1:45 Haydock

Haydock is the home of the opener for the ITV coverage and it’s a Group 3 contest over the 1m distance. My Oberon and Khaloosy came second and third behind Tilsit at Goodwood last time out and I’d argue the thurs Khaloosy shaped better out the pair after hitting 1/3 in running before fading.

I’m happy to take the pair on with TOP RANK 11/2 here. Top Rank was unbeaten heading into his last start and he was far from disgraced on that occasion finishing third behind Montatham beaten a length. I think there is more improvement in him and he’s the value selection here.

 

2:00 Kempton 

We head to Kempton for our next race and it is an AW Group 3 contest over 6f. Mystery Smiles heads the market coming off the back of a solid third last time out before the exciting Minzaal at York.

I prefer the chances of MIGHTY GURKHA 11/2 here. Back on the AW which was the scene of his almighty impressive debut performance which got everyone excited. He has ran some solid races since which put him in the mix but I think the return to the AW could well eek out more improvement for him to take this Group 3 contest.

 

2:15 Haydock

Back to Haydock we go for the 1m6f handicap contest and I’m sure it will be a good test on the soft ground around Haydock.

I like the favourite here FAVORITE MOON 2/1 who I expect to bounce back after a below par run last time out. Back in a small field he’ll be able to dictate it here. Favorite Moon won well in a similar handicap here at Haydock 2 starts ago where he beat St Leger contender Subjectivist. A return to that form here will make him tough to beat.

 

2:35 Kempton

Enjoy watching ENABLE win this one.

 

2:50 Haydock

The 2:50 race from Haydock is one of the more trickier races on the day and it is a very wide open handicap over 1m6f known as the Old Borough Cup.

It is 5/1 the field here and it’s certainly one for an e/w punt. I am happy to chance BRANDON CASTLE 11/1 EW here at a decent price. Brandon Castle, better known for his hurdle efforts likes to bowl along out in front and can prove very difficult to pass. I think their is scope off this current flat mark and he carries a very light weight of 8’8 here. Hollie Doyle takes the ride and she’s riding on the crest of a wave at the moment. I’m hoping Brandon Castle will get his own way in front here and at the prices he is a great e/w bet here.

3:05 Ascot

For the first time on our ITV Pick 7 tips today we head to Ascot for the Lavezza Stakes. A class 2 handicap over just shy of 1m4f. My Frankel heads the market after an impressive win at Kempton last time out but he carries top weight here.

I like KIPPS 11/2 NB here who has been a little bit of a nearly horse this season but he has run some really good races in top handicap company. He was very unlucky not to win here at Royal Ascot when finishing second but trainer Hughie Morrison can’t do a lot wrong as of late operating at a 27% strike rate from his last  26 runners. Good bet.

 

3:25 Haydock

The feature on the day is the exciting Betfair Sprint Cup, a Group 1 contest over 6f. Hello Youmzain will prove popular having won this contest last year and the ground has come right for the Kevin Ryan sprinter. Golden Horde will bid to return to the form that won him the Commonwealth Cup whilst Art Power will bid to put his poor run last time out behind him stepping back up to 6f.

The winner for me here though is DREAM OF DREAMS 10/3. He was unlucky not to win the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot when flying home to finish second. He put that right when a stunning performance last time out when winning a Group 2 contest at Newbury by a country mile. Oisin Murphy rode that day and he keeps the ride. He deserves this Group 1 victory and the ground is no problem for this strong stayer over 6f.

 

3:40 Ascot

Back to Ascot again for the 3:40 race and we have another handicap contest, this time over 6f. May Sonic heads the market for Charlie Hills after winning well last time out. The horses in behind haven’t done much for the form and I’m happy to look elsewhere.

The one for me here is FORTAMOUR 10/1 NAP. Ben Haslam trains the horse and he’s in rude form as of late. He is a trainer going places and I think he has a great chance here. Fortamour is  very consistent and always seems to finish in the top 4. He was staying on well last time out in first time cheekpieces finishing third behind Documenting. He runs off a feather weight of 8’5 here and on ground that will suit him and his stamina strengths he is my bet of the day.

 

4:15 Ascot

My last selection comes in the 4:15 contest at Ascot and it is 7f handicap contest. Blue Mist heads the market after winning well last time out and has a great chance of following up. Raising Sand will prove popular if the rain falls as he needs soft ground to be seen at his best.

However I like WISE COUNSEL 12/1 EW here. Clive Cox trains this one and he won this race last year so knows what it takes. Wise Counsel caught the eye last time out finishing third doing all his best work late on. He was slowly away that day after a break and I’m hopeful that will have blown the cobwebs away ahead of a bold bid on this contest as a good e/w price.
