Three days of racing at HQ Newmarket on the July course begins Thursday with a nice little afternoon meeting getting underway at 2.10. The Kaiser Chiefs are there Friday for the Newmarket Nights if that’s your thing.
Anyway back to the racing and Thursdays card and they face 7f for the Trm Calphormin Handicap at 4.25. Land Of Legends makes his handicap debut for Godolphin and Saeed bin Suroor. His debut defeat when second to King of Comedy looks better and better with the winner having won at Listed level and then coming second in the G.1 St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot last week. The colt was beaten into fifth on his second start, over a mile, but the form of that race isn’t too shabby either with the winner and second having both won since. He got off the mark at the third time of asking at Kempton last time over the seven and might prove a fair bit better ultimately than his opening mark of 91 and he gets weight-for-age here as the only 3yo. 5-2 was about early on Wednesday with Hills and I have that.
