1.40 Newmarket

We start with the 1m5f Bahrain Trophy for 3yo’s where, after winning the previous three renewals, John Gosden will be looking to make it four with FOREVER NOW (10/3 William Hill).  The trainer’s middle distance horses have been sensational this year and this horse looks progressive enough to claim this prize.  Both Windshear and Bunker have good form to their names and should be the biggest dangers, whilst Hartnell is another who must be considered after winning the Queen’s Vase last time out.


2.10 Newmarket

The Group 2 July Stakes over 6f for 2yo’s looks very competitive with The Great War likely to be fancied by connections to improve on his Ascot run.  Mind Of Madness, Jungle Cat and Angelic Lord all ran huge races at Royal Ascot but MUBTAGHAA (7/1 Betfred) impressed the most. The William Haggas colt was thundering home in the Windsor Castle, will improve for the step up in trip and should be a nice price.


3.15 Newmarket

Moving on to leg three of our Lucky 15 betting tip, MOUNT LOGAN (3/1 SkyBet) could be an eyecatching entry in the boylesports.com Handicap.  This horse thundered up the home straight at Goodwood and looked mightily impressive with plenty of improvement to come.  Mange All could be a big danger with a similarly progressive profile and Insaany has also been slowly rising through the ranks.


4.25 Newmarket

Finally, in the Sir Henry Cecil stakes, I’m sticking with the in-form John Gosden as PRETZEL (9/4 bet365) looks the sort to score at this level.  He won well at Ayr previously but his best form lies in his ½ length 2nd to Sandringham Handicap winner Muteela on Newmarket’s Rowley Mile course.  Table Rock has been improving over in Ireland and must be respected, as does Parbold who may well improve on his Ascot run.
