Read on for his top tips – plus all his ITV tips from Lingfield and Newcastle at the bottom – and back a horse by clicking their odds below.

DARK MOON RISING (1.30 Newcastle, nap)

He ended last season with a good third in hot company at York and returned last month to land a smooth success at Chelmsford.

He’s best over this trip and can strike upped to Listed level.

LORD OF THE LODGE (2.35 Newcastle, nb)

He loves it here and has no luck in Dubai last time. He scored well on his last run here and this trip is ideal.

AL ZARAQAAN (4.45 Newcastle, treble)

He won here in January and went down on the nod for a Kempton Listed contest 20 days ago.

This trip is ideal and he can have a big say under Hollie Doyle.

AL ZARAQAAN can give Archie Watson a Good Friday in the Easter Classic (4.45 Newc).

He went close at Kempton last time and can nick this from the front.

2.00 NEW: MY OBERON held his own in the £3m Dubai Turf. His AW form is strong as his cosy win at Southwell showed in February.

La Tihaty had a rare blip at Wolver latest but won four in a row before that and can bounce back.

Amilcar is an interesting French raider who is a Listed winner.

2.20 LIN: TOMMY DE VITO is lightly raced and followed two wins with a close second at Kempton.

He has a big chance off the same mark. If You Dare will go from the front and may hold on after a third here latest.

Whittle Le Woods has place claims.

2.35 NEW: LORD OF THE LODGE loves it here and has no luck in Dubai last time.

He scored well on his last run here and this trip is ideal. Spycatcher was a neck ahead of him latest and is in the mix.

Veteran Judicial is respected, as are Harry’s Bar and Ejtilaab.

2.55 LIN: VESPASIAN was a good winner at Newcastle last time and scored here earlier.

He has lots of pace and more to come. Zameka did the job well at Wolver and is a danger. Fly To Glory is best over this distance.

3.10 NEW: EL CABALLO is the clear form pick after a good Listed win at Lingfield.

He has scored here so this track holds no fears. Tiber Flow deserves this hike in class and saw off My Dubawi well last month.

Space Cowboy didn’t have much to beat here last time in October but did it well.

3.45 NEW: INTERNATIONALANGEL scooted in here before traffic problems stopped her at Wolver latest.

This trip is ideal and she’s won six of her past seven. The booking of Frankie on Khatwah takes the eye.

Highfield Princess has run well at Group 1 level and drops in grade here. Rising Star is well named and won easily here latest.

4.15 NEW: RAINBOW DREAMER was too good for Earlofthecotswolds when they met at Wolverhampton in January and can confirm that.

He stays well and Alan King has a cracking record with his Flat runners. The Twiston-Davies runner is respected and won’t be far away.

Sleeping Lion was his usual reliable self when winning at Kempton last time in February. He was slightly below par on his last visit here but can go well.

Nate The Great battled to score here last month and has place claims.

4.45 NEW: AL ZARAQAAN won here in January and went down on the nod for a Kempton Listed contest 20 days ago.

This trip is ideal and he can have a big say under Hollie Doyle. Tyrrhenian Sea won his first three races here and was unlucky at Kempton.

He can bounce back. United Front is better than his modest Lincoln run and is an each-way player.

Living Legend beat the tip last time and is another contender.
