There's £50,000 on offer in this weekend's free-to-play ITV7 and Dave Smith has the guide you need for the crucial races.

13:50 Newbury - Shalaa Carnarvon Stakes (Listed) (Class 1)

There was a lot to like about SPACE TRAVELLER'S return to action at Newmarket when finding only the classy Shine So Bright too good in the Free Handicap. He's nicely bred and will want further in time but could have the speed to take this.

14:05 Newmarket - Betway Fairway Stakes (Listed) (Class 1)

AL HILALEE was well held when last seen in the QIPCO 2000 Guineas, but had previously enjoyed an unbeaten juvenile season. He is taken to get the better of favourite Raise You who has to prove he's effective on a fast surface.

14:25 Newbury - Al Rayyan Stakes (Registered As The Aston Park Stakes) (Group 3) (Class 1)

On all known form this looks to be a race well within the grasp of CRYSTAL OCEAN. He was just beaten in last year's King George at Ascot and can take this before his sights are raised again for the rest of the summer

14:40 Newmarket - Betway King Charles II Stakes (Listed) (Class 1)

The juvenile form of JASH makes him a warm order in this and rightly so. He's comfortably ahead on the official ratings and although he's not been tried beyond six furlongs, he's bred for this trip.

15:00 Newbury - Al Zubarah London Gold Cup Handicap (Class 2)

He's up 8lbs in the weights but there appeared to be more under the bonnet of GOOD BIRTHDAY when he surged clear at Doncaster last time out. He was green that day so would have learnt from the run and comes here in good heart with course form a plus too.

15:15 Newmarket - Betway Handicap (Class 2)

You couldn't fail to be impressed by the speed displayed by the Roger Varian-trained MORAAWED when reeling in Dazzling Dan last time out. He's up 8lb for that success but the pair were clear of the remainder. Top Breeze may have been unsuited by the ground last time and could bounce back.

15:40 Newbury - Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes (Group 1) (Str) (Class 1)

Conditions appear to have come right for high-class mare LAURENS and with her sex allowance she's taken to make a winning return in a fascinating renewal of the Lockinge. She is a proven Group One winner and should take high rank among the miler's again this term.
