14:50 Newbury – Charming Whisper – 1pt @ 15/2

Charming Whisper hasn’t really progressed as of yet but has proved consistent in the main since winning a nice pot in a restricted novice at Yarmouth second time up last season. It wasn’t the best race in the world but six of the others have won something since.

He remains unexposed at a mile and whilst his comeback run at Nottingham, when behind Asimov, wasn’t great, it’s highly unlikely that he was fully wound up for that first start in 209 days. He was ridden quietly and the speed held up, as it often does around there.

We should get to see where he’s truly at now and Rossa Ryan is booked for the first time. I hope that may eke out a bit more and it looks like a race in which he should be able to compete properly. None of them seem to have much in hand and I have a feeling the favourite wants further.

16:30 Newbury – Be Frank – 1pt @ 11/2

I’m still not totally convinced Be Frank is at his best over 7f following his Goodwood run when third behind Wild Tiger, but I also massively underrated the winner pre-race and time may prove that running well against him was a big effort. Taking on lesser talents, he could do better.

He shaped well over this trip on his seasonal return at Newmarket, just looking a shade short when it came to his fitness, and those two runs in May should have him spot on. Getting onto a straight course again may prove favourable and his speed will be an asset this time. 

Quicker ground will do no harm and I’m certain that he’s a well-handicapped performer off 83. What needs to happen in order for him to show it remains up for debate but this looks like a good race for him and I’ll have one more go at it being the case that he gets 7f.

17:05 Newbury – Crazy Luck – 1pt @ 12/1

Crazy Luck has raced on good ground over this C&D on two occasions and won both times. Her only below-par run here came on heavy on last season’s reappearance and I wouldn’t be surprised to see her getting back to form following a run at Windsor that didn’t really go to plan.

She made her effort from a similar position to the winner but I’m not sure that she wants to be ridden so far back in the field these days. Indeed, she made all of the running on her penultimate start when scoring at Nottingham and seemed to relish heading the field.

It’s possible she could get to the front again and Rossa Ryan taking over from an apprentice is a definite help. There’s work to do to overturn the Windsor form with a few of these but she’s better than that, and may be able to prove it at this track under a more aggressive ride.
