2.05pm Newmarket Tips & Betting Preview 22/07/2017

Thirteen runners go to post over seven furlongs, a race confined to juvenile fillies. Read on for our expert tip and runner by runner preview.

IN SUMMARY: After Jo’s Girl was withdrawn the attention immediately turned to Adam West’s promising BAMBINO LOLA. She gave her trainer his first 2yo success and looks well capable of following up. La Diva looks like an interesting debutante for the in-form Varian stable and could be worth watching. (Jo’s Girl Non-Runner replaced at 10am.)

1 CAPLA TEMPTRESS – One of two previous victors in the field, she needed every yard of this trip at Chelmsford to land the spoils. The bare form of that isn’t strong but the booking of David Egan takes five of the seven penalty pounds she carries back off. This is a stiffer test at the trip which looks sure to suit her, especially as her dam was a winner over the stiff mile at Salisbury.

2 JO’S GIRL – Ran better than the final position suggested when down the field in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot. She wasn’t able to catch the leaders over a much sharper seven furlongs than this at Brighton last time, so this track should suit better. There isn’t a lot of strength in depth here so she can make her experience count at a decent price.

3 RICHENZA – Showed plenty of promise on her debut, travelling strongly for the majority, but not forward enough to know what was required of her when she came under pressure. Her dam was placed over a mile in an Italian Group 1 as a juvenile so there should be better to come now she has that experience under her belt. Has a chance of making the frame.

4 BAMBINO LOLA – The other previous winner, she also caused a surprise, triumphing at 25/1. There was no fluke about that, the runner up who was beaten three and a half lengths won herself next time, while the eight length third would finish runner up next time. She is trainer Adam West’s only juvenile winner so far, belying her cheap price tag and has a solid chance.

5 LA DIVA – The first of three debutantes, she is a half sibling to ten individual winners including Connecticut, a mile and a half Group 2 winner in Turkey. She is by a speed influence so this trip looks the right starting point for Roger Varian who has won with five of his twelve juvenile participants this season.

6 SHE’SASTORM – Well beaten over six furlongs at this track on her debut. She didn’t show any immediate promise on that occasion so is going to have to have come on a lot in a fortnight to get involved.

7 TRICKSY SPIRIT – Hung away her chance on her debut here last Saturday over this trip. As with the majority of Mick Channon’s charges, she is going to step forward for that initial experience, but this is a quick turnaround for a juvenile and that is a concern.

8 JEDLITSKA – Another for the Channon yard making a quick return. She was beaten a long way on her debut on the 13th of July, quickly off the bridle, showing little encouragement for the immediate future.

9 SHEPHERD MARKET – Trainer Clive Cox has won with nine of the twenty individual juveniles he has introduced this season. Her half brother won on his racecourse debut back in 2015, also on the July course. Lacks the experience of a number of these but is a newcomer to watch in the market given the record of the yard this year.

10 SHOW OF FORCE – Not shown much in three runs so far, including at Ffos Las on Monday. She is likely to get a mark of about 60 off the back of that which suggests she might be able to find a nursery, but it would be a surprise if she could win a Newmarket maiden.

11 YAMUNA RIVER – Well bred, her dam was a half sibling to a number of winners including Group 2 scorer Temple Meads and Group 3 placed Sneak Preview. Her sire was a top sprinter in Australia, so it is slightly surprising that she is being started over seven furlongs, a trip she isn’t bred to stay.

12 GEMOLOGIST – Showed the benefit of her debut when much sharper on her second outing. She was third there, leading from early before outpaced a little late on. That was on good to soft but her dam won on firm so this quicker surface shouldn’t be a concern. Interesting if being allowed her own way out in front again.

13 LUCIFUGOUS – Only beaten a length at Chester last time, the winner has previously finished a short head second to Capla Temptress. That would give her an each way chance if she is able to up her game further, looking as if she will appreciate this stiffer test at the trip.
