This looks another good betting race as we have an odds-on favourite who isn’t nearly as solid as the betting suggests. Terebellum was very unlucky not to win the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot and her form is clearly very good, but it looked a particularly weak renewal and the time was only 2-3 lengths better than the Duke Of Cambridge Stakes ran over the same course and distance on the same day. NAZEEF won carrying 3lb more in a more strongly run race. I’m not saying Nazeef’s run was better, but I don’t think there’s much in it and she’s over five times the price. I was very impressed with her at Ascot and she is very consistent so she’s every chance. Agincourt was narrowly behind at Ascot so there’s an obvious value angle there, but the outsider of the field Under The Stars is a big player if she stays and is worth sniping a big exchange price if you can find one.
1pt win Nazeef @11/2, 16:10 Newmarket, FridayLeave a comment
