Kirby and Profitable to be exactly that on Future Champions Day

| 16.10.2014

Before the older horses can strut their stuff at Ascot on Saturday, we have a chance to witness some of the stars of the future at Newmarket on Future Champions Day.

Ivawood (4/5) in the Middle Park Stakes and Estidhkaar (4/5) in Dewhurst are the two of the most impressive juveniles to take to the track this season and it would take a brave man to bet against them.

But with these two-year-old races often throwing up a shock or two, we have scoured the card to pick out three bigger price charges that could be worth an each way interest at HQ.

And remember, our 4/1 offer applies to the first five races on the card at the Rowley Mile.

So just back a winner at 4/1 or bigger in any live Channel 4 race and receive a free bet to the value of your stake, up to £25!*

Escrick – 16/1 – 1:50 Dubai European Breeders’ Fund Fillies’ Nursery Handicap

In what looks a majorly open race, a chance simply has to be taken with David Simcock’s filly.

She was beaten 2½l into sixth in a valuable Doncaster handicap last time out off the same mark she runs off today. There were three of today’s rivals narrowly in front of her that day, but reconvene battle worse off at the weights.

With a win on soft ground at Lingfield already on her record, she will do what could be the difference over the course of this weekend’s racing, and handle the testing conditions.

Profitable – 16/1 – 2:25 Cornwallis Stakes

Clive Cox’s juvenile hasn’t lived up to his name recently, when just touched off at short odds on his last three runs.

He bumps into old foe Squats here, and slightly worse terms than when he was beaten a neck on two occasions by William Haggas’ horse, but is worth an interest at three times the price.

The first experience of soft ground could be the difference, with his sire Invincible Spirit responsible for some fairly useful types with give in the ground lately such as Moonlight Cloud, Kingman and Mayson.

Together Forever – 10/1 – 3:25 Dubai Fillies Mile

Having progressed with each run, there could be more to come from Aidan O’Brien’s daughter of Galileo.

She showed her liking for give in the ground when running out a nice winner of a Listed race at the Curragh on ground described as ‘Yielding’, something some rivals are yet to do.

She had Prix Marcel Boussac winner, and current 2015 Oaks favourite Found just 3/4l in front of her back in August, and could well spring a surprise on the Rowley Mile.
