Horse Racing tips: Mick Fitzgerald’s Daily Double at Newmarket today

Can Fitzy's brace be ace? Let's hope so.

Mick Fitzgerald


15:00 La Barrosa

LA BARROSA is a son of Lope de Vega and cost 750,000 guineas a yearling. He was impressive at Ascot and can take the step up in grade now, especially as he receives 5lb from Ventura Tormento.

Dark Lion has kept good company but has struggled to stamp his authority in better grade contests so far. Yazaman promises so much, but has not looked an easy ride the last couple of runs.

Qaader looked really good in the Coventry Stakes at Ascot, however he has not looked the same horse since. He is the one horse that if back to that level would look very overpriced.

15:35 Mildenberger

It’s lovely to see MILDENBERGER back on track after his second to Nayef Road at Newcastle in the Sagaro Stakes. Withhold was favourite that day, but finished seventh and has kept top company since, and was close up at Salisbury behind Trueshan.

Ghostwatch looked like he got stuck in the mud in the Ebor Handicap at York, but he had run really well at Deauville and also at Newmarket on the July course.

Ranch Hand ran in the same race as Withhold at Salisbury and also ran with real credit in the Ebor. This lad has been consistent this season and will run well again.

Mildenberger will be hard to beat at the course where he finished third to Roaring Lion in the Royal Lodge Stakes.
