Another nice event on the Newmarket card is the Cesarewitch Handicap over a marathon trip and this season we are siding with the Willie Mullins trained Burning Victory.
The master Irish jumps trainer has a superb record in this race taking out the last three renewals and we find it hard to look past one of his horses again this term.
The five year old mare Burning Victory was a smart horse on the flat in France before joining Mullins back in 2019 and she was then sent over hurdles.
Making her hurdles debut in February 2020, she landed a Grade Three Juvenile hurdle at the first time of asking and off the back of that went to the Cheltenham festival and took the Grade One Juvenile Hurdle after a last flight fall from Goshen handed her the race.
Off the back of that she was not seen for over a year through injury but returned at the Punchestown festival in May this year when being thrown into the Grade One Mares Champion Hurdle and she was totally overwhelmed for her first start back.
Sent back on the flat in June she bolted up in a 17f over in France and then came back over to Ireland for the Galway Handicap Hurdle, where she was a credible seventh in a big field.
Last time out she was seen winning another nice event on the flat over in France and having been kept under the radar this Cheltenham festival winner has all the attributes you need to go close in a Cesarewitch.
Big player at 10/1.
