We've taken a look at all seven of Saturday's televised races from Newbury and Newmarket and picked out our ITV Racing tips.

Newbury takes center-stage on Saturday, as the popular racecourse stages two Group races and the Listed Denford Stakes. We also have three races to take in from Newmarket, including the Grey Horse Handicap.

Let's get into the tips!

Saturday's ITV Racing Tips


Race 1 - Denford Stakes Tips


With Frankie Dettori sent to Deauville to ride Mishriff, John Gosden has called upon Adam Kirby to ride GURU, and he looks to be the one to side with in Saturday's opener.

Guru just about prevailed over course-and-distance on debut, getting the better of a Sir Michael Stoute-trained colt who holds entry into next year's Derby. John Gosden's horses often come on well for their first outing and this son of Kingman can claim his second win here at Newbury on Saturday.

Race 2 - Heed Your Hunch Handicap Tips

I'm going to side with another John Gosden colt in the first ITV race at Newmarket too, with INDIGO LAKE coming into this carrying a highly workable mark.

Gosden's Frankel colt beat the progressive Favourite Moon first time out, before going down narrowly to a decent sort of Alan King's at Haydock. Indigo Lake didn't seem to relish 14 furlongs last time out, so dropping back to a mile-and-a-half looks a smart move.

Race 3 - Unibet You're On Handicap Tips


Afaak2:25pm Newbury Unibet You're On Handicap (Class 2) 1mGET 9/2 HERE

AFAAK ran a cracker in the Golden Mile Handicap at Glorious Goodwood last time out, chasing home Prompting before eventually finishing third. 

Charlie Hills' charge secured his last win off this same mark of 103. That performance at Goodwood signals he's certainly capable of winning again off this rating and softening ground only enhances Afaak's claims.

Race 4 - Betway Handicap Tips


Karibana2:40pm Newmarket Betway Handicap (Class 3) 7fGET 9/2 HERE

I'm all over KARIBANA in this handicap, despite the fact he's been pushed up top a career-high mark of 89. Richard Hughes' three-year-old secured his second victory on the bounce here at Newmarket two weeks ago, powering home to beat some decent rivals by a convincing margin.

Shane Kelly's mount ran up to an RPR of 93 that day, so a six-pound rise to a fresh mark of 89 doesn't seem insurmountable. Karibana relished the quick ground on his last start, and can claim a hat-trick on Saturday.

Race 5 - Geoffrey Freer Stakes Tips

The deluge of torrential rain that's due to his Newbury over the next 48 hours will certainly play into the hands of MORANDO, who's the clear class-act in this Group Three.

Andrew Balding's charge come up just half-a-length short of future Group One winner Technician in this race 12 months ago, and was only beaten five lengths on his only start of the season so far in the Hardwicke Stakes. Morando won the St Simon Stakes here in 2018. The softer the ground the strong his claims become.

Race 6 - Grey Horse Handicap Tips


Clareyblue3:15pm Newmarket Betway Grey Horse Handicap (Class 4) 6fGET 5/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

CLAREYBLUE hasn't got within three-lengths of the winners in any of his four outings in handicaps this far. His performances, however, have improved as he's dropped down the handicap, and Martyn Meade's three-year-old will be gaining weight on the older greys around him in the market.

Race 7 - Hungerford Stakes Tips

GLORIOUS JOURNEY won this race fairly comfortably 12 months ago, and scored in a Group two out in Meydan during their World Cup Festival. Things couldn't have gone any worse for James Doyle's mount as he made his return to action at Goodwood, where he was slow out of the gates and ran into traffic problems as he attempted to get involved in the race.

That performance has left him looking dangerously overlooked in the market, and the weather forecast will fill Charlie Appleby and Jim Crowley with plenty of hope. Glorious Journey looks a cracking each-way bet at 7/1.
