Today’s horse racing preview selections come from this evening’s meeting at Newcastle.
20.15 Newcastle – Sun Bets On The App Store Classified Claiming Stakes (8.1f)
Alan Whillian’s Henpecked drops back to 8f for the first time on the all weather in her career, she has been placed on six occasions on the all weather circuit which have all come at either 10f or 12f. Her turf form also has been over longer trips, she is an interesting one in the race especially getting the services of Joe Fanning.
Intermodel won over a mile at Kempton last December when landing her maiden by a nose when trained by Amanda Perratt, that maiden has produced winners around both codes. She had a year off and came back when she looked like in need of the run when only managing fifth at Kempton when stepped up to 10f, With a run behind her on the all weather at Chelmsford she finished behind one of her adversaries here in Makaakib, she was conceding 4lb and will get a 6lb turnaround and a 2lb pull this time around, she should be a lot closer.
Interesting irish contender here in Midnitemudcrabs who has been a regular to Dundalk this season. Her last three runs have come in this company with one of those coming when winning off 73, she has been holding that form ever since and makes her only second visit to the UK this evening, her other run came on turf at Musselburgh when third to Set in Stone on soft ground.
I just cannot stand positive enough on Henpecked despite her tackling 8f for the first time in her career, Intermodel has also showed a reasonable level of form, but the tentative vote goes to the consistent claimer Midnitemudcrabs who sets a good standard.
MIDNITEMUDCRABS : 2pt Win @ 7/2 (BOG)
20.45 Newcastle – Bet & Watch At Sunbets.co.uk Maiden Stakes (8.1f)
I do not usually tend to get involved in maidens, however two at the bottom of the card here from two top stables make serious appeal. John Gosden tends to hold back a few nice three year old’s to go into the next season and saddles Middle Creek here. She is the daughter of Poets Voice and well related to some nice milers in her pedigree.
Roger Charlton’s Ambrosia is another filly progeny of the mighty Frankel, She has had trouble finding the winning enclosure hitting the bar on three occasions which included a second off 73 at Kempton over today’s trip. I am not a fan of seeing Frankel horses diverting to the all weather and this time around she is looking exposed.
On to the selection, Godolphin’s three year old’s on the all weather have a positive return, Valley of Light is a filly by Dubawi, she has failed on two occasions on the all weather to make an impact over 10f, dropping her back to 8f looks the right way to go. She does have something to prove here and hopefully the first time visor can do the trick.
VALLEY OF LIGHT : 2pt Win @ 3/1 (BOG)
