"He is a talented individual and is unlucky not to have won a race"

Back Rhythmic Intent in the 19:05 at Newbury

Nick Shiambouros hopes to end his current stint in the tipping chair with a couple of winners from Sandown and Newbury...

Light to shine

14:15 Sandown - Light Blush

Light Blush should go close in this interesting Listed contest.

This Kodiac filly beat Craylands on debut at HQ earlier this month. She took the lead inside the final furlong, and was well on top at the finish. Her Dam Marsh Daily was Listed class, and there are plenty of winners in the family. I was impressed with her attitude, and believe she is open to significant improvement. At present she is trading at 3.39/4 on the exchange.

Walk In Marrakesh has won two races in great front running style. She will likely make the running again, but this is a much tougher assignment. At present she is trading at 3.45 but could trade shorter near the off.

Rhythmic to cruise

19:05 Newbury - Rhythmic Intent

Rhythmic Intent deserves a change of luck in this competitive handicap.

This colt had a brutal trip when finishing last behind Match Maker over this course earlier this month. He was hampered several times and was rightly eased when all chance had gone. He is best judged on his narrow defeat behind Ragnar at Sandown last month. Another stride and he would have prevailed and was only beaten a nose. He is a talented individual and is unlucky not to have won a race. At present he is trading at 3.711/4 on the exchange.

Willie Haggas sends out favourite Incredulous who is trading at 2.962/1 on the exchange. She won a Wolverhampton novice stakes earlier this month, but does not look particularly well handicapped.
