The unbeaten son of Sea The Stars progressed quickly in a brief house of time final season profitable all six of his begins, and I hope he produces a efficiency to recollect this weekend to verify he’s Flat racing’s most fun expertise.
The assist races at Newbury are filled with high quality, too, and my finest wager on their seven-race card runs within the finale (5.04pm). I’ve additionally discovered a handful of alternatives for Chelmsford, Newmarket and Navan which is able to all be proven reside on Racing TV. Better of luck along with your bets.
3.00 Newmarket: Shine So Shiny at a common 7-2
This six-year-old obtained again to profitable methods in a first-time hood over this course and distance on good floor final month and, regardless of being raised 4lb, he stays on a gorgeous mark.
Andrew Balding’s gray received at Group Two stage as a three-year-old however was set some troublesome duties afterwards, each in Group and handicap firm, and clearly appreciated dropping again to this stage on his return to motion, in addition to the applying of a hood, which he wears once more right here.
He nonetheless raced a shade keenly final day out and didn’t get a lot cowl, so was most likely worth for greater than the profitable margin suggests plus pulled clear with a race-fit rival, who reopposes on Saturday.
Shine So Shiny is entitled to strip fitter for that outing and his final handicap success got here off a score of 106, so he nonetheless seems to be well-handicapped off a score of 102 right here, particularly with Harry Davies taking off a helpful 7lb once more.
I’m an enormous fan of the rising star of the weighing room who has created an enormous impression within the saddle this season and his mount holds sturdy claims of recording back-to-back victories at HQ.

3.45 Chelmsford: Crimson Sand at 11-4 with William Hill
Crimson Sand has gone shut in higher races that this on his first 4 begins this season and needs to be able to gaining a deserved success on this 0-85 handicap.
He completed third at Lingfield on his newest outing the place he wasn’t seen to finest impact and had beforehand run effectively in two 0-105 handicaps. The constant performer was overwhelmed lower than two lengths on each events and now finds himself 4lb above his final profitable mark.
Nonetheless, I’ve little question he’s handicapped to win off his score based mostly upon his performances this season, and with George Rooke taking off a helpful 3lb serving to his trigger.
His kind figures at Chelmsford learn 1242 and he has the plum attract stall one. Araifjan and Twilight Insanity prefer to get on with issues, so I hope they are going to set the race up properly for Crimson Sand whose rivals are both off form, or seem within the grip of the handicapper.
5.04 Newbury: Sinjaari at a common 6-1
A gifted handicapper who received the John Smith’s Cup on his return to motion in 2020 and was an unfortunate loser on his first outing in a helpful handicap off a score of 105 at York final season.
Given he seems finest recent, I’d be shocked if Sinjaari is missing for health on his first begin for 217 days and he returns with a score of 106. He definitely has the category to defy this mark, although, and apprentice rider Harry Burns eases his weight by 5lb.
Regardless of not getting his head in entrance since his victory at York in 2020, the six-year-old has gone shut in races outdoors of handicap firm over the previous couple of seasons and was narrowly overwhelmed within the London Gold Cup at Newbury in 2019.
He races over a mile for the primary time right here however, given the way in which he travels, I don’t assume the drop in journey might be a problem, particularly as he has additionally clocked some respectable sectionals in his races.
The shape he has proven over the previous couple of seasons entitles him to be shorter than 6-1 for this contest, particularly given his report recent, and he’s a wager at his present odds.
5.35 Navan: Ceallach each-way at 7-1 with Paddy Energy and Betfair
This two-year-old caught the attention on debut when fifth in a one-mile maiden at Dundalk and once more formed with bundles of promise to complete third on his subsequent outing at Navan over the identical journey.
The type of his second begin is figuring out effectively because the second and fourth have scored since plus the winner completed runner-up in a Listed contest on his subsequent begin.
Given the way in which he has formed on his first two outings, the step up in journey is certain to go well with Ceallach plus there’s additionally loads of stamina on his dam’s facet.
Kids from the Mick Halford yard have a tendency to learn from expertise and his cost is anticipated to take one other massive step ahead right here.
