We take a look through all of Saturday’s televised races at Newmarket and Newcastle and provide readers with our ITV Racing tips for Saturday 27th July.

While Irish eyes will be fixed firmly on the Curragh and the Irish Derby on Saturday, British viewers have several good cards to enjoy too. The ITV Racing team will pitch their tent up at Newcastle, where the lucrative Northumberland Plate will be up for grabs.

I’ve taken a look through all seven of Saturday’s ITV races and picked out my best bets.

ITV Racing Tips


Race 1 – Chipchase Stakes Tips

Major Jumbo1:50pm Newcastle Betfair Backs Racing Welfare Chipchase Stakes (Group 3) 6fGET 6/1 HERE
New customers only. 21+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.William Hill is operated by WHG (International) Limited, a company registered in Gibraltar.

MAJOR JUMBO has maintained a high level of form over the past two seasons, with his best performance coming in the Listed Queensferry Stakes at Chester last year, which he won by almost four lengths. 

Kevin Ryan’s sprinter has placed in two Group Twos over this trip, and ran on well for third on his reappearance in the five-furlong Palace House Stakes, Major Jumbo has a strong record on the all-weather and has the class to deal with what could be a tricky wide draw in stall 12.

Race 2 – Betway Handicap Tips


Boccaccio2:05pm Newmarket Betway Handicap (Class 2) 7fGET 5/4 HERE
18+ only. Gambling can be addictive. Play responsibly.

A fairly simple decision for the first of my ITV Racing tips at Newmarket, as BOCCACCIA looks far superior to anyone in this field. Charlie Appleby’s charge won on quick ground at Yarmouth, before carrying a penalty to an emphatic victory on the all-weather at Kempton in November. By Dubawi and out of a dual Group Three winner in J Wonder. There’s clearly more to come from this talented sort. 

Race 3 – Gosforth Park Cup Tips


Although there’s usually a bias towards the low numbers over the minimum trip at Newcastle, fast starters Ornate and Copper Knight have been drawn in eight and twelve, so being draw high may actually be an advantage. 

Another who likes to sit on the pace throughout is LORD RIDDIFORD, and he’s been drawn perfectly on the outside of Ornate. John Quinn’s five-year-old comes into this handicap on the back of a sparkling victory on the all-weather at Chelmsford, and could still progress beyond his current mark of 93.

ON THE WARPATH

Race 4 – Criterion Stakes Tips


On The Warpath E/W2:40pm Newmarket Betway Criterion Stakes (Group 3) 7fGET 9/1 HERE
18+ only. Gambling can be addictive. Play responsibly.

ON THE WARPATH traded handicap victories with rival Mubtasim in 2019, before dropping down to six furlongs and running away with the Longholes Handicap here at Newmarket. 

After nine months off the track, Charlie Appleby’s ran a cracker to carry top-weight into the places in a huge seven-furlong handicap out in Meydan back in February. William Buick’s mount has previous here at Newmarket, and seven furlongs seems to be his optimum trip.

Race 5 – Hoppings Fillies’ Stakes Tips


Aloe Vera3:00pm Newcastle Betfair Exchange Hoppings Fillies' Stakes (Group 3) 1m2fGET 13/8 HERE
New customers only. 21+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.William Hill is operated by WHG (International) Limited, a company registered in Gibraltar. William Hill is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission (Number: 000-039225 R-319373-009) for customers in Great Britain, and licensed by the Gibraltar Government and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner (RGL no. 034 & 042) for all other customers.

I’m really keen on the chances of ALOE VERA, who’s unbeaten so far during her short career. Ralph Beckett – a very good trainer of fillies particular – bolted up on her second start in the Listed Height Of Fashion Stakes last May. 

Clearly, this daughter of Invincible Spirit has had a few problems since then, but she did beat several rivals rated around 100 by three lengths at Goodwood, and this doesn’t look the strongest of races. 

Race 6 – Fairway Stakes Tips


Thunderous3:15pm Newmarket Betway Fairway Stakes (Listed Race) 1m2fGET 11/8 HERE
18+ only. BetVictor is licensed and regulated as an online gaming operator in Great Britain, Ireland and Gibraltar. Gamble responsibly. Terms and Conditions apply.

THUNDEROUS enjoyed an unbeaten juvenile campaign in 2019, winning three times over seven furlongs. Mark Johnston’s colt rounded off the season with a Listed triumph at Newbury, where King Edward VII Stakes winner, Pyledriver could only finish fourth.

Ryan Moore’s mount has to step up three furlongs in distance, but his breeding suggests he should get it comfortably and Thunderous has experience running in small-field events. Quick ground shouldn’t be an issue either.

Race 7 – Northumberland Plate Tips


Carnwennan E/W3:35pm Newcastle Betfair Northumberland Plate Handicap (Class 2) 2mGET 15/2 HERE
18+ only. BetVictor is licensed and regulated as an online gaming operator in Great Britain, Ireland and Gibraltar. Gamble responsibly. Terms and Conditions apply.

CARNWENNAN was very well backed for the consolation race, the Northumberland Vase last season, and absolutely bolted up. Results slipped a little after that, but Charlie Fellowes’ five-year-old was narrowly beaten under top-weight on both his starts back in February. He’ll carry just 8-12 on his back on Saturday and he’s clearly been laid out for this race.

Just Hubert E/W3:35pm Newcastle Betfair Northumberland Plate Handicap (Class 2) 2mGET 20/1 HERE
New customers only. 21+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.William Hill is operated by WHG (International) Limited, a company registered in Gibraltar.

I also fancy an each-way dabble on JUST HUBERT, for Martin Dwyer and William Muir. Just Hubert finished fifth in the Melrose Handicap last season, before winning on his first start over two miles at Musselburgh. Muir’s four-year-old finished last on his reappearance, but that was a very good quality staying handicap at Haydock, and Just Hubert only finished four lengths behind the winner.
