Saturday’s ITV Racing Tips

FOX CHAIRMAN will be out to claim a first pattern race victory in the Steventon Stakes and get this 7/2 double off to the perfect start. It’s been a tough week for King Power Racing, losing stalwart Beat The Bank at Ascot seven days ago, but there’s every chance they could have another star on their hands in the shape of this promising Kingman colt.
After scoring in good style on his debut, Andrew Balding threw his charge into the Listed Dee Stakes at Chester. Fox Chairman settled nicely out the back, but a luckless passage meant his flying finish was only good enough for third. More traffic problems came at Ascot, where Fox Chairman had to wrestle his way off the rail before following Sangarius home in third. This is much weaker than either of his previous two assignments and I expect Fox Chairman to claim a comfortable victory in Saturday’s opener.
Once he does that, it will be up to VENTURA REBEL to continues his trainer’s fantastic recent record in the Super Sprint and bring this double home in fitting fashion.
Despite defeating a Wesley Ward hot-pot in the form of Lady Pauline on Trials Day, Ventura Rebel was barely mentioned in the build-up to the Norfolk Stakes. A’Ali and Frankie Dettori stole a march on the field, starting their winning run two furlongs from home. As the prominent horses wilted under pressure, Ventura Rebel sprung from the pack and his withering late run came up just a neck short.
Despite being rated some 15 pounds clear of his closest rival in the weights, the permutations of the race mean the favourite will carry just 9-00 on his back. Fahey said earlier in the week that he would be very disappointed if Ventura Rebel didn’t hand him a fourth Super Sprint victory in the last eight years on Saturday. We agree, Richard. We agree.

The handicapper clearly thinks Longhouse Sale is a very high-quality hurdler, handing him a mark of 141 after just two victories in novice contests. A third victory followed a Ffos Las, where Dan Skelton’s charge won as well as you’d expect any 1/10 shot to do. You can see why he’s the favourite, but carrying top-weight in such a competitive race on your handicap debut is a big ask for any horse and I fancy ST GALLEN will be on hand to spoil the Skelton’s party.
Like Dan Skelton, Olly Murphy has a fantastic record here at Market Rasen and he will have identified this as a target for St Gallen after his recruit’s winning stable debut here at the start of May. A second-straight victory followed at Kelso later that month, where Richard Johnston’s mount stretched clear after the final flight to secure a very comfortable win.
The form of St Gallen’s course-and-distance triumph has been boosted by victories for the second and third-placed horses. The third and fifth behind Murphy’s charge at Kelso have also gone out and won, further enforcing St Gallen’s chances in this year’s Summer Hurdle.

There are some classy horses sitting at the head of the market for this staying handicap, with recent handicap winners Carnwennan, Who Dares Wins and The Grand Visr boasting obvious claims. PROSCHEMA, however, is a horse who has caught my eye in defeat on a number of occasions this term and I think it’s well worth taking a chance on Tom Dascombe’s gelding this weekend.
Since an eighth-place finish in the St Leger last year, Dascombe’s stayer has performed well in a number of high-profile outings. A sixth-place finish behind Marmelo in the Group Three John Porter Stakes on his reappearance was followed by a decent eighth in a very high-quality renewal of the Jorvik Handicap – both run over an unsuitably short trips.
Proschema then finished like a train to carry 9-9 into the places in the Bernard Sunley Handicap at Newmarket, before claiming third again behind Who Dares Wins in the Northumberland Plate – despite a tricky wide draw on what was his first start on an artificial surface. Proschema looks very well-suited to two miles and Richard Kingscote’s mount has progressed with each of his starts so far this season. 7/1 looks a tasty price.

The Tin Man returns to Newbury to try and retain the title he won in 2016 and James Fanshawe’s popular charge is sure to garner some support. On seasonal performances, however, the seven-year-old could be vulnerable, especially giving five pounds to a dangerous contender in KHAADEM.
Charlie Hills’ charge showed plenty of promise as a juvenile and took home a hefty pot here at Newbury on his reappearance, defeating Oxted and future Jersey Stakes winner, Space Traveller rather snugly in the Listed Shalaa Carnarvon Stakes. An outing in the Commonwealth Cup then followed, but the occasion got the better of Khaadem, who laboured to an eight-place finish after looking very unsettled in the pre-limbs.
Returning to a more familiar, less high-profile setting like Newbury should make Hills’ precocious young sprinter much more comfortable. Jockey, Jim Crowley has been riding at the top of his game this week and he could secure his, and Hills’, third Hackwood Stakes triumph in the last five years.

If our treble was to fall flat, then it’s not a bad idea to have a back-up plan in a race as open as the Super Sprint and there’s a huge gap in the betting behind Ventura Rebel to be exploited. Horses drawn wide, who have gathered plenty of experience often run well in this competitive race and one who fits the bill at a big each-way price is SEPARATE.
Richard Hannon’s youngster followed a sixth-place finish in the Listed Marygate Filles’ Stakes with a maiden victory at Lingfield, powering to a four length triumph over a modest field. Following a difficult race over six furlongs at Royal Ascot, Separate ran nicely in a high-quality conditions race over the minimum distance last time out and Hannon – a two-time winner of the Super Sprint – will fancy his charge’s chances of catching a place, at least.
