Who's your Banker of the Day on Saturday?

There are three fantastic cards to look forward to on Saturday, with the Grimthorpe at Doncaster, the Morebattle at Kelso and the Greatwood Gold Cup at Newbury.

We've picked out four leading contenders from four of the best races across the cards on Saturday and are asking you, our Coral Racing Club members, if you had to vote for one to be your Banker of the Day, who would you pick?

The horse who gets the most votes will be put into an exclusive Coral Racing Club Odds Booster that will be available under Specials on the Horse Racing page shortly after the poll closes on Friday at 1pm.

Banker of the Day Preview

13:55 Newbury – Grandeur D'Ame

Grandeur D'Ame has impressed so far in his chasing career, winning three of his nine runs over the bigger obstacles, including an emphatic twenty five length victory at Wetherby three starts ago. He's proven to be versatile in terms of ground, having won contests in conditions ranging from good to heavy, so he should be able to handle the soft going at Newbury this weekend. 

Can he get back to winning ways?

14:17 Kelso – Jango Baie

Jango Baie has been fantastic since making his racecourse debut in November of last year. After finishing second in his sole point-to-point start, he scored in a novice hurdle at Ascot before claiming victory in the Grade 1 Formby Novices' Hurdle at Aintree on Boxing Day. He was beaten by just over a length in his last contest, by Handstands who was in receipt of five pounds from Jango Baie, but was well clear of the rest of the field.

Can he bounce back on Saturday?

14:50 Kelso – Under Control

Under Control will look to carry the famous green and gold hoops of JP McManus to victory for the fourth time since moving to Nicky Henderson's yard. He won three out of four races towards the end of last season, including in a Grade 3 Juvenile Hurdle at Cheltenham in April. His seasonal return didn't quite go to plan, but he bounced back with a solid second place finish at Doncaster in January.

Can he go one better this weekend?

15:40 Doncaster – Some Scope

Some Scope is in incredible form right now, winning his last two races by a combined eight lengths, including a rampant display at Doncaster last time out over a slightly shorter trip of three miles. Gavin Sheehan has ridden him to his previous three victories and will partner him again on Saturday. 

Can the pair land their hat-trick in the Grimthorpe?
