15:35 Newbury – Daban (BEST ODDS 9/1 with William Hill)
This horse was third in the 1000 Guineas and only finished a couple of lengths behind Winter that day. In my opinion, that is some of the best form that the horses in this race has to offer. This race also sees a return to Daban’s optimum trip. He was rather disappointing over seven furlongs last time out, but he wasn’t too far away from the winner. This horse also has one of the best trainers in John Gosden in his corner, which is a massive plus. This ground is a little quicker than what Daban is used to, but I think that he’ll take to it like a duck to water. He’s a big enough price, and there are enough horses in the field, that backing him each-way could be a lucrative possibility. There’s some really class racing to be found at Newbury today, and I think that this horse is going to be one of the highlights of the day.
