What’s happening guys and dolls! As promised I have prepared a runner by runner guide to the Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury for you. Hopefully it will help you to narrow down your own selections. At the end of the guide, I will also give you my verdict on how I think the race will pan out and hopefully we can land a big Saturday prize!
Here is a fantastic offer for you from William Hill - if you bet £10, you’ll get £30 in free bets to use on any sport you choose.
The Camden Colt started his race career with plenty of promise and may have a bit of improvement still to come, but winning this will be very difficult off top weight. He was slightly hampered last time out in a five-runner race, but still finished less than a length behind in third. He drops back to five furlongs for the first time since his debut here but has a lot to find if he’s to win here
Instant Recall represents the second string for the Karl Burke team. However, he’s got plenty to find to be competitive here based on what we’ve seen of him so far.
Mr Baloo has been consistent in all of his four starts so far, but he’ll need to improve a massive amount to get competitive here.
Son Of Corballis is a very likeable type, who had two really good runs either side of his Sandown flop and made virtually all to win last time out. He runs as if there is more to come, despite both of his wins being small margin victories. I think he could be well up for a race of this nature and he holds strong credentials here.
Relief Rally is a lovely filly who finished a head-bobbing second in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot and has to be the one to beat here. She showed plenty of speed, remains well-treated amongst her rivals and gets the benefit of a good draw too. She has shown the most natural ability in this race and should still be open to more for her top connections.
Although Words Of Darcy let himself down in the Windsor Castle, he is entitled to improve on the fourth start of his career and I think he will be well suited to Newbury. He does have a little bit to prove on the back of his Royal Ascot run, but if he can stay on a straighter line this time from a midfield draw, then the possibilities are definitely there for him and he’s not a bad each way shout
Ziggys Phoenix has plenty of experience and is a nice horse for sure, but he has lots to find in this sphere. That said, I wouldn’t be surprised if he caught a place, but he doesn’t hold winning credentials.
Bobsleigh is a very talented horse, who finished only three lengths behind River Tiber in the Coventry and won two very good races prior to that at Brighton and Epsom. He won’t mind the drop back to five furlongs and is pretty well treated here, He’s also got a good draw, which makes him an interesting runner here.
I don’t give Relentless Warrior too much chance at all here, he has way too much to find if his paper form is anything to go by.
I actually really like Liv My Life and she’s a lovely type, but I fear she just falls a little bit short on the class angle here. Her trainer does have a very good record in this race though, so she is not a forlorn hope.
Beenham has the benefit of Oisin Murphy on board here, which is sure to enhance her chance somewhat. On her penultimate start, she showed plenty of ability, which makes me think she didn’t necessarily give it her best last time out. She still remains a little unexposed here and could well outrun her odds.
Call Glory improved significantly to win last time out at Goodwood and I would give him a squeak here for the places. Charlie Hills is a trainer I respect a lot and I think he feels this colt has more to give, especially if he can build on his latest outing. He may not be too far away at a big price.
Dapperling is a filly who has seemingly improved with every run and she will probably improve again here, but I don’t think she will have the beating of a few of these.
La Guardia is a beautifully bred filly, who had a very good win at Goodwood on her penultimate start. Even though she was slowly away in the Chesham last time out, she’s clearly better than that and I think she has a lot more class than meets the eye right now. The draw may have gone against her, but with Kevin Stott in the saddle, she may get away with it providing she is out of the gates quicker this time.
Payment In Kind ran with a lot of promise on debut, but will need to show plenty more here to beat his rivals.
Rosario was very smart on debut, showing plenty of speed from a prominent position and going on to beat Heed The Call. Judging from that, he’s likely to improve further and I think he comes here with an each way chance
Unfortunately, Jolly Sailor is way out of his depth at this level and probably needs a head start.
Juniper Berries finished behind Relief Rally in the Queen Mary, but she was plenty classy in there and other than the favourite, represents a really good chance for connections here. Plenty to like about her if she can find a few lengths once more.
Crooked Crown deserves to line up here but she has to show more than what she has so far. Improvement required to get seriously competitive. Plenty of speed in her pedigree.
Heed The Call definitely improved after finishing runner-up behind Rosario, but in my opinion, she is going to need a fair bit more to win this one. A likeable type nonetheless.
I’m actually quite taken by Fengari and I’m surprised she isn’t a touch shorter in the betting, but I’ll think she’d need more here than she’s got to give.
The Super Sprint is going to be a great race to watch and here’s how I see it panning out. For me, Bobsleigh is the most interesting contender and his Coventry form with River Tiber gives a him a really good chance here under Charlie Bishop. Relief Rally is a deserving favourite here. She is a lovely sort and, in my opinion, offers the best form in this field.
The two at big prices I like are La Guardia and Call Glory, who are both fantastic each way shots, especially if you can get four places.
1. Bobsleigh 5/1
2. Relief Rally 6/4
3. La Guardia 20/1
4. Call Me Glory 50/1
Thanks for tuning in once again I appreciate the support, and good luck with your bets.
