2:35 Newbury Racing Tips (18th May)

Eric Winner
I love these top class 2 handicap sprints when the going is good or faster, I've got negatives against 4 horses so i will lay those, there's 3 at the bottom of the handicap that look out of their depth but 2 have done good times when being towed along in a fast run race and in their own class can set the pace and Ashpan Sam recorded a fast time at Epsom last year. The selection is POET'S VANITY 12/1 who ran its best race at Haydock in 2017, it had a run recently on the all-weather, hopefully to get it fully fit for this race but a word of caution in that the trainer Andrew Balding cant buy a winner lately, that obviously has to change at some point and I'm hoping if it will happen here if not before but it does mean my stakes wont be at full strength.

Poet's Vanity 12/1 7th
A poor looking apprentices race where I'm not really sure where the early pace will come from unless its Poets Princess, so i will put forward DANECASE 7/1 as the tentative selection as it usually likes to track the leaders and it can then cover any moves and stay on the stronger at the finish but my stakes will be kept low.

Danecase 9/1 5th
A class 5 race with 11 runners and a couple of front runners, there's is also four 3 year olds that could improve and others that I've not got enough data about to be completely sure of what they can or cannot do so any stakes will be kept low, Aprovado who is my 4th top rated is one of those possible pace setters, Ninjago is usually held up for a run and Uncle Charlie usually tracks the leaders are joint 2nd top but my top rated COSMIC CHATTER 7/1 is the other front runner and if getting to the front could? prove very hard to catch and the price is quite tempting as it looks decent value.
