ITV Racing Tips - Friday 10th September


Race 1 - Flying Scotsman Stakes Tips

I was really taken with Ribhi's debut win at Salisbury, and Noble Truth is respected dropping back down in class. The one I'm going to side with, though, is RAZZLE DAZZLE, who opened his account at the second time of asking at Newmarket.

Richard Hannon's colt made all that day, powering clear at the two-pole to win by six lengths. Andrea Atzeni only called on the whip once to keep his inexperienced mount on the straight and narrow. It was still very much an educational ride. 

Given how well he got the job done, it's safe to say there's much more to come from this son of Muharaar, and Razzle Dazzle could be the best option in this open Listed contest.

Race 2 - Flying Childers Stakes Tips


This one is all about ARMOR for me. Richard Hannon's colt bolted up in the style of a very good horse in the Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood. Armor was then well-backed ahead of the Prix Morny and, considering he travelled a little too keenly in the early stages, I thought he did well to finish fourth in that Group One.

Ryan Moore's mount drops down in class today and returns to five furlongs, having run over six at Deauville. Armor won over course-and-distance on his stable debut back in April and he's the one they all have to beat.

Race 4 - Mallard Handicap Tips

Emmet Mullins came to Britain to plunder several big prizes during the last National Hunt season, and he brings Sevenna Star - formerly trained by John Gosden - over from Ireland for this lucrative handicap.

While he may look well-handicapped, horses older than five have a poor record in the Mallard, so I'm going to take an each-way punt on HMS PRESIDENT, in the hope that he takes to this extended distance.

Eve Johnson-Houghton's four-year-old has been running consistently well all season. His worst performance came at York last time out, where he travelled keenly behind the leaders and faded late on after hitting the front far too early. I'm hoping Ryan Moore will be able to settle HMS President down and he could be open to further improvement over these sorts of distances.

Race 5 - Cazoo Handicap Tips


GALE FORCE MAYA was pushed up to a career-high mark of 92 after bolting up in a seven-furlong handicap here at Doncaster back in April.

Michael Dods' filly hasn't won since that excellent run, but three successive thirds - including a cracking run in the Great St Wilfried Handicap at Ripon - show she's perfectly capable of challenging off this mark. Gale Force Maya looks a solid each-way bet at 8/1.
