We edge close to Royal Ascot next week but the quality action continues with plenty of interesting racing at Beverley, Gowran Park, Newbury, Lingfield and Yarmouth.
Gowran Park (14.00)
This maiden may not be as warm as some of the others we have seen in recent days but I think it can offer us a decent price for one of the more exposed horses in the race.
Jungle Cove hails from a stable bang in form, running at a 22% strike rate since racing resumed. The colt bumped into several very useful types in his two-year-old season. Back on better ground, he can land his first win at Gowran today.
Gold Wand heads the betting in this Newbury maiden and can put her experience to good use over this one-mile, two-furlong trip.
Roger Varian’s horse finished second on her only start at Doncaster. The form of that race looks warm with the third from that run winning at Saint-Cloud in November.
The price of the Golden Wand is helped by the debut of Portrush, who has a stunning page being by Frankel and related to Arc winner Enable. Whilst she may be a better longer-term prospect, Gold Wand should get the win today.
