Newbury’s NAP: DANYAH | 3:30pm BetVictor Hungerford Stakes (Group 2) | Dom’s Pick
Owen Burrows’s gelding has enjoyed a fine season to date, which finally got underway with victory in the International Stakes at Ascot last month under William Buick, who rides rival Al Sulhail on Saturday.
Jim Crowley is back aboard on his Berkshire return and his previous Newbury exploits read well ahead of this Group 2 contest.
He’s finished third and second at the track, respectively, but the seven-furlong trip appears his optimum and the ultra-consistent son of Invincible Spirit is sure to be near at the finish once again.
NB: MASEKELA | 1:45pm Denford Stakes (Listed)The Chesham Stakes is proving a strong renewal this season and Andrew Balding's colt can continue the yard's good form here.
He finished a close second when upped in class to a Group 2 at Newmarket behind a potentially classy sort and looks sure to take the beating on that evidence against some lesser experienced rivals.
Bayside Boy can give the selection the most to think about.
