Another fairly quiet day, though with the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster and the return of Master Minded at Aintree, tomorrow promises to be a much busier and a highly informative day.
More of that tomorrow and, as for today, Clive Cox’s Forest Row (1:20) is worthy of support in Newbury’s opening maiden.
The Cockney Rebel colt has a 161-day absence to overcome, so some positive market vibes would be viewed upon as a positive, though he was well supported ahead of his racecourse debut, indicating he is well-regarded at home.
That debut came at this track back in May, when he was just a couple of lengths off Champagne Stakes winner, Trumpet Major, who finished third. Fourth home, St Barths, has also franked the form by winning a Leicester maiden next time, before he finished third to Power in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot.
A reproduction of that effort could be good enough in what could be the weakest of the juvenile maidens on the card.
