The Shark's taken a fancy to an old favourite in the 2.45

Like a few from the stable, Arecibo was an expensive purchase from France, however things have not gone to plan in two races to date and as a result he has had the cruelest cut of all. He returns for his third start a gelding.

He looks to be on a lenient mark and his previous winning form in France had been on the all-weather. There are lots of positives for him at a massive price.

It was a bloodless victory for Summer Romance, the daughter of Kingman, on her racecourse debut at Yarmouth.

A half-sister to the superstar Rizeena she comes under the could be anything banner and this just looks a stepping stone for bigger and better things for this 800,000 Euro purchase.

Newcastle 14:25

Invincible Army had looked even better than ever in the early part of the 2019 campaign with smooth victories. But that run came to an end in the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot when the ground had gone against him.

It’s no surprise to see him back up very quickly switching onto the all-weather as he won’t have done a stroke seven days ago while not letting himself down under those conditions. He is the class act in here.

York 14:45

It’s becoming a bit monotonous going for Great Prospector, however we finally get a change of rider which should suit as he was taken back out of the contest early and never put in it until far too late last time.

Let’s hope he gets a positive ride as he surely has enough ability to win one of these comfortably.

Newcastle 15:00

Rare Groove looked really good when quickening up in taking fashion over slightly shorter at Hamilton two starts ago.

His last start, however, was a major disappointment and it can only be the quickening underfoot conditions that didn’t suit him. His all-weather record is fairly decent and he’s unexposed stepping up in distance, though he already has some course form to his name over shorter.

Newmarket 15:15

Limato, an old favourite, is going to go off at a decent price as a lot of people will latch onto the recent form of Glorious Journey behind Dream of Dreams and also Cape Byron.

However, strictly on the ratings Glorious Journey has around 5lbs to find with the selection, who put up a pleasing reappearance when staying on late having had a blow at York, I think he’s going to be the wrong price.

Newcastle 15:35

Time To Study didn’t run badly in this contest last year off 108 and this time around he reappears on the lowly mark of 96.

Added to that he returned to form with a vengeance at Royal Ascot with an excellent third over further. Back over a course and distance, which clearly suits, and the booking of Kerrin McEvoy catches the eye massively.
