After a lot of low grade racing so far this week, we have some quality to go at from Newbury plus an interesting maiden at Nottingham.
Good ground at most of the tracks today with the exception being Haydock who report soft ground with rain forecast.
Two races to look at.
Newbury 3.40: A 2 y.o. listed race with the favourite Mokarris of interest.
Impressed on debut at Haydock before disappointing in the Coventry at Royal Ascot on soft ground. With so many at Royal Ascot, the form in unsuitable conditions can be forgiven. I would expect a return to form on today’s faster ground.
I have put Mokarris in at 3/1 on my provisional tissue. The bookmakers are taking no chances and go as low as 6/4. Would expect some ease in price once the market gets more fluidity.
Nottingham 4.05: The market is dominated by To Eternity and Honorina.
To Eternity was noted on debut when just failing to overturn the odds-on favourite at Doncaster. It was a victory for Michael Stoute on that occasion and the Gosden filly has another Stoute 3 y.o. to overcome today in the shape of Honorina.
Honorina has been off the course for eleven months after her two decent runs as a 2 y.o.
It looks an interesting battle between the pair.
Three bets for us so far this week, with two successful. There are special terms now available and you can get my free information pack. The pack also includes my noted horses. The latest winner from the shortlist being Mehmas who won well at the Newmarket July meeting last week.

Back tomorrow morning as we have a good mix of flat and jumps to look at.
