Newmarket Saturday Preview - 05/10/19

13:40 - Eva Maria

The Class 2 Premier Fillies Handicap sees a fair field of runners go to post and the filly we fancy is the Richard Fahey trained Eva Maria.

This three year old has been super consistent this season not finishing outside the top three on all four of her runs and going on to win two of those contests.

This daughter of Sea The Stars has won on good to soft ground meaning she should handle the conditions on Saturday and her win at Ayr last time out sets the standard here.

14:15 - Under The Stars and Keep Busy

The October Auction Stakes sees 30 runners go to post in this Class 2 Handicap with the race winner picking up over £81,000 and with that in mind we have two fancies for the contest.

The first is the strong favourite trained by James Tate with Under The Stars who has ran to a good standard in much better races than this but there is just a question of whether he will handle the soft ground.

Last time out he finished a good fourth in the Group Two Rockfel Stakes over seven furlongs at the track and the drop back to six furlongs will help massively making him a big player.

Our each way selection for the big fielded event is Keep Busy for trainer John Quinn and this filly enters the frame off the back of her second at Chester last time out on soft ground.

She will revel in the conditions with her two best finishes coming on a tough, slow surface.

15:25 - Hermosa

The feature race of the day is the Group One Sun Chariot Stakes over a mile and this race shows off some of the best fillies over this distance in the world.

We have sided with Aidan O'Brien's Hermosa, the three year old started the season brightly winning on her seasonal debut in the 1000 Guineas over course and distance and then she landed the Irish equivalent at the Curragh.

She was touched off in second to shock French raider Watch Me losing her unbeaten record for the season last time out at Royal Ascot.

She was stepped up to 1 mile 2 furlongs in the Nassau Stakes where something was a miss and finished last of the pack and again she wasn't at he best in the Matron Stakes.

Hermosa finished second that day behind Iridessa and to go close here she will have to reverse that form but looks one of the more likely winners having previously won on soft.

16:00 - Raeeb

A Class 4 Novice Stakes over seven furlongs throws up a lot of newcomers with a lot of potential but the horse we hold in the highest regard is Raaeb.

This Saeed bin Suroor trained colt has only raced once in his career and he got off the mark straight away at the Doncaster St Leger meeting landing a Class 3 contest.

Back in a Class 4 gives him obvious claims but he will be encountering soft ground for the first time which is the only worry but if handling that he should be tough to beat.

16:35 - Specialise

Our final selections on the Newmarket card sees us select just the one runner in a big fielded Class 2 handicap with this filly offering some superb form.

Specialise looks a class act running to a high standard in her last three contests with figures of 122.

Her latest second came on soft ground behind a potential superstar in Illumined from trainer John Gosden and that offers some strong form.
