I’m not the primary, I gained’t be the final, and I’m definitely not essentially the most outstanding individual to inform you this, however with the rain that has hit Newbury over the past 24 hours, Arrest seems to be a great wager within the Group 3 Geoffrey Freer Stakes.

As I admitted on Wednesday’s Solely Fools Love Horses video, following his dominant Group 3 Chester Vase victory in Could, I backed this Frankel colt for the Arc in October at 25/1.

Though that didn’t eloquently show my capacity to be a great decide, the efficiency proven across the tight monitor warranted a excessive stage of respect as he swept apart Adelaide River, a subsequent Irish Oaks and Grand Prix de Paris runner-up.

One other wide-margin winner in testing situations!

Two runs since on good-to-firm floor within the Group 1 Epsom Derby and Group 2 King Edward VII Stakes, the latter behind King Of Metal, haven’t seen him to the best impact, nevertheless, John & Thady Gosden have freshened him up since and, most significantly, the bottom shall be on the softer facet of fine.

This step-up in journey shouldn’t trigger too many points, and with the weight-for-age allowance in full power, Arrest is my horse to open up the Newbury suggestions.

Within the very subsequent race, Whenthedealinisdone seems to be like a standout contender at 8/1 within the Highclere Fortress Gin Handicap.

The Roger Teal-trained five-year-old is on his lowest ever mark of 87 having solely been rated this leniently again throughout his two-year-old season in October 2020.

The handicapper has clearly taken a powerful view on his current runs this season as he has dropped 11 kilos in six begins for a five-year-old who nonetheless comprises his unique capacity.

This was displayed in his second-placed effort at Windsor when behind King Of Bavaria and forward of the longer term Epsom Sprint winner, Navello.

Completely bolted up!

The Darkish Angel gelding has a great report in direction of the center elements of the season after a number of runs below his belt and now he’s three kilos beneath his final successful mark – and 11 kilos beneath his score when third to Quick Response at Doncaster – at this time may very well be the day to catch him.

Lastly, the Coronary heart Bingo Summer season Sizzler Handicap is below the microscope and because the largest worth of the three Newbury suggestions, Jim Boyle’s Hodler at 12/1 seems to be like an attention-grabbing wager.


Sadly, on the time of writing, the 25/1 early worth has dissipated to a skinnier 12/1, nevertheless, there’s loads of motive to recommend why.

Placing his disappointing effort on good-to-firm floor on Epsom Oaks day to at least one facet, the Sea The Moon four-year-old defeated Charlie Fellows’ Gorak by two lengths on tender floor at Chester when formally rated two kilos greater than the runner-up.

Following that run, Gorak gained a Haydock handicap 17 days later earlier than he completed simply two lengths behind Jumby within the Group 3 John Of Gaunt Stakes, a efficiency that noticed the handicapper elevate him 19 kilos to a mark of 105, 23 kilos greater than his Chester second.

Moreover, Paws For Thought crossed the road in third throughout that beforehand talked about Chester race, a horse who went on to win three on the bounce later this season, whereas the fourth, Damaged Spear, was a winner Leicester on his subsequent begin and the fifth, One other Batt, has since accomplished a quickfire double.

On that Chester race alone, Holder seems to be well-handicapped off 89 even earlier than you take a look at his remaining begin of final season the place he completed second to Astral Beau, a horse that has improved 24 kilos since.

Out of stall 4 on Saturday, there must be tempo round him due to Isla Kai in 5 and Prime Secret in three, and I hope that the five-pound declare of jockey Luke Catton will help Hodler make it two wins from three races.


Bonus Fancy: 2:40 Ripon – Holbache @ 9/1 with William Hill – 1pt EW

Lastly, away from Newbury, at this time’s card at Ripon is definitely one to be excited by with the Nice St Wilfrid trying as aggressive as ever, however within the race immediately earlier than, Holbache is a horse I can’t let go off unbacked at 9/1.

The five-year-old by Coach Home has been a loyal servant for the Worcestershire-based staff throughout his three years on the monitor, a run that has included six wins from 27 outings.

Two of these victories have occurred in his final 5 races and in each of these successes on the all-weather final 12 months, he delivered a really spectacular front-running efficiency.

After a winter break, he returned to the monitor final month with a promising seasonal opener at York below at this time’s jockey Connor Beasley, a run that ought to have him spot-on for at this time.

Because of the handicapper dropping him two kilos for the run final day trip, he can definitely make a mark of 71 work, so the hopes are excessive for a great run at this time.
