Newmarket Racing Tips: Migration can resume winning ways

Timeform's Andrew Asquith picks out three bets at Newmarket

"...still lightly raced for his age, he remains a horse to be positive about..."

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap, Next Best and Each-Way selection at Newmarket on Saturday.


Migration - 16:33 Newmarket

Migration won a couple of competitive handicaps last season and shaped well on his return from a short break in the Balmoral Handicap at Ascot a couple of weeks ago. He had pushed a Group horse close when runner-up in the Spring Mile at Newbury earlier in the year, and would have likely finished closer at Ascot with a clearer run, while he also left the impression he is ready for a return to this longer trip. There are no ground concerns with Migration and he looks very interesting back in listed company, sure to strip fitter for a recent spin and, still lightly raced for his age, he remains a horse to be positive about.


Queen Fleur - 15:58 Newmarket

Queen Fleur is from a good family and she looked a good prospect when forcing a dead heat with the reopposing Chelsea Green when making a winning debut over seven furlongs at Sandown. She shaped like much the best filly in the race that day, her inexperience in the closing stages arguably costing her victory outright, not doing a whole lot once hitting the front inside the final furlong and allowing Chelsea Green to join her on the line. There should be any amount of improvement in her now and she will also relish this step up to a mile.


King of Conquest - 15:23 Newmarket

King of Conquest cost 900,000 guineas as a yearling and was strong in the betting when making a winning debut at Sandown last year. He failed to progress as expected when beaten under a penalty at Newmarket on his next start and didn't really pull up any trees at Meydan earlier this year. However, he has subsequently been gelded, and based on his debut effort he is potentially well treated now making his handicap debut. Charlie Appleby has an excellent record at Newmarket and he may be worth chancing to make a winning return with fitness unlikely to be an issue.
