6:30 Newbury Winning Race Tips (2nd July) PALMERS - THE STRETCH TENT COMPANY APPRENTICE HANDICAP (CLASS 5) (3yo+ 0-70)

An eight runner apprentice race so stakes have to be kept on the low side, half the field, Dreams Of Glory, Swendab, Alpha Delta Whiskey, Speed The Plough having been known to lead before so it could be a fast run race and may set it up for a finishing type, my top spot goes to the top weighted HEAD SPACE 12/1 who can either track the leaders or be held up and hopefully will prove the stronger close home. And at the price and as long as there are still eight runners at the off the price says its got to be an each way bet. 

7:25 Epsom - Nine runners here in a nice class three race over six furlongs, the three year old Geological has led before and may either need a longer trip or it could be a hidden danger if it gets to the front and dictates things but I cant see that happening with two other front runners in the race but neither of them, Supplicant and Munfallet are my idea of the winner here, I've got Shingle down as my third top rated from its best time at Windsor this year, Iseemist is my second top rating from a time recorded at Ayr which is a very different type of course to this one but the top rated SWISS CROSS 7/1 recorded its best time over this course and distance in 2014 and that is a plus sign in its chances also its best run of this year was also at this course and distance so hopefully it will run another big race here again.
