‘Wild Wild West’ comes to Newbury Racecourse, as Summer Evening Series continues

Racing gets underway at 5.50pm as a big field of 14 tackle the novice stakes before the action comes to a close with the class five handicap at 8.45pm.

The opener (5.50) is the six furlong novice stakes for two-year-old’s and features the biggest field of the meeting as 14 runners are set to head to the start line.

Queue Dos did well when finishing midfield in a Newmarket Listed contest a couple of weeks back and dropping down in class here, should be bang in there to get the victory.

Of her rivals, Ellaria Sand for trainer Archie Watson could give her the most trouble, fourth of 14 on debut at Yarmouth when sluggish away from the traps but finished well.

Race two on the card (6.25) sees 11 runners take on the six furlong novice stakes in class three with the two-year-old’s taking centre stage.

Fourth in the Chesham at Royal Ascot a couple of weeks ago, Brian sets the standard having improved on each of his three starts so far for trainer Sylvester Kirk.

The main danger comes from Stapleford Park, who found only one improving type too good on his racecourse debut three weeks ago, with the winner there subsequently winning again so that second looks a strong piece of form.

Eleven runners will tackle race three on the Newbury card at 7.00, a class five handicap for runners three-years-old and upwards.

Course and distance winner Concierge is returning to six furlongs and that could be of benefit to Michael Attwater’s runner having won here before.

He’s expected to be a big price so further up in the market, Moe’s Legacy could be worth considering having won at Salisbury in June and finished third in a decent handicap at Bath last time out.

A one mile and two furlong novice stakes marks race four of the evening (7.35) and nine runners will go to post for this class four contest.

Preference here heads to Vanish for trainer Owen Burrows, a Galileo colt who produced a very promising course and distance second on debut in April and looks ripe for improvement having switched yards from Harry Charlton.

The penultimate race of the evening is a class five handicap, again over the one mile and two furlong distance with ten runners taking it on (8.10).

Tipsy Tiger arrives off a fine second at Leicester on his last spin and the soft conditions at Newbury should suit the William Stone-trained three-year-old.

Giselles Defence was a recent winner at Epsom and a second at Beverley to follow up so should be there or thereabouts once again.

Finally, the card comes to a close with a one mile and five furlong handicap in class five (8.45) with preference in the finale heading to Al Khawaneej River for trainer Marcus Tregoning, with the form of his third at Windsor last time out working out well and is one that looks set to improve here.
