14:00 Thirsk – Run This Way – 1pt @ 16/1*

Run This Way likes deep ground and the only time she got it properly soft last season came on her reappearance over C&D. She won well, doing so despite having stall one and that’s where she’s positioned again. A 6lb lower mark makes her of obvious interest, a couple of recent runs on the All-Weather should liven her up and it’s unlikely that the pace will be too severe in this. Her current well-being is the worry but a return to anything like her form of last year will see her going close.

14:15 Newmarket – Spring Feeling – 1pt @ 10/1

Spring Feeling has only had a couple of months of racing to date, making her debut with a third placed finish in a maiden last June before wrapping up for the season in August with another third, this time in a Group 3. All of her four runs came over an extended 7f or a mile and along with being interested to see how she’ll improve as a 4-year-old, I think the switch to sprinting could work out well.

She showed a nice cruising speed when winning her maiden at Tipperary and then, under a more reserved ride, pulled a bit hard when achieving the black-type. The likely thorough gallop she’ll get in a sprint could be what’s needed to kick her on to the next level so if she’s fit enough and has taken a step forward for the time off, she should be able to mix it with these. 10/1 is worth the risk involved.

 


We've Ranked The Best Betting Apps


14:50 Newmarket – Spirit Of Light – 1pt e/w @ 18/1

Spirit Of Light does not have a great record for one with a triple-figured rating, just 2-30 overall, but a lot of the early part of his career came on an artificial surface and his turf efforts have been far better. 10 of his 19 starts in this code have yielded an RPR of 100 or more and whilst he needs to be near career-best level to win this, he posted one last time when third at this track a couple of weeks ago.

That was over 7f and, not for the first time, he shaped better than the bare form would suggest. Some of that was his own fault as he raced keenly and wandered under pressure, but he also had the drifting winner edge into his lane in the closing stages. He’s definitely in good order anyway and back to 6f with cheekpieces in use, we could see another big run. 18/1 with 6 places is worth an each-way punt.

15:25 Newmarket – Cadillac – 1pt @ 11/1

Cadillac hasn’t enjoyed the dip on either outing at this track but one of them was in the Dewhurst and the other was a Group 3 in which the front two put up very high-level performances. I’m hoping he may have cracked against the opposition more so than hated the track, as if he could act here then he will be a really, really interesting contender running in a handicap for the first time off a mark of 107.

Even on last season’s peak efforts, that could be lenient and the only other worry I’d have is the ground, with his recent best being on good or better. However, he had no issue with soft as a juvenile and hopefully it won’t get that bad. He has been gelded since last seen as well, which could help, and Ryan Moore is booked. If all goes to plan, they should be major players in this company.

16:00 Newmarket – Korker – 1pt @ 25/1

Korker would be a certainty to develop into a Group-class sprinter in my book – and likely a Nunthorpe contender – if he didn’t have a serious aversion to the stalls. It has cost him on multiple occasions, including at Royal Ascot last season, and if he ever managed to sort it out then we’d get to see what he’s truly capable of, which has only happened a few times in his couple of seasons racing.

His York win last May stands out, as he tanked throughout before winning easily, and I also liked his second to Look Out Louis at Haydock in September when conceding a half-stone and a head start. His last run of the year behind Manaccan wasn’t great but he was a bit keen and may have had enough for the season. He’s only 4, should improve further and is one to take a chance on at these prices.
