ITV Racing Tips - Thursday 24th September


Race 1 - Bentley Motors Nursery Handicap Tips


Last Sunset1:50pm Newmarket Bentley Motors Nursery Handicap (Class 2) 1mGET 7/4 HERE

LAST SUNSET has done little wrong on her three starts to date, winning well on debut before a pair of narrow defeats. Saeed bin Suroor's mount made her turf debut at Ascot last time out, going down by a neck in a competitive novice race for fillies.

Last Sunset finished a-length-and-a-half ahead of the favourite, Monsoon Moon that day. She's since come out and won well, receiving a rating of 93. Based on that, Frankie Dettori's mount looks very well treated running off just 84, and she can make a winning handicap debut in Thursday's opener.

Race 2 - Simon Scrope Dalby Screw-Driver Handicap Tips


VICTORY CHIME has won his last three starts at Class Three and Four level, carrying 9-9, 9-10 and 10-00 to victory. Ralph Beckett's charge drops back down in class, having finished fourth in two Class Twos. Victory Chime was only beaten two lengths off a rating of 92 in both of those races, and he's now been dropped to 91. A second win of the season beckons.

Race 3 - Premier Fillies' Handicap Tips

This won't be a big betting race for me. If I was going to have a punt, I'd side with FLIPPA THE STRIPPA. Charlie Hills' filly was running in pattern races as a juvenile, and returned to form with a strong runner-up effort at Lingfield last time out. William Buick's mount is two-from-two on good-to-firm ground, and looks well-treated at the weights.

Race 4 - Lengthen #YourOdds Handicap Tips


Floating Artist2:40pm Pontefract William Hill Lengthen #YourOdds Handicap (Class 2) 1m4fGET 3/1 HERE

FLOATING ARTIST, may be lumbered with top-weight, but if he runs his usual race, he should still have enough to win. Richard Hannon's charge carried 9-10 into the Copper Horse Handicap at Royal Ascot, and still clocked an RPR of 109 when placing fifth behind Fujaira Prince.

Hannon's four-year-old has been beaten in two high-quality races since. This looks a distinct drop in class and Danny Tudhope - the winning-most rider around this track in the last five years - is an excellent jockey booking.

Race 5 - Tattersalls Stakes Tips


Qaader3:00pm Newmarket Tattersalls Stakes (Registered As The Somerville Stakes) (Group 3) 7fGET 8/1 HERE

La Barrosa is the hot-favourite here, having hacked up at Ascot on debut. Despite his dominance that day, Charlie Appleby's charge is in with four experienced pattern-race performers here, and it could be worth taking the inexperienced favourite on.

QAADER was equally as impressive as La Barrosa when he won on debut at Newbury. Mark Johnston's colt ran green in both the Coventry and July Stakes, before a poor showing in the Richmond Stakes. 

Qaader has been given 56 days to freshen up, and I think this step up in trip will help Jim Crowley's mount settle better. At 8/1, he's worth a punt against the favourite.

Race 6 - Jockey Club Rose Bowl Stakes Tips

WITHHOLD won this 12 months ago, making all and beating Austrian School by six lengths. Roger Charlton's seven-year-old has shown patchy form this season, but Withhold only went down by a length to the talented Trueshan last time out, and boasts a perfect three-from-three record at Newmarket. He'll be the last of my Cambridgeshire Meeting day one tips.
