    13:30 Haydock – Kuwait city

    ITV Friday gets under way here with a handicap for juveniles over 5f. A nightmare race. I’ll take a chance with KUWAIT CITY for John Butler and Luke Morris. After winning at Yarmouth my hope had an impossible task at Royal Ascot and at York in a big field handicap there. However, at Windsor last time from off the pace the son of Pearl Secret showed he still had potential and if ridden the same here might slip into a place at least.

    13:50 Newmarket – Zanbaq

    ITV are also at Newmarket Friday for this Listed event over 1m. Crystal Caprice is improving fast but the one to beat has to be ZANBAQ for Roger Varian and Jim Crowley. A winner at Haydock in May, Zanbaq went on to chase home Heredia in the Sandringham at Royal Ascot. Her Group 3 run last time was disappointing behind Jumbly but to be honest she was given loads to do and is much better than that suggests.

    14:05 Haydock – Delorean

    This is a handicap over 1m. DELOREAN might have the wings to see off most of these for Hector Crouch and Ralph Beckett. The Time Test gelding has hung a bit in his races but did enough to score at Haydock last time and a 4lb rise looks fair enough.

    14:25 Newmarket – Eternal Pearl

    A Group 3 now in the Dubai Stakes over 1m4f. I see no reason why ETERNAL PEARL can’t see off likely favourite Sea Silk Road. On a four-timer for Godolphin, Eternal Pearl impressed in a Group 3 at Deauville last time and is a strong stayer at this trip. She will be hard to beat for Charlie Appleby and William Buick.

    14:40 Haydock – Speycaster

    Another handicap here over 1m6f. This could be another for Hector Crouch and Ralph Beckett with SPEYCASTER who must have place claims at least. Lightly raced this term my selection ran a good fourth at this track behind Nathanael Greene at this track and if repeating that off the same mark has strong claims.

    15:00 Newmarket – Commissioning

    Up in class for the Group 2 Rockfel over 7f for two-year-olds. Many of these open to improvement and that includes the unbeaten COMMISSIONING for John and Thady Gosden and Robert Havlin. The Kingman filly looked decent on debut at this track in July and it’s a tip in itself the Gosdens run her here.

    15:35 Newmarket – Mutasaabeq

    The feature of the day in the Group 2 Joel Stakes over 1m. This is a pretty desperate renewal. Not many believe MUTASAABEQ stays a mile and he was hopeless at Goodwood last time. That said I suspect his second to Chindit at Ascot would be just about good enough to win this so I will give him yet another go for Jim Crowley and Charlie Hills.

    So best of luck and pray for Yeeehaaas. You hear me Paddy?
