Owen’s Pattern Race Outsiders! 80/1, 33/1 and 16/1 Each Way ITV Tips

Newbury Racecourse

Just one week ago, the Outsiders series had its best day thus far with the ITV racing at Ascot. Thanks to a 33/1 winner and 22/1 place, there were plenty of reasons to celebrate! I’m visiting the terrestrial action again this Saturday, looking at the pattern race action on the ITV main channel.

We’ll have ITV racing tips for all of the races on the channel this Saturday. If you’re looking for some massive priced selections, then you should definitely stick around. After digging through the three pattern races in detail, I can present to you, Owen’s Outsiders for Saturday!


1.50 Newbury – Choritzo (80/1)

Although he’s more exposed than most of his rivals, Choritzo has still run to a useful standard. He was a cozy winner on debut and although he’s been struggling to match it at pattern level since, there are various excuses that could be used.

He was three lengths behind Saint Lawrence at Ascot on his latest start, where he did the donkey work and that perhaps didn’t suit. Things get no easier here, but his price does seem harsh on the face of it. It’s unsurprising to see the debut winners dominating the market, but there is no guarantee they’ll take a huge step forward.

Granted, he’s certainly got ground to make up, but as a son of Pivotal, he should improve for further experience. He keeps shaping as though seven furlongs and beyond would suit. There is plenty of time for David Loughnane’s charge to prove that assumption correct.


3.00pm Newbury – Max Vega (16/1)

Winning two of his three juvenile starts, including the scalp of subsequent German Group 1 winner Miss Yoda, Max Vega hasn’t quite stepped forward in 2020. That being said, excuses can be easily be made. He never looked comfortable on his All-Weather debut on seasonal return and the Derby was always going to be a tough task since.

His juvenile efforts really did suggest he’d excel over the longer distances and he stepping up to thirteen furlongs looks a great move. Completely unexposed as a staying type, the forecast deluge at Newbury plays right into his hands.

When the ground turns truly soft, he’s going to thrive and the strong form of the yard only boosts his already big claims under Harry Bentley.


3.35pm Newbury – History Writer

Posting a career-best effort to win a Listed race at Saint-Cloud last year, the rain has come in time for History Writer. Little has gone his way in 2020, too keen on his seasonal return over the mile at this venue. He was badly hampered in the Lennox on his latest outing, he was switching into the clear and making ground when checked and stopped to a walk.

He does need to post a career-best to be winning at this level, there’s no question. That being said, his very best form doesn’t leave him with an insurmountable amount to find.

A guaranteed stayer over the seven-furlong distance, he’ll relish the softer going. If they go too quick in the early stages, he’s a horse who can take full advantage.
