ITV Racing tips: one key runner from each of the six races on ITV4 on Thursday
Satchell Moran Solicitors Business Interruption Claims Handicap, 5f
The draw is likely to be key for this sprint handicap as you have to go back to 2011 to find the last winner drawn higher than stall 4. Recent winners Jabbarockie and Mondammej are well berthed, as is Copper Knight.
SPOTLIGHT TIP:Copper Knight
Has form figures of 112 at this festival; interesting off a very handy mark back here
tote+ Biggest Dividends At tote.co.uk Dee Stakes (Listed), 1m2½f
Seven horses take their chance in a race that was last landed by a subsequent Derby winner in 2003 by Kris Kin. Sandown Classic trial third Yibir heads the betting, while Aidan O'Brien bids for a seventh success in the last decade with the twice Group 2-placed Ontario.
SPOTLIGHT TIP:Foxes Tales
Kept on very strongly to snatch maiden at Newbury (1m, good) 18 days ago; 1m2f+ will suit
Mental Health Awareness Handicap Hurdle, 2m4f
A rare terrestrial appearance for the West Midlands track and a competitive handicap hurdle is on show. Dancingwith Storms seeks to go one better after two recent runner-up efforts, as does Glance From Clover after a career best at Hereford last time.
SPOTLIGHT TIP:Glance From Clover
Good second at Hereford last time; still unexposed in handicaps; respected
Deepbridge Estate Planning Service Handicap, 7½f
Several progressive types clash in this three-year-old handicap, including recent Catterick novice winner Aquaman. Aleas, successful on two of his three starts, and Buxted Too, who has finished first and second in two starts this year, are others to note.
SPOTLIGHT TIP:Melody Of Life
Not much went right on handicap/turf debut and he could be a different proposition today
tote+ Pays You More At tote.co.uk Ormonde Stakes (Group 3), 1m5½f
A high quality renewal in which dual top-level winner Japan takes on Long Distance Cup scorer Trueshan, with the last-named carrying a 5lb penalty for that Group 2 victory. 2019 winner Morando bids for a repeat success and has form figures of 41317 on his first start of the year.
High class on his day; takes a big drop back in grade; peak form sets a tall standard
Destination 2 Handicap, 1m2½f
A slight ease in the ground is in the favour of market leader First Impression, who has been plying his trade over jumps since October. Spirit Dancer should strip fitter for his Newbury return and is open to improvement, while Snow Ocean is 2-2 at this track but has a wide draw in stall 13 to overcome.
On a competitive mark and has run big races on both visits to Chester
