2:25 – Atalanta Stakes (Group Three) – Heredia @ 9/2 (William Hill)

The Atalanta Stake is commonly a tough race to decipher. There have been three double-priced winners within the final 4 runnings. One other stat of the race is that just one five-year-old has gained this race in its historical past (Girl Bear in 2003). There has, additionally, by no means been a twin winner of the race.


This attracts me to Heredia, who’s making the step as much as Group Three stage for the primary time in a 12 months. She’s been very constant, with two seconds and a convincing win final outing. Her potential to go on all types of floor exhibits that it gained’t be an issue, however an outdoor draw might trigger a small challenge. However held up off the tempo, she may make a late burst up the hill late on.


Written In The Stars?

3:38 – Solario Stakes (Group Three) – Starlore @ 2/1 (Basic)

Breeding means that Starlore will win this race, as his sire Kingman did again in 2013. And loads of favourites have gained this and gone on to raised issues. Masar and Too Darn Scorching are most likely probably the most notable out of the final ten years, in addition to Kingman.

However Starlore might possess star high quality. It won’t have been a convincing debut when idling on the end to carry on by a nostril, however the type from that race has labored out, Arabian Crown specifically stands out. With a small discipline, and the most effective jockey on board (Ryan Moore), he appears slightly overprices at 2/1.

And speaking of Starlore’s debut, Satan’s Level additionally franked the shape when successful subsequent outing at Ffos Las in convincing trend. On debut, he solely completed inside one-and-a-half lengths of the winner and won’t be far behind right here at 11/2 (888Sport, BetVictor, BetUK)



A Rocket For The Bullet

2:40 – William Hill Beverley Bullet (Listed) – Apollo One @ 100/30 (William Hill, Betfred)

Apollo One has had a quiet, but constant season. 4 runs and 4 locations, that isn’t dangerous type contemplating they had been all in Class 2/Heritage Handicaps. However floor versatile, and with a super attract stall two there could also be nothing to cease this rocket lastly grabbing a a lot wanted win.

However spare a thought for Tis Marvellous, the twin winner of the well-known race. It could possibly be the swansong for the legend of the Westwood and what a method it might be to bow out. He’s gained from stall six earlier than, and he might have the higher hand in what seems a tactical race. 7/1 (888Sport, BetVictor, Boylesports)



Flying To The Entrance

3:20 – Chester Stakes (Listed) – Lone Eagle @ 100/30 (Basic)

Lone Eagle’s finest efficiency this season came visiting this C&D again in Could. He completed behind Hamish, and hasn’t seemed something like that day in Could since. It might be as a result of he caught the Group One bug, disappointing in each the Ascot Gold Cup and Goodwood Cup.

He’s tumbled all the way down to Listed stage, which needs to be his bread and butter, and Ralph Beckett will need to maintain his successful streak within the race going touchdown the final two editions on the Roodee.

Navy Order hasn’t raced because the Derby, however a hike up in distance round a difficult observe like Chester doesn’t fill me with confidence. And ending final within the Derby speaks volumes that he didn’t just like the observe, and Chester is commonly an excellent trial to cope with the bends.

The easiest of luck!
