Friday 10th October, 3.50pm, Newmarket
One of the big races from Newmarket tomorrow is the Betfred Ceasearwitch, which is a handicap held over two miles and two furlongs and one of the big handicaps of the season.
As many as 36 runners will head to post in this one, so it’s a seriously competitive event and there will be plenty of value around.
Low Key is an 8/1 favourite for David Pipe and Tom Marquand and it is always worth pointing out that the trainers who tend to do most of their work over the jumps do well in this race.
This horse was a winner of the Cesarewwitch Trial last time out and bolted up on that day. He gets a low weight here and has the excellent Tom Marquand taking three pounds off.
You’d expect there to still be plenty of improvement from this horse, who is still well handicapped on the Flat and could take all of the beating.
Quick Jack is then a 10/1 shot for the shrewd Tony Martin and the top jockey Ryan Moore.
The horse was well beaten in the Ebor last time out, but could enjoy this step up in trip here and is a horse with bags of quality.
He was a winner of the Galway Hurdle a couple of starts ago and the Ebor was the first time the horse was out of the top three since March 2013. He’s sure to run a big race here.
Tony Martin also has Heartbreak City here at 10/1 and this horse won really well at York back in August over the extended two miles.
This step up in trip wont be a problem for the horse and he has quite a low weight here too.
Sir Mark Prescott is a man to be feared in these staying handicaps and William Of Orange is at 12/1 with George Baker in the saddle. He was well beaten in pattern company last time out, but did run a big race over two and a half miles at Glorious Goodwood before that.
Willie Mullins has Renneti in here and deserves respect at 12/1, whereas Bayan runs for Gordon Elliot and can be backed at 16/1.
It’s then 20/1 about the likes of Oriental Fox, Nearly Caught, Moscato and High Street.
What’s interesting is the Mark Prescott’s stable jockey Luke Morris picks Moscato over the shorter priced William Of Orange.
It’s then 25/1 and over about the rest of the field.
In such a competitive race, we’ll give two horses a shot here. First of all, we think LOW KEY is the one to beat and should run a big race. Also, we quite like NOBLE SILK at 28/1, who ran well at Doncaster last time out and was just four lengths behind Clondaw Warrior at Ascot back in June. He looks a huge price.
Bring on a cracking race.
