Newbury Races: Tips, racecards and betting preview for Hackwood Stakes day live on ITV

THERE is a high-class card at Newbury on Saturday afternoon.

The ITV cameras are in town, with the feature Hackwood Stakes due off a t 4pm. Our man Jack Keene has taken a close look at the big terrestrial races.

It was impossible not to be impressed with METHOD'S runaway debut victory at Doncaster.

He moved through the race like a very smart horse and the form has since been given a major boost, with the runner-up a close second in a Group 2 at Newmarket.

He is a short price at the head of the betting but will likely take the world of beating.

The one who makes the most each-way appeal is Mighty Gurkha. He bolted up on debut and was far from disgraced when fifth in the Windsor Castle.

Imperial Yellow and Kraken Power are the pick of the remainder.

SELECTION: Method

Tomorrow's Dream is sure to be popular following her cosy success at Chepstow.

But narrow preference is for ABLE GRACE, who won going away over 7f at Haydock last time out.

She looks sure to relish the step up to 1m and William Cox takes off a handy 3lb.

The unbeaten Tonyx did well to win over 1m2f last time despite racing keenly, but this drop in trip poses a slight question mark.

SELECTION: Able Grace

VIRGIN SNOW was too keen for her own good when second in a tactical Listed race at Newcastle last time.

She will need to settle better this time, but they should go a decent gallop and the step up to 1m4f shouldn't be an issue.

She can make the most of her weight allowance, though La Lune clearly relished the step up to this trip when a good second at Pontefract and she isn't opposed lightly.

Makawee drops in class and commands respect, but she would ideally be suited to a softer surface.

It's too soon to write off Cabaletta, and a good run from her wouldn't be the biggest surprise.

SELECTION: Virgin Snow

JUDICIAL was a ready winner of the Chipchase Stakes last time out.

He is like a fine wine, getting better with age, and although he has to give weight all round a reproduction of his Newcastle performance could be good enough.

Repartee brings plenty of potential to the table and he looks the chief threat, though he will need to step up on his Windsor performance in a deeper race.

The Tin Man was never able to land a blow in the Diamond Jubilee on his reappearance, and he will pose a huge threat to all if he can rediscover something like his best form.

This is last-chance saloon for Mums Tipple, but he at least has his ideal conditions here and there will be no excuses if he doesn't go close.

SELECTION: Judicial
