This Saturday’s ITV Racing comes from both Haydock and Ascot. Each venue hosts stellar action, with the former hosting the Grade 1 Betfair Chase. It’s small and select fields in the graded competition, but they’re packed full of quality.
The Scoop 6 contains races solely from the ITV action, with big prices available for anyone who can pick the winner of all six. You’d then get a shot at a further big prize the next week with a bonus race, just to keep the heart racing!

Tote Scoop 6 Tips
- 1.50 – Kid Commando was an impressive winner of a Listed handicap at Ascot three weeks ago. A seven-pound rise for that is far from harsh and this unexposed six-year-old should have more to offer with further racing.
- 2.25 – Wholestone is a very classy commodity on his day, including placed runs at Grade 1 level. Falling a long way down the handicap of late, he’s extremely well-treated off this mark. He relishes a stamina test and this race will be run to suit.
- 3.00 – Bristol De Mai loves Haydock and is a dual winner of this race. He went down narrowly to Lostintranslation in this contest twelve months ago, his sole defeat in five visits to the Lancashire venue. He goes well fresh and should make a bold bid to become a three-time winner of the race.
- 3.17 – Magic Saint posted a career-best effort when scoring cosily at Cheltenham earlier this month. He’s seven pounds higher today, but his overall profile over fences is progressive and the form of the Nicholls yard is remarkable. He holds obvious claims as a result and there’s plenty to like about his chances.
- 3.35 – Midnight Tune was a three-time winner last term, latterly at Warwick over three miles. She’s been absent since a run at Uttoxeter and isn’t the most consistent, but she’s classy on her day. She loves a slog in the mud and remains unexposed over fences, which gives her obvious claims.
- 3.50 – Earl Biffy Biffen looks the part on paper, costing 40,000 euros as a three-year-old. He’s a half-brother to the useful Christmas In April and Ben Pauling has a good record in bumpers. Pauling’s charge looks a big price and should be heavily involved.
