RAVEN’S UP – 1.30 Haydock

Seven races on ITV4 Friday start with the Previous Bootleians Nursery at Haydock and some horses who disenchanted final time have discovered themselves in the direction of the highest of the market.

I wouldn’t be eager on taking comparatively quick costs about Rogue Spirit or Al Dasim, whereas Queen Of Uplands scraped house in a better race at Lingfield and appears up in opposition to it up 4lb.

Desire is for RAVEN’S UP for Marco Botti, as she has improved considerably with every run and took care of a few earlier winners at Ripon final time the place she wasn’t proven the whip.

That implies there’s lots extra to come back from her and she will be able to strike beneath Benoit De La Sayette off a gap mark of 79.

ZANBAQ – 1.50 Newmarket

ZANBAQ can ship on her potential within the Listed Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai British EBF Rosemary Stakes in Newmarket’s Friday opener.

Her coach Roger Varian is in flying type and this filly deserves a change of luck after discovering hassle in her final two races at Ascot, when second within the Sandringham and when fifth within the Valiant Stakes final trip.

The Royal Ascot second is the standout piece of type on this race and if she will get a clear run at these and runs to that type of degree she might be powerful to beat.

Sir Michael Stoute’s Crystal Caprice, on a four-timer, is the hazard, however it is a large step up for her and he or she’ll must settle higher than she did final time if she’s to get house at this degree.

MOON WATCH – 2.05 Haydock

John & Thady Gosden’s MOON WATCH has been crushed at odds-on on his final two runs however he’s value backing on handicap debut within the J W Lees MPA Handicap at Haydock.

He gained cosily on his solely earlier run on turf on debut at Nottingham (see video replay, under) and he has excuses for 2 subsequent defeats on the all-weather, as he was too eager at Kempton after which was unsuited by making the working in a small discipline at Newcastle final time.

These performances have left him with an attractive-looking mark of 89 for his handicap debut right here and he can come house strongly if he will get some cowl on this.

Gosden has him within the Balmoral Handicap at Ascot on Champions Day, however the three-year-old will should be rated at the very least a 100 to get in that – which might be a sign of the regard wherein he’s held.

PERIPATETIC – 2.25 Newmarket

It seems a trappy renewal of the Group 3 Princess Royal Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai Stakes with Sea Silk Highway the shape choose on the premise of her defeat of Everlasting Pearl at Goodwood in Might.

That rival has gained thrice since and he or she reopposes in nice nick, whereas Sea Silk Highway has been a crushed favorite in each the Ribblesdale and Prix de la Nonette subsequently.

Each are hold-up horses who want gallop to purpose at, although, and there’s little or no tempo on paper right here.

The exception is PERIPATETIC for Roger Varian, Cheveley Park and Ryan Moore, and whereas she has lots to seek out on the rankings after successful a three-runner handicap at Goodwood final trip, she is unexposed on the journey and will get this run to go well with.

Connections can be hoping for some black sort and the perfect path to that on this race might be to take the bull by the horns from the entrance finish. It might properly work and he or she may even hit the jackpot at an enormous value.

BALTIC BIRD – 2.40 Haydock

Frankel colt BALTIC BIRD can bounce again after a break within the Haldane Fisher Handicap for the Gosdens at Haydock.

He seemed a really good prospect when successful maiden at Yarmouth in Might, the place he beat subsequent winners Naval School, Wait To Excel and Sooghan simply.

Thrown in on the deep within the Queen’s Vase after that, he trailed in final with the quick floor as an excuse, however it might simply have been a case of an excessive amount of too quickly.

After over three months off the observe he can show himself to the good prospect he seemed again within the spring on his handicap debut off a gap perch of 92.

COMMISSIONING – 3.00 Newmarket

It might be an excellent day for Workforce Gosden and their Kingman filly COMMISSIONING seems an thrilling prospect on present within the Group 2 Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai Rockfel Stakes.

She ran a little bit inexperienced on debut at Newmarket however nonetheless scooted clear by an emphatic three lengths, displaying loads of tempo for a filly that’s bred to thrive going up in journey subsequent yr.

Seven furlongs seems the right journey for her at this stage and it’s unlikely that she’ll have to enhance an excessive amount of to win this, with Debutante runner-up Olivia Maralda setting the usual.

TEMPUS – 3.35 Newmarket

Archie Watson has positioned TEMPUS properly to choose up a few Group 3 prizes at Salisbury and Deauville in August and that newest win in France was a career-best effort.

He gave 8lb to Internationalangel, a 106-rated filly who was a head second in a Group 3 at Goodwood on her earlier begin, and beat her by almost two lengths after choosing up properly from a distinguished place.

These he raced with fell away so it seemed a extremely good effort and the Al Basti Eqiworld, Dubai Joel Stakes seems one other good set-up for him.

Oscula can tow him into proceedings and Hollie Doyle needs to be properly positioned to strike down the surface from stall one, with Pogo, who loves Newmarket, trying the obvious hazard.
