Timeform on Aramaic

Timeform highlight a Nap, Next Best and Each-Way bet at Newbury on Saturday...


Aramaic - 15:25 Newbury

Aramaic looked a colt really going places when scoring readily on handicap debut at York earlier this month. He appeared to have been let in lightly by the handicapper and he duly proved that to be the case, quickly going clear entering the final furlong and just kept up to his work in the closing stages. He may get a stronger pace to aim at here, which will bring about even more improvement, and he is strongly fancied to complete a hat-trick before having his sights raised further.


Dubai Poet - 13:10 Newbury

Dubai Poet was an expensive yearling and offered plenty to work on when finishing fourth in a maiden over course and distance last month and that race is beginning to work out. He seems sure to do better now with that experience under his belt and, provided none of the newcomers are above average, he should take all the beating.


Paxos - 13:40 Newbury

Paxos won back-to-back handicaps on the all-weather earlier this year, including a success over course and distance, and he is best not judged too harshly on his run at Windsor last month where he was caught out wide throughout. As a result, he was also stuck out on the wing in the straight which did him no favours, and that was his first start for 10 weeks, so he is entitled to strip fitter. He remains on a fair mark and will be hard to keep out of the places.
