ITV Racing Tips - Thursday 13th May

Race 1 - Betting Exchange Handicap Tips

Copper Knight will look to win this from the front, and looks perfectly drawn down the centre in stall nine. On the favourite's shoulder will be MUSCIKA, and he appeals most at an each-way price.

David O'Meara's seven-year-old has won twice and placed three times in sprint handicaps here at York. Muscika faded from the front when last seen at Ripon, but this return to five furlongs should suit and Shane Grey's mount looked well treated running off 90.

Race 2 - Middleton Fillies' Stakes Tips

A wide-open renewal of the Middleton, and I'm going to side with Jessica Harrington's raider, SILENCE PLEASE. Shane Foley's mount beat One Voice in a Listed race over this trip first time out last season, and went on to place on all three of her subsequent starts.

This daughter of Gleneagles was the beaten favourite in the German Oaks, and finished a close second to Tiger Moth on her final three-year-old start. This drop in trip seems sensible and Harrington's horses have been going well this week.

Race 3 - AJN Steelstock Handicap Tips

All eyes will be on Lord Protector and Wahraan as they renew rivalries. I, however, would rather side with JARAMILLO, who beat a horse rated 90 last time out, before still looking very green and fighting against his rider throughout. Ray Dawson takes three off his back, and this imposing son of Oasis Dream has plenty more improvement left in his locker.

Race 4 - Hambleton Handicap Tips

BRUNCH won twice here at York last season, winning over seven furlongs in July, before powering home late on to win the Mile Stakes Handicap during the Ebor Festival. 

Michael Dods' charge ran a cracker in the Lincoln on his reappearance, finishing a close second behind a very smart winning in Haqeeqy. The handicapper has only upped his rating a pound after that career-best effort, and Brunch can make it three from three on the Knavesmire.

Race 6 - Westow Stakes Tips

ACKLAM EXPRESS returns to British soil, having run three excellent races out in Meydan. Despite being the youngest horse in the field, Nigel Tinkler's youngster finished second to Equilateral in the Meydan Sprint, third in the Nad Al Sheba and a very close third in the Al Quoz Sprint on Dubai World Cup Night.

Rowan Scott's mount was well-beaten behind Winter Power at Newmarket in October, but did beat that same rival convincingly in the Julia Graves Stakes held here at York. Dropping back to five furlongs on softish ground won't be an issue. He's the one to beat.
