ITV Racing Preview From York And Ascot

13:50 Ascot - The Princess Margaret Keeneland Stakes (Group 3)


The first race of the day from Ascot comes in the Group 3 Margaret Keeneland Stakes over six furlongs and in this interesting contest we have gone for Summer Romance.

This special juvenile out of Kingman is still unbeaten after winning both her starts to date, the first came at Yarmouth on soft ground in an ordinary event.

Her next run was the one that put her on the map landing the Listed Empress Fillies Stakes in good style on quicker ground showing how versatile she is.

One to beat.

14:05 York - The Skybet Britain's Most Popular Online Bookmaker Handicap Stakes

Medahim is our selection in the "Get Knotted" Handicap and in this race that is named after the favourite we have gone against him.

Medahim for trainer Ivan Furtado looks a very interesting character now getting back to a dangerous mark for his new yard and with Daniel Tudhope on board anything is possible.

The gelding will have to progress from his latest run but now back to the same handicap mark as the last time he won, which came at Glorious Goodwood he is one to watch.

14:25 Ascot - The Porsche Handicap Stakes

The Class 2 Porshce Handicap looks a very competitive betting market with many of the runners being of a similar level but we have sided with Wings Of Time.

This Godolphin owned three year old looks like a useful gelding for Charlie Appleby really stepping up this season and impressing in some strong events.

He started his season off at Wolverhampton with an easy win in a Class 5, he backed that up with a good second at Newmarket but last time he looked the real deal scoring on the July Course and this race looks very much in his favour.

14:40 York - The Sky Bet Dash Handicap Stakes

One of the most unpredictable races of the day in Britain is the Sky Bet Dash Handicap over six furlongs, but we have gone with the Kevin Ryan trained Savalas.

He bounced back to form last time out when down in trip to five furlongs finishing a good second in a Class 2 at Newmarket and stepping back up six furlongs makes him a player.

He will have to overcome his poor runs in big field but he is down to a nice mark that he should be handy on.

15:00 Ascot - The Moet & Chandon International Stakes (Heritage Handicap)

The International Stakes sees a huge field go to post and with that comes big prices and we have gone for Land Of Legend in the seven furlong event.

This Saeed bin Suroor trained three year old is one of the most unexposed horses in the field only racing four times in his career but recently has looked dangerous.

Two starts ago he got off the mark for the first time on the all weather at Kempton and he backed that up with another at Newmarket and if coming on for that run looks to have a chance in this one.

15:15 York - The Sky Bet York Stakes (Group 2)

The big race of the day on the Knavesmire is the Group 2 York Stakes and Regal Reality for trainer Sir Michael Stoute is hard to oppose after his last run.

The Cheveley Park Stud owned four year old gave a career best when third behind Enable in the Group 1 Coral Eclipse last time out.

If he can come on for that form going over slightly further he will be tough to beat and before that third he took a nice Group 3 at Sandown.

15:40 Ascot - The King George Vi And Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes (Group 1) (British Champions Series)

The big race of the day and arguably the biggest flat race of the year so far is the Group 1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes and there is only one horse we could go with.

The super-mare Enable has been one of the best middle distance horses for the past three years, now having won 10 straight races in a row.

After her heroics in the Arc and Breeders Cup Turf last year, she came back for what looks her last season in great style winning the Group 1 Coral Eclipse at Sandown.

She was said to only be "85-90%" fit that day so if she is fully tuned up Saturday she could be electrifying and should not be beat.

When The Fun Stops. Stop.
