Horse Racing Tips: Newbury pair Jack and Hughie feature for Friday multiple

Some potential Classic horses are on show today at Newbury

Alan Dudman is looking at Newbury today and goes in search of a 44/1 Sportsbook double...

Mistral to star, or at least hit the place money

Back Mistral Star @ 6/1 in the 14:40 at Newbury

Newmarket certainly provided future Classic horses over the three days, although for me, it also served up a touch too many seconds.

Friday's Flat action at Newbury certainly gives a glimpse to the future too and some exceptionally bred fillies take part in the 14:40.

Shining Jewel heads the betting at 15/8 for Charlie Appleby, but the price doesn't do anything for me, and while I was tempted to throw in the Amo man's horse Maman Joon, a 400,000 daughter of Sea The Stars, I tend to avoid Richard Hannon's horses as I just cannot read the yard.

It leaves me with a play on Mistral Star, another with a good pedigree and an Oaks entry, but also one with a run under her belt from last season. And I don't mind her trainer Hughie Morrison at all.

Mistral Star started out at Lingfield over 1m last November, a track that certainly didn't dent her ability to travel well. She was sent off 10.41 BSP and Morrison wouldn't have a lot of 2yo first time out winners. But she travelled so well in defeat and hit 1.5 in-play behind a Godolphin filly with experience.

She looked green under pressure and has a pedigree for middle-distances, so the step up to 1m2f is another rung on her pathway to suit.

Her dam Shirocco Star was second in the Oaks and trained by Morrison, but also won on her second start. She has some very talented relations and Shirocco Star has turned out to be an exceptional broodmare.

Her price at 6/1 is good enough for an each-way play.

Triac to handle the going

Back Tiriac @ 9/2 in the 16:25 at Newbury

The 13/2 this morning had gone on Jack Channon's Triac, but the 9/2 is just about okay for the second part of the bet, and the positive move for Triac will mostly be down to the fact he'll handle the soft ground.

He was seen winning at Doncaster in heavy conditions and outstayed his field easily to win by 5L - showing some pace over 6f considering his sire is Sixties Icon.

The 3yo had previously finished second to a 105-rated horse at Newmarket, albeit in a three-runner race, but the angle of stepping up to 7f with his ability to handle testing ground and heavy marks him down as a player in this.

His handicap debut mark of 83 is fair on his wide margin win, and that was a personal best. He's related to Nastase, who won the Rockingham Stakes and it could be time for Jack to unleash the windmill celebration like his old man.

As there haven't been any for Southampton fans this term.
