Get all the info to bash the bookies as ITV’s Matt Chapman runs you through a busy Thursday
IT’S a busy week for us on ITV with three days of Newmarket’s July meeting so plenty of chances to back a winner or two.
It’s all on ITV3 Thursday, and the first televised at Newmarket is the Group 3 Bahrain Trophy over 1m5f.

Atty Persse is a real improver for Roger Charlton and should go well, but stamina is yet to be proven and I like DESERT SKYLINE as the each-way horse in the race.
The selection wasn’t beaten far in the Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot, and while that was probably a poor renewal he was a little unlucky to only finish sixth. Should go well.
It’s the Group 2 July Stakes over 6f at 2.25pm, and readers of this column were done a right favour when Rajasinghe won at tasty odds at Royal Ascot.
I have to take him on here, though, under a penalty and will go with easy Newmarket maiden winner INVINCIBLE ARMY for James Tate.

The selection ran well at Goodwood on debut and could be learning fast enough to land this prize. Silvestre de Sousa is a useful booking.
There’s a 6f handicap at Newmarket at 3.00pm, and I will have a few quid each-way on MOSTAHEL for Richard Hannon.
Matt Chapman’s TV Tips
1.50 Newmarket – Desert Skyline
2.25 Newmarket – Invincible Army
3.00 Newmarket – Mostahel
3.35 Newmarket – Poet’s Word
My hope has raced up to a mile, so will stay strong, and will be suited by a bigger field and stronger pace than he has been getting. Every chance of hitting the frame.
Finally at Newmarket it’s the Group 2 Princess of Wales’s Stakes over 1m4f at 3.35pm.
Sir Michael Stoute was back with a bang in the Eclipse and POET’S WORD might have a bit too much speed for these as he steps up a little bit in trip.
He should travel well and Frontiersman might be worth taking on with cheekpieces first time.
