Cavalryman won the big race of the day yesterday as we had thought he may do, with the doubts of the big two materialising. COuple of hard luck stories elsewhere on the day and we will be looking for a strong penultimate day at the meeting.
Here are our thoughts on each race today:
1.55 1m 4f Class 1 Coutts Glorious Stakes –
A very interesting contender with Godolphin pitching him at this level after smashing the field in a maiden at Newbury despite being green in the early stages, recording a good time in the progress. This is a big step up against more experienced rivals but we think it is worth taking a chance on the unexposed horse as could be top class.
3.05 1m 0f Class 2 Betfred Mile –
MAGIC CITY 10/1 EW.
Almost selected last night as a members tip and we do fancy to run well as this looks a realy good opportunity for a revival.Three times course winner and caught the eye last time out finishing 2nd at Salisbury by a length.
3.40 5f Class 1 Betfred King George Stakes –
MOVIESTA 8/1 EW.
Past winner of this race, and although hasn't quite fired yet this season in a handful of starts should be bang on here after a couple of race over 6 furlongs.
4.15 6f Class 2 Betfred Supports Jack Berry House Nursery –
MAGICAL MEMORY 9/1 EW
Bit more well raced than a few of these and although as a result looks a tad exposed can put that race experienmce to good use here.Disappointed last time out at Newbury but if can shrug that off looks primed for a big run here judging on earlier efforts.
4.50 7f Class 1 LOrmarins Queens Plate Stakes –
MUTEELA 3/1 (Member's Tip from last night)
It won't come as much of a surprise that we have selected this horse again for regular followers of VHT. Had it ear marked as one of our horses to watch at the start of the season, although we will probably admit we wern't expecting it to be running in a Group 3 race at the start of August. Has progressed at a rate of knots and hopefully can take this step up in class in her step.
5.25 1m 3f Class 3 Betfred Mobile Handicap –
ARTFUL ROGUE 10/1 EW
Still a maiden but still yet to see best and caught the eye when running well last time finishing 2nd to Emmulating at Kempton. Cheekpieces are on and with track experience and SDS booked a big run looks on the cards.
