ITV Racing Tips - Saturday 22nd May

Race 1 - MansionBet Watch And Bet Handicap Tips

Hyanna E/W1:40pm Goodwood MansionBet Watch And Bet Handicap (Class 2) 1m6fGET 6/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

HYANNA produced the best performance of her 2020 campaign here at Goodwood, keeping on well to finish second behind Natural History, one place ahead of Goshen. 

Eve Johnson-Houghton's mare ran up to an RPR of 105 off an official mark of 99 that day. Having finished last of five in a hot-handicap over 12-furlongs on her reappearance, Hyanna has dropped back to a mark of 97 and Georgia Dobie takes a further five pounds off her back. Hyanna has placed on all three of her starts around this track and very soft ground won't be a bother.

Race 2 - Casumo Handicap Tips

For the third time this season, MOLLS MEMORY got off to a very sluggish start in the Jigsaw Handicap at York eight days ago. As Boardman set off to claim an impressive win, Ed Walker's mare stayed on from the rear to finish five lengths behind the winner in fifth.

Oisin Muprhy's mount carries almost a stone less on her back today, and her two most recent wins both came on heavy ground. She could go really well here, if a little more alert out of the stalls.

Race 3 - Festival Stakes Tips

AL ZARAQAAN looked a really progressive sort when bolting up on his reappearance at Kempton, winning what should have been a very competitive handicap with consummate ease. William Haggas' four-year-old now drops back down in class, having finished fourth behind Sir Ron Priestley and Pyledriver in the Jockey Clud Stakes, and I fancy the favourite will take all the beating here.

Race 4 - Download The Casumo App Today Handicap Tips

HIROSHIMA was my NAP of the day when he won at Ascot last time out. Considering how comfortably he got the job done, I felt the four-pound rise he received was fairly lenient. John Ryan's five-year-old has run well on very soft ground before, and he remains a progressive sort over staying distances.

Race 5 - Bronte Cup Tips

Mighty Blue2:40pm York William Hill Bronte Cup Fillies' Stakes (Group 3) 1m6fGET 10/3 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

Both Irish raiders are greatly respected here. MIGHTY BLUE bolted up in the Vintage Tipple Stakes at Gowran Park three weeks ago, where Flor De La Luna was the beaten favourite back in eighth. Joseph O'Brien's mare has already run well on British soil once this year, staying on for third in the Mares' Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, and she could be hard to beat.

Race 6 - Silver Bowl Handicap Tips

A really tricky little race this. With three-paid places available, I'm going to take an each-way punt on MASTER ZOFFANY, who relished his return to softer ground when bolting up in a good-quality handicap at Chester last time out. 

Paul Hanagan has chosen to partner Master Zoffany over stablemate Seasett, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see Richard Fahey's three-year-old challenging once again.

Race 8 - Sandy Lane Stakes Tips

Light Refrain E/W3:35pm Haydock Casumo Bet10Get10 Sandy Lane Stakes (Group 2) 6fGET 9/1 HERE

Despite securing some good results over seven furlongs, LIGHT REFRAIN successfully dropped back to six furlongs last season. William Haggas' charge won really well on the all-weather at Newcastle, before coming up a neck short of Nastase in the Rockingham Stakes.

On her reappearance, Light Refrain swooped from the rear and surged clear late on to win the Kilvington Stakes, again on soft ground. This daughter of Frankel settles well and shows plenty of late speed. She could run another massive race at a tempting, each-way price.

Race 9 - William Hill Handicap (Class 2) 5f

Zargun E/W3:50pm York williamhill.com Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap (Class 2) 5fGET 14/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

After finishing last of six on his British debut at Lingfield, ZARGUN carried odds of 125/1 into the stalls ahead of the Churchill Tyres Handicap here at York last week. Scott Dixon's recruit kept up with the pace the whole way, and it took late charges from Mr Lupton and Danzan to relgate Zargun back to third.

This son of Rock Of Gibraltar had run over seven furlongs and a mile during his time in Germany. However, as he's got older, Zargun has settled back to sprinting distances, and even finished fourth over just four furlongs at Dortmund in September. Considering he ran up to an RPR of 102 last time out, David Probert's mount looks well treated having only been upped a pound to 95, and he could go well at a price once again.

Race 10 - Temple Stakes Tips

I really like the chances of LIBERTY BEACH, who's won first time out at the start of both previous seasons, and won the Cecil Frail over six furlongs here at Haydock on her reappearance 12 months ago.

John Quinn's filly ran keen on all of her starts last season, but still managed to place in the King's Stand, the Coral Charge and on her final start of 2020 in the Abbaye out in France. She dealt with heavy ground really well the last day and, if she's learned how to settle, she could progress into a Group One winner during the upcoming campaign.
