Relief Rally faces a bumper field of 20 rivals in the lucrative Super Sprint as the Queen Mary second bids to justify favouritism at Newbury.

The Class 2 contest over 5f is one of the most unique on the British calendar as entry is closed off to horses purchased at certain sales for less than £65,000 and weight is based on their sales price instead of form.

Eve Johnson Houghton pair Bobsleigh and Juniper Berries are among the main market rivals to Relief Rally, trained by William Haggas, while Richard Hannon fires seven darts at the race.

The latest Super Sprint odds are on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise Timeform’s guide to the runners as well as betting tips from the racing boffins can be found below.

Super Sprint tips

Timeform: RELIEF RALLY confirmed herself an excellent prospect when a narrow second in the Queen Mary and, if she can back that up, she should be able to resume winning ways. Bobsleigh also ran well at Royal Ascot and he looks the main threat ahead of Son of Corballis, who landed an Irish listed race last time.

Super Sprint runners

The Camden Colt

Trainer: Richard Hannon Jockey: William Buick Age: 2 Weight: 9st 4lbs Draw: &

Footstepsinthesand colt who put experience to good use when making all in Haydock novice (6f) in May. Back on track at Pontefract last time but others have more potential.


Instant Recall

Trainer: K. R. Burke Jockey: P. J. McDonald Age: 2 Weight: 9st 3lbs Draw: 10

Showed much more than on debut when second of 8 in minor event (20/1) at Haydock but failed to back it up at Nottingham since. Faces a stiff task in first-time cheekpieces.


Mr Baloo

Trainer: Richard Hannon Jockey: Sam Hitchcott Age: 2 Weight: 9st 1lbs Draw: 6

Back on track when fourth in a nursery at Ascot last time. Stable has a good record in races of this nature but he faces a stiff task on form.


Son Of Corballis

Trainer: Kieran Patrick Cotter Jockey: Declan McDonogh Age: 2 Weight: 9st 1lbs Draw: 13

Made a winning start at Tipperary and back on the up when making all in a listed contest there last time. Was seen to good effect that day and probably isn’t open to much more improvement, but can go close with a repeat.


Relief Rally

Trainer: William Haggas Jockey: Tom Marquand Age: 2 Weight: 9st 0lbs Draw: 18

Impressive winner of first two starts before a big effort when just denied in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot. That’s the best piece of form on show and she’s the type to go on progressing, so clearly the one to beat.


World Of Darcy

Trainer: K. R. Burke Jockey: Clifford Lee Age: 2 Weight: 9st 0lbs Draw: 9

Wasn’t unbacked prior to making perfect start at Pontefract and he fared best of the rest behind the smart Elite Status in the National Stakes at Sandown. Bit disappointing in Windsor Castle Stakes since but not completely written off.


Ziggy’s Phoenix

Trainer: Richard Hannon Jockey: Jim Crowley Age: 2 Weight: 9st 0lbs Draw: 21

Fairly useful filly who won a Ripon novice and the Lily Agnes at Chester in the spring. Hasn’t progressed since that and had limitations exposed in listed company at Newmarket 3 weeks ago.



Trainer: Eve Johnson Houghton Jockey: Charles Bishop Age: 2 Weight: 8st 13lbs Draw: 16

Made a winning debut in 6-runner maiden at Bath in ready fashion and showed useful form when following up in class 2 event at Epsom. Good sixth in Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot and boasts solid claims with the scope for further improvement.


Relentless Warrior

Trainer: Andrew Balding Jockey: Rob Hornby Age: 2 Weight: 8st 13lbs Draw: 12

Just modest form to date and, while he ran well in a minor event at Ffos Las 27 days ago, it’s hard to imagine he’ll feature in this.


Liv My Life

Trainer: Richard Hannon Jockey: Pat Dobbs Age: 2 Weight: 8st 12lbs Draw: 3

Back on the up when scoring at Chester 3 weeks ago. Might not have finished improving but significant step forward required if she’s to make an impact in this.



Trainer: Rod Millman Jockey: Oisin Murphy Age: 2 Weight: 8st 11lbs Draw: 11

Havana Grey filly who confirmed debut promise when making all in Goodwood novice but found listed company too hot at York a couple of months ago. Others preferred.


Call Glory

Trainer: Charles Hills Jockey: David Egan Age: 2 Weight: 8st 11lbs Draw: 19

Confirmed previous encouragement to open his account in a seller at Goodwood 41 days ago but this is a significantly stiffer task for new yard.



Trainer: Richard Hannon Jockey: Sean Levey Age: 2 Weight: 8st 11lbs Draw: 5

Gradually progressive and off the mark in straighforward fashion at Lingfield last time. That form has been boosted since and she’s not a forlorn hope.


La Guardia

Trainer: Richard Hannon Jockey: Kevin Stott Age: 2 Weight: 8st 11lbs Draw: 2

Looked a good prospect when chasing home Jabaara in a traditionally-warm Newmarket contest on debut, then easily landing 6f Goodwood fillies’ maiden a week later. That form worked out well and her sub-par showing in the Chesham is excusable.


Payment In Kind

Trainer: Harry Eustace Jockey: Richard Kingscote Age: 2 Weight: 8st 11lbs Draw: 8

Profitable colt who made a positive start when runner-up at this course 9 days ago. Faces a quick turnaround and may well be found out by a lack of experience.



Trainer: Roger Teal Jockey: George Rooke Age: 2 Weight: 8st 11lbs Draw: 20

Has quite a speedy pedigree and knew his job well enough to make a successful start at Ffos Las 27 days ago. Worth a go in a race like this, albeit he has a fair bit to find with some.


Jolly Sailor

Trainer: Richard Hannon Jockey: Thomas Greatrex Age: 2 Weight: 8st 10lbs Draw: 15

Yet to show anything and looks well out of his depth.


Juniper Berries

Trainer: Eve Johnson Houghton Jockey: David Probert Age: 2 Weight: 8st 7lbs Draw: 4

Made a winning start and has posted a couple of positive efforts since, notably when fourth in the Queen Mary last time. Unlikely to turn the tables with Relief Rally from that day, but still respected.


Crooked Crown

Trainer: Rod Millman Jockey: Saffie Osborne Age: 2 Weight: 8st 4lbs Draw: 14

Left her debut form well behind when second in maiden at Haydock and showed a little bit of improvement when going one better in similar event at Chepstow. Disappointing on latest outing and this will likely prove too competitive.


Heed The Call

Trainer: Archie Watson Jockey: Harry Davies Age: 2 Weight: 8st 4lbs Draw: 1

Improved for first-time blinkers when doubling tally in a 3-runner event at Hamilton last time but this is likely to prove a bit too much for her.



Trainer: Jack Jones Jockey: Laura Pearson Age: 2 Weight: 8st 3lbs Draw: 17

Off the mark at Leicester in May but didn’t match that form under a penalty at Hamilton since. Likely to be found out in a competitive event like this.
