ITV Racing Tips: Enable & Highland Reel go head-to-head

| 29.07.2017

We have another cracking day of live racing on ITV this Saturday with the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth stakes the feature race at Ascot.

Enable and Highland Reel is the big clash in that one, while we’ve also got the Juddmonte Stakes to look forward to.

As ever, we’ll try and bag some winners for you along the way with our top tips for each televised race.

NAP – Enable – 15:25, Ascot

We guess you could say this is an obvious pick, but it’s hard to ignore frankly. At 11/10, Enable looks a tad short, but we’re going all-in anyway.

The three-year-old is simply a magnificent horse and with the weather forecast likely to produce soft ground, it’s even more of a reason to back the dual Oaks winner.

NB – Nyaleti – 13:50, Ascot

So we’ve gone from an 11/10 shot in our NAP to a 13/8 pick for our NB – pushing the boat out, we know. Still, though, we really like Nyaleti.

Mark Johnston’s filly has been in good form all season and was just pipped at the line by Clemmie in the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes at Newmarket two weeks ago.

We reckon she’ll go one better this time round.

Lively Longshot – Flaming Spear – 15:00, Ascot

This pick is based on the double logic that the-once Classic contender looks like he’s finally meeting his potential, and the fact that Kevin Ryan’s yard is firing at the moment.

His last couple of wins have come on all-weather surfaces, and Saturday’s forecast looks like it could be soft ground, but at juicy odds of 10/1, let’s just say it’s an educated gamble.

ITV Racing Tips:

13:50 Ascot – Nyaleti

14:05 York – Salateen

14:25 Ascot – Pealer

14:40 York – Mobsta

15:00 Ascot – Flaming Spear

15:15 York – Autocratic

15:25 Ascot – Enable
