Guide to Saturday’s Racing

Newmarket Racecourse

It’s a triple header for our ITV Racing Tips this weekend with action from Haydock, Musselburgh and Newmarket. We have runner by runner previews for all eight races on the channel, with Group 3 and Listed contests on the agenda as well as some very competitive looking handicaps.

Appleby looking for Gaunt to bear fruit

D’bai has been in decent form this year already with a win in Dubai and a very smart second to The Tin Man at Windsor last time. This seven furlong trip should suit him a lot better than six did on that occasion. Godolphin have a strong hand in the feature race of the day, with Dutch Connection heading the market. A specialist trip, our John Of Gaunt Stakes Tips can help to guide you to the winner.

Juvenile jousting at Beverley

There are a pair of two-year-old races at Beverley that will showcase some of the most forward of the juvenile generation. The Brian Yeardley two-year-old trophy and the Hilary Needler have thrown up some smart types in the past, notably the likes of Attraction and Easton Angel in recent years in the latter. Notebooks at the ready for the 2.40pm and 3.20pm.

Justify another triple crown winner?

It’s the final leg of the American Triple Crown at 11.46pm at Belmont Park as Justify bids to land all three of the jewels. Our Belmont Stakes Tips will give you the rundown of all you need to know for the New York contest, including a big priced alternative to the red-hot favourite, who has very little to find with the market leader.

Saturday’s Tips

Saturday isn’t just about the ITV Racing Tips, we have a 20/1 Early Value Tip who is making his handicap debut from a tasty looking mark.

A 9/1 Acca Winner on Thursday sets us up perfectly for the weekend accumulator tips and with an 18/1 Previews winner as well as three at 6/1 this week, ably backed up by 18/1 and 16/1 places, the big prices are looking to get us on the board once more.

We have had three NAP of the day winners in the last four days and our Saturday NAP can be found at Musselburgh this afternoon.

Stat Of The Day

The Michael Bell yard were 8/16 with raiders at Haydock during 2017 for a level stake profit of £21.90. Bell has two runners on the Saturday card there, Choice Encounter – 5.10pm and Highlight Reel – 5.45pm.
