Newbury: ZIKANY | 4:40pm Read Ryan Moore On Betting.Betfair Handicap | Dom’s Pick
Ahead of flat racing’s greatest week, Royal Ascot, which gets underway on Tuesday afternoon, this code of the sport focuses on the other side of Berkshire and Newbury’s Thursday card.
Our best bet of the day is Sir Michael Stoute’s Zikany following his win at Windsor last time out after being upped in trip for the first time.
He’s up to the mile-and-a-half distance for the first time here and could be tough to beat with Ryan Moore in the saddle.
Ed Walker’s Reina Del Mar could rank as chief threat but her best form to date has seemingly arrived in softer conditions.
