ITV Racing Tips - Saturday 24th March

Race 1 - Novices' Handicap Hurdle Tips

Saturday's ITV action kicks off with a wide-open contest, where ATLANTA BRAVE could run well for Kerry Lee. Richard Patrick's mount responded to pressure well to open his account over hurdles at Chepstow in January. 

Atlanta Brave then produced a much-improved display at Hereford three weeks later, securing a comfortable victory under a penalty. Lee's five-year-old still looked green in the closing stages that day and hit the line with his ears pricked. There's clearly plenty more to come from this talented son of Aizavoski and Atlanta Brave could make a winning handicap debut this weekend.

Race 2 -  Handicap Hurdle Tips

SOCKS OFF claimed his first victory over hurdles at Sedgefield back in January, comfortably seeing off some decent rivals in the process. Aaron Anderson's mount has been beaten nine lengths on his last two starts, but ran much better than the bare results suggest and he could be a big player here with just 10-7 to shoulder.

Race 3 - BetVictor Handicap Chase Tips

He may be sitting near the bottom of the betting, but I wouldn't be surprised to see EDEN DU HOUX mount another strong challenge. 

David Pipe's nine-year-old bolted up off 125 at Ffos Las earlier in the season and was only narrowly beaten by Zhiguli at Sandown two weeks ago. The handicapper handed Eden Du Houx a mere one-pound rise for that excellent effort and Fergus Gillard takes three-pounds off his back.

Race 4 - Handicap Hurdle Tips

JET LEGS has improved massively since being stepped up to three miles. Martin Todhunter's six-year-old came home strongly from the rear to finish second on his first two starts over this distance, before claiming a one-length victory at Wetherby three weeks ago.

A poor jump at the second-last allowed market rival Shot Boi to open up a decent lead on Jet Legs at Wetherby. Todhunter's six-year-old pinged the last and quickly ate up the leader's advantage, winning moving away from his rival in the closing stages. Jet Legs remains well-handicapped and Patrick Wadge's mount could be hard to beat off this lowly weight.

Race 5 - National Hunt Mares' Novices' Hurdle Tips

18 runners will contest Saturday's feature and most bookmakers are going 7/1 the field. It's clearly anyone's guess who'll land this Grade Two, so I'll just be having a small each-way bet on handicap debutante, EBONELLO.

Jamie Snowden's mare won a bumper and a maiden hurdle earlier in the season, before struggling on very soft ground at Plumpton in December. Ebonello ran well at Carlisle last time out, losing out narrowly to a 1/2 favourite of Fergal O'Brien's, who ran in the Mares' Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham earlier this month. Gavin Sheehan's mount saw out two-and-a-half miles well that day, despite making a mess of the second-last flight. She could go well at a tasty price.

Race 6 - Queen Series Final Mares' Novices' Handicap Hurdle Tips

The classiest mare in this field is undoubtedly Bonttay and she could be well-handicapped. However, the exaggerated waiting tactics that Paddy Brennan always employs got them into trouble at Market Rasen last time out and I worry that the same might happen around this tight track.

One who should be suited by the characteristics of this course is NOTNOWLINDA, who hasn't seen out two-and-a-half miles twice this season. Over this distance, Dan Skelton's mare is two-from-two over hurdles and Bridget Andrews' mount could be hard to pass if she gets into a nice rhythm.

Race 7 - Handicap Chase Tips

DOYEN BREED looked destined for big things last season, twice placing in two Grade Twos for novice chasers. Sandy Thomson's eight-year-old fell heavily on his final novice start at Ayr and ran poorly on his first two starts of this season.

Ryan Mania's mount looked much more like his old self here at Kelso last month, following the impressive Minella Drama home over two-and-a-half miles. Doyen Breed remains on the same mark of 131 - a rating that's 11-pounds lower than the peak mark he reached last season - and this step back up in distance will certainly suit.
