The 6 furlong Conditions race at Newmarket brings together a number of runners with varying handicap marks, and although 2 year olds have really held sway in recent years, it is two 3 year olds in the form of Justice Good and Mobsta who are at the front of the market. Preference is for the latter, who looks to have more to give back to 6 furlongs.
Mobsta might have only run 6 days ago, but he has the looks of a horse who is robust and can handle plenty of action on the racecourse. A close up 4th over 7 furlongs at Doncaster may not look the best on paper, but plenty of encouragement can be gleaned from that run and with just 5 starts under his belt, there looks to be plenty of scope left. Hit the front just before 1 furlong out at Doncaster, but wasn’t the strongest in the finish, suggesting that a drop back to 6 furlongs should suit. In truth, the son of Bushranger’s optimal distance probably lies somewhere between 6-7 furlongs, and the stiff Newmarket finish should bring out the best in him. Is rated 100, 3lbs behind Justice Good, but conditions could favour Channon’s runner.
Justice Good started last season as a really bright 2 year old, winning 3 races before finishing a creditable 4th at Royal Ascot. Since then however, his form has taken a dip, and the son of Acclamation hasn’t hit the same heights as a 3 year old. Has subsequently dropped from a mark of 109 down to 103 and this is definitely his easiest chance yet. With that being said, the horse looks a speedster and a testing 6 furlongs in good to soft ground may prove to stretch his stamina. Here at Sports Betting Online, we are hoping that Mobsta can outstay the favourite.
7.40 Wolverhampton – Seychelloise
Seychelloise nearly stole the race last time out when kicking on the home turn and despite being up 4lbs, she has a great chance of going in again. Rosie Jessop takes off a valuable 3lbs and Sir Mark Prescott’s 3 year old should be able to conserve more energy from stall 4.
On penultimate start, Seychelloise went off a relatively unfancied 17.0 shot. She won with authority off a mark of 63, and tried to capitalise off a 6lb penalty when going off a 2.50 favourite 17 days ago. Maybe did too much too soon, and paid for those exertions late, losing out by just 1 length. Likely to sit handy and should strike again on the home turn. This race is weak, and she should be able to get back to winning ways.
