It's the start of the Guineas Festival on Friday, May 2 and the racing world is certainly feeling more spring like as the Planet Sport tipsters look for some winners from the seven ITV races on offer.

We have to wait until the weekend for the first Classics of the Flat season, but there's plenty of quality racing to get stuck into on the opening day at Newmarket.

ITV will be showing four from racing's HQ, including the Group 2 Jockey Club Stakes (1610), and there's a bonus three races from Goodwood too.

Let's start off with a quick run through of our ITV tips, with the reasons why we've picked them further down the page.

Friday's quick tips:

14:25 (Newmarket) Endless Victory

14:40 (Goodwood) Lady Lightning

15:00 (Newmarket) Noble Dynasty

15:15 (Goodwood) Bishop's Crown

15:35 (Newmarket) Boiling Point

15:50 (Goodwood) Clarendon House

16:10 (Newmarket) Time Lock


14:25 (Newmarket) Endless Victory

Endless Victory hopes to maintain his unbeaten status when lining up for the William Hill Newmarket Stakes.

The Charlie Appleby-trained colt justified favouritism when beating Salamanca by a short head over course and distance last month and will be buoyed by his return to the Rowley Mile course.

Connections have the Dante and Derby among their options this summer for the three-year-old, who will aim to make it three wins in three starts during his short career to date.


14:40 (Goodwood) Lady Lightning

Lady Lightning has the experience to secure her second successive triumph in the British Stallion Studs EBF Restricted Novice Stakes.

The Ed Dunlop-trained two-year-old won on debut at Wolverhampton last month and was two lengths clear of third-placed Ellomate, who is one of her rivals in this race.

The filly will carry top weight and should have enough to progress further after that experience, although Carderock, son of Group One-winning US Navy Flag, could be a threat on his debut for Richard Hannon.


15:00 (Newmarket) Noble Dynasty

Noble Dynasty looks the most likely in the William Hill Epic Boost Handicap.

A previous winner over course and distance he didn't run badly when fifth among G3 company at Meydan last time and may prove too classy for his rivals back in a handicap with ground conditions to suit.

Dark Thirty scored over six furlongs here last month and commands respect off this revised mark. Stepping back up to seven furlongs will pose no problem.

Others to note include English Oak who went down by a neck tackling six furlongs in a competitive Ascot handicap during October and Lincoln handicap seventh Thunder Ball.


15:15 (Goodwood) Bishop's Crown

Bishop's Crown maintains a consistent profile and placed at this meeting last year. The gelding bids for a hat-trick following victories at Doncaster and Windsor among easier company tackling this trip.

Baldomero showed plenty of ability at Newmarket two weeks ago when second attempting a higher graded 6f handicap and should be respected.

Many A Star is a two-time course and distance winner. With two wins this year makes for appeal.

Spanish Star won this race twelve months ago. Recorded a smart fourth attempting the standard over 6f at Newbury in latest and should be in the mix.


15:35 (Newmarket) Boiling Point

Boiling Point can keep his nose in front of Bold Style when they renew rivalries in the William Hill King Charles II Stakes.

The Roger Varian-trained colt finished second on his last appearance on the Rowley Mile in a seven-furlong conditions contest last month, coming home a length behind winner Ten Bob Tony while only a neck ahead of Bold Style.

Bold Style, who is also trained by Appleby, led in the latter stages before fading inside the final furlong, which just gives Boiling Point the edge to come out on top once again.


15:50 (Goodwood) Clarendon House

Clarendon House finished third behind Diligent Harry, who subsequently placed in a Group One in Dubai, back at Southwell in February and that form suggests he could be a contender to take the spoils.


16:10 (Newmarket) Time Lock


Time Lock should return to winning ways on her seasonal debut in the William Hill Jockey Club Stakes.

The five-year-old daughter of superstar Frankel had a crack at Group One level last time out at Ascot in October, but was made to pay for a slow start and could only finish five lengths behind Poptronic in seventh in the Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes.

However, she returns to a familiar hunting ground in Suffolk, having won on her last two appearances at Newmarket, including a comfortable four-and-a-quarter length success in the Group Three Princess Royal Stakes in September.

Ryan Moore, who was aboard Time Lock in the Group Three triumph, will don the famous Juddmonte colours once more as the mare returns to her favoured trip of a mile and a half.

Her chances will be aided if the rain holds off as she bids to get back in the winner’s enclosure, although she did win in France last September with a little bit of juice in the ground.
