Bets of the Day: Foundation to end season on a high in Racing Post Trophy
Nick Shiambouros was on the mark when Algometer won at Newbury yesterday. Today Nick has three strong fancies from Newbury and Doncaster...
"He remains an exciting prospect and can take this on his way to bigger and brighter things"
14:25 Newbury - Koora
Koora appears to be the filly to beat in this intriguing race.
I thought she ran very well in the Park Hill at Doncaster when finishing sixth to Gretchen. She held every chance two furlongs from home, but could only stay on at the one pace when the chips were down.
This is an easier contest and the ground should be perfect for this daughter of Pivotal. She is currently trading at [3.85] on the exchange which is more than fair.
Moderah is thrown in at the deep end after bolting up in a Leicester maiden. It would be foolish to underestimate her with the Fanshawe stable going so well. She could find the necessary improvement to take a hand in the finish.
15:35 Newbury - Alamode
Alamode should go close in this interesting Listed event.
This Sir Percy filly finished an excellent second to First Victory in the Oh So Sharp Stakes at HQ earlier this month. She met with some interference two furlongs from home, but finished strongly and was gaining on the winner close home.
I think this likeable individual has more to offer and is generously priced at [3.25] on the exchange.
The favourite Light Music is trading at [2.42]. She won a Leicester maiden by a country mile earlier this month and was most impressive.
She could be anything, but is way short on what she has achieved so far.
15:45 Doncaster - Foundation
I think Foundation will take all the beating in this historic race.
This talented colt kept his unbeaten record intact when beating Deauville in the Royal Lodge at HQ last month. He took the lead a furlong from home and won a shade cosily.
He remains an exciting prospect and can take this on his way to bigger and brighter things. His current price of [2.08] is fair and I have backed him at that price.
The runner-up takes another crack at him today but I cannot see him reversing the form. The application of cheekpieces may help, but I am not convinced.
