Tim Lawson’s ITV Horse Racing Tips, Sat 4th August 2018

Two wins last week with Poet’s World and Get Knotted doing the business for us. We were very disappointing with the Gigaset result where Burnt Sugar (tipped up two weeks previously) went on to win comfortably at 25/1! I looked at this horse hard before ruling it out from our shortlist last week and to be honest I was surprised by its amazing win and was a masterful training feat by the trainer.

Here is the ITV racing schedule for today.

Sat 4 – Glorious Goodwood (Day 5) – ITV
13:50 The Qatar Stewards’ Sprint Handicap Stakes
14:25 The Qatar Summer Handicap Stakes

Now back to our professional horse racing tips.

GOODWOOD

13:50 The Qatar Stewards’ Sprint Handicap Stakes

Maakaasib looks like it has the winnings of a class two handicap and can improve a back on Good to Firm going.

Maakaasib 10/1

14:25 The Qatar Summer Handicap Stakes

Platitude looks well weighted to win this and should go close. I also like the look of Time To Study but looks like Mark Johnsons second string and may be just too high in the weights

Platitude 7/1

15:00 The Qatar Gordon Stakes (Group 3)

Not the best renewal to look forward to with just four contenders, but we think Cross Counter is still good value for this race.

Cross Counter 5/2

15:40 The Stewards’ Cup Handicap Stakes (Heritage Handicap)

Here are the two that stand out as great each way bets:

Gifted Master  14/1
Swift Approval 40/1

NEWMARKET

14:05 The Skybet Britain’s Most Popular Online Bookmaker Handicap Stakes (86-105) 7f

Another tough race to break down. We will side with Melodic Motion who at least has a price that represents fair value.

Melodic Motion 5/1

14:40 The Sky Bet Dash Handicap Stakes (0-105) 6f

Charlie Appleby’s Strings Of Life looks like the one to side with here. Horse posted best speed figures last time out and if can replicate that today, has a great chancing of landing this prize.

Strings Of Life 15/2
