8.10pm Newmarket Tips & Betting Preview 27/07/2018

Elegiac was a front-running winner at Hamilton earlier this month and was not disgraced in a handicap at Ascot last time out. He warrants respect now dropped in grade, but he is now coming up against the upwardly mobile SLEEPING LION who is preferred today. James Fanshawe’s charge was constantly denied a run at Newbury last time out but once in the clear, he pulled clear under minimal pressure to win by just under a length. The handicapper has raised him just five pounds for that success, which looks potentially lenient, and he should be difficult to stop in his bid for the hat-trick this evening.
