13:50 Newmarket – Strike Red

Strike Red was unlucky behind Gale Force Maya at Newmarket last time out. He was one to put in the notebook and he pops up here again. Strike Red is drawn in stall 20 and he’ll do me.

14:05 Thirsk – Pisanello

Pisanello moved to David O’Meara in July and ran ten days later. He disappointed a bit but he bounced back earlier this month with a win at Beverley. O’Meara might have found what makes him tick. He could be rated 100 by the end of the year.

14:25 Newmarket – Dhahabi

Dhahabi has had a major layoff but on his last start he was third to One Ruler which is pretty solid form. I’m going to side with him. I have doubts over the top weight horse Movin Time. Harry Davies is taking 7lbs off his back so I’m thinking Roger Varian feels he’s maxed out. Fast Medicine is a short priced favourite but I’ll take a chance on Dhahabi and Charlie Appleby.

14:40 Goodwood – Bashkirova

I keep getting drawn back to Bashkirova. She was good on her first couple of starts last year. She disappointed last time out at Doncaster but I’m willing to chance her for William Haggas and Stevie Donohoe.

15:00 Newmarket – Atalis Bay

I’m going with Atalis Bay, who’s a decent price. Robert Cowell has a great record with sprinters. Atalis Bay won at Nottingham in April last year and was second behind Winter Power at York at the Dante meeting. He could have improved and he can definitely get involved with his rating.

15:40 Newmarket – Point Lonsdale (each way)

2,000 Guineas

It’s hard to oppose Native Trail but his price isn’t attractive considering the depth of this race. Lusail is a huge price which shows how good this race is. Point Lonsdale looked the best of Aidan O’Brien’s two-year-old’s throughout last summer. He impressed at Ascot and Leopardstown, then won again at the Curragh. He was no match for Native Trail in the National Stakes. I firmly believe Native Trail is the best horse but at the prices, I’d chance Point Lonsdale each way.
