Owen’s Outsiders: Saturday 33-1, 16-1 and 12-1 ITV tips

Owen's Outsiders

Saturday’s racing action comes from a whopping seven venues. Goodwood, Haydock, Newmarket, Curragh, York, Stratford and Lingfield all host racing and we’ll have horse racing tips from them all.

That includes a bumper ten-race programme live on ITV4! The feature contest is, of course, the Irish 2000 Guineas, which promises to be a treat. With ten races to chose from, I’ve been spoilt for choice in finding some ITV outsiders. I’ve found three at bigger prices who I believe can out-run their lucrative odds, find out all the details below!


1.40 Goodwood – Nuits St Georges (16-1)

He’s far from consistent, but Nuits St Georges placed in the November Handicap to cap off last season off a mark of 88. He’s a pound lower today and he returns to a venue which he scored at in 2019 over slightly further.

His opening run of this year came at Ascot, where he fairly bombed out and finished a tailed off seventh. That race totally fell apart, however, and it’s best to forgive that effort. Placing in a much better race to end last season, as previously mentioned, he’s more than capable off this rating.

He’ll relish stepping up in distance, handles the quirky track and on ground he’ll appreciate, he could easily fill the frame at a fairly insulting price.


3.00 Haydock – Dark Lion (12-1)

He’s won just one of his ten starts, but Dark Lion is a classy horse on his day and should appreciate this drop in grade. That sole success came in a novice race at Wolverhampton last summer, subsequently tilted at some tough races, including a Group 2 assignment.

Connections clearly think plenty of him and he didn’t disgrace himself in those lofty tasks. In terms of this season, he looked in need of the run when returning in the Listed European Free Handicap at Newmarket before a promising third at Goodwood in a conditions contest.

He now returns to handicaps off a mark of 95, which should be achievable if he can run to the best of his juvenile form. Roger Varian’s string are in red-hot form at present and the cheekpieces are also applied. At a price of 12-1, I’m more than happy to side with him under David Egan.


3.50 York – Dave Dexter (33-1)

Previously trained by Ralph Beckett, I firmly believe that Dave Dexter can be a successful sprinter for Roger Fell. He was a four-timer winner for his previous connections, including a win at Chepstow last season on softer ground. With all his victories having “soft” in the going description, the rain has come in the nick of time for him.

He ran flat on his seasonal/stable debut at York earlier this month, but given his record after absences, he can be readily forgiven that. He’ll take a big step forward from that effort and he’s two pounds lower in the handicap on this occasion.

His record on ground that’s soft or worse reads 1125103, which speaks heavily in his favour. If he does show the benefit of that opening run for these connections, he has everything in his favour to run a massive race.
