Plenty of rain around, with the damp weather around, the ground at racecourses takes much longer to dry in the Autumn, so I am selecting a horse who has form on an easy surface.
Todays Free Tip is as follows:
Horse: Beat The Bank
Time: 3.35 Newmarket
Current Odds: 5/2
In what looks an open looking Group 2 race, Beat The Bank comes here as an improving horse, he won well last time at Group 3 level, and acts with ground on the slow side, which it will be today if rain/ showers that are forecast at Newmarket fall. Of his rivals, Zonderland has been lightly raced, he ran well last time when just pipped on the line, but his best form is on good or faster ground. Sir John Lavery has good form and could well be the main threat, he seems to act on all sorts of ground, especially soft. The interesting one is White Baron, he comes from South Africa, hard to evaluate how good he is, but his best form has been on good or better ground. Mushtashry is dangerous, but has to prove he acts on ground with ease in it, he has tried twice before, and has shown below par efforts.
