Sweetspots: Limato's Lockinge - ground perfect for Candy's star
Hugo Palmer is in very good form at present and he saddles Dukhan in the Al Zubarah London Gold Cup at Newbury (3.00). Cheekpieces have been applied for the first time and Frankie Dettori takes the ride.
Jockey Paddy Mathers goes to Newmarket for one ride, Lucky Lucky Man in the 3.15. Richard Fahey’s grey gelding is bred to get further than today’s distance and will appreciate the stiff six furlongs, for all it looks a competitive handicap.
Henry Candy sends out just one runner and that’s stable star Limato in the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes at Newbury (3.40). The 2016 July Cup winner and strong traveller gets his ground and doubts over whether he stays the mile trip can be put to bed.
