1.50pm Newbury - Rabaah (Each Way)
This race revolves around last year’s Gimcrack winner Noble Style, who is the clear pick on ratings and should benefit from dropping down in trip after shaping like a non-stayer in the 2000 Guineas on seasonal reappearance.
Dropping back down to 6f should suit him perfectly, but at a juicy price, I am fascinated that Charlie Hills lets the 90-rated RABAAH (EW) take his chance in this company. Connections could have easily found a Handicap for him off that mark, yet they want to have a crack at this LIsted assignment.
Rabaah arrives here on the back of two facile wins in minor company on the all-weather, and gets thrown into deeper waters here. He looks very exciting though and has displayed a good turn of foot. If Noble Style fails to spark, then Rabaah can be the one to pounce for a minor upset. With a around a 30% strike-rate in May, Charlie Hills has his string in fine fettle at present.
2.25pm Newbury - Old Harrovian (Each Way)
Andrew Balding and Oisin Murphy can do little wrong at present, and the unexposed OLD HARROVIAN (EW) looks worth a crack at this level after a couple of demolition jobs on the all-weather.
The 4-year-old won in a 10-length romp at Wolverhampton last time out, and rates an exciting prospect heading into this tough encounter. It is a sign of how highly he is regarded that he is now dipping his toe into Group 3 company, and despite having a fair bit to find on ratings, he looks more than worthy of his place in the line-up, and can make a real impact here.
3.50pm Newmarket - Air To Air (Each Way)
David Probert and George Boughey team up for the 5-year-old AIR TO AIR (EW) who looks an each-way play here. The tongue-tie goes on for the first time, and this son of Toronado is a previous C&D winner.
He is versatile in regards to underfoot requirements so all ground comes alike to him. It is worth noting that he has a good record fresh, so the 138-day absence could have done him the world of good and off a mark of 94 he is more than capable of getting involved at the business end of proceedings.
4.45pm Newbury - Polly Pott (Each Way)
POLLY POTT (EW) showed some sparkling form as a 2-year-old, winning the May Hill as a 40/1 poke, but it was all ‘bit too much’ when tackling the 1000 Guineas first time out this season on her first start for the Ben Pauling team. However, she has a great chance to bounce back in this assignment now that she is dropped into calmer waters.
The really sticky ground probably didn’t help her when she was down the field at Newmarket, and she should have also stripped a lot fitter for that outing. Settling into her new surroundings in the Cotswolds, Pauling always suggested that she would improve with better ground and stepping up in distance.
Going up to 10f for the first time could easily unlock more improvement and she looks the value play here. Oisin Murphy comes in for the ride and she has solid each-way claims.
