We had a 16/1 stunner among four winners in last weekend’s ITV racing tips and now have seven more selections from Newmarket and York for this Saturday.
There is a fine mixture of group-class contests and wide-open handicaps to get stuck into and we’ve got expert picks from PA’s Keith Hamer.
2.20 Newmarket – MAX VEGA
The Ralph Beckett-trained colt got the stiff mile at Pontefract easily enough when bolting up by six lengths on good to soft ground and is rated likely to last out another two furlongs in the Zetland Stakes for our ITV racing tips.
2.40 York – LAMPANG
Tim Easterby’s juvenile went into many notebooks after quickening up to score at Carlisle, despite running green early on, and confirmed that promise when hacking up by five lengths at Ripon.
2.55 Newmarket – CHEROKEE TRAIL
Can make it three from three for trainer John Gosden in the Autumn Stakes after winning at Ascot and Newbury in likeable style.
Those victories have only been in novice company, but the son of War Front, out of Classic-placed Moth, appears to have plenty of potential.
3.15 York – COOLAGH FOREST
Was a good winner over the extended 10 furlongs on this track last month and can repeat the feat.
The three-year-old, trained by Richard Fahey, was put up 6lb for his two-and-a-half-length success, but won with such authority making all that he can defy the rise.
3.30 Newmarket – PINATUBO
The headline act on a quality and varied card, who should cement his place as champion two-year-old by taking his 100 per cent record to six in the Dewhurst Stakes.
Godolphin’s Shamardal colt has already earned an extraordinarily high rating of 128 with a series of top-class performances, culminating in a nine-length romp in the National Stakes at the Curragh.
His price is sure to be prohibitive, but he is the banker of the day.
3.50 York – DANZENO
After being placed in Listed races won by Dakota Gold in his last starts, can gain just reward reverting to handicap company.
Mick Appleby’s eight-year-old gelding retains his form really well, winning twice this season and finishing third in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot.
4.10 Newmarket – SEINESATIONAL (nap)
Looks a sporting bet to take the plaudits in the Emirates Cesarewitch at attractive odds for our ITV racing tips.
William Knight’s four-year-old may not be one of the leading fancies, but at least he is guaranteed to stay every inch of the two-and-a-quarter-mile trip.
Arguably his best effort to date came over an extended two and a half miles at Glorious Goodwood, when he was only beaten a neck by Timoshenko after leading briefly in the final furlong.
After running creditably back at the Sussex venue and at Ayr, Seinesational heads to Headquarters with sound claims in a wide-open race.
