Saturday 8th September 2018

We’re in for another busy Saturday of racing with no less that eight meetings spread across the UK and Ireland. With racing on the main ITV channel, it certainly is a quality day of flat action. The Group 1 Sprint Cup is the highlight at Haydock, where it’s all about speed in the six-furlong contest. Three more races from there, a couple from Kempton and another pair from Ascot make up the terrestrial coverage. You can find all our ITV Racing Tips on site now for what is bound to be an entertaining day!

Harry bids to make it heavenly Haydock hat-trick

A runaway four-length winner of the Sprint Cup last year, Harry Angel returns to the scene of arguably his two most emphatic victories to date. Prior to last years win, he broke the course and distance track record in the Sandy Lane Stakes as a two year old. Vibes are extremely positive from Clive Cox that he’s recovered well from the stalls incident at Royal Ascot which caused him injury and to miss the July Cup. At a track he clearly loves he will surely go well once again with James Garfield, second in the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest last time, giving him the most to think about.

Star filly Enable returns

Enable took flat racing by storm last season, winning five Group 1’s in a row which culminated in an extraordinary success in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Sadly injury has curtailed her campaign and we are only getting to see her back on the track now, eleven months on. But nonetheless it’s brilliant that she’s returning, although I’d be sure connections weren’t hoping for quite as tough a task as they may be in for. The 129-rated Crystal Ocean is in opposition in the September Stakes at Kempton, which will make life tough for John Gosden’s superstar. She has all-weather experience over him though, is in excellent hands and if fit enough, should take all the beating receiving eight pounds. This might be the best Group 3 we’ve ever seen!
