Best bet for the horse racing at Newbury Friday 20th September 2019
There are a couple of Listed heats at Ayr but both are real headache-inducing 5f sprints that you can make a case for half the field in!
Over at Newbury, we have the 7f Listed Dubai Duty Free Cup Stakes at 3.55 to take a look at. Tabarrak is clear on official ratings and his couple of second-place finishes in handicap recently are fair bits of form as he was giving away chunks of weight in both. He is a four-time Listed winner and two from two over this track and trip, having won this in 2017 and a Maiden as a two-year-old. Good-firm going is fine and breaking from stall three he should be able to slipstream likely leader Salute The Soldier, who just held him off in those two handicaps mentioned above, but he doesn’t have to give the four-year-old over half-a-stone today! The old Satchel-swingers aren’t taking any chances and I have begrudgingly taken a bit of the 11-10.
