15:00 Newmarket – Lightening Quick (BEST ODDS 5/1 with bet365)
I always preach caution when the idea of backing horses with little form in big races comes up. Lightening Quick looks a top prospect though. There are ten runners in this field and at this price, you’d get your stake back if this horse was to place in three, and I am confident that she will. That maiden run at Leopardstown was supremely impressive and classy. It was also at the same trip that she’ll run over here. The ground might be a little quicker this time around, but I have the feeling that she’ll improve for having had that first run. Normally a horse such as this might go off at a double figure price, so it’s interesting to note the market’s confidence in this filly.
