16:10 Newbury

Hebrides is likely to be popular for the red hot Haggas/Marquand combo. There’s no doubt he has a progressive profile, however the form of his latest start doesn’t look that strong. He could be vulnerable.

Galiac was impressive winning at Goodwood last time. He’s gone up seven pounds for that, and Goodwood form doesn’t always translate elsewhere.

Conservative will be the each way selection, hopefully at a decent price. He still looks progressive, and despite being a beaten favourite last time, he only went down narrowly to a horse that also has a progressive profile and a subsequent winner. He looks good value to place at least.

CONSERVATIVE (E/W) 16:30 Leicester

At Liberty bumped into winning machine Captain Kane last time, and ran with a deal of credit. He’s off the same mark again, and with a repeat of his last run, he’ll be a big contender under the talented Harry Davies.

Thunder Queen is a consistent filly. Her latest run was a good effort in which she split two decent fillies to come second at Nottingham. She is another with an obvious chance.

Wootton’Sun is the selection here. He won on his three year old seasonal debut at Doncaster. He did everything wrong that day, being far too keen, but after being headed showed a great attitude to get back up to win. His latest start in an ultra competitive handicap at Newbury was a decent effort considering he went off too hard again. A drop in grade on a course that suits front runners, should see this horse continue with his progress.
