower (100-30 to 13-8).
Martin Harley took no chances on Wallflower and was still sticks-up when eight wickets clear inside the final furlong.

It looked bad and he couldn’t complain when the stewards got the hump and gave him a couple of days unpaid leave for his troubles.
Nick Gifford has spent more time in the wilderness than Ray Mears but he’s flying now and had a nice little earner with Fairway Freddy (9-4 to 13-8) in a 2m handicap hurdle at Kempton on Monday.
The gelding’s jockey Rex Dingle might sound as if he should be an extra in Emmerdale, but he gave this one a lovely gung-ho ride and is cracking value for his 7lbs claim.
Paul Nicholls’ number one Harry Cobden had a proper mare on this card.

Your best bet across all the meetings this Saturday
He fell asleep on Danny Kirwan in a match for the opener and let If You Say Run hang into the Silver Ring when she looked certain to win a valuable mares’ hurdle.
Happy Harry doesn’t make many mistakes but this wasn’t one for his scrapbook.
It was a bleak old day out in the rain at Lingfield on Tuesday but those jumping boys are made of tungsten and a few heavyweight gambles were landed.
Jeremy Scott’s Champagne Court (10-1 to 100-30) was bet like a good thing and duly bolted-up in the 2m novice hurdle.
SANTINI (12.45 Newbury) developed into a top-class novice hurdler last season and is built to be even more effective over fences.
Scott had a glint in his eye when talking about the horse and I reckon he could be a couple of notches above average.
Laura Mongan has been running against the wind since Harbour Law won the 2016 St Leger, but she paid for Christmas when Miss Yeats (5-1 to 15-8) landed some lumpy late bets in the 2m4f handicap chase.
Torpedo Tom Cannon fired this mare into just about every fence and is definitely a man to have on your side when the chips are down.
It’s hats off to Archie Watson who became only the fourth Lambourn trainer to saddle 100 winners in a season when Time’s Past got his head in front at Southwell on Tuesday.
Bold Archie could win a race with a three-legged Shetland and is nailed-on to go right to the top of the tree.
