6f Dubai Duty Free Mill Reef Stakes (Group 2) (Class 1) (2yo)
A good betting heat with lots of chances. Dhabab is priced up short because his form was franked in a big way by Native Trail, but he does keep getting beaten as favourite. I’m going for two in this – rather than betting each way – and 14/1 shot WINGS OF WAR looks one to be on. He flashed home to pick up second at Kempton last time out and represents a yard that know their sprinters. Second is GIS A SUB, who has much better form courtesy of his Gimcrack second to Lusail, where he beat Twilight Jet who has since franked that at Doncaster. The key to his chance is to let him lengthen so I’d expect a fairly prominent run. 8/1 is nice.
1pt win Gis A Sub @8/1, 16:00 Newbury, Saturday
1pt win Wings Of War @14/1, 16:00 Newbury, Saturday
