3:00 Newmarket Racing Tips (18th April)

Just a quick note for this EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes over 5f on good to soft going.  

The betting suggests four horses are of interest. As far as Group Horse goes, the only one of interest is Mark Johnston's Hard Forest. This American-bred daughter of Hard Spun cost 50,000G at the yearling sales. She was made favourite on debut at Newcastle, when starting 2/1f. She ran a sterling races until outpointed by Snazzy, who looks a fair juvenile for Charlie Fellows, in the silks of Highclere Throughbreds Ltd. The fifth, Deia Glory, ran with credit on her second start. 

The Newcastle race was Class 2 and win prize money of £12,000+. That indicates the race was better than average. Hard Spun will be ready to roll and should make the most of her experience. I'm not suggesting you go out and bet at 9/4 but if the Appleby or Haggas horses are seriously backed there may be some value in betting each way or part of an each way double if you have something you fancy.
