Newbury's Betfair Hurdle card and Warwick's Kingmaker meeting were canceled due to frozen ground, while Southwell's all-weather meeting has also been abandoned. Thankfully, Lingfield passed their early morning inspection today, and ITV have slotted four races into the schedule from Naas, who also survived the cold snap.

Here are our best betting tips for the all eight of Saturday's televised races.

ITV Racing Tips - Saturday 13th February


Race 1 - Opera Hat Mares Chase Tips


Elimay2021 Mares' Chase OddsGET 4/1 HERE
18+ only. Ts and Cs apply. Gamble responsibly.

ELIMAY bids to get back to winning ways in this Listed race, having run Allaho close at Thurles last time out. Willie Mullins' mare has to carry a penalty, but she should have too many gears for Shattered Love, and she's a far more accomplished jumper than the rest of the field.

If this race goes ahead, it should be the ideal warm-up for the Mares' Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. Elimay is currently 4/1 to win the first running of that Grade Two next month, so you're better off taking that price, than the 8/13 available on the favourite to win on Saturday.

Race 2 - Ladbrokes Daily Odds Boost Handicap Tips


Water Leith2:00pm Lingfield Get Your Ladbrokes Daily Odds Boost Handicap (Class 3) 6fGET 11/10 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.

WATER LEITH looked good when winning a maiden at Wolverhampton in December, and even better when following up under a penalty nine days later. I thought Secret Handsheikh was the main danger to Jim Goldie's raider, but now he's a non-runner, I can't see past the favourite.

Race 3 - Naas Handicap Chase Tips


Kitten Rock E/W2:15pm Naas Handicap Chase 2m4½fGET 14/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

I'm tempted to take an each-way punt in KITTEN ROCK, who won two Grade Threes around this track during his hurdling days. 

Edward O'Grady's eleven-year-old has dropped down to a chase mark of 123 following a lacklustre display at Thurles. Yet, some of his performances prior to that offer encouragement, and Simon Torrens takes a useful five pounds off his back.

Race 4 - Amber Beer Handicap Tips


CRACKLING was part of my best bets the day when he ran at Southwell last month. Martyn Meade's charge drifted markedly before the off and started very slowly, but found his stride two furlongs out and Daafr had to work hard to hold him off.

That was Crackling's second start after a lengthy absence and his first run over a mile. The handicapper has pushed Ryan Moore's mount up three pounds, but this five-year-old remains open to improvement, and he boasts winning form here at Lingfield.

Race 5 - Naas Rated Novice Hurdle Tips


Druid's Altar2021 Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle OddsGET 25/1 HERE
18+ only. Ts and Cs apply. Gamble responsibly.

Joseph O'Brien watched Band Of Outlaws win this race two years ago, before going on to score in the Boodles Juvenile Handicap at the Cheltenham Festival.

O'Brien has DRUID'S ALTAR entered here, and in the 2021 Triumph Hurdle. Hugh Morgan's mount has shown some ability in his four starts over hurdles, winning once while also running in two Graded races. He'll have to win this just to get into the Boodles, let alone the Triumph, but a good run at Naas looks to be in the offing. 

Race 6 - Betway Casino Handicap


Avorisk Et Perils E/W3:10pm Lingfield Betway Casino Handicap (Class 5) 1m2fGET 9/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

AVORISK ET PERILS  has been very keen on both her starts this season. Last time out, Gary Moore's five-year-old was still in with a big chance turning in, despite pulling hard for the first two furlongs, but Tom Queally found his path to the front blocked a furlong out and could only finish fifth.

Avorisk Et Perils has run up to RPRs of 64 and 67 off this mark over course-and-distance. A similar showing would see her challenge for the win here, so she holds plenty of each-way appeal.

Race 7 - Naas Handicap Hurdle Tips


Royal Rhythm3:25pm Naas Adare Manor Opportunity Handicap Hurdle 2mGET 6/1 HERE
18+ only. BetVictor is licensed and regulated as an online gaming operator in Great Britain, Ireland and Gibraltar. Gamble responsibly. Terms and Conditions apply.

ROYAL RHYTHM has placed on both his starts in handicap company thus far, finishing fourth at Limerick and third over two-and-a-half miles last time out at Fairyhouse. Phil Rothwell's five-year-old has run up to RPRs of 102 and 103 off his current mark of 93, and a similar showing should see him challenge for victory.

Race 8 - Betway Handicap Tips


Inevitable Outcome3:45pm Lingfield Betway Handicap (Class 5) 6fGET 3/1 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.

A really competitive handicap to end the afternoon at Lingfield, but I can see why INEVITABLE OUTCOME heads the market. David Loughnane's filly won well at Wolverhampton three starts ago, and has been beaten into second by in-form sorts since.

Luke Morris' mount proved she could stay seven furlongs last time out, but I think she's at her best over this distance, and the race could set up perfectly for her late surge.
