Saturday ITV Racing Tips: Best bets for Beverley, Goodwood and Newmarket

The ITV cameras will be present at three meetings on Saturday, August 26 and we've a tip for each of the 8 live races.

A bumper day of action this Saturday for the cameras to feast upon, including two listed races. 

First a quick list of our selections, plus the reasons behind our highlighted picks further down the page. You can check out the race cards with one click - Planet Sport's Racing Live Centre.

13:30 Beverley - It Just Takes Time

13:50 Goodwood - Bright Diamond

14:05 Beverley - Box To Box

14:25 Goodwood - Tacarib Bay

14:40 Beverley - Korker

15:00 Goodwood - Hoo Ya Mal

15:15 Newmarket - Vadream

15:35 Goodwood - Mutasaabeq

15:35 Goodwood - Mutasaabeq

Mutasaabeq can finally oblige for favourite-backers in the William Hill Celebration Mile Stakes at Goodwood.

A winner on his return at Thirsk back in April, he has been the beaten market leader in each of three subsequent starts but has had to settle for minor honours on each occasion.

Beaten a neck in second by Lights On in a Sandown Group Two, he then found Megallan a length and a quarter too good in a Group Three at Epsom before another narrow defeat at the hands of Chindit in the Summer Mile at Ascot.

He had excuses at both Sandown, where he met trouble in running, and Epsom, where he patently did not enjoy the track judged on the way he hung, but he had his chance at Ascot and just fell short.

All those efforts prove Mutasaabeq is Group Two calibre and he may not get many better chances at this level.

13:50 Goodwood - Bright Diamond

Bright Diamond made quite a splash when hacking up by nine lengths on her racecourse bow at the start of the month and must be one for the shortlist in the William Hill Prestige Fillies' Stakes.

It may not pay to get too carried away with that form, but the Karl Burke-trained Bright Diamond could not have impressed more, accelerating away again at the finish despite being the first under pressure, and she might be able to make the Group Three leap here.

15:00 Goodwood - Hoo Ya Mal

The form of Hoo Ya Mal is much easier to assess, with the Derby second tuning up for his planned St Leger run in the William Hill March Stakes.

His Gordon Stakes form is obviously more than decent, with the second Deauville Legend triumphing in style at York last week, and George Boughey has found a good opportunity for a Doncaster prep, though he will obviously be not much of a price.
