Bets Of The Day: Lenya ready on debut

Newmarket Lenya
Today's best bet Lenya runs at Newmarket

"She represents high profile connections, and the stable is going great guns"

Back Lenya in the 19:20 at Newmarket

Nick Shiambouros returns to the tipping chair with two selections from Newbury and Newmarket...

Al Aakif to win again

15:40 Newbury - Al Aakif

Al Aakif is my idea of the winner of the fascinating Listed contest.

This Acclamation colt beat Clareyblue in good style at York last month. He delivered a strong challenge inside the final furlong and kept on strongly to score. I thought that was a super effort considering he was carrying a penalty for his previous success at Nottingham. I think he has a lot more to offer and is fairly priced at 3.814/5 on the exchange.

Repartee is the favourite at 2.747/4 on the exchange. He made all to beat Forbidden Land by a wide margin at York in May, and is the big improver in the race. He is the obvious danger.

Lenya for Frankie

19:20 Newmarket - Lenya

Lenya should be ready to do herself justice at first asking.

This Dark Angel filly comes from a very good family, and is a half-sister to the talented Mudallel who was a four time winner. There is enough speed in her pedigree to suggest the mile distance should be right up her street. She represents high profile connections, and the stable is going great guns. At present she is trading at 5.49/2 on the exchange.

Whispering Beauty heads the market at 2.747/4 on the exchange. She finished an excellent second to Fabulist on debut, and has every right to improve. She comes from another in form stable and must be respected. At present she is trading at 2.747/4 on the exchange.
