1:50 Newmarket

The 1:50 Newmarket race is a trappy little handicap over the 1m distance. Finest Sound heads the market and will do for many but he has been creeping up in the handicap.

The one for me here is HAQEEQY who has been improving with every run. He has impressed with his wins the last twice and he is still totally unexposed. He represents top connections and is held in high regard by the Gosden team.

 

2.05 Ascot 

The first race live on ITV from Ascot is a Class 3 fillies handicap over the 1m distance.

I like DECLARED INTEREST here who ran well finishing 5th in the Sandringham at Royal Ascot. She ran a little fresh there and looked to me as though she’d improve for the run. She is totally unexposed and I think she well prove to be a lot better than this current mark. A bold show is expected for the Ralph Beckett charge who as we all know is very good with his fillies.

 

2:25 Newmarket

The 2:25 race is a handicap for the fillies over the 7f distance. Indie Angel heads the market for the Gosden team after just being touched off last time out and is a worthy market leader.

The one I like here is SPRING OF LOVE for the Godolphin team. I am happy to put a line through her last run as Appleby’s horses weren’t running well but they are now a stable in top form. Her run first time out was impressive and it reminds me of Al Suhail who had a similar profile showing promise before a poor run last time out. He won easily on Thursday and hopefully Spring of Love can do the same here.

 

2.40 Ascot

The 2:40 race here is a tricky little affair full of unexposed sorts. Celestron heads the market for the Gosden team but I was disappointed with him last time out so I’m happy to look elsewhere.

The one for me here is the rank outsider SUMMIT REACH for the Ralph Beckett team. I am happy to ignore one bad run and that was this horse’s effort last time out. Before that he was progressing well and he is bred to be a decent sort over this distance. This is his turf debut and hopefully, he can improve for it. In what looks a tricky wide-open race I’m happy to take a chance on him here.

3.00 Newmarket

The 3.00 race is the Superlative Stakes, a Group 2 contest over the 7f distance. It is a hot renewal with Gosden, O’Brien and Appleby all represented with first time out winners and they are sitting in the front three of the market.

The one I like most here is the Aiden O’Brien trained HUDSON RIVER. He looked a top 2-year-old at the Curragh last time out making all to win well. There is bound to be more to come from Hudson River and I think he is a fair price to take this.

 

3.15 Ascot

The 3:15 at Ascot is a Group 2 contest over the 1m distance.

It is all about MOHAATHER NAP here for me who ran well in the Queen Anne over this course and distance despite getting no luck in running. He was certainly the horse to take out of that race and he looks a class above his opponents for me. I thought he’d be shorter in the betting than he is here and I think Crowley will settle him in rear before making his way through the pack to race victory.

 

3.35 Newmarket

The 3.35 race here is the biggest race of the weekend and it is the Group 1 Darley July Cup for the sprinters. It is close at the top of the market with Golden Horde representing the Commonwealth Cup form and then the Diamond Jubilee Stakes form being represented by Hello Youmzaim, Skeptical and Khaadem.

I am going to side with GOLDEN HORDE NB here. I was really impressed with his win at Royal Ascot and that was a quicker time than the winner of the Diamond Jubilee Hello Youmzain. Clive Cox always said anything he done at the age of 2 was a bonus as he would come into his own at 3 and he’s done just that. Cox is very good with his sprinters and I think Golden Horde has still got more improvement in him throughout the season. I think he’ll be tough to beat here on ground he will handle.

 

3.50 Ascot

The 3:50 race at Ascot is a wide open handicap over the 7f distance. Arecibo heads the market but also seems to run a solid race without winning.

The horse I’d recommend e/w here is MOUNTAIN PEAK. Mountain Peak won well last time out staying on strongly coming from off the pace. I think this race will be run similar to that with a strong pace up front and he can use his turn of foot to come with a late burst. He has won over this course and distance which is a positive and if the rain stays away I think he should be a lot shorter.

 

4.10 Newmarket

The 4.10 race is a competitive handicap race over 7f called the bet365 Bunberry Cup.

The horse I like here is LETHAL LUNCH EW Lethal Lunch caught the eye last time at Ascot traveling well, staying on strongly but he didn’t quite have the pace over the 6f distance there to get close to the winner. This step up to 7f with that comeback run under his belt makes him a lively outsider here for me.
