This mile handicap has attracted a field of 12 runners and includes recent Britannia Stakes runner-up FINEST SOUND , who should take all of the beating under Silvestre De Sousa.

He ran well in three starts last term, finishing third on each occasion, and improved further when he bolted up at Haydock last month.

He travelled well and put the race to bed in a matter of strides in the style of a very useful animal.

He then backed up that run with a second place at Royal Ascot, and reproducing that form would see him go very close.

At a bigger price, Into Faith  could run a nice race, with a comeback run now under his belt. He showed promise as a two-year-old, including when winning a valuable race at Longchamp at the end.

He ran fairly well on his seasonal debut at Newbury recently, but perhaps needed that run to hit top form.


The Fillies’ handicap over seven furlongs looks a good race on paper, and I think that the Simon and Ed Crisford-trained FANTAIL  is the selection to include in 4 To Win.

She bolted up on her debut at Chelmsford last November and looked way above average, earning herself a quote for the Oaks in the process.

She ran back at the Essex racecourse in early June and finished a good fourth in a competitive novice race.

It’s fair to say that the run-out has worked out. Dropped back in trip to seven furlongs, she could be allowed to bowl out from the front and could be too good to get caught.


The July Cup is the feature race of the day at Newmarket and it’s a cracking renewal.

Antepost favourite GOLDEN HORDE  deserves his place at the top of the betting, and if he’s improved from his impressive Commonwealth Cup success at Royal Ascot just over three weeks ago then he’s going to be tough to beat, especially with his 6lbs weight allowance.

He also has some top class two-year-old form in the book and could be another star sprinter for his yard, who won this race in 2017 with a very similar type of horse.

Threat won two Group Two races as a two-year-old and ran very well on his comeback run in the St James's Palace at Ascot. If the drop in trip brings further improvement, he’s got the class to go very well.


This is not the best Bunbury Cup I’ve ever seen, but it looks wide open and a few are worth a mention.

At a huge price, the two-year-old form of NO NONSENSE  appeals, including his 4l second to Calyx at Ascot last May.

His trainer David Elsworth rarely has two-year-olds who are forward enough to win two races, so the fact that he did it in 2018 suggests he has a bit of class.

He is still lightly-raced, which could be down to the fact that he has needed time. I wouldn’t think we’ve seen the best of him and a step up in trip could be what he’s after.

Tomfre was a good winner on soft ground last season, and he won’t need to improve on what he’s shown so far to be competitive. He was a good second – only beaten a short head – at Sandown recently and looks like he is the type of improving horse that could win this race.
