ITV Racing Tips - Saturday 3rd March

Race 1 - Silver Arrow Handicap Tips


I'm going to have an each-way punt on THREE SAINTS BAY, who thrashed Hayadh to win this race off a six-pound higher mark in 2019. The former winner will be having his first start for new trainer Liam Bailey on Saturday, but he loves running at Musselburgh and he's more than capable of challenging again.

Race 2 - Two Mile Hurdle Series Final Tips


In six career starts here at Haydock, CHTI BALKO has won three times, and never finished worse than fourth. Donald McCain's nine-year-old bolted up by 26-lengths here in December, and three defeats since then see Chti Balko return to his favourite track just one pound higher in the handicap.

Race 3 - Royal Mile Handicap Tips


Forest Falcon2:25pm Musselburgh Betway Royal Mile Handicap (Class 2) 1mGET 3/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

Being drawn in stall two will really aid FOREST FALCON's bid to win this from the front. Mark Johnston's colt finished behind some very good rivals on his first couple of starts, before bolting up by nine lengths in a four-horse event at Yarmouth. Franny Norton's mount looks well-treated running off just 83 on his handicap debut.

Race 4 - Staying Chase Series Final Tips


Despite clocking RPRs of 117 and 116 during a consistent season, STRICTLYADANCER remains ahead of the handicapper on his official mark of 112. Christian Williams' seven-year-old does his best work on good ground, and has had a wind-op since we saw him finish third behind Crossley Tender back in January. He looks a solid each-way play.

Race 5 - Scottish Sprint Cup Tips


Jabbarockie3:00pm Musselburgh Betway Scottish Sprint Cup Handicap (Class 2) 5fGET 6/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

I'm really keen on the chances of JABBAROCKIE, who bolted up by four lengths on his only previous start over course-and-distance. On his reappearance last season, Eric Alston's eight-year-old won well at Newmarket, and finished second to the classy Lahore on his second start at Doncaster.

Results faded as the season progressed, but those defeats mean Jabbarockie will make his reappearance off a rating one-pound lower than where he started last season. Jason Hart's mount is drawn perfectly out in stall ten, and he could be hard to peg back given a smooth start.

Race 6 - Stayers Hurdle Series Final Tips


Neverbeen To Paris E/W3:15pm Betway Challenger Stayers Hurdle Series Final Handicap Hurdle (GBB Race) (Class 2) 3m½f GET 20/1 HERE
18+ only. Ts and Cs apply. Gamble responsibly. Coral is operated by LC International Limited and licensed and regulated by the British Gambling Commission for persons gambling in Great Britain. For persons gambling outside Great Britain, Coral is licensed by the Government of Gibraltar and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.

Another wide-open handicap to delve into, and the one I fancy could run well beyond his odds is NEVERBEEN TO PARIS. Harry Whittington's six-year-old finished just three-lengths behind Hill Sixteen at Newbury earlier in the season, and crossed the line a tired six on his return after a winter break. Good ground is ideal and Alan Doyle takes a valuable seven pounds off his back.

Race 7 - Queen's Cup Tips


Alright Sunshine E/W3:35pm Musselburgh Betway Queen's Cup (Heritage Handicap) (Class 2) 1m6fGET 10/1 HERE
+18 only. Gamble Responsibly. Ts and Cs apply. Ladbrokes is operated by LC International Limited (Suite 6, Atlantic Suites, Gibraltar) and licensed (ref 54743) and regulated by the British Gambling Commission for persons gambling in Great Britain. For persons gambling outside Great Britain, Ladbrokes is licensed (ref 010, 012) by the Government of Gibraltar and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.

ALRIGHT SUNSHINE is four-from-four here at Musselburgh. Keith Dalgleish's six-year-old has won twice in National Hunt bumpers, and flat handicaps over 12 and 14 furlongs. Having been campaigned at a high-level last season, Alright Sunshine returns to the flat running off a decent mark for a horse with his undoubted class, and he looks long in the betting at 10/1.
