Newmarket – 8th October: DOM’S NAP + NB | Friday’s 2 Best Bets

Our two best bets for Newmarket’s card this Friday



Newmarket Racecourse General
Newmarket’s NAP: PEARL GLORY | 2:25pm Godolphin Lifetime Care Oh So Sharp Stakes (Fillies’ Group 3) | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

An intriguing Group 3 and the nod goes to the daughter of Cotai Glory who proved her worth at this level with a fine second at Salisbury last time out.

William Buick partners Pearl Glory for the first time at Newmarket on Friday

She’d won her previous two starts before that and there should be more to come over seven furlongs with William Buick aboard.

Perfect News handled this track well last time out but was way behind the selection in Wiltshire in September.

NB: MOSHAAWER | 4:10pm bet365 Old Rowley Cup Handicap

After running a brilliant race in the Melrose, Roger Varian’s representative could be the one to chance here now 5lb higher.

Can Jim Crowley claim the Old Rowley Cup on Friday afternoon?

He has closely tied-in form with Derby and St Leger second Mojo Star and he arrives here fresh, seemingly targeted at this contest.

The drop back in trip isn’t a concern for the son of Frankel and he’s fared well on stiff tracks before, so this race should be right up his street off a fairly lowly mark of 98.
