Saturday's Horse Racing Tips: Ascot, York July 23rd
Today’s Racing Tips – July 23rd
There is cracking flat racing on ITV on Saturday, with the cameras covering the very best of the action from Ascot and York. Very quick ground is expected at both tracks after a red hot week of weather, and there has been watering to try and keep the jar out of the ground at both tracks.
The highlight of the whole afternoon comes at the Berkshire venue, with the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes looking set to be a vintage Group 1 (with Westover and Emily Upjohn providing a fascinating clash between the best of the colts and fillies).
At York there are some typically tough handicaps for punters to solve, with the Sky Bet Dash at 2.40pm sure to attract all the usual speedballs over one of the fastest sprint trips in the country.

Today’s Daily Nap
Ascot 2:25 (UK time)
George Boughey’s filly has been running with credit in useful company all summer, and she shaped really well under more patient tactics at Chester last time out. William Buick replaces Nicola Currie at Ascot on Saturday, and a frontrunning ride can see her land this valuable Group 3 prize.
Today’s Value Angle
Ascot 3:00 (UK time)
James Fanshawe’s progressive handicapper let down backers when sent off 4/1f for the Wokingham at the Royal meeting, but he had excuses there, racing up the centre while the action developed on the near side, and still shaped as though in top form. This return to seven furlongs should suit ideally, and he has a terrific record on the straight course at Ascot overall (six runs, one win and placed on four other occasions in warm company).
Odds are best odds available as at 9am July 22nd 2022. Odds may now differ.
Saturday ITV Racing Tips – July 23rd
|1:50||Ascot||Breege||John Quinn’s filly looked smart when making a winning debut readily at Wetherby in May, and may have been undone by the stiff track when turned over at 4/9f at Pontefract last time out. This Group 3 represents a jump up in class, but she relishes fast ground and can quicken away from these late Jason Hart.|
|2:05||York||Indian Sounds||Daryl Jacob achieved the feat of riding a winner at every jumps track this week with a success at Cartmel, and he seems sure to be thereabouts on Paul Midgeley’s battle hardened sprinter. He has slipped down the weights this summer without making much impression from off the pace, but is now well handicapped as a result and they are bound to go off very hard up front here which might set things up for a late charge.|
|2:25||Ascot||Oscula||George Boughey’s filly has been running with credit in useful company all summer, and she shaped really well under more patient tactics at Chester last time out. William Buick replaces Nicola Currie at Ascot on Saturday, and a frontrunning ride can see her land this valuable Group 3 prize.|
|2:40||York||Aberama Gold||Keith Dalgleish’s sprinter has been running himself into form this summer, catching the eye in defeat at Ayr on his last two starts. He is a previous course and distance winner here, and seems sure to give his running again under Billy Garrity.|
|3:00||Ascot||Fresh||James Fanshawe’s progressive handicapper let down backers when sent off 4/1f for the Wokingham at the Royal meeting, but he had excuses there, racing up the centre while the action developed on the near side, and still shaped as though in top form. This return to seven furlongs should suit ideally, and he has a terrific record on the straight course at Ascot overall (six runs, one win and placed on four other occasions in warm company).|
|3:15||York||Sir Busker||William Knight’s reliable performer would not normally be the type you would expect to win a Group 2 aged 7, but he has been running well all summer at the top level and this does represent a marked drop in class compared with Royal Ascot last time out. He has won 5 of his 36 career starts, and looked rather unlucky in this contest in 2021 when finishing a close fourth behind Space Blues.|
|3:35||Ascot||Westover||Ralph Beckett’s top class performer gained compensation for a troubled run in the Epsom Derby when taking the Irish equivalent in style last time out, and he remains with plenty of potential to keep on progressing after just six career starts. A positive ride will be needed round here on fast ground (very much a grinding galloper rather than an explosive quickener), but Colin Keane is aware of his strengths and can put these to the sword turning for home.|
