With Ascot hosting the brilliant but unpredictable Shergar Cup meeting today, our focus has to be on Newmarket for sensible investments. The format of the Shergar cup makes for a great day out with a host of top international jockeys on show but a combination of never having ridden their mounts previously and for some, never having ridden in the UK, can make the form book an irrelevance.
The Hannon and Hughes combination is always to be respected when sending out improving 2 year olds and in ‘Baby Bush’ 15.35 Newmarket they might just have another. The race includes some other sharp prospects and ‘Baby Bush’ may well start at attractive odds-5pts E/W
‘Bostonian’ looks a good thing in the 16.45 also at Newmarket and although not expected to be as generously priced as our previous selection, could provide a valuable banker for multiple bets. -5pts Win
Double them up in a 1pt E/W double.
