Today's Racing News: Monday money moves and a look ahead to Newmarket's July Cup

The 19:20 at Wolverhampton is today's race of the day.

It's a brand new week of opportunity, and Daryl Carter is on hand to guide you through Monday's action, highlight some market movers, look ahead to the next big meeting, and give you five to take from Ascot.

"Crowley was not at his best last week, but this horse wants a drop back to 6f and could be a real force in the three-year-old group races this term."

Monday may not have the je ne sais quoi of Royal Ascot. However, meetings from Southwell, Newton Abbot, Chepstow, Ballinrobe and Wolverhampton allow the opportunity to find that diamond in the rough.

Windsor has been ABANDONED.

Monday Money Talk

Farewell Ascot, hello Newmarket July Festival

Newmarket July Festival action 1280.jpg

Wow, what an outstanding week of Royal action, but no time to dwell as punters must now turn their attention to the next big meeting - Newmarket's July Festival.

The three-day meeting commences on July 8th with an abundance of top-class racing at Newmarket's beautiful second course.

The blue ribbon event is the Group One Darley July Cup over six furlongs won last year by recent Kings Stand winner Oxted.

Oxted 9/2 currently heads the market along with Diamond Jubilee late withdrawal Starman 9/2, who will be sure to get his favoured firm ground, followed closely by the winner Dream Of Dreams 5/1.

Three-year-old's have won five of the last ten, and should those recent Royal Ascot winners turn up here - we're in for one hell of a treat!

Commonwealth Cup one-two Campanelle 6/1 and Dragon Symbol 6/1 are hard to split in the market as suspected.

Royal Ascot Jersey Stakes winner Creative Force 8/1 along with Coronation Stakes winner Alcohol Free 14/1 could both drop back in trip for the contest (although the latter is perhaps less likely).

It looks like an absolute screamer!!!

On to today's racing.

Race of the day

With Windsor abandoned, we head to Wolverhampton for their 19:20 5f EBC Group Handicap in which the market looks wide open so there may be an opportunity to find some value.

Cuban Breeze has built up a solid profile without looking progressive, and as a result, she is now eight pounds lower than when starting the season.

A return to this venue in which she scored off this handicap mark of 71 over six furlongs is a positive, but the draw in stall nine counter-acts that given she likes to be on the sharp end of the pace.

There is a danger that she could shoot her bolt too early, and the likelihood is that she will be forced wide around the turn and forfeit ground, so she can be opposed at the head of the market.

There is a good chance that Atiyah has more to come after a near-miss at Ripon last time, and she has built up a good record in three runs here at Wolverhampton, including when scoring in a Novice event last term.

She has the blinkers on for which her form figures read two, two, and it's likely she has found the good to firm ground on turf too quick.

She has a big chance off this mark of 68 on the balance of her form if given a positive ride.

We haven't seen the best of Roman Encounter since her debut win at Beverley, and connections have opted for wind surgery since her disappointment at York last time.

Trainer Kevin Ryan also enlists a talented seven-pound-claimer which makes her look very attractive at double-figure odds given the form of her sole victory, which ties in with the top of the market.

She could spring a surprise and the one I will side with.

Jumps action your forte? Rhys Williams has you covered

Cash in next time - Royal Ascot

Coronation Stakes 1280x720.jpg

A reflection piece is never popular given the event has been and gone, but it's worth highlighting a few horses to take out of last weeks Royal meeting in a snappy fashion.

Movin Time - The market support was significant, and although he could only manage fifth in the Hampton Court Stakes, jockey Andrea Atzeni gave him a horrid ride and battled for the pace throughout. That effort can be upgraded and will be seen to better effect under a more patient ride.

Nagano - He was sliced up like baloney and never really had the chance to get going. He takes a moment or two to wind up, and he has more to offer off this handicap mark of 94.

Aldaary - Crowley was not at his best last week, but this horse wants a drop back to 6f and could be a real force in the three-year-old group races this term.

Snow Lantern - Looks the real deal and, with a clear run, would have won the Coronation Stakes.

Samoot - Heavily backed in the Sandringham and is miles ahead of her mark on that evidence, interesting to see what the handicapper does.

Creative Force - Could follow in the footsteps of stablemate Space Blues and clean up everything in front of him this term, especially given the ground and track position was against him when winning the Jersey Stakes.

Final Word

I know, I know, it's hard to muster the enthusiasm for Monday racing after the spectacular Royal Ascot meeting last week, especially if it was a profitable one (for once it was).

However, there is always something to get you excited if you look hard enough, and the weeks racing does pick up as we go through the week, so keep that focus.

If it's not for you today, get a head start on everyone else with the July meeting - it's going to be a belter.

It feels like we played hard last week, but now we must work even harder.

Until tomorrow, be lucky.
