WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

14:05 Newmarket – Golden Spice

GOLDEN SPICE was poorly drawn when mid-field in the Sandringham at Royal Ascot, and probably found the stiff mile stretching her; she still looks on a fair mark based on her overall form, including an easy success over a subsequent winner at Leicester in May.

14:20 York – Thunderous

Former Dante winner THUNDEROUS goes well here, and he’s more than capable of bouncing out and making all under Franny Norton in what promises to be a tactical affair.

14:40 Newmarket – Jimi Hendrix

JIMI HENDRIX was much improved when third in the Britannia at Royal Ascot, and his run style there suggests he will be better suited by Newmarket, where it’s possible to steal a couple of lengths heading down into the dip. That was his first handicap, and he’s likely to progress again.

15:00 Ascot – Get Ahead

C&D debut winner GET AHEAD was second home of the low numbers in the Queen Mary here last year, and was again poorly drawn when third in Listed races at Bath and York this term. She ran well behind Mitbaahy at Sandown last time, and the winner was unlucky not to bag a Group 3 there last weekend. The handicapper has not been unkind in giving her a mark of 93 for her first handicap, conditions should be perfect, and she will have no excuses this time.

WANT FAST RESULTS? NO PROBLEM!

15:15 Newmarket – Victory Dance

VICTORY DANCE was odds-on for his C&D debut last month, but looked in need of the run for experience, and did well to win in the circumstances. He’ll improve plenty for that, and has a similar profile to Native Trail, who won this last year for the same connections.

15:35 Ascot – Chindit

CHINDIT has been mixing it in much better company than this, and while he doesn’t have much in hand in terms of the ratings, he should have the class to pull him through now dropped to Group 2 company. 

15:50 Newmarket – Jumby

JUMBY is well treated on his best form but a habit of starting slowly is costing him in sprints, and the last time he raced over 7f he was a winner on the Rowley Mile here. He looks ready for a return to this trip, and Christophe Soumillon is an excellent booking.

16:05 York – Chichester

CHICHESTER was transformed by a visor last season, winning by a wide margin at Ayr in September, but hasn’t worn the headgear this season. He ran poorly over a trip too far at Royal Ascot, but might have needed that after a break, and he should run much better with a visor retried now, and back under ideal conditions.

16:25 Newmarket – Artorius

This looks sub-standard even by recent standards, and the principals from the Platinum Jubilee are the ones to concentrate on. ARTORIUS got his eye in at Ascot, where he was given too much to do, and I think he can reverse the form with the pair who beat him with slightly modified tactics.

16:40 York – Justanotherbottle

With Winter Power not looking herself since winning the Nunthorpe, there is value against her again, and JUSTANOTHERBOTTLE looks too big to me. He should have been withdrawn when getting very upset in the stalls before the Dash at Epsom, and won well at Ripon next time. I’m convinced he is getting faster with age, and can book a place in the Nunthorpe itself if he wins this.
