Firmament EW  12/1 BetVic/Hills
David O'Meara is in decent format the minute and saddles the useful Firmament in this competitive handicap. He is C/D winner last year and has improved a lot since then hence his much higher mark now. He goes well on soft ground and was a  good third in Listed company last time which will put him spot on for this.

8.00 Newmarket: Class 5 Fillies' Handicap, 1 mile

You have to take note whenever Charlie Appleby and William Buck arrive with lightly raced individuals to the party. The yard is going very well at the moment and they look to have another big chance with Pure Shores here in this big field though not overly competitive race.

Pure Shores makes her Handicap debut after three relatively decent performances in maiden company. Particularly the two starts this year over 10f where eye-catching in my view. 

Both times she pulled very hard in the early parts of the race. Despite this keenness she travelled like the winner on both occasions, though same story in the finish: the did not get home.

That might be more down to the energy wasted early on than the trip as on pedigree that looks fine. Still the drop to 1m in a big field with better pace should suit down to the ground. Softish ground - on pedigree at least - seems no problem.

Her opening mark of 76 could easily undervalue her true talent given this will only be her second start on turf and she ran much better than the bare form suggests at Sandown last month when sixth behind winner Serenada, who to some extend gave this form some substance in the Musidora Stakes on Wednesday afternoon.

4.05 York

HERE COMES WHEN @ 12/1 Betfair SB

This guys record on ground Soft or worse reads 111236, the 6th came when he was drawn in the car park at Chester (8 of 8), also 4 of those runs were in Group races.  Today he runs off his lowest mark for 3 years.  Today his only his second run in hcap company for almost 3 years, the last time was at Ascot in the Autumn where he finished 10th but he was only beaten 4L that day from an impossible position and was hampered on the way, that was also over Ascot's mile which is probably as far as he wants to go and off 2lb higher.

Newmarket 8.00 Rinaria (8/1 bv)

The form of this filly's last time out win at Beverley doesn't look up to much, but Karle Burke has chosen to send her all the way down to headquarters for a £4000 handicap, which is right at the end of the day.  He has also booked Jordan Vaughan to partner her and the combination has a good record in handicaps here at newmarket, with their 6 runners todate resulting in 3 winners and a place for a win and place profit of £20.75 and £26.09 respectively
