predictions logo accent sport preview



Coral Rockingham Stakes (Listed Race) (Class 1) 6f

ALPHA CAPTURE (1) managed to place second beaten by a narrow margin in a valuable 6 ½f sales race at Doncaster. He is taken to go one better dropping in trip. BOLT ACTION (3) won by 0.75L a 6f contest at Salisbury and a bold show expected stepping up in grade. ROUSING ENCORE (6) finished 3.5L second in the 6f G2 Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury. Rates a danger to all down in class. FELIX NATALIS (4) completed a double winning by 2L in a sales event at Naas. Shortlist.


Coral ‘Beaten-By-A-Length’ Free Bet Handicap (Class 2) 1m 2f

MARCHING ARMY (2) completed a double winning by a neck over 1m 2f at Newbury. Expected to continue his winning streak. PROTAGONIST (4) won twice prior to a 6 ¼L tenth in the Cambridgeshire Handicap at Newmarket last time. Looks up to playing a key role here. STAY WELL (5) recorded a 3L fifth behind Marching Army at Newbury last time. Of note in this event. WHAT’S THE STORY (6) is another with claims following a neck second attempting 1mile at Ayr.


Coral Sprint Trophy Handicap (Heritage Handicap) (Class 2) 6f

DUSKY LORD (3) won by 3L in a 6f handicap at Ayr last month. Selected to follow up. LETHAL NYMPH (13) delivered a 2.5L triumph in a handicap over 6f  at Ascot eight days ago. Rates a big threat bidding to complete a hat-trick. MR WAGYU (1) came home 2L fifth in the Ayr Gold Cup last time. Strong chance. LAUGH A MINUTE (18) is another with claims following a 2.5L third attempting 5f at The Curragh two weeks ago.


Club Godolphin Cesarewitch Handicap (Heritage Handicap) (Class 2) 2m 2f

A typically competitive renewal of this feature handicap where a tentative vote is handed to FAVORITE MOON (2). This will be just his fifth start for the stable and he arrives following a convincing maiden hurdle success at Downpatrick last month. Its interesting connections have opted to avoid handicap company in Ireland and with this mark looking workable based on his previous form with William Haggas, he could be worth chancing. Willie Mullins has won three of the last four renewals and his GIBRALTAR (22) must be respected from the foot of the weights. AHORSEWITHNONAME (8) hacked up over 2miles at York and needs serious consideration for last year’s winning yard. RUN FOR OSCAR (14) is interesting following a smooth Haydock success while VINO VICTRIX (13) is also noted.

4:02 – Chepstow

Wasdell Group Silver Trophy Handicap Hurdle (GBB Race) 4YO plus, (Class 2) 2m 3f 100y

A classy handicap hurdle where KNAPPERS HILL (2) could extend his winning sequence on his seasonal reappearance. ZABEEL CHAMPION (10) reverts to jumping after a successful flat campaign. A fascinating runner with an unexposed profile on his handicap hurdle debut. BROOMFIELD BURG (6) ran third as the favourite at Market Rasen over 2m 5f. Expecting a strong showing with that effort under his belt. BOURBALI (7) must be included following a hat-trick of handicap hurdles victories culminating in a 1 ¾L win at Plumpton back in April.
