National Hunt action takes place in front of the ITV cameras on Friday.
National Hunt action takes place in front of the ITV cameras on Friday.

There's a bit of everything on ITV Racing on Friday with some exciting young talents scorching the turf at Newmarket, while at Chepstow there's some competitive action over the sticks, and add in a sprinkle of Flat action at York then there's set to be a real treat for racing fans. Our in-house tipster Steve Chambers is relishing the chance to get stuck into the terrestrial racing and has picked out his four best bets on the day...

13:35 Chepstow - Professor Caroline Tisdall Supports Heroic Jumpers Veterans' Handicap Chase

A runaway 10-length winner of the 2020 Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury off a mark of 136, Cloth Cap has struggled to reach those dizzy heights in recent times and was last seen pulling up in the Grand National at Aintree in April. Making his return to the track at Chepstow on Friday, the Jonjo O'Neill-trained raider is the 11/4 favourite at the time of writing, but his form on his seasonal reappearances isn't something to shout about, so off a mark of 144 he's worth taking on.

The one to strike gold in this event is Nick Gifford's THE MIGHTY DON, who is a 100/30 second favourite to land this prize and off a mark of 132 looks a lively contender for success. A winner at Chepstow on his first run of the season two years ago, The Mighty Don was deemed class enough to compete in the National Hunt Chase at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, where he came sixth. Not seen since pulling up at Cheltenham on New Year's Day off 136, Gifford's charge will return on Friday and if he can produce his best form then he can notch up a second win over fences.

14:40 York - William Hill Autumn Mile Handicap

A hugely competitive field will line up for the 14:40 at York and several will line up with huge chances of landing the 7f 192y prize. A winner at Haydock Park last time out, Helm Rock is currently heading the betting, while Master Zoffany and Arthurs Realm are also prominent figures in the betting, but the one towards the head of the betting that catches the eye is NORTHERN EXPRESS, who can record the win here.

A course winner back in June, the Michael Dods-trained four-year-old lines up off a 6lbs higher mark in this event, and she showed when finishing a creditable seventh in a competitive event at the track in August that he is still performing to a high level. Dropped 1lb for that outing, Dods has freshened Northern Express up for this contest, and the son of Zoffany could return to winning ways here and taste more glory on the Knavesmire.

15:50 York - William Hill Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap

We have another devilishly difficult punting assignment for punters at York at 15:50, but the William Haggas-trained POST IMPRESSIONIST could prove attractively handicapped off a mark of 87, and he can land the spoils here at an eye-catching 8/1. He was coming with a big run to win the race at Haydock Park last time out, but suffered huge traffic problems in the closing stages and had to settle for third place.

That run came off a mark of 86, so he's only been upped 1lb following that run and with Adam Farragher taking off 5lbs then he lines up here with a huge chance. He should get no such traffic problems in this event with them like to fan out at the business end of the contest, and if Farragher can get him wound up from a long way out then he could bound home to land a well deserved win.

16:10 Newmarket - bet365 Old Rowley Cup Handicap

There could be a quick cross-the-card double for the Haggas team as LA YAKEL can deliver in the hugely competitive Old Rowley Cup at Newmarket at 16:10, which is the final race on an action-packed day of racing in front of the ITV Racing cameras. The son of Time Test has progressed immeasurably as the season has progressed and has banged in a brace of impressive wins on the bounce and can notch the hat-trick at Flat HQ on Friday.

A comfortable half-a-length winner of an Ascot event last time out off a mark of 87, the Haggas raider lines up off 92 here, so will face a sterner test, but he shaped like he could be capable of possibly reaching a three-figure mark by the end of the season, so a figure of 92 is still within his capabilities. Showing all his best work at the finish, if Tom Marquand can hold a prominent position through the early stages then he can storm home to claim victory in this valuable event.
