Saturday racing tips: Matt Chapman selects his best bets for ITV Racing at Ascot, Haydock and Wincanton

WE'VE banged in some winners in recent weeks and I'm hoping Storm Dennis stays away this weekend.

There's some cracking stuff at Ascot and it'd be a shame to lose it so close to the Festival.

The 1.50pm at Ascot is the Grade 2 Reynoldstown Novices' Chase over 3m.

SAM BROWN is unbeaten in two starts this term since coming back from injury and this lightly raced eight-year-old looks super special for Anthony Honeyball.

This is the big test, but I am sticking with him until he gets beat. I was at Lingfield when he won first time this term and his jumping was amazing. He loves the mud as well.

There are plenty in here with a chance but I love this horse.

Matt Chapman's ITV Picks:

  • Ascot 1.50 - SAM BROWN (NAP)
  • Ascot 2.25 - Red Indian
  • Ascot 3.00 - Dorking Boy (EW)
  • Ascot 3.35 - Cyrname
  • Haydock 2.05 - West Approach
  • Haydock 3.15 - Yala Enki (EW)
  • Wincanton 2.45 - Quel Destin
