Another busy Friday with six flat cards at Newcastle ,Nottingham ,Newbury & three evening fixtures at Kempton, Newmarket & Catterick .Going concentrate on the 7 furlong claiming stakes at Newbury which looks quite decent claimer.
7F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 5 NEWBURY 2.35
ZOMERLUST :Bounced back to form on his last two starts winning back to back 6 furlong claimers at Hamilton & Ripon ,making all on both occasions .Had some decent form last season in good handicaps ,including winning 7 furlong class 4 handicap at Ayr and finishing close third in class 2 handicap at York in October off mark 86 .
VERDICT : Decent looking 7 furlong claimer with three main contenders ,Woodcote Place ,Zomerlust & Corporal Maddox.
Woodcote Place, in fair form this season ,finished fair second last time in 7 furlong claimer at Epsom only beaten short head behind Guilded Warrior ,looks fairly treated at weights and should be thereabouts ,though not easiest horse to win with having finished second 14 times.
Corporal Maddox is best in at the weights in this claimer and has contested some good handicaps this season ,including finishing good third in class 3 handicap at Chester off mark 88 .Should go well taking big drop in class and with K.Fallon riding for first time ,though is not most reliable type horse and hasn't won since October 2009.
ZOMERLUST is in top form winning his last two starts and looks to have plenty in his favour.Unbeaten in claiming races 2 from 2 the return to 7 furlongs is no problem having won over the distance three times .Seems to handle any ground conditions and at the prices looks good value at around 4-1.
