Racing Podcast host Tom Stanley gives a quick recap on what he and the team are backing at the Rowley Mile on Friday!
A big weekend for juveniles ahead and I think the draw is very interesting at Newmarket.
The stalls are in the centre on the straight course and that could mean messy races. We saw a few weeks ago that a rail was a big help and I just wonder if we’ll see splits developing, particularly with front runners heading to one side or another. We shall see!
Cornwallis Stakes (13:50 Newmarket)
I think Oisin will try and dominate up the stands side and that’s the angle for Hierarchy. Both Adele and Steve make a good case for Tardis who was particularly unlucky last time and is of interest dropping to 5 furlongs.
- Tom – Hierarchy
- Sam – Mitbaahy – modest w/pl
- Adele – Guilded/Tardis
- Steve – Tardis
Oh So Sharp (14:25 Newmarket)
Not the strongest opinions here in a tough little race but both Sam and Steve go for Pearl Glory. Adele looks to another Glory whilst I want to give Perfect News another chance back up in grade.
- Tom – Perfect News
- Sam – Pearl Glory
- Adele -Gifted Gold
- Steve – Pearl Glory
Challenge Stakes (15:00 Newmarket)
on his day and I’m surprised he’s not clear favourite. Adele thinks a strongly run 7 furlongs will suit Chindit whilst Steve likes one at a price.
- Tom – Al Suhail
- Sam – Al Suhail
- Adele – Chindit
- Steve – Garrus
Fillies’ Mile (15:35 Newmarket)
Both Sam and Adele want one on side in the without-market and also win and place. Not that anyone is particularly against the favourite Inspiral but she’s not considered betting material at 1.73
- Tom – No bet
- Sam – Concert Hall – w/pl
- Adele – wild Beauty
- Steve – Inspiral
Old Rowley Cup (16:10 Newmarket)
No prizes for bravery in Steve and I putting up Siskany but he’s of massive interest on form and having been gelded. Both Adele and Sam find relative safety in horses at bigger prices.
- Tom – Siskany
- Sam – Moshaawer – w/pl
- Adele – Juan de montalban place
- Steve – Siskany
Friday Best Bets
- Tom – Hierarchy
- Sam – Ravenscraig Castle w/pl (15:50 York)
- Adele – Goodluck Fox York (16:20)
- Steve – Threeunderthrufive (13:35 Chepstow)
