3.55 Newbury 1m Lockinge Stakes Group One (Sat 14th May)

The recent good run continued on Wednesday, with Magical Memory winning nicely in Duke of York stakes at recommended 11-4.That's 9 winners from 21 bets over last 10 weeks, for profit of £1474 to recommended stakes .

Hopefully the good run can continue on Saturday,were we have decent looking card from Newbury, featuring the the group one Lockinge Stakes at 3.55 .

13 runners declared for 1 mile Lockinge Stakes at 3.55 , on ground described as good/soft soft in places .The three main contenders are Belardo , Limato & Toormore .

BELARDO : Won 4 out 14,including winning the G1 Dewhurst at Newmarket as 2-Y-0.Showed some useful form last season,including finishing 2ND in G1 Queen Elizabeth stakes at Ascot in October.Slightly disappointing last time when finishing 4TH behind Toormore in BET365 Mile .Conditions will suit,though has bit to find with Toormore .

LIMATO :Useful sort ,winning 6 out 9 ,including winning the G2 7F Park Stakes at Doncaster in impressive style in September .Also finished good 2ND in G1 Prix De La Foret in October.Unproven over 1 mile and soft ground is concern ,though looks open to improvement this season .

TOORMORE : High class miler ,winning 7 out 17 ,including winning G2 BET365 Mile last month at Sandown under 3LB penalty .Also finished excellent 2ND in this race last year ,when beaten narrowly by useful stablemate Night Of Thunder .Obvious claims with  conditions to suit .

VERDICT :TOORMORE looks solid here ,having finished excellent second in this race last year .Looked good as ever when winning Bet365 Mile last time ,when conceding weight all round .Odds around 9-2 look good value .

(UNPLACED SP 9-2 LOSS £100.00 )
