Horse racing betting tips for the best bets on Friday from Newbury and Hamilton
A variety of good quality cards across a number of British tracks on Friday, with contests at Newbury and Hamilton forming part of my best bets.
The feature race at Newbury is a Listed event for 2yo’s over 6f, and it looks another ideal opportunity for ADAAY (2/1 Ladbrokes). He claimed victory in his first two maiden’s with relative ease, beating Norfolk Stakes second Mind Of Madness on just his second career start, running on well to score on that occasion. William Haggas’ charge was then entered for the fiercely competitive Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot and was sent off joint-favourite. Despite finishing eigth in the race, it was a solid performance from the colt who finished just three lengths behind The Wow Signal. The form since the race has panned out well as Kool Kompany, who was several lengths behind, went on to land The Railway Stakes in Ireland. Adaay drops down in class here and, if able to reproduce his Royal Ascot performance, he should prove far too good.
The main danger looks to be Charlie Hill’s Cotai Glory. Although he finished last of the field on debut, he surprisingly ran in the Windsor Castle Stakes at the Royal Meeting. He ended up finishing a creditable sixth in that race and since then has gone on to score easily when winning at Bath on the bridle.
In a competitive Listed even at Hamilton, I think that SUDDEN WONDER (6/1 Ladbrokes) can get back to winning ways. Charlie Appleby’s entrant finished with only one horse behind him in the Derby last time out, however he was hampered when making good progress at Epsom and lost all momentum being virtually pulled up by Kevin Manning. He drops down in class for this event and has solid form in his book after having finished third in the competitive Lingfield Derby Trial to Snow Sky and Hartnel. The Godolphin colt’s last victory came in April where he saw off Observational who has since landed a Listed race himself. I really like the selection’s attitude that day at Newmarket, running on gamely to win and, both the drop in class and trip, should give Sudden Wonder every chance here.
Odeon is probably the biggest threat in the race, having finished fourth in the Dante Stakes at York, just three lengths behind The Grey Gatsby before flopping at Royal Ascot. You can probably forgive that run as something clearly wasn’t right that day, however rain must come if he is to get involved.
