TRF tipster Dareen Goodbody- in scintillating form recently – picks out his best bet for today’s racing.
Geoffrey Freer Stakes – 15.05 Newbury
The Derby form looks very relevant as we attempt to find the winner of this solid Group 3 encounter. Sir Michael Stoute has a strong contender here in King’s Fete who ran a creditable and unlucky third in the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes at Ascot before winning the Glorious Stakes at Goodwood.
But it is the Lingfield Derby trial winner HUMPHREY BOGART who could prove too strong for his rivals this afternoon. His run in this years Derby is strong and I was not discouraged when he ran well in the King Edward VII Stakes at the Royal meeting.
He looked out of his depth when stepping up into Group 1 company again when only ninth on the Invitational Stakes in the US but this drop back in class should see him go close.
Battersea represents Roger Varian and he has shown proven stamina, running a very good fourth in the Princess of Wales Arqana Stakes at Newmarket recently. But it’s Humphrey Bogart who is taken to play it again here.
HUMPHREY BOGART : Win @ 4/1 (BOG)
