Having left the short-priced ones alone Wednesday afternoon, glad I did as two were beaten into second, it means still just one bet so far this week, 9-2 winner Western Writer at Chelmsford City on Tuesday evening. There is a bit more to get our teeth into on Thursday.
Best bets for the horse racing at Newbury
One I talked of to keep an eye on when making his debut at Newbury last month Mysterious Night is back at the track and goes in the 2.10 6½f Watch RacingTV With Free Trial Now Novice Stakes. Just failing to get up on debut over half-a-furlong shorter he looks to have every chance of getting off the mark in this with that experience under his belt. Annoyingly he is odds-on though and won’t be backed.
Another I mentioned without backing her on her debut as the race looked like one to watch with some lovely fillies making debut was Light Of Peace. The daughter of Dubawi out of Group winner Majestic Queen was third at HQ back in April over 1m2f with the second that day, another making their debut Elegant Verse, winning next time out to frank the form. She drops to a mile for the racingtv.com/freetrial British EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes at 2.40 and getting weight from the main danger Whitebeam, that filly won over seven here last month, the Charlie Appleby trained filly is fancied at 5-2 and again I am on overnight.
The 1m2f Listed Greatwood British EBF Stakes at 3.10 looks a decent race with some potentially very good fillies lining-up. The one Light Of Peace finished directly behind on debut Elegant Verse goes in this so hopefully that form will have been given a boost half-an-hour before. Stay Alert and Golden Lyra both have form lines with Oaks third Nashwa hence they are shorter in the market but I think the Juddmonte filly is worth a punt to improve passed then both and take this, I have the 8-1 overnight Power were early. As I mentioned previously on this site she is by Galileo and out of Special Duty the mare that won the 1,000 Guineas and Poule d'Essai des Pouliches in her career somewhat unbelievably being awarded both races in the Stewards room after photo finishes!
