Timeform pick out their three best bets from Newmarket on Friday evening…
“…he certainly showed enough to suggest that this 4 lb higher mark ought to be within his reach…”
Timeform on Himself
BORN TO SPEND and Dame Nellie both remain with potential and could be the pair to focus on. The latter is clearly going the right way and isn’t passed over lightly, but marginal preference is for Ian Williams’ charge, who shaped with a good deal of encouragement on her Leicester reappearance, form which is working out well, and she is 1 lb lower now. Pepper Street, who may do better now upped in trip, and Point In Time complete the shortlist.
HIMSELF produced a career best to regain the winning thread over C&D two weeks ago, responding well to see off a thriving rival, that pair pulling away from the pack by the end. He certainly showed enough to suggest that this 4 lb higher mark ought to be within his reach, and with man of the moment James Doyle in the saddle once again, Richard Hannon’s charge is taken to follow up at the chief expense of course specialist Trulee Scrumptious, a winner here for the sixth time last week.
RAWDAA and Sharamm both appear to have bright futures ahead of them, particularly the former who went into many a notebook when second only to a very good prospect on debut here a couple of weeks ago. In receipt of 12 lb from Sharamm, Sir Michael Stoute’s filly looks the one to be on, 6 lb clear on ratings and with the prospect of more to come. Havana Magic took a step firmly in the right direction at Windsor last time and is best of the rest.
