Saturday's ITV quick tips in full:

13:50 (Haydock) Live In The Dream

14:05 (Beverley) Maw Lam

14:25 (Haydock) Divina Grace

14:40 (Beverley) Moving Force

15:00 (Haydock) Sapphire Seas

15:15 (Beverley) Tropez Power

15:35 (Haydock) Ramazan


13:50 (Haydock) Live In The Dream

Live In The Dream can shine for Adam West in the Betfred Passionate About Sport Achilles Stakes.

The five-year-old provided connections with success at the top level last season, landing the Group One Nunthorpe at York before heading off to the States to aim for the Breeders’ Cup.

There he was fourth in the Turf Sprint, capping a fantastic season where he was never out of the money in eight starts.

He returned to action in the Group Two Temple Stakes at Haydock, running a fine race to go down by only half a length to the race-fit Kerdos on soft ground.

Now he is back on Merseyside to run over the same trip at Listed level and looks the obvious threat to the rest of the field, particularly now he has a run under his belt and is competing on a quicker surface.


14:05 (Beverley) Maw Lam

Adrian Nicholls’ Maw Lam catches the eye in the Hilary Needler Trophy EBF Fillies’ Conditions Stakes.

A winner at Thirsk on debut, the Acclamation bay overcame a slow start on that occasion and looks to have plenty more to offer for the future.


14:25 (Haydock) Divina Grace

Progressive Divina Grace produced a fine effort when third at Goodwood on reappearance last month.

The Rae Guest- trained filly may take a step forward for that run and return to winning ways with both ground and trip in her favour in the Betfred 'Play Fred's 5 Million' Handicap.

Maghlaak was below par at Redcar (1m2f) last time. Scored at Goodwood prior and can bounce back now up in distance with first-time blinkers applied.

Doncaster third Knightswood could give a bold sight off the front with conditions to suit.

Iron Lion won a handicap at the same venue and shouldn't be ruled out.


14:40 (Beverley) Moving Force

The bet365 Two Year Old Trophy Conditions Stakes can also unearth a smart type and Moving Force looks the candidate this time around.

Another from the Richard Fahey yard, this Mehmas colt won nicely over course and distance on debut and is poised to strike again.


15:00 (Haydock) Sapphire Seas

Charlie Appleby’s Sapphire Seas looks the horse to beat in the Group 3 the Betfred Nifty 50 Lester Piggott Fillies’ Stakes, formerly known as the Pinnacle Stakes.

A Frankel filly who was last seen finishing fourth in the Group Two Middleton Stakes at York.

The winner was six lengths clear that day, but Sapphire Seas was only marginally behind the runner-up and her prior form, including a one-mile-three-furlong victory at Kempton, suggests this step up to a mile and a half will be beneficial.


15:15 (Beverley) Tropez Power

It was a competitive seven furlong handicap Tropez Power finished fifth in at York recently.

The John and Sean Quinn-trained five-year-old can return to winning ways racing off an unchanged mark in the Bet365 Handicap.

Zapphire looked in need of the run when sixth at Newcastle during May. Could do better for that outing.

Dual course winner On The River would hold strong claims if able to replicate form shown when runner-up over 1m at Pontefract.

Broken Spear and Eligible both make for each-way appeal.


15:35 (Haydock) Ramazan


Ramazan can break a streak of seconds to prevail for Fahey in the Betfred John of Gaunt Stakes.

Runner-up in his last four starts, including a Listed race and three valuable handicaps, the four-year-old steps up in grade for this event.

He is familiar with Haydock, however, and has a flawless record at the track having won there twice before over both six and seven furlongs.

Fahey’s stable is in fantastic form and plenty is thought of the horse that defeated him last time out, Charlie Fellowes’ Royal Ascot-bound The Wizard Of Eye.
