The final Classic of the season takes place on Saturday, with the St Leger headlining another excellent card at Doncaster. Before we reach that storied Classic, viewers will enjoy three further pattern races and two huge handicaps from across Doncaster and Chester.

Here are my best ITV Racing tips at Doncaster at Chester on Saturday.

ITV Racing Tips - Saturday 16th September


Race 1 - Champagne Stakes Tips


While he might not currently be much of a betting proposition, ROSALLION is clearly going to take plenty of beating in this Group Two.

Richard Hannon's charge won nicely on debut, before going on to trounce some decent rivals in the Pat Eddery Stakes at Ascot, running up to a superb RPR of 110. Blue Point's first crop have had no trouble adapting to softer ground and a reproduction of his last run would see Rosallion claim another comfortable victory.

Race 2 - Stand Cup Stakes Tips


BLUESTOCKING has acquitted herself admirably at the highest level this term and Ralph Beckett has found a good opportunity for his three-year-old to claim a thoroughly deserved victory.

Rob Hornby's mount has bumped into the classy Warm Heart on three occasions this season and came within half-a-length of winning the Irish Derby at the Curragh. After three placed efforts at Group One level, Bluestocking drops down to Listed company today and she'll be getting plenty of weight from the two older fillies behind her in the market.

Race 3 - Portland Handicap Tips


I've found two 16/1 shots to back in this wide-open sprint handicap, starting with SIGNIFICANTLY, who handed me a decent chunk of place money when he finished sixth in the Stewards' Cup last time out.

A former Royal Ascot winner for Karl Burke, Significantly has been in good form since joining Julie Camacho and his revised mark of 94 still looks lenient. Five-and-a-half furlongs should be ideal and Significantly has always been at his best on juicy ground.
Another with proven soft ground-winning form is a DREAM COMPOSER, who ran up to an RPR of 104 when winning at Sandown earlier in the season. 

James Evans' five-year-old flopped on his next two starts, but kept on well under Frankie Dettori to place third on his most recent outing at the Shergar Cup and the handicapper has dropped Dream Composer's rating below the mark he scored off at Sandown.

Race 4 - Camden Hells Handicap Tips


With Sweet Reward, First Impression and Box To Box likely to want to go forward from wide draws, this race could set up perfectly for BARYSHNIKOV, who craves a fast pace to aim at.

David & Nicola Barron's seven-year-old hasn't won since a course-and-distance victory at last year's May Festival, after which he was upped to a mark of 94. Baryshnikov has run well in defeat on a number of occasions this season and returns to one of his favourite venues running off a lowly rating of just 87. Ben Curtis will fancy his chances.

Race 5 - Park Stakes Tips


SPYCATCHER and Audience bring the best form to the table, and with the latter unlikely to enjoy so much cut in the ground, I've come down on the side of the market leader.

Karl Burke's five-year-old has bolted up twice on soft ground this season and was last seen losing out by just a short-head in the Group One Prix Maurice de Gheest. Burke withdrew Spycatcher from the Sprint Cup when the ground dried up last weekend, so soft going is clearly vital for him. If Clifford Lee can track Audience into the race from what could be a tricky draw in stall one, then I fancy Spycatcher will be too strong for his rivals in the closing stages.

Race 6 - St Leger Tips
