Nick Shiambouros returns with two more selections from the meetings at Newbury and Doncaster...
"I do not think we have seen the best of her, and I am expecting a big run"
14:15 Newbury - Mountain Bell
I am going to take a chance with Mountain Bell in this fascinating contest.
This filly was last seen on a racecourse when finishing second in this race last year. She delivered a strong challenge inside the final furlong, and was only just denied by the winner close home. This lightly raced individual has had a few setbacks, but comes in to the race a fresh horse. She won on her seasonal reappearance last year and should be ready to do herself justice. I do not think we have seen the best of her, and I am expecting a big run. At present she is trading at 8.27/1 on the exchange which is just about right.
Raheen House did me a massive favour last time out when promoted to first place at Ascot. He is developing in to a decent stayer, and although this trip appears to be on the sharp side he will be running on at the finish. He looks saver material at around 8.07/1 on the exchange.
15:25 Doncaster - Saxon Warrior
Saxon Warrior is taken to win this historic race.
This Deep Impact colt is unbeaten in two starts and was most impressive when beating stablemate Delano Roosevelt in the Beresford at Naas last month. He took the lead a furlong from home and pulled clear to win with complete authority. His Dam won a Group 1 as a two-year-old which is an added bonus. Needless to say he is a massive improver, and should prove difficult to beat. At present he is trading at 2.526/4 on the exchange.
Verbal Dexterity turned the tables on the progressive Beckford when winning the National Stakes at the Curragh last month. He is another big improver, and should relish the extra yardage. He is the main danger and is the solid second choice at 5.24/1 on the exchange.
