Newmarket hosts racing from Thursday to Saturday. Our top tipster has a 9-4 Nap for day one of the fixture at the sport’s Flat HQ, featuring the Group 3 Tattersalls Stakes
MAX VEGA has the power to deliver in the Jockey Club Rose Bowl Stakes (3.20) at Newmarket.
Favourite for the Listed contest on day one of the Cambridgeshire meeting, the four-year-old arrives at HQ on the back of a solid fifth in the Ebor.
Ralph Beckett’s charge came from a fair way back that day, doing all of his best work at the finish.
The winner has since taken his form up several notches with success in Group 1 company – a level the selection reached when unplaced in the 2020 Derby.
Rated 4lb lower than at that stage of his career, he now tries a distance of two miles, which should be ideal given the way he saw his race out at York.
Slight ease in the ground is just what is required and he impressed in the Zetland Stakes here a couple of years ago.
Andre Fabre has the ammunition to land the Group 3 Tattersalls Stakes (2.45) with TRIDENT.
The top-rated juvenile in the field won at Longchamp on debut and finished runner-up in the Prix Morny.
He ran above expectations considering his starting price that day, with the step up to seven furlongs ideal on that showing.
LOSTWITHIEL had good form earlier in the season and a 76-day break should put him spot on for the Discover Newmarket Handicap (3.55).
His half-length second behind Global Storm, a horse rated 104 on his last run, makes him appear nicely handicapped.
Mark Johnston’s improving three-year-old Tribal Art is the main danger in receipt of weight.
