The betting is really starting to hot up for this afternoon's ITV races. The Cambridgeshire is the biggest betting race of the day, but there's also four pattern races at Newmarket to enjoy, and two handicaps from Haydock to sink your teeth into.

Here are three horses who've made massive market moves during the course of the morning.

ITV Racing Tips - Market Movers


Copper Knight (2:40pm Haydock) 14/1 into 10/1

COPPER KNIGHT hasn't been running to his usual level in recent starts, losing out by at least three lengths on all of his last five starts. 

Those defeats have helped Tim Easterby's six-year-old drops down to an attractive mark of 95, and punters clearly feel Copper Knight is perfectly placed to strike.

Lucky Vega (3:00pm Newmarket) 11/4 into 2/1

Minzaal, Method and Supremacy all have their supporters in a red-hot Middle Park Stakes. This morning, though, it's Jessica Harrington's LUCKY VEGA who's been backed into solo-favouritism. 

Lucky Vega is already a Group One winner, having powered to victory in the Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh. Shane Foley's mount drops back to six furlongs, having failed to see our seven in the National Stakes, and ITV Racing viewers are clearly expecting Lucky Vega to appreciate the drop in trip.

Power Of Darkness (3:35pm Newmarket) 33/1 into 18/1


Power Of Darkness E/W3:35pm Newmarket Cambridgeshire Handicap (Heritage Handicap) 1m1fGET 18/1 HERE

Derevo and Bell Rock have both been well-supported in today's Cambridgeshire. The biggest market mover at Newmarket, however, is POWER OF DARKNESS.

Last year's Shergar Cup Mile winner finished seventh on his only start of the season so far. That hasn't stopped each-way punters piling in on Marucs Tregoning's five-year-old, and Power Of Darkness is clearly a name to listen out for in this year's Cambridgeshire!
