August 13 Shortlist NEWBURY.jpg
1.55 Betfred 'Supports Jack Berry House' EBF Stallions Maiden Fillies' Stakes (4) 6f8y

Top Rated:
105p 13. PROMISING Richard Hannon Sean Levey
91P 8. HATHFA
80p 5. FOXCATCHER Clive Cox Adam Kirby

Analyst's Verdict:
Promising showed form good enough to win most maidens when runner-up on debut at last week and this highly-engaged filly ought to take all the beating. Hathfa really caught the eye on her first start at earlier this month and is open to any amount of improvement, while Contentment makes most appeal of the newcomers and any market support would look significant.
2.30 Denford Stud Washington Singer Stakes (Listed) (1) 7f

Top Rated:
114 2. FRANKUUS Adam Kirby
113 4. AMABILIS Ralph Beckett Pat Smullen
112 3. MR SCARAMANGA Richard Hannon Sean Levey

Analyst's Verdict:
Escobar is the one who appeals as having the most potential after his impressive win in a C&D maiden last month so is just preferred to Mr Scaramanga and Frankuus.
3.05 Betfred Geoffrey Freer Stakes (Group 3) (1) 1m5f61y

Top Rated:
125 1. KINGS FETE Pat Smullen
123 4. HUMPHREY BOGART Richard Hannon Sean Levey
121 2. BATTERSEA Roger Varian

Analyst's Verdict:
The tough and reliable Humphrey Bogart should stay and will appreciate this drop in class, so is the value option over market-leader Kings Fete, who looks a typical late bloomer for his trainer but has a penalty to carry.
3.40 Betfred TV Ladies Day Handicap (3) 7f

Top Rated:
109p 15. DOLLAR REWARD
108 1. CORNWALLVILLE Adam Kirby
107 5. VON BLUCHER

Analyst's Verdict:
Improving 3-y-os Dollar Reward and Von Blucher hail from powerful yards and look the obvious ones, the former narrowly preferred. Cornwallville will appreciate the return to 7f and may prove the pick of their elders.
4.10 Betfred Hungerford Stakes (Group 2) (1) 7f

Top Rated:
129 4. HOME OF THE BRAVE Jim Crowley
128 1. CONVEY Pat Smullen
124+ 6. MARKAZ Paul Hanagan

Analyst's Verdict:
There wasn't much between Home of The Brave and Convey in the Jury Stakes at back in May and the pair look set to dominate again, the former taken to confirm the placings. Markaz looks best of the others.
4.45 Betfred 'Celebrating Aiden Kelly's 81st Birthday' Handicap (4) 1¼m6y

Top Rated:
98p 3. MUZDAWAJ William Haggas Paul Hanagan
97p 6. WAPPING David Lanigan Pat Smullen
95p 4. VINCENT'S FOREVER

Analyst's Verdict:
Likely to be dominated by the 3-y-os, but separating them isn't easy. Wapping lacks a recent run, but his maiden win in October worked out well, so he is just preferred, though Muzdawaj, Vincent's Forever and Maestro Mac will all have their supporters.
5.20 Betfred Ladies Handicap (Lady Amateur Riders ) (4) 1½m5y

Top Rated:
109+ 7. COSMEAPOLITAN Alan King Miss S. Brotherton
108 1. WHINGING WILLIE Gary Moore Miss Hayley Moore (3)
107 4. SAMTU Marjorie Fife Miss Becky Smith (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Cosmeapolitan shaped quite well considering he seemed ill at ease on the track when fourth at last month, and with this slightly longer trip promising to suit, he gets the nod under Serena Brotherton. Recent course winner Onorina and Soul Intent may well give Alan King's charge most to do.
