Newmarket Cambridgeshire Meeting

The post-Cheltenham blues have lastly dissipated in time as in the present day marks the primary day of the British Flat season with the Lincoln at Doncaster.

That being mentioned, motion over at Newbury for his or her jumps finale means Nationwide Hunt followers are additionally happy.

So, with a couple of fancies from each codes, let’s start.

Knight received the higher of Charyn within the Group 2 Celebration Mile Stakes final season, so I’m hoping he can affirm the shape within the opening race at Doncaster in the present day.

Simon & Ed Crisford’s four-year-old completed second to Chindit on his penultimate begin final season within the Listed Fortune Stakes at Sandown.

⭐️ Class tells within the characteristic – a number of Group scorer Chindit is simply too good within the Listed @chasemorefarm Fortune Stakes for @rhannonracing at @Sandownpark

🏇 4 runs in Listed firm in his profession
🏆 4 wins!

That kind seems strong as Raadobarg (third) completed third within the Irish Lincolnshire lately, Breege (4th) completed second in a Listed race on his subsequent begin, and Silver Sword (fifth) completed second in a Group 3.

Though he upset on his seasonal reappearance final season, connections have utilized a first-time visor to maintain his thoughts on the job and I feel he can enhance previous his opponents in the present day.


2:10 Newbury – Kartoon And Co @ 15/8 with William Hill – 2pt Win

He’s well-found available in the market, however Kartoon And Co seems to have a strong likelihood within the second race at Newbury.

Firstly, the Dan Skelton yard is in scorching kind having picked up 14 wins from their final 55 runners, so he has that on his facet.

As for the horse, his second to Givemefive at Market Rasen three begins in the past seems like good kind as Givemefive was an in depth second to Kalif Du Berlais in a Grade 2 at Kempton.

Givemefive makes a likeable debut over jumps, coming clear with a earlier winner and looking out a good juvenile for the @Harry05Derham crew 🏇 @MarketRasenRace

Right now is his second handicap begin, however he was unlucky to not win final day trip as his successful effort was most likely a case of too little too late.

Though he’s a four-year-old, he will get 12lbs from his elders within the handicap and a racing weight of 10-2 is the bottom weight Harry Skelton has achieved for not less than a 12 months.

So, with all this in thoughts, Kartoon And Co ought to go effectively.


3:00 Doncaster – Orazio @ 10/3 with BetVictor – 1pt Win

As cliff horses go, Orazio was a giant one in every of mine final season and sadly, he didn’t repay me as soon as.

Having backed him as my Royal Ascot NAP within the Wokingham Handicap, he discovered the bottom too fast and will solely handle sixth.

Then, having backed him as my Wonderful Goodwood NAP within the Stewards’ Cup, a last-minute downpour noticed the bottom go towards him and he walked over the road.

Though he completed inside three lengths of Considerably within the Ayr Gold Cup, he solely completed eleventh which makes me suppose that big-field handicaps usually are not his factor.

It looks as if connections might agree as though a mark of 100 would see him go effectively in any six-furlong handicap, they’ve pitched him into Listed firm in the present day towards six rivals.

There’s little doubt in my thoughts that he’s a Group horse, so in the present day is the day we discover out if he can stay as much as this repute.


3:15 Newbury – Condesa @ 14/1 with BoyleSports – 1pt EW

Though she has to hold 11-11 on her again, Condesa seems well-handicapped off 123.

The eight-year-old is definitely the skilled head of the sphere having had over two years off the monitor between 2021 and 2023.

Nonetheless, earlier than her time without work the monitor, she completed third to Get together Central (now rated 140) in a bumper.

Simple as you want for Condesa because the mare returns from a mammoth 809-day absence to expire a dominant winner of the @PKAVScharity Enhancing Wellbeing In Perthshire Novices’ Hurdle for the @crawfordbros and JJ Slevin mixture 🥇

After her 809 days away from the monitor, she bolted up by seven lengths at Perth earlier than ending second to Springtime Promise at Sedgefield in January; Springtime Promise has since received a Group 2 and the third from that race, Micks Jet, bolted up at Musselburgh on her subsequent begin.

The bottom ought to swimsuit and she or he has been backed.


3:35 Doncaster – Lattam @ 12/1 with William Hill – 1pt EW

The Lincoln is all the time a troublesome handicap to work out, however Lattam seems like one who may run effectively on seasonal reappearance.

The five-year-old received the Irish Lincolnshire off a mark of 87 final season when skilled by William Haggas, and though his successful margin of a short-head isn’t a lot, he got here from the clouds and was very spectacular.

He didn’t correctly kick on from this early-season success, however his second to Jimi Hendrix when he was rated 94 seems like good kind because the winner has now improved to a ranking of 111.

He goes effectively recent and he’ll just like the delicate floor.


3:35 Doncaster – Dutch Decoy @ 28/1 with William Hill – 1pt EW

With the complexity of the Lincoln, it’s exhausting to not again a pair within the race and Dutch Decoy is the opposite one I’m preserving onside in the present day.

Though he’s on a career-high mark of 93, he appeared higher than ever final season and has some good kind within the guide.

The primary race to deal with is his third to Perotto and Ouzo within the Coral Problem Handicap at Sandown as Perotto received the Shergar Cup Mile two begins later and Ouzo has received three handicaps since, two of which over in Meydan.

Dutch Decoy stays on greatest to seize the Lettergold Handicap in a stirring end! 🏆@olistammers | @Johnston_Racing | @ownersgroupuk

Dutch Decoy then beat Hafeet Alain and Liberty Lane at Newmarket earlier than they went on to win and he was additionally third behind a well-handicapped Johan within the Golden Mile at Wonderful Goodwood.

He seems to have a beneficial draw and a mark of 93 seems workable, so his value of 28/1 is simply too huge to disregard.
