Horse Racing Preview – Newmarket -11th August 2017

Horse Racing Preview - Newmarket - 3rd November 2017

Today’s horse racing preview comes from one meeting, with selections coming from Newmarket.


19.35 Newmarket – Fly London Southend Airport To Budapest EBF Stallions Fillies Handicap (8f) (0-95)

Without sounding condescending in anyway, anyone of these could win this race, but the Karl Burke entry here Seduce Me probably looks the least exposed off the back of her two wins at Newbury and Epsom. With a 8lb rise at the weights, I would not be surprised if the yard have had to take this hike up in class purely as there is nothing out there, if the quick turnaround will not inconvenience her she should be going close again on this ground she thrives on.

Mark Johnston runs Titi Makfi who is another filly by the well-known soft ground sire Makfi, the handicapper has looked to have caught up with her looking the way her last two runs have panned out, but she has to have claims here dropping in class after her fine run in a 0-105 at Goodwood when behind Richard Hannon’s Billsden Bess, however my concern is the distance, she has not contested the dead 8f in her career yet, the way she is renown for coming off the pace she could be found wanting, looks on the sharp side for her.

Prying Pandora could be the dark horse in this, the Dark Angel filly won well on the all-weather at Newcastle back in May in this company, the third Lincoln Rocks has gone on to land a Listed race since with also good runs in higher company. The runner up has also won last month at Redcar, but in a much weaker event. But the least exposed at the trip and conditions, I am going to give the nod to the Karl Burke entry here Seduce Me to notch up her third win in succession under her pilot Jim Crowley.

SEDUCE ME : 2pt Win @ SP (BOG)


20.10 Newmarket – Fly London Southend Airport To Venice Handicap (6f) (0-95)

Again, you can give hope to most of these landing this race, but the fact that John Gallagher’s charge Major Pusey turns up after just four days when running a credible second in this company when behind Ice Age at Windsor would give him a slight chance again. He ran well here at the back-end of July when runner up over 5f, however he has failed miserably to land a Class 3 race, in fact he is at present 0-8 around that sphere, but getting weight all round here he is not going to get a better chance of recording a career best win.

One of interest here is John Quinn’s Reputation, he does not look the most straight forward, even so he has been keeping reasonable company around the 105 marks. Coming down at the weights gradually and does have a 0-100 win to his name this year. As the ground goes the jury is out, as he has run poorly on this surface in the past, however would not have to step up too much to win a race of this nature.
