Saturday’s ITV Racing


Race 1 - Newbury - MansionBet Handicap


Gold Souk1:50 Newbury It's Not Rocket Science With MansionBet HandicapGET 7/2 HERE
18+ only. Ts and Cs apply. Gamble responsibly. Coral is operated by LC International Limited and licensed and regulated by the British Gambling Commission for persons gambling in Great Britain.

GOLD SOUK improved with each of his two-year-old runs, winning a maiden over a mile at Epsom before two solid runner-up finishes in good quality handicaps. Casamento’s progeny progress well when stepped up over a mile and Gold Souk is a half-brother to stablemate Dee Ex Bee, so there could be much more to come from this hardy sort in 2020.

Race 2 - Sandown - Uniboosts Handicap


Well Of Wisdom2:05 Sandown Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day HandicapGET 4/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

I’m hoping the undoubted class of WELL OF WISDOM will shine through in the opening ITV Race from Sandown. Charlie Appleby’s charge landed a Listed race at two, and won a lucrative handicap out in Meydan during the winter. That was over a mile, but I don’t think dropping back to seven furlongs will pose Well Of Wisdom any problems at all, and an inside draw over this trip is always helpful at Sandown. 

Race 3 - Newbury - Maggie Dickson Fillies' Stakes

Listed and Group Three races for fillies are notoriously tricky to predict, but I’m confident taking a chance on MISS CELESTIAL. Sir Mark Prescott’s filly has race-fitness on her side, having been beaten just over a length behind Liberty Beach at Haydock last week. Miss Celestial placed second in two Listed races over this trip in the autumn, and should be a big player stepping back up to seven furlongs.

Race 4 - Sandown - Scurry Stakes


Al Raya2:40 Sandown Unibet Scurry Stakes (Listed Race)GET 3/1 HERE
New customers only. 21+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.William Hill is operated by WHG (International) Limited, a company registered in Gibraltar.

AL RAYA rounded off a solid juvenile campaign with a victory in a Group Three out in France. Simon Crisford’s filly has experience running here at Sandown too, having finished fourth behind Liberty Beach in the Dragon Stakes last summer. Al Raya had a little trouble leaving the stalls that day, but if Rab Havlin’s mount can ping then gates, then she could prove difficult to peg back.

Race 5 - Newbury - Abingdon Fillies' Stakes

The absence of Domino Darling is disappointing, but it does present an opportunity to ORIENTAL MYSTIQUE, who ran on gamely to win at Kempton on her second two-year-old start. The form of that race has been boosted significantly, with the second, third and fifth-placed fillies all winning next time out. David Simcock boasts an excellent record here at Newbury and this daughter of Kingman is bred to improve during her three-year-old campaign.

Race 6 - Sandown - Unibet Handicap


Exec Chef3:15 Sandown Unibet "15-To-Go" Every ITV Royal Ascot Race HandicapGET 11/2 HERE

I really fancied EXEC CHEF to run well at Newmarket during the Guineas Festival, and there was plenty of market support on the day. Sadly, the running order barely changed through the entirety of the race and Jim Boyle’s charge couldn’t make any inroads at a crucial stage. I have a habit of backing handicappers one race too early. So, while I am weary of Solid Stone, I’ll place my faith in Jason Watson’s mount once again, as he remains very well handicapped.

Race 7 - Newbury - Diomed Stakes


King Of Comedy3:35 Newbury MansionBet's Beaten By A Head Diomed Stakes (Group 3)GET 9/4 HERE

The final race of the afternoon really should go the way of KING OF COMEDY. John Gosden’s colt brings the best form to the table, having finished second in last year’s St James’s Palace Stakes, before a cracking fourth in the Juddmonte International. John Gosden’s four-year-old sits four pounds clear of his nearest rival in the ratings and will be gaining weight from defending champion Zaaki. 9/4 looks a very good price.

Verdict
