ITV Racing Tips: Six of the most tipped up horses on 1000 Guineas day at Newmarket
It was a tough day for punters following the action on ITV on Saturday with no winning favourites, although the well fancied second favourite of the 2000 Guineas, 5/1 Coroebus secured a 1-2 for Charlie Appleby in the big race.
The 1000 Guineas takes centre stage on Sunday from Newmarket races and there's also action from Hamilton and Salisbury on ITV.
We've taken a look at each race to pick out the most fancied from the UK and Ireland's best tipsters.
First up for punters on Sunday afternoon at Newmarket is the Betfair Daily Rewards Handicap (1.50pm) where Andrew Balding's Valley Forge heads the betting at 3/1. Last year's Melrose winner is open to further improvement as a four year old and now gelded and has attracted the attention of five tipsters with Rob Wright of the Times making his nap at Newmarket.
However, at bigger prices we're leaning towards Golden Flame trained by Mark Johnston who has been napped up twice for the race by The North correspondent of the Racing Post and the Sunday Mail (Rockavon). The four year old was allowed to dictate at Haydock last tume but only went up 4lbs for that valuable win and could still be ahead of the handicapper.
Race two on ITV also comes from Newmarket is the Listed Pretty Polly Stakes at 2.25pm.
The betting is headed here by the John and Thady Gosden trained Crenelle who is the mount of Frankie Dettori and is the overwhelming leading fancy of the tipsters listed on Horseracing.net.
14 tipsters have put up the filly who was succussful in a one mile maiden at the Craven Meeting here last month and should be open to improvement. Four of the tipsters also make her their nap of the day at Newmarket including Mercury of the Daily Post.
Only four runners go to post in the 2.35pm at Hamilton which is race three on the ITV schedule and we have an odds on favourite in the shape of Kevin Ryan's Gis A Sub.
The Gimcrack second was the pick of his useful two-year-old efforts and should be suited to a stiff five furlongs here. However, the most tipped horse in the race on the site is the Roger Varian trained Mitbaahy who has attracted the attention of seven tipsters. Newsboy of the Mirror, Robin Goodfellow of the Mail and Rob Wright of the Times have all sided with the colt who was twice placed in Listed races last year and had a solid reappearance at Nottingham finishing second on his seasonal reappearance last month. At 2/1 he might prove a little bit of value.
Race four comes from Salisbury with another small field of four for this handicap (2.40pm).
The betting suggests this is a two horse race between Oman and Spirit Mixer who are both around the 6/4 mark, but it's the latter who gets the nod from our collection of tipsters attracting 11 selections including three naps.
Robin Goodfellow of the Daily Mail makes the four year old his nap of the day at the Wiltshire track who is a course and distance winner and shaped quite well here over a a mile and a half just 11 days ago.
We're back at Newmarket for the final two races on ITV on Sunday with the Group 2 Dahlia Stakes for fillies and mares at 3pm.
Seven go to post headed by Sir Michael Stoute's Ville De Grace at 2/1, but it's French-Raider Ebaiyra who has attracted the most tips including three naps. A dual Group 2 winner is a big player provided she copes with the drop in trip and Sirius of The Sun On Sunday is one who makes her their nap of the day at the course.
At bigger prices (5/1), Dreamloper for Ed Walker has four tips in the race and was a creditable third in the Group 1 Sun Chariot here on her last appearance.
Last up is of course the 1000 Guineas at 3.40, the second Classic of the flat racing season.
In what looks like being a competitive renewal, the betting is headed by the Aiden O'Brien trained Tenebrism, but its stablemate Tuesday who gets the nod for us at 11/2 attracting five naps.
Frankie Dettori takes the ride and she should build on her Naas win last time out. Sister to Minding who win this race back in 2016, she has bags of potential and the likes of the Ipswich Star, Irish Herald, Liverpool Echo, Racing Ahead and the Racing Post spotlight have napped her in the big race.
