NEWBURY 1.50 FOX CHAIRMAN can make up for his Royal Ascot disappointment by landing this nice prize. He was sent off favourite for the Group 3 Hampton Court Stakes and may well have won but for meeting more traffic problems than a trucker on the M25. Fox Chairman had a luckless run behind Sangarius (pictured) at Ascot He had a full tank crossing the line in second and clearly had no issues stepping up to this distance. He won’t mind the rain that’s been around as it was soft when he won on debut here in Newbury. The others have to improve to beat him. There was a hard luck story for First Nation too when he had to settle for a close third at Sandown 15 days ago. He was flying at the finish and has plenty of stamina for the trip. He would be happier if the track missed the showers as fast ground suits. Pondus found the King Edward VII Stakes too hot at the Royal meeting but this is a drop in grade from that. He earlier won a couple of lesser races nicely and is open to improvement. Set Piece hasn’t been seen since struggling in the 2,000 Guineas when running green down the pack. He has potential and the step up from a mile may help. Dolphin Vista likes to go from the front and may try to nick it. He hasn’t fired on either start this season but his best form would give him a hope.

He was all the rage for the Northumberland Plate a couple of weeks ago before a minor setback ruled him out of the contest. He won’t mind the hustle and bustle given that he won the Pitmen’s Derby 12 months ago and he’d been off for the best part of 10 months then. All ground seems to come the same to him as it was on the fast side when he turned the Cesarewitch into a procession in 2017 but he’s won on slow too. Withhold can stamp his class on the field He has few miles on the clock and is a Group class horse running in a handicap, albeit a very classy one. The Grand Visir rates the main danger after his impressive victory in the Ascot Stakes over 2m4f last time out. He goes on any ground and a 5lb rise in the weights for that success is more than fair. Who Dares Wins won the Plate last time with a well-timed run and clearly stays well. He’ll need some luck to pull off those tactics again but can’t be discounted. Carnwennan won the Plate consolation race over 2m with plenty left in the tank. He is only four so should have plenty of improvement in him and he’s got chances in this hotter contest. Coeur De Lion finished well behind him latest when asked to make up too much ground. He could be on the premises again, especially if he lies up closer to the early pace. 3.00 NEWBURY THE TIN MAN should have too much quality on this drop in class. He has taken a couple of runs to get going this season and wasn’t disgraced when sixth behind Blue Point in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. He should find it a little easier to make up ground against these slightly lesser lights and he’s fine on any going. Snazzy Jazzy has cracking form in more testing conditions and did really well to dead-heat for first at Salisbury last time despite meeting lots of trouble in running. He’s proven in this grade and will be a major player if the ground isn’t too lively. The Tin Man (centre) was far from disgraced on his last start at Royal Ascot Projection is another having his sights lowered and he was more than a little unlucky behind The Tin Man latest when the gap just didn’t come. Oxted and Khaadem are two interesting three-year-olds who get a handy weight allowance from their older rivals. The former went close to landing a Listed contest over course and distance in May and has been sold for £400,000 since. Khaadem was half a length ahead of him that day before finding the Commonwealth Cup too much last time. Both are capable of improvement. Donjuan Triumphant can be hard to catch right and has a had a couple of quiet runs this season. He went close in the Champions Sprint at Ascot last season and would go close at his best. 3.40 NEWBURY MIGHTY SPIRIT can see off well-backed stablemate Ventura Rebel in another hot Super Sprint. Trainer Richard Fahey has a cracking record in this race with three of the past six winners. The Yorkshire-based handler runs four here and these two look the pick. Ventura Rebel ran a cracker to finish second in the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot and deserves to be favourite. But he is very short at around 6-4 in a race where you usually need a little luck in running. The selection has plenty going for him too and wasn’t far off the pace in the Queen Mary. Richard Fahey has a cracking record in the Super Sprint After that major effort, she had to settle for second at Beverley which is understandable for a two-year-old but it was still a good run. There should be a lot more to come and she’s a fair price to hit the frame. Never In Paris caught the eye when winning nicely on her debut at Nottingham earlier this month. This is a much tougher assignment but she zoomed away from her rivals and has lots to build on. Taxiwala performed with credit in the Windsor Castle Stakes when not getting the breaks. Oisin Murphy rode him when he won at Brighton earlier and gets back on board today. Emten is having just her third run after winning on debut at Windsor before a good fifth in the Norfolk Stakes. She’s another for the shortlist. NEWMARKET 2.40 SPARKLE ROLL can shine on this drop in class. John Gosden’s Kingman filly was last seen running a good third in the prestigious Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot last time. She relished the step up to this distance there and did well to place having been held up for probably too long. The quality of opposition today doesn’t look as strong and she has plenty of scope for improvement. Sparkle Roll (left) can make the most of this drop in class At a big price, Alexana is worth forgiving a modest comeback run in a York Group 3 last time when she may have found the 1m6f trip on the testing side. Her efforts over this distance last season were solid and William Haggas continues in excellent form. Gosden has another chance with Kesia who didn’t have to get out of first gear to win on debut at Ascot in May. She hasn’t been seen since which is a slight concern but she should step forward from that bright start. Love So Deep is another taking a step down from the Ribblesdale where she finished a fair fifth. She kept on well from the back and has solid place claims. Blue Gardenia was far from disgraced in the Oaks last time where she tackled this trip for the first time. She needs to improve on that but David O’Meara has his horses in great nick. MARKET RASEN 2.10 CHEF can cook up a big victory in this hot hurdle. CHEF DE TROUPE showed plenty of quality when winning by 10 lengths at Uttoxeter last month. He travelled like a quality performer there and it could have been further. That was over a similar distance and he sneaks in at the bottom of the weights. Longhouse Sale is a rising star of the hurdling game and deserves this step up in class after a comfortable success at Ffos Las. That was his seventh win on the spin and he looks capable of making his mark at this level. The only slight concern is that he’s not raced against more than six rivals before but he can overcome that.

The first of those victories came over this course and distance where he travelled well. A 5lb rise in the weight for winning at Kelso last time shouldn’t put the brakes on. John Constable often places in big races like this as he did in the Swinton Hurdle in May. He has since run a stinker at Cartmel but many horses don’t take to that track. He’s on a long losing run now but won this race in 2017 from 15lb higher in the weights and is capable of making the frame on a going day. 3.20 MARKET RASEN MORE BUCK’S has been aimed at this race by canny trainer Peter Bowen ever since winning it 12 months ago. It’s interesting that his last two runs have been on the Flat and over hurdles to make sure he comes here off a fair handicap mark — and he does. He’s just 1lb higher than when hosing up at Ludlow in January. Bowen has a brilliant record in this contest with six wins so knows exactly what it takes to score. Ronava catches and looks the pick of the Dr Newland runners ahead of Trigger Nichol. The yard are past masters at bringing horses over from Ireland and making the most of their talents. It’s been a similar story with this lightly raced 11-year-old who has won two of his three runs for the stable, including an impressive success at Hexham last time. He’s gone up the weights for that but could have more improvement in him. Casablanca Mix likes a flat track like Rasen and won with a bit up her sleeve at Aintree last time. Fellow Nicky Henderson runner Pacific De Baune has a lot of weight to carry but is in great form as he showed when winning easily at Newton Abbot latest. It would be no surprise to see him involved in the finish. At a big price, Get Out The Gate looked a nice prospect when winning his first two chase runs and his saddle slipped at Cartmel last time so ignore that. He stays well and is coming down the weights.

John Gosden’s Kingman filly was last seen running a good third in the prestigious Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot last time. She relished the step up to this distance there and did well to place having been held up for probably too long. The quality of opposition today doesn’t look as strong and she has plenty of scope for improvement. Sparkle Roll (left) can make the most of this drop in class At a big price, Alexana is worth forgiving a modest comeback run in a York Group 3 last time when she may have found the 1m6f trip on the testing side. Her efforts over this distance last season were solid and William Haggas continues in excellent form. Gosden has another chance with Kesia who didn’t have to get out of first gear to win on debut at Ascot in May. She hasn’t been seen since which is a slight concern but she should step forward from that bright start. Love So Deep is another taking a step down from the Ribblesdale where she finished a fair fifth. She kept on well from the back and has solid place claims. Blue Gardenia was far from disgraced in the Oaks last time where she tackled this trip for the first time. She needs to improve on that but David O’Meara has his horses in great nick. MARKET RASEN 2.10 CHEF can cook up a big victory in this hot hurdle. CHEF DE TROUPE showed plenty of quality when winning by 10 lengths at Uttoxeter last month. He travelled like a quality performer there and it could have been further. That was over a similar distance and he sneaks in at the bottom of the weights. Longhouse Sale is a rising star of the hurdling game and deserves this step up in class after a comfortable success at Ffos Las. That was his seventh win on the spin and he looks capable of making his mark at this level. The only slight concern is that he’s not raced against more than six rivals before but he can overcome that. [boxout headline=”Templegate’s TV tips”] 1.50 Newbury – Fox Chairman (Latest odds) 2.10 Market Rasen – Chef De Troupe (Latest odds) 2.25 Newbury – Withhold (Latest odds) 2.40 Newmarket – Sparkle Roll (Latest odds) 3.00 Newbury – The Tin Man (Latest 0dds) 3.20 Market Rasen – More Buck’s (Latest odds) 3.40 Newbury – Mighty Spirit (Latest odds) [/boxout] St Gallen is another nice prospect who has scored on both his runs over timber. The first of those victories came over this course and distance where he travelled well. A 5lb rise in the weight for winning at Kelso last time shouldn’t put the brakes on. John Constable often places in big races like this as he did in the Swinton Hurdle in May. He has since run a stinker at Cartmel but many horses don’t take to that track. He’s on a long losing run now but won this race in 2017 from 15lb higher in the weights and is capable of making the frame on a going day. 3.20 MARKET RASEN MORE BUCK’S has been aimed at this race by canny trainer Peter Bowen ever since winning it 12 months ago. It’s interesting that his last two runs have been on the Flat and over hurdles to make sure he comes here off a fair handicap mark — and he does. He’s just 1lb higher than when hosing up at Ludlow in January. Bowen has a brilliant record in this contest with six wins so knows exactly what it takes to score. Ronava catches and looks the pick of the Dr Newland runners ahead of Trigger Nichol. The yard are past masters at bringing horses over from Ireland and making the most of their talents. It’s been a similar story with this lightly raced 11-year-old who has won two of his three runs for the stable, including an impressive success at Hexham last time. He’s gone up the weights for that but could have more improvement in him. Casablanca Mix likes a flat track like Rasen and won with a bit up her sleeve at Aintree last time. Fellow Nicky Henderson runner Pacific De Baune has a lot of weight to carry but is in great form as he showed when winning easily at Newton Abbot latest. It would be no surprise to see him involved in the finish. At a big price, Get Out The Gate looked a nice prospect when winning his first two chase runs and his saddle slipped at Cartmel last time so ignore that. He stays well and is coming down the weights.

MILLIONS got stuck on the motorways as parents across the country headed off on the first day of the school holidays. Drivers were set to take 13.4million journeys between Frantic Friday and Sunday. Anti-clockwise traffic towards Dartford crossing on Friday The M1 traffic build up in Milton Keynes To add to the chaos, heavy rain has hit much of the country. Drivers in the West Country faced massive traffic jams after Highways England closed an eight-mile stretch of the M5 because of a spillage of oil and diesel fuel on Friday morning. The closed section was the northbound carriageway heading away from the West Country towards Bristol, but inevitably drivers going south slowed to rubber-neck. CHAOS ON THE ROADS The simple act of slowing down had a knock-on effect, forcing motorists behind them to brake too, and soon huge jams formed on the southbound carriageway heading to the West Country resorts. One holidaymaker tweeted: “If anyone is sat on the M5 doing next to nothing then hi! Boredom is hitting hard!” Another said: “Over four hours to get to J22 on the M5… it was this or spend the day in a tent together. Don’t know which is the lesser of two evils… still five hours to get home.” One person described it as “the worst journey they had ever been on.” Friday was the first day of the summer holidays for many children, but some will break up next week. Data from transportation analytics specialists INRIX showed the M1 and M25 were likely to see some of the longest jams of up to 90 minutes and 60 minutes respectively. There were also likely to be big traffic queues on the M40, M5 and M6. The worst part of the M25 is likely to be the anticlockwise J4 Bromley to J1 Swanscombe/Dartford, with delays of nearly an hour from 2.45pm, with traffic slowing to just 7mph. Trevor Reed, transportation analyst for INRIX, said: “With record-level travellers hitting the road for the start of summer, drivers must be prepared for delays on popular routes. “Although travel times are expected to increase throughout the weekend, Friday afternoon will be the worst time to be on the road as commuters mix with holiday travellers.” Highways England are urging motorists to check their cars before they make a long journey. Richard Leonard, head of road safety at Highway’s England, said: “Breakdowns are still too common. MOTORWAY MAYHEM “We urge motorists to get behind the ‘check your vehicle day’ initiative today (July 19) and while we remind motorists to check their vehicles on a regular basis, this week is really important because schools are breaking up for summer and people are setting off for holidays and getaways. “By doing the correct checks, motorists can make sure they reach their destinations safely and keep us all moving.” It is also expected to be busy at the UK’s railway stations as many opt for trains to try to beat the traffic. Drivers are advised to travel after 8pm if possible to avoid the worst of the traffic. RAC patrol of the year Ben Aldous urged drivers to carry out basic car checks such as oil, coolant and tyre tread and pressure before embarking on a long trip. He said “The last thing any family wants is a breakdown spoiling the start of their summer holiday they’ve no doubt been looking forward to for a long time. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] “Traffic jams are pretty much guaranteed and while it’s possible to predict where some of these will be, every summer we see extra delays caused by broken down vehicles blocking lanes, leaving drivers faced with hours of frustration.” Highways England’s head of road safety Richard Leonard added: “Breakdowns are still too common. We’d urge motorists to check their vehicles on a regular basis and this week is really important because we know that many schools break up for summer and people are setting off on holidays and getaways. “By doing the correct checks before setting off, motorists can make sure they keep everyone moving which means everyone can reach their destination safely and on time.” Cars driving through the rain in Dartford More heavy traffic in Dartford Grey skies over the traffic in Milton Keynes We pay for your stories!

DRIVERS face huge motorway delays this weekend as millions take to the roads for the start of the school summer holidays.

On Saturday, it would be best to avoid the M20 westbound from J7 to J3, which will have 19-minute delays from 9.30am with traffic travelling at 18mph. Then on Sunday the M1 northbound from J12 to J16 will have 40-minute delays from 1.30pm, with an average speed of 24mph.
