With the flat season beginning to fizzle out, ITV Racing have another jam-packed weekend of racing in their schedule with action coming both on Saturday and Sunday.
The channel will be showing selected races from Newmarket, Ascot and Redcar on Saturday as well as four races from the Longchamp Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe meeting on Sunday.
Our team have taken a look through the Saturday schedule, in hope of picking out some value across the contests.
Here are three picks to consider for ITV Racing on Saturday.
PRINCESS NADIA – 1:45 NEWMARKET (12/1 – Various)
Under the guidance of John & Thady Gosden, Princess Nadia could be one to note in a 1m2f Fillies’ Handicap at Newmarket.
The three-year-old has only made five starts to date, but she has given two respectable efforts in handicaps in recent weeks.
She remains at the same mark and while it is unclear if she can cope with soft ground, the filly clearly has something about her with her price tag of 12/1 holding some appeal in this company.
JUST BEAUTIFUL – 2:55 NEWMARKET (20/1 – Various)
An exciting filly from Ivan Furtado’s yard, Just Beautiful could give a better account of herself in Group 1 company in the Sun Chariot Stakes.
The three-year-old has claimed success on five of her seven starts and she returned to winning ways at Doncaster last month.
The Pride Of Dubai filly clearly has some potential and she could well hint at some each-way value in this contest on ITV Racing.
ESCOBAR – 3:50 ASCOT (12/1 – Various)
A proven veteran in big-field handicaps, Escobar could be interesting in the Challenge Cup at Ascot.
David O’Meara’s recruit is only 3lbs above his last winning mark and he has been seriously consistent in big fields over the last few years.
The softer conditions shouldn’t phase him and he could well be in the mix, with his price of 12/1 holding some cracking value.
