ITV Racing tips: one key runner from each of the nine races on ITV4 on Saturday

1 of 1

1.55 Ascot
tote+ Exclusively At British EBF Fillies' Handicap, 1m

Lights On has been a model of consistency on her five starts and looks the type to progress in the care of Sir Michael Stoute. Dreamloper and Conservatoire have good form to their names, as does Hold Fast, who is looking for a fourth win in five starts.


C&D winner, unlucky on reappearance; probably ahead of her mark and looks the one to beat

2.15 Lingfield
Novibet Oaks Trial Fillies' Stakes, 1m3½f, Listed

Technique ran a great race in the Blue Riband at Epsom last time and bids to boost her Oaks credentials for Martyn Meade. She faces a stiff task here though, with previous winners Nash Nasha, Loving Dream and Ocean Road allboastingunexposed profiles. Divinely goes for Aidan O'Brien.


Looked a good prospect as two-year-old when second at Nottingham (1m, soft) and winning here (1m)

2.30 Ascot
tote+ Pays More At Buckhounds Stakes,1m4f, Listed

Deja was unlucky at Royal Ascot lastseasonand returns to the same course and distance as he attempts to set up another tilt at the royal meeting. Without A Flight looks a progressive stayer for the Crisfords and Sheikh Mohammed Obaid, as does Lost Eden, who runs in the same silks.


Can win Group races judged on soft-ground form; return behind three of these was on good

2.50 Lingfield
Novibet Derby Trial Stakes,1m3½f, Listed

Adayar was the one to take out of Sandown's Classic Trial and now looks to confirm himself a legitimateCazoo Derby candidate. Anthony Van Dyck won this in 2019 before going on to Classic glory at Epsom for Aidan O'Brien and this the trainer saddles Kyprios and Carlisle Bay.


Close second in the Sandown Classic Trial, faring best of those held up; commands respect

3.10 Haydock
Pertemps Network Swinton Handicap Hurdle,1m7½f, Grade 3

Copperless was going as well as anything when falling at Aintree last time and will surely play a big hand here if staying on his feet. Camprond finished second in the same Aintree race, while Shanroe attempts to bag another big British prize for Ireland. Rowland Ward, the winner at Aintree, will need more to win again here.

SPOTLIGHT TIP:Thistimenextyear

Unlucky in this race two years ago and some encouragement last month after long absence

3.25 Lingfield
Novibet Chartwell Fillies' Stakes,7f, Group 3

Isabella Giles was a classy two-year-old and ran well for a long way in the Fred Darling before getting tired late on. Double Or Bubble is looking for a four-timer for Chris Wall, while Bounce The Blues retains potential after her reappearance at Doncaster.

SPOTLIGHT TIP:Double Or Bubble

Improving filly who was impressive at Newmarket on seasonal debut; commands major respect

3.40 Ascot
tote+ Victoria Cup, 7f

Roger Varian won the last running of this race in 2019 with Cape Byron and appears to have a decent chance with Jumaira Bay, but the market suggests Acquitted could be the one to beat for Hugo Palmer and in-form jockey Tom Marquand, who won the Group 3 Chester Vase on Wednesday.


Strong form in 7f-1m h'caps here in 2019; often highly tried since; this is more suitable

4.00 Lingfield
Download The Novibet App Handicap, 7½f

A small but select field line up in this handicap and the market is headed by the James Fanshawe-trained Turn On The Charm, a two-time winner last season who began this campaign by finishing fourth at Nottingham over a longer trip. Eton College is second in the market for Mark Johnston, closely followed by Asad.


Ran creditably at Nottingham on reappearance and that form is working out well; respected

4.15 Ascot
tote+ Exclusively, 1m4f

Group One Power bids to follow up his success in the historic Great Metropolitan at Epsom for trainer Andrew Balding, but this is a competitive contest and his main dangers could be Labeebb and Louganini, a narrow runner-up in last year's Old Rowley Cup at Newmarket under Hollie Doyle.


Doing the job in tidy style from off the pace and weights rise may well underestimate him
