Ones to watch / Daily Pointers
- Newbury stages the Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes tomorrow afternoon and this afternoon’s card is none too shabby either. Trainer Mark Johnston targets the mile and a half handicap at 2.20 with three year old The Trader, a horse who benefits from a handy weight for age allowance against his elders. It’s been a season of frustration for this individual so far, continually finding one or two too good, but James Doyle is booked and a big run looks on the cards on just his second try at this longer trip.
- As highlighted by Wednesday’s Daily Racing Report it was a Frankie Dettori day at Sandown, the livewire Italian leaving with three winners and a second in his grasp following a book of five rides. After a rest day yesterday he shows up at Newbury today, purely to partner Cape Palace in the 3.25 race. The Derby entry caused quite a stir when winning by eight lengths on his racecourse debut at Newcastle late last month! FansBet are currently 28/1 about Cape Palace landing the Derby in June 2020.
- Also worth watching at Newbury this afternoon is the seven furlong Dubai Duty Free Cup Stakes, a listed contest due off at 3.55. Rated 112, Richard Hannon’s Tabarrak towers over his rivals on the figures following cracking efforts in defeat at Goodwood and Ascot. Promisingly he likes it here too, winning this exact race in 2017, leaving him with a perfect two from two record over this course and distance.
- There is also a stack of good action to take in day two of Ayr’s huge September meeting, not least the listed five furlong Rosebery Stakes at 2.40. A three strong Irish challenge adds a layer of intrigue here, especially where Isabeau is concerned. Michael O’Callaghan’s 101-rated filly caught the eye when narrowly beaten at the Curragh last month.
