Newmarket Races General Tracker
Newmarket’s NAP: HARROW | 2:45pm Tattersalls Stakes (Group 3) | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

After a brave display at Doncaster, Andrew Balding’s colt presents plenty of value and is surely still progressing the right way given the manner of his win in Yorkshire earlier this month.

Can Andrew Balding’s Harrow land Group 3 honours at Newmarket?

His form with John & Thady Gosden’s Reach For The Moon reads well and he looks capable of putting in a big display in a contest like this.

He has had plenty of runs under his belt for a two-year-old and any horse with Oisin Murphy aboard cannot be discounted.

NB: EILEENDOVER | 3:20pm Jockey Club Rose Bowl Stakes (Listed)

Given her National Hunt bumper form, Pam Sly’s young filly has probably been crying out for a true two-mile test and she won at the July Course last month.

Things weren’t as straightforward in the Park Hill thereafter but she’s back down into Listed class which will help her cause and she gets weight all around here.

She was rated 127 in the other code so there is still room for improvement in this sphere and she’s far less exposed than most of these.
