The first race on the ITV broadcast this Saturday is the Class 3 Handicap and Sir Mark Prescott fields Tell Me All who looks very interesting.

The three year old gelding looks to be a good ground specialist having scored twice in his five races on that surface,

He also finished a bold second three starts ago on the all weather at Lingfield and now being stepped up in trip should give a good account of himself.

We see our first Listed event on ITV with the Newbury Maggie Dickson Fillies' Stakes over seven furlongs and Miss Celestial could land a Sir Mark Prescott Double.

The four year old filly has been fairly consistent in Listed company during her career with four places in four runs last year.

She made her seasonal debut at Haydock over six furlongs on Sunday and with that run under her belt and getting back to quicker ground she looks to have a huge chance in this one.

The only racing we have a selection for at Sandown on ITV is the Listed Scurry Stakes over five furlongs and Sunday Sovereign for new trainer Roger Varian can go well.

The three year old colt was a dual winner in Ireland last season over five and six furlongs under Paddy Twomey and was sent to Royal Ascot in the Group Two Norfolk Stakes as favourite but ultimately fell short.

Now under Varian, who has made a decent start to the season, he can have a solid three year old career and starting in this Listed contest should see him go close.

It is a day full of Listed action on Saturday at Newbury and in the Abingdon Fillies' Stakes over 1 mile 2 furlongs we are going with the John Gosden trained Franconia.

The Khalid Abdullah owned three year old is a daughter of Frankel that raced once last season, finishing second at Chelmsford in a Class 4.

She looks to be a likely improver for a top yard, who has won this race three times since 2012.

One of the biggest races on Saturday in Britain is the Group Three Diomed Stakes at Newbury and a horse making his seasonal debut is the John Gosden trained King Of Comedy.

The four year old looks a class above the rest in the field having showed how good he could be last season when second in the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot and also second behind Benbatl in the Group Two Joel Stakes.

Although only winning the one decent race last season in the Listed Heron Stakes at Sandown, he still holds plenty potential as a two year old and Gosden's horses seem to be flying at the moment.
