12th July – Newmarket

Rossdales British EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes (3) 7f

Analyst’s Verdict

A high-quality maiden in all probability, featuring a number of interesting newcomers, none more so than Light Blush, a Kodiac filly who cost 435,000 gns as a yearling. Award Scheme and Baaqy are other newcomers to note.

bet365 Mile Handicap (2) 1m

Analyst’s Verdict

Honest Albert accounted for Bayroot when making it 2-2 at Nottingham last month and is taken to confirm his superiority over that rival and stretch his unbeaten record to 3. Motakhayyel has quickly developed into a very useful performer and could be the one to give John Gosden’s charge most to do.

bet365 Superlative Stakes (Group 2) (1) 7f

Analyst’s Verdict

King’s Command is following the same route as last year’s winner Quorto (for same connections), and shaped as though crying out for this step up to 7f here last time. There should be any amount of improvement in him now, and he is narrowly preferred to Juan Elcano, who is open to significant progress given the manner of his debut win at Haydock. Shared Belief is another interesting contender.

bet365 Bunbury Cup (Heritage Handicap) (2) 7f

Analyst’s Verdict

Solar Gold looked unlucky not to go very close (finished well after meeting trouble) when third in an AW listed event last time and could be well treated from a mark in the mid-90s. Kynren has an excellent record in these big-field events and is likely to give another good account. Crossing The Line, who was in front of the selection at Chelmsford, and Spanish City are also shortlisted.

Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa British EBF Fillies’ Handicap (2) 7f

Analyst’s Verdict

I Am Magical hasn’t been seen to best effect since her impressive handicap debut win on the Rowley Course in May and remains one to be positive about off her current mark. Dupioni and California Love both shaped well on their belated comebacks 3 weeks ago and they head the dangers.

Darley July Cup Stakes (Group 1) (1) 6f

Analyst’s Verdict

Three-year-olds have won 3 of the last 4 renewals and Advertise holds strong claims of further enhancing that record. He proved better than ever in blinkers at Royal Ascot 3 weeks ago, putting his below-par return in the 2000 Guineas well behind him, and has already proved his liking for this track when winning the July Stakes over C&D 12 months ago. Dream of Dreams and Brando are feared most.

Maritime Cargo Handicap (3) 1½m

Analyst’s Verdict

An opening mark in the low-80s could underestimate Dubai Tradition and he’s preferred to Apparate, whose latest Salisbury third appeals as strong form. Hareeq’s latest Ayr fourth came in a competitive race and he may prove best of the rest.
