Thunder Rock 4.15 @ 11/4

Evolicatt 3.17 @ 4/1

Selected Newmarket – good to firm on this undulating, galloping and stiff track

1.15 Not much to go on here but connections had to go to £450,000 to secure the well related Syndicated and as he’s now a 4/5 shot , expectations are high , but an easy pass at those odds.

No Bet

2.25 This is likely to be a 3 filly war , but this longer trip may well not suit Godolphin’s With The Moonlight on pedigree . The fav is recent course winner Crenelle , who also goes up in trip and it’s uncertain if the extra yardage will suit , we’ll soon find out . Both she and Peripatetic have got the better of the useful yardstick Fonteyn and as the latter is pretty much guaranteed to get the trip , gets the nod .

¼ pt  win Peripatetic @ 4/1

3.00 A good quality Group 2 for fillies ,and pretty open . The French mare Ebaiyra runs in the famous silks of The Aga Khan , and brings the best form to the table , but could find the trip on the sharp side . There is very little between the progressive fillies in Lilac Road and VilleDe Grace and both have clear claims today but the nod goes to the downgraded Dreamloper , who ended last season with a cracking running on 3rd in a Group 1 here . Tactically versatile and tough in the finish .

¼ pt win Dreamloper @ 5/1


4.15 This will take little winning and could well be 3rd time lucky for Thunder Rock after two good placed efforts this season , the latest over C&D and as he clearly stays , I expect a more prominent ride today .

½ pt  win Thunder Rock @ 11/4

Selected Hamilton – good to soft on this undulating, galloping and stiff track

2.05 In an uncompetitive heat , the highly consistent Forza Orta looks good to improve upon his recent close 3rd on his comeback spin , and the two ahead have done plenty for the form since . Proven at the track and on easy ground . Just about worth a bet .

½ pt  win Forza Orta @ 6/4

2.35 Strictly on the ratings , Gis A Sub has an easy task , but this drop in trip wont help and is up against some in form 5 furlong specialist . Mitbahhy has been acquitting himself well in a couple of hot sprints and gets the nod , and the top stable makes a 720 mile round trip .

¼ pt win Mitbaahy @ 15/8

Selected Salisbury – Persistent light rain for most of the day could well alter the ground from good to firm to much easier ground . Keep an eye on the ground . The track is  undulating, galloping and stiff.


3.17 Experience counts for plenty in 2yo races and Evolicatt has her 3rd outing and showed significant improvement in her 2nd start , chasing home one with good experience on the board and we’d be unlucky if a newcomer was up to racing at her level .

¼ pt win Evolicatt @ 4/1

3.53 It’s intriguing that Jim Crowley has forsaken Newmarket for his retainer , the famous Shadwell colours to partner the unraced Zainalarab , a £110,000 purchase and Roger Varian is 3 from 4 with  unraced 3yos here and being by Wooton Bassett , if the ground turns soft , so much the better .

¾ pt win Zainlarab @ 9/2
