ITV Racing Tips - Saturday 14th August

Race 1 - Denford Stakes Tips

I backed Native Trail to win next year's 2000 Guineas after he edged out MASEKELA in the Superlative Stakes. Andrew Balding's charge, who had finished fifth in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot, ran a cracker that day at Newmarket and should take all the beating here.

Race 2 - Fillies' Handicap Tips


MIDRAAR bids to land the hat-trick, four days after claiming her second victory in a row at Wolverhampton. William Haggas' filly powered to an impressive win over 14 furlongs in July, and was just as dominant over a shorter trip on Tuesday. Liam Jones fills in for Tom Marquand, and he can ride his second winner of the week.

HUKUM made the most of his three-year-old allowance to score a dominant victory in this race 12 months ago. Owen Burrow's stable star returns to Newbury on the back of an excellent win in the Silver Cup Stakes at York, and he sits a full ten pounds clear of his closest rival in the ratings. A three-pound penalty won't stop Hukum defending his crown.

Race 4 - Grey Horse Handicap Tips


I'm tempted to take an each-way punt on BRIAN THE SNAIL, who's dropped down to a mark of 79 on turf, a rating 21-pounds lower than his all-weather mark. Richard Fahey's seven-year-old has run well enough to finish fourth on two of his last three starts, and has been dropped six pounds for his efforts. He could run a big race.

Race 5 -  BetVictor Handicap Tips

ARATUS rounded off a brief two-year-old campaign with an excellent win at Kempton, running up to an RPR of 93 when comfortably beating three horses who're now rated in the high 80s. Clive Cox's budding star returned to action with a superb seven-length triumph at Doncaster three weeks ago, and an opening handicap mark of 94 certainly seem lenient.

Race 6 - Silver Trophy Handicap Tips


Tim Easterby has four runners in this consolation race and I fancy DANZAN could be the best of his quartet. James Sullivan's mount was beaten less than two lengths in the John Smith's Handicap two starts ago, and ran up to an RPR of 90 when second over seven furlongs last time out. He's a big player dropping back down in distance.

Race 7 - Hungerford Stakes Tips


Al Suhail tops the betting for Saturday's feature race, with top handicappers Danyah and Motakhayyel sitting just behind the market leader.

Race 8 - Great St Wilfrid Handicap Tips


Intrinsic Bond E/W3:45pm William Hill Great St Wilfrid Handicap (Class 2) 6fGET 14/1 HERE

With race sponsors William Hill paying out on the top seven places, I'm going to have an each-way bet on INTRINSIC BOND, who's been drawn widest of all in stall 20.

Tracy Waggott's four-year-old bolted up at Catterick two starts ago, clocking a career-best RPR of 100. Connor Beasley's mount then went down to Fortamour here at Ripon, when he was giving 15 pounds to the winner. I'm hoping he can continue his flying form with a massive effort in Saturday's final TV race.
