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.

14:40 York - coral.co.uk Rockingham Stakes (Listed) (Class 1)

There have only been two horses able to overcome double-figure draws in the last 10 runnings of this race and that could put LAMPANG's chances in jeopardy. Put simply, he's the best horse in the contest and since champion jockey Silvestre de Sousa has returned to the saddle he has a 25% success rate, surely a winning combination here.

14:55 Newmarket - Dubai Autumn Stakes (Group 3) (Class 1)

There can't be many Group races that haven't been won by Aidan O'Brien and he tries to overcome that here with Persia. Military March is beautifully-bred but this may be a little soon and Al Suhail is untried on ground with a bit of cut in it; though there is form on the dam's side. MOLATHAM's form took a huge boost when Wichita took a Group 3 prize next time out after defeat to the selection.

15:15 York - Smart Money's On Coral Handicap (Class 2)

Dark Vision was an impressive scorer at Goodwood last year but has endured a frustrating season, yet he looks down to a much more realistic mark. Harrovian will be a warm order at the top of the market though he has COOLAGH FOREST as a huge danger and Richard Fahey's charge was impressive over course and distance last time out.

15:30 Newmarket - Darley Dewhurst Stakes (Group 1) (Class 1)

Though Ballydoyle come here mob-handed with four to attack the favourite, it is surely all in vain. PINATUBO is rated higher than Frankel was at this stage of their respective careers and any slight replication of his turbo-charged rout at the Curragh should see him burn his rivals out.

15:50 York - Coral Sprint Trophy Handicap (Class 2)

The usual cavalry charge on the Knavesmire and another chance is taken on the admirable and consistent SUMMERGHAND. David O'Meara's horse is often on the premises and is taken to run another big race. Danzeno and Gulliver could be dangers.

16:10 Newmarket - Emirates Cesarewitch Stakes (Heritage Handicap) (Class 2)

No less than 31 runners and master NH trainer Willie Mullins arrives over the Irish Sea with plenty of chances. He looks to follow-up last year's victory and the booking of Frankie for Buildmeupbuttercup is worth taking note of. Yet RANCH HAND gets the vote. He's unexposed, has a good strike-rate already and rates as a respected runner.

Saturday's ITV7 is completed by the 19:15 at Vincennes.
