Nick Shiambouros returns to the tipping chair with two selections from the outstanding card at Newmarket...
"I think this likeable filly has a lot more to offer, and should find this company more to her liking"
Wejdan the choice
14:25 Newmarket - Wejdan
Wejdan is my idea of the winner of this fascinating contest.
This Dabirsim filly was not disgraced behind Living In The Past in the Lowther at York in August. She made good progress a furlong from home, and finished strongly without threatening the judge. She was not beaten all that far, and should relish the extra yardage. I think this likeable filly has a lot more to offer, and should find this company more to her liking. She is attractively priced at [6.4] on the exchange.
Final Song is the obvious danger. She has finished behind the smart Raffle Prize the last twice and is another that will benefit from the ease in grade. I am not certain the seven furlong trip will suit her and is a little short at [3.25] on the exchange.
Pepper too hot to handle
15:35 Newmarket - Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne Pepper should prove difficult to beat in this mouthwatering Group 1.
Jessica Harrington has a good looking crop of two-year-olds-this season and this unbeaten filly is one of them. Last time out at the Curragh she beat So Wonderful in great style to record her third straight win. She made all the running, and found plenty in the closing stages to score easily. We definitely have not seen the best of her, and can record her first Group 1 win in this historic race. At present she is trading at [4.0] on the exchange.
Another unbeaten filly Quadrilateral heads the market at [3.2] on the exchange. She was most impressive when thrashing Kalsara in a Conditions race at Newbury last month. The water is much deeper here, but has a beautiful pedigree and is open to significant improvement. She could be anything, but is priced accordingly at [3.25] on the exchange.
