Racing fans are looking forward to another cracking weekend of jumps action, with ITV Racing featuring action from Ayr and Newbury on Saturday.

After picking out a 5/1 winner last weekend in Potterman, Reece Charlton is back with three more tips that could well hold some value across the contests.

Here are three tips to consider for Saturday’s ITV Racing schedule.

SAO – 1:15 AYR (9/1 – William Hill)

Under the guidance of Rebecca Menzies, Sao could well be one to note in the Scotty Brand Handicap Chase.

The gelding returns to action following a three-month absence and is currently at a workable mark of 135 for the 2m½f Listed contest.

There are 8 races on the card at the Scottish track this afternoon

The eight-year-old had posted some fair form before his break, with his odds of 9/1 looking slightly overpriced here.

DOYEN BREED – 1:50 AYR (8/1 – bet365)

A former course winner, Doyen Breed could well produce a big effort in the CPMS Novices’ Champion Handicap Chase.

Sandy Thomson’s recruit is currently 11lbs above his last winning mark, but he seems to be holding his own at this level after placing on his last three starts for his connections.

The slightly quicker conditions on offer should suit him and he could well be a threat to the likes of Dusart and Sounds Russian in this contest.

BARRICHELLO – 2:25 AYR (15/2 – Various)

Hailing from Donald McCain’s yard, Barrichello could land Graded success in the Scottish Champion Hurdle at Ayr.

The six-year-old has produced a respectable campaign as of late, winning four of his five starts for his connections.

His mark of 134 looks workable and with serial winner Brian Hughes in the saddle, he could well strike at a decent price of 15/2.
