3:00 Newbury Racing Tips (21st July)

NEWBURY 3.00 (8.5)
This is cracking Group 3 race with 10 runners, if the going is g/f, so hopefully they don't water it too much or there's any rain, I can split the race in 2 halves of possible lays and possible backs, the 5 to look at in my speed figures order from 5th to 1st are Never Back Down, Hey Jonesy, Equilatreal, Projection and Mythmaker. The 1st 3 of them are 3 year olds who could improve further so I'm not completely sure how to proceed because if i had to narrow it down to 1 or 2 horses it would be Projection 7/2 and Equilatreal 10/3 the 1st 2 in the betting, so maybe Hey Jonesy 10/1 is the each way value bet in the race.
NEWMARKET 3.25 (8.0)
Only 8 runners with 3 I can discount, my 3rd top rated is Mr Wagyu, 1 of 3 aged 3 running here and could be the one to set the pace from stall 8 and then not many should get involved, Englishman is my 2nd top rated but this one doesn't want the going to be too fast for it to show its absolute best but my top rated is the 3 year old ZAIN HANA 7/2 who should get a good tow into the race from stall 7 and then stay on the stronger at the finish and this trainer has a 22% strike rate at this course.

Zain Hana 7/2 2nd
HAYDOCK 8.30 (7.4)
Quite a nice race for class 5, 11 with 5 that have been known to lead and my top 3 are all front running types,Lambrini Legacy is 3rd top in stall 5, I'm not sure if the draw will make a difference but if anything it does seem to favour those drawn high, CAMPION 12/1 is 2nd best and this 3 year old is drawn in stall 10 so could gain control against the rails, it has to be a selection because of the draw and at the price an each way bet looks best, my top rated *BROADHAVEN HONEY 9/2 is drawn in stall 2 which might not be ideal, so 2 bets to cover both sides of the draw.

Campion 25/1 4th
