Tips For Saturday's ITV Races From Sandown, York & Chester

4 min

It’s the calm before the Royal Ascot Storm, but Tom Stanley and Adele Mulrennan are bullish on their selections this weekend.

Eight races on ITV this Saturday, and Adele Mulrennan and I take you through them all. A low-key weekend before Royal Ascot, but some decent betting heats nonetheless.

5f Handicap (13:40 Chester)

No bet for me here but Adele thinks Virginia Plane is overpriced at 6.5 at the time of recording and is very complimentary about rider James Sullivan.

  • Tom – no bet
  • Adele – Virginia Plane

Queen Mother’s Cup (14:00 York)

A smaller field than you’d expect for this race. Adele thinks two at big prices are worth supporting whilst I’m a little more team obvious with Arctic Fox

  • Tom – Arctic Fox
  • Adele – Sameem / Flymetotthestars

Scurry Stakes (14:15 Sandown)

Both keen on the favourite here who bumped into a good horse last time. I’ll also chance Mishal Star win and place.

  • Tom – Atalis Bay / Mishal Star
  • Adele – Atalis Bay

7f Handicap (14:35 York)

Adele’s best bet lines up here at 6.0 at the time of recording. I’m with Golden Apollo who has the talented Ella McCain on board.

  • Tom – Golden Apollo
  • Adele – Gifted Ruler BEST BET

1m Handicap (14:50 Sandown)

A trappy little contest but I do think the Crisford horse is very well treated. Adele thinks Don’t Tell Claire should be backed in the place market.

  • Tom – Latest Generation
  • Adele – Don’t Tell Claire place

Grand Cup (15:05 York)

Was going to leave this alone but the selection is a good horse and I thought he had a better chance than his odds suggest. Small stakes and so too for Adele with Ranch Hand.

  • Tom – Roberto Escobarr
  • Adele – Ranch Hand

1m 4f Handicap (15:20 Chester)

A tricky race but both of us going for a Mark Johnston horse. I’m with the outsider of the field whilst Adele fancies his second string. Both win and place.

  • Tom – Glen Again
  • Adele – Love Is Golden

Sprint Handicap (15:40 York)

Good betting race and a couple going up here at prices. My best bet lines up having finished second in a race last time which looks like strong form.

  • Tom – Jadwal BEST BET / Bickerstaffe
  • Adele – Showalong / Skyrunner
