Roger Varian to Unleash Farnham at Newbury

You know the flat season is well and truly underway when trackers start coming through for the first big meeting of the season. 

Newmarket kicks off next week with some cracking racing, first off we have the Group 3 Nell Gwyn Stakes on Tuesday, followed by the Group 3 Craven Stakes on Wednesday (Can’t believe I will be in work for both). 

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though, if we look at Friday's meeting at Newbury there is also what looks to be a few decent races and I will be taking a keen interest in what I think could be a potentially nice horse, will she win on Friday? Well, that's a different story, but I hope my trackers can at least show a bit of promise. 

2.00 West Berkshire Brewery ‘ Newcomers’ EBF Maiden Stakes. 

This looks a 2-year old race full of potential here but I will just mention my trackers. As you may know *Making History was entered for £3.752 race at Windsor on Monday but bypassed that to run here, I always make a note of S Bin Suroor first few runners of the season, as over the years they are normally of a high standard and Making History could be another to add to the collection, this Godolphin bred Dubawi colt will be hoping to pick up the £6.469 prize money, the negative is the trainer doesn’t have the best record here, so I will be keeping an eye on the market. 

Barry Magoo is my next one for trainer Adam West, now the positive here is that this 2-year-old colt had an entry for the Brocklesby at one time, but the negative is he didn’t have a 2-year-old winner last season. Now the next one I know nothing about, only he’s trained by Clive Cox, but with a name like Klopp Of The Kopp he’s a winner already. 

5.50 Coin Valley Stud Bridget Maiden Fillies’ Stakes 

This looks a great race, but the horse I've been waiting for a while for is Farnham, it has seemed an age since I got an email last year off Group Horse noting this bay Filly by Farhh as a dark horse to look out for, owned by Clipper Logistics and trained by Roger Varian, she was bought at the Tattersall Sales for 110,000 gns. Why have I been looking forward to seeing her run? Last season she was potentially one of the better 2-year-olds in the Varian yard with a host of Group entries including the Group 2 Lowther Stakes, the Fillies’ Mile Stakes(Group 1) and the Group 2 Rockfel Stakes. 

I do wonder why Roger Didn’t run her in any, could be many reasons but hopefully, she has strengthened up over the winter and can fulfil her potential. 

Also, looking through the stats of sire Farhh, I would think Farnham will act on the forecast soft ground. 

So, two nice races coming up with some potentially good horses on show, but as always I will be checking the market before I think about having a bet. 

Betting Review: Just a quick update on my bets this week. Well, I got a tip from Sam (@sdyates85) on Sunday and while picking the kids Grand National winnings up thought I would have a bet on his tip, Oh my word Gone Platinum scooted home by 4 lengths, probably the easiest winner I have had for a while (thanks mate). Next was Lexington Quest who I had as a tracker and to be honest wasn’t going to bet but the discipline went out the window again and Lexi ran in snatches and disappointed, but I will keep him in my trackers for another day, hopefully, he can improve next time out. 

Thanks for reading and good luck this week if you have a bet. *Making History None Runner.

  1. I think Klopp Of The Kop will run better in future. A very nice-looking horse. A few of these look decent specimens. Also, I think Farnham will be winning very soon.

  2. Will be keeping an eye out for Farnham for sure.

  3. Many homework on the continual hunt along with offstage on the road to winning. Definitely not attached, simple to-fall as a result of wayside; And not investigation, afterward into a path travel toward the black. 트레이딩벳 먹튀
