Nick Shiambouros returns with two fancies from Newmarket and Newbury...
"We have not seen the best of her, and looks super Each-Way value at 10.519/2 on the exchange"
Back Blue Gardinia Each-Way in the 14:40 at Newmarket
Blue to upset
14:40 Newmarket - Blue Gardenia
Blue Gardenia could run well at a decent price in this Group 3 event.
This filly finished fifth to Nausha in the Musidora at York in the spring. She kept on really well in the closing stages, and was not beaten all that far. She took her chance in the Oaks , and finished down the field behind Anapurna. I think she will appreciate the ease in grade, and any overnight rain would be a bonus. We have not seen the best of her, and looks super Each-Way value at 10.519/2 on the exchange.
Sparkle Roll heads the market at 2.962/1 on the exchange. She finished third to Star Catcher in the Ribblesdale at Ascot, and sets a fair standard based on that effort. Her price is a little short in my opinion, as there are a few in here with chances.
Ventura my banker
15:40 Newbury - Ventura Rebel
I cannot let Ventura Rebel go unbacked in this sales race.
This colt finished an excellent second to A'Ali in the Norfolk at Ascot last month. He put in a strong run inside the final furlong, and was gaining on the winner close home. This was a fantastic effort by this likeable individual and further improvement is likely. He is the clear form pick and will handle the underfoot conditions. I think he will be difficult to beat, and is reasonably priced at 2.466/4 on the exchange.
Never In Paris beat Exclusively in good style on debut at Nottingham. This No Nay Never filly is open to a fair bit of improvement, but will have to be pretty special to trouble the favourite. At present she is trading at 7.87/1 on the exchange.
