14:30 Newbury - Promising


I am going to take a chance with the maiden Promising in this good looking contest.

This Invincible Spirit filly put in a much improved effort when finishing third to Kilmah in the Prestige at Goodwood last August. She delivered a strong challenge inside the final furlong, and was only just denied. The pair finished clear of the third place finisher. I think she has a lot more to offer, and is attractively priced at 10.519/2 on the exchange.

Dabyah is the short priced favourite at 2.3411/8. She finished third in the Marcel Boussac at Chantilly last October which reads well in the context of this race. The Gosden stable is firing on all cylinders and it is no surprise to see her trading this short.

Queen Kindly merits consideration. She won the Lowther in great style, but is not certain to stay.


15:05 Newbury - Barney Roy


Barney Roy can give the Hannon team another winner in this intriguing race.

This colt won a Haydock maiden in great style from Fujaira Bridge last September. He swept to the front inside the final furlong, and powered home to win with any amount in hand. Godolphin subsequently purchased this exciting prospect and has thrown him in at the deep end. I think he is up to the task, and is fairly priced at 4.67/2 on the exchange.

Aiden O' Brien send out War Secretary. This well related colt won a Listed race at Dundalk earlier this month, but has a bit to find with some of these. He looks short enough at 5.39/2.
