Best bet for the horse racing at Newmarket Wednesday 23rd October

The 4.45 at Newmarket this afternoon the one-mile Matchbook EBF Future Stayers Novice Stakes has some nicely bred ones lining-up. The race is well worth a look whether you’re punting in it or not with the notebook close to hand; a few of these are bred to be decent.

The Godolphin owned Charlie Appleby trained Secret Victory blew his chances of victory at the start pretty much on his racecourse debut at Chelmsford just over a fortnight ago. Plenty of stamina in the pedigree, by Dubawi out of Hidden Gold (Shamardal) he might be one more for next season but at 11-2 I have taken a chance he can win this before a possible All-Weather campaign; his dam won a Listed heat at Lingfield and was third in the A/W Marathon of 2015.

Be lucky
