Emotionless to make the bookies weep at Dewhurst

Emotionless to make the bookies weep at Dewhurst

The promising two-year-old can confirm his place at the top of the 2000 Guineas market, but Air Force Blue is also in contention

There are two exciting meetings at Newmarket and York on Saturday, with one of the biggest two-year-old races of the season – Dewhurst – taking place at the former.

The horse who appeals most is Emotionless.

This promising two-year-old currently holds an undefeated record after two easy successes – the latest coming in a Group 2 – and it seems he has all it takes to make the step into top-class company.

He has been extremely popular in the betting leading up to the race and is now at evens. This makes him favourite in the betting.

This does appear to be a two-horse race and the main rival will be Air Force Blue, who is second favourite at 6/4.

He has already won two Group 1 races in good fashion so should provide Emotionless with stiff competition, though he is clearly beatable given his defeat at Royal Ascot.

Low weight gives Bayan a great chance

While we might be more accustomed to seeing Gordon Elliott train horses under National Hunt rules, he has a major chance of claiming a big flat prize.

The horse he pins his hopes on is 16/1 chance Bayan. There are many positives to this horse including his low weight, while he saddles bottom weight in the extremely competitive Cesarewitch.

Bayan has experience of big handicaps over hurdles, which will stand him in good stead in this race.

One notable performance was his win in the 2014 Ladbroke and if he can convert such handicap form on to the flat then he is a great price.

An obvious contender will be 7/1 favourite Low Key, who won well last time and had some of Saturday’s rivals behind him.

The nature of that victory shows he has more to offer on the flat. Another positive is promising young jockey Tom Marquand taking a handy 3lbs off his back.

One rival behind Low Key last time was Mascato and with Luke Morris booked he could well be the pick of the Sir Mark Prescott horses.

At 22/1 the price looks too big for a horse who only finished seven lengths behind Low Key last time. Mascato is weighted 7lbs better off this time, when Marquand’s claim is taken into account, which could prove valuable.

Consistent Suzi could finally land a good prize

York hosts the ever competitive Sprint Trophy on Saturday and a horse who has form in similar races is Suzi’s Connoissuer.

Priced at 14/1 this consistent gelding could finally get his head in front.

And with big-field experience coming in races such as the Portland, the Stewards Cup and the Banbury Cup he should not be fazed by the 20 runners on Saturday.

A popular horse in the betting is 6/1 favourite George Bowen, whose credentials are obvious given his very close second in the Ayr Silver Cup last time.

He was just beaten by Tatlisu that day but should be taken to reverse that form. However, for such a competitive race, 6/1 seems too short to be backing.

Another horse with potential at bigger odds could be Moonraker, who has only had nine starts in his career so far and should have plenty of improvement left in him.

At 16/1 there could be some each-way value.

There are, however, some negatives surrounding this horse including his poor run on his only ever start at Newmarket and his failure to go on since his win first time out this season.
