Recommended Bets

Back Bathos @ 4.216/5 in the 14:35 Newmarket
Lay Happy Call @ 2.01/1 in the 14:55 Pontefract
Back Sanus Per Aquam @ 4.77/2 in the 15:40 Newmarket

We start at Newmarket for the 14:35 1m Nursery where Bathos has been backed to complete his four timer strengthening from 5.49/2 in to 4.216/5. Although he is up in weight and class today Mark Johnston is a master with his staying two-year-olds and Bathos may well have enough improvement to continue his winning roll. Having already won over course and distance and with his ideal good to soft ground we are recommending a Bathos back today.


Over to Pontefract where our lay of the day runs in the 14:55 6f Maiden Stakes. Happy Call has been beaten at odds-on in his last two starts and his market drift from 1.774/5 out to 2.01/1 suggests this could happen again today. Although he was a 110,000GBP two-year-old he has failed to perform to this price tag and seems unable to put his head in front. Cheek pieces are fitted for the first time but are no guarantee to have the desired effect and we are happy to take him on at a short price again today.


Back to Newmarket for the 7f Group 3 Somerville Tattersalls Stakes at 15:40 where Sanus Per Aquam has received steady support this morning from a high of 5.79 in to 4.77/2. Having been given a seven week break after two disappointing runs where he did not perform to the standard of his two winning starts earlier in the summer, he returned to finish third in a Group 3 two weeks ago. Having previously been thought of as a 2,000 Guineas contender Jim Bolger's runner looked refreshed and ready to build on that performance with a big run today.
