Newbury’s NAP: HOO YA MAL | 2:00pm Virgin Bet Horris Hill Stakes (Group 3) | Dom’s Pick
Despite being beaten by Noble Truth at Doncaster, the change in conditions may favour Andrew Balding’s colt in the rematch here.
He finished third in what has proved to be a very strong novice on debut at Sandown back in July and the manner of his York success after that was very taking.
Only a nose separated a pair in Yorkshire so there’s hardly a huge mountain to overcome and the Hampshire yard have had their second-most wins for the season in this sphere.
NB: SISKANY | 2:35pm Virgin Bet St Simon Stakes (Group 3)
An obvious selection but Charlie Appleby’s gelding could still be a kind price at even money given what he’s achieved this campaign.
The three-year-old gets weight aplenty from his two nearest market rivals and was as good as ever when winning a valuable contest at the Newmarket Rowley Mile on his most recent start.
Max Vega ran a decent race in the Rose Bowl Stakes but his winless run extended to eight in the process.
