14.10 Newbury – Mysterious Night
A hot Watch Racing TV with a free trial now Novice Stakes can go the way of Godolphin’s Mysterious Night.
The two-year-old colt trained by Charlie Appleby is a brother to year one winner at Belmont, Althiqa and appears to be a well-bred individual by Dark Angel.
Only beaten a nose on its Newbury debut, Mysterious Night can make amends under Will Buick.
15.10 Newbury – Golden Lyre
Another hot race in the form of the Greatwood British EBF Stakes (Reg’ as Abingdon Stakes) can be taken by William Haggas’ Golden Lyra.
Running in the yellow and mauve silks of breeder Sea The Stars Sunderland Holding, this three-year-old filly has this superlative horse in the bloodline on the dam’s side.
A first seven furlong win at Newmarket could not have been more impressive, coming by five lengths to the seat. This entry from Pretty Polly should handle the step up to a mile, two furlongs with aplomb.
16.15 Newbury – Nietzsche’s star
Named after the famous philosopher, Nietzsche’s Star can stand alone in a low KKA Studio Handicap.
Andrew Balding’s three-year-old was slow to come to terms but showed what he can do with an easy win last time out over seven and a half furlongs at Lingfield.
Tom Queally took the reins of Lingers on May 21 and keeps them here with a strong chance of a quick follow-up.
