The Bet365 handicap gets things underway on day two of the July meeting and it is the two top-weights Dark Vision (14/1) and Walkinthesand (12/1) that catch our eye.
Firstly, Dark Vision has been crying out for this step up in trip this season and he should build on his terrific 2-y-o promise with his stamina drawn out. Mark Johnston has won the race five of the last six seasons and James Doyle is in the saddle.
Secondly, right at the top of the weights is Walkinthesand for Richard Hannon and Ryan Moore. This aptly named son of footstepsinthesand has finished second on both visits to Newmarket and both of those races were stronger than this.
