Nick Shiambouros struck again yesterday when his best bet Forest Ranger won at BSP 10:39. Nick hopes to end his current stint in the tipping chair with two winners from HQ...
"This George Strawbridge homebred is improving with racing, and should win races as a three-year-old"
Back Ocala in the 16:10 at Newmarket
15:00 Newmarket - Le Brivido
Le Brivido should make his presence felt in this historic sprint.
This lightly raced colt won the Jersey Stakes at Ascot last year. He ran on really well inside the final furlong, and collared Spirit Of Valor close home. His only defeat came at the hands of Bramelot in the French 2,000 Guineas at Deauville. I think sprinting could be his game, and should prove difficult to beat. At present he is trading at 3.65 on the exchange.
Brando won this race last year and is the obvious danger. He is a Group 1 winning sprinter and brings a high level of form to the table. At present he is trading at 4.3100/30 on the exchange.
16:10 Newmarket - Ocala
Ocala should run well at a decent price in this interesting maiden.
This well related filly finished third to George Villiers at Kempton last November. She put in some good work in the closing stages, but could not get to grips with the game winner. This George Strawbridge homebred is improving with racing, and should win races as a three-year-old. She is attractively priced at 9.417/2 on the exchange.
Sheikha Reika is the favourite at 2.8615/8. Her second to Soliloquy on debut reads well in the context of this race, but was turned over at short odds on her next two starts. She is bound to attract plenty of support, and is the main danger to the selection.
