Lucky Vega – 3.40 Newmarket (22/1 – bet365)
The first British Classic of the season gets underway on Saturday, with the day’s each-way bet coming from the 2000 Guineas.
Lucky Vega showed promise as a two-year-old under Jessica Harrington and could be a major player in the feature race at Newmarket at a big price.
The son of Lope De Vega got into a cracking rhythm in the Grade 1 Phoenix Stakes last season and pulled away comfortably when asked, winning by three-and-a-half lengths.
He was extremely unlucky in the run-in in the National Stakes but showed improvement when finishing half a length behind Supremacy in the Middle Park Stakes.
If he is at his best here, Lucky Vega could prove to be huge each-way value at 22/1.
