Get On The Newmarket Duo

Make it Menadati at 10/1

Menadati has caught the-eye in his last two runs and looks good value at 10/1 in the 4.10 at Newmarket.

Peter Hiatt’s gelding shaped with bags of promise when fourth to Ancient Greece at Chepstow on his comeback run after a lengthy lay-off and then had no luck in running last time out in a decent handicap at Goodwood.

Slowly away that day he was keeping on nicely from the rear when badly hampered approaching the last and was eventually allowed to come home in his own time to finish 10th of 13 to Nazreef.

Although eventually beaten over 10 lengths he ran far better than that suggests and the handicapper has subsequently dropped him another 2lb to a mark of 73.

To me he has shown enough in those runs to suggest he is handicapped to go in again, and being lightly raced there is every chance of a him finding a little bit of improvement.

Indeed he was rated 74 when winning as a juvenile for David Lanigan and went on to finish fourth to the very useful Pisco Sour in a Windsor handicap off a mark of 80.

Therefore if his new handler can get him back to his best there is little doubt that he is well enough treated to go very close in this afternoon’s contest.

At 10/1 he looks overpriced and makes plenty of each-way appeal.

Mysterytour looks Magical at 12/1

Magicalmysterytour has plummeted in the weights and at 12/1 looks worth chancing to score and overdue success in the 5.20 at Newmarket today.

Willie Musson’s gelding found 1m 5f around Bath’s tight turns totally against him last time out when staying on to finish a never nearer 8th of 14 to Blazing field having previously shaped as if ready to go in again.

That run came over 2m at York where ran on really well under tender handling to finish a 1 1/2 length fifth of 12 to Bow To No One off today’s mark of 77.

He is now 6lb below his last win and that win came at this track last August after which he went on to finish second at Doncaster off a mark of 90.

Although now an eight-year-old he is too well treated to ignore in this line-up, and I am sure that his shrewd handler will get a win out of him before the season is out.

At 12/1 there is no doubt that he is overpriced on his best form, and at those odds he is definitely worth an each-way interest.
