2018 Guineas Festival

It’s the Guineas festival at Newmarket this weekend and we have provided our selections for both feature races with our reasoning below. All of our usual daily bets will be posted the evening prior to racing.

To kick us off on the Saturday we have the 2000Guineas and we believe we have found two to follow at decent prices. Firstly, MASAR bolted up in the Craven Stakes which is traditionally a solid trial race coming into this. John Gosden’s Roaring Lion was a warm order that day, but this Godolphin colt hadn’t read the script, rolling along at the front before going on easily, finishing 9lengths clear. It’s hard to not have been impressed by this performance, and with Charlie Appleby believing he has progressed and matured since this outing, 11/2 could be an e/w snip.

Secondly, at a price, we feel that RAID could get involved. He has only had two career starts so there could be plenty more to come and he ran a blinder behind the likes of James Garfield and Expert Eye last time out, finishing never nearer. At 50/1 there are obviously risks attached, but for an unexposed type with such huge potential we believe he is worth a punt.


1000 Guineas

The fillies’ contest the 1000Guineas on Sunday and we again have two e/w fancies. SOLILIOQUY is another from Charlie Appleby’s yard with a fine chance this weekend. She was well backed on seasonal return in the Nell Gwyn Stakes, making most and finishing stylishly, making the extra furlong look a key to further improvement. At 7/1 this is a smart looking e/w bet.

Dan’s Dream would be a fantastic story should it win, but at a price we fancy ALTYN ORDA, who’s form crosses over with our first selection. She ran a fine race chasing home the winner and should stripper fitter for the run. With Frankie booked in nice and early, 16/1 looks a price.
