13:50 Newmarket – Manaccan

John Ryan’s runner cost 100k guineas as a two-year-old at the Breeze Up sales and it is proving to be money well spent. He is very talented and put up a great performance in the Mill Reef Stakes where he wasn’t beaten miles, despite having a torrid run throughout. He drops back down to the minimum 5-furlong trip and has the services of Adam Kirby on board. He rides plenty of winners for the stable and MANACCAN is a big each-way player.

14:25 Newmarket – Rishes Baar

There’s not a massive amount between most of these runners on official ratings, but RISHES BAAR gets the services of Ryan Moore in the saddle which is a bonus. She was completely run off her feet over 5 furlongs last time at Ayr and will find the rhythm of this contest over 7 furlongs much more suitable. She has a good each-way opportunity against the market leaders.

15:00 Newmarket – Chindit

It now seems a long time since that reappearance debut success at Newbury, but things just haven’t gone right for this colt since and could have a very good opportunity to get his head in front again.

He got going a little bit too late at Goodwood last time when fourth in the Celebration Mile, but will be positioned to attack at the bottom of the dip this time, especially as it’s a track he knows very well. An eye-catching run when staying on in the 2,000 Guineas last May and a reproduction of that form will make CHINDT very tough to beat now.

15:15 York – Trais Fluors

He was fancied in places for the Cambridgeshire, but never really got into the race. He was held up and just stayed on from the back, never looking like he was go to threaten the leaders. TRAIS FLUORS is better than that though and there is no doubting he is well handicapped. Silvestre De Sousa takes the ride again and was successful on him earlier in the campaign at Sandown. I’ll give him one more throw of the dice at an each-way price.

Newmarket

15:35 Newmarket – Inspiral

John Gosden’s filly has been foot perfect on her three racecourse appearances and wins so far. Although the competition was not that strong at Doncaster last time, you had to be very impressed with the way that she strode clear off a very slow early gallop. Admittedly INSPIRAL is going to find this Group 1 field slightly tougher, but she can rubberstamp herself at the top of 1,000 Guineas antepost market for next season with another victory now.

15:50 York – Mahrajaan

Completed the hat-trick in very taking fashion at Hamilton last time despite being checked at a vital stage approaching the furlong marker and has to be the proverbial Group horse in a handicap. MAHRAJAAN sits on a mark of 95 and surely that is nowhere near his ceiling rating. The biggest danger will be Ravenscraig Castle, who ran an absolute blinder in the Melrose Stakes at York last time, but has also taken a hike in the handicap.

16:10 Newmarket – Moshaawer

Has been building a very nice profile for himself, but just couldn’t give away a massive lump of weight away to the winner Valley Forge in the Melrose Stakes at York. MOSHAAWER travelled through that contest very smoothly from the back of the pack, after a bit of a troubled start.

He should have the natural pace to cope with the drop back down two furlongs to 1m 4f now. It looks a good opportunity for us at the prices as Godolphin’s top-weight Siskany will be popular in the market after his gelding operation.
