Newmarket 20:20 FRIDAY
Had to put in this bet as I’ve just noticed that Secret Witness is out in this race after what I considered a return to form last time out in the stewards cup. He is a stonking price on Betfair of 18, and a repeat of last week’s run with an additional 3 lbs reduction in mark could have him right in the firing line here.
2 Points win Betfair 18
Two of my selections from the last week or 2 clash tomorrow after unlucky runs last time out. Brockwell was left with far too much to do last time behind Broxburne at Goodwood and should be close with a 5lbs turnaround but the real value here looks to be Saptapadi. He has caught the eye in his last few runs and really got blocked last time out at Goodwood when he was stopped a number of times towards the finish in a better race than this. He can certainly perform of this mark and the step up in trip looks sure to suit tomorrow. 14/1 looks a great price and I can’t see him going off at that price.
2 Points win 14/1 Stan James/Will Hill
Redact is one I’ve been looking at coming down the handicap, and he could well stand a chance today at a big price here. He looked to run well enough a few times this year, including when 3rd to Pintura in May and seemed to be gradually improving in his last 2 runs. That combined with a nice drop in weights leaves him on an interesting mark of 92. He has an excellent Jockey up today and 18/1 seems a great price.
1 Point win 18/1 Generally
There won’t be a lot between most of these and the value here appears to be Zero Money. He always seems to perform here and has a 5lbs swing in the weight with Racy for a 1 ½ length beating here behind Masamah. If he can repeat that form today he won’t be far away and 11/1 looks Value . Judge ‘N Jury looks a big danger and is probably worth a saver at 9/1, given that he looks to be getting back to form.
1 Point win Zero Money 11/1 888 & Will Hill..
½ Point win Judge ‘N Jury 9/1 Bet Victor
