Just four rides for Ryan Moore on the second day of the July Festival at Newmarket, but all four have strong claims and here the Betfair Ambassador talks exclusively about each...


15:35 - Roly Poly

"This is a good shot at her Group 1 after chasing home Winter at the Curragh and at Ascot, and I thought she stuck to her task really well in the Coronation Stakes last time after matching strides with Precieuse."

13:50 - Makzeem

He was a bit disappointing when I rode him for the first time at Sandown in May but he was a different proposition when winning over course and distance for me a fortnight ago. He carries a 6lb penalty here, which actually means he is 3lb badly in as he only went up 3lb for that victory, but obviously he comes here in good form, proven at the track and he is a relatively lightly-raced 4yo.


14:25 - Clemmie

A full sister to Churchill, I have ridden her in all three of her starts and she has progressed in each. She ran well on the far side in the Albany and she came forward again when winning a Group 3 in convincing style at the Curragh last time. I was impressed by her there, and she looks a typical Aidan improver for whom you have to give a leading chance.

That said, Nyaleti ran well for a long way before September overhauled her in the Chesham last time and she is a speedy filly who you would expect to be suited by stepping down a furlong. The Queen Mary form is represented here, too, and you have to think that the third, Out Of The Flames, bumped into two very good fillies there.


15:00 - Titi Makfi

Her chance is obvious and I can't really add anything to what you can see. She may have gone up 23lb for her four wins this season but it looks as though she has deserved to, and she proved that she stayed this trip when winning at Chester. It's just a matter of whether the handicapper has caught up with her now, and she is stepping up in class to contest this 0-105, too.


15:35 - Roly Poly

This race clearly lacks a stand-out, but my filly probably has as good a chance as any. This is a good shot at her Group 1 after chasing home Winter at the Curragh and at Ascot, and I thought she stuck to her task really well in the Coronation Stakes last time after matching strides with Precieuse.

You have to respect the Boussac winner Wuheida on her return, and French 1,000 Guineas runner-up Sea Of Grace - and Arabian Hope is clearly progressing well, too - but I think my filly has a favourite's chance.
