Lucky 15 Tip 1: Murillo in the 1:50 at Newbury
It takes a speedy sort to lead the Guineas field for the first 6½f as Murillo did last time out. The Aidan O’Brien colt did fade late on that day, but being by strong speed influence Scat Daddy, that was hardly the biggest surprise. Slightly unlucky not to claim Coventry Stakes glory on good to firm last season, he drops back to what is likely his optimum trip, and may take some pegging back.
Lucky 15 Tip 1: Crystal Ocean in the 2:25 at Newbury
As demonstrated in such emphatic fashion by Roaring Lion in the Dante this week, it can be tough to top classic form. As such the one to make easily the most appeal here is last season’s St Leger runner up, Crystal Ocean. That half-length third to Capri at Doncaster looks to be the best form on offer, and the son of Sea The Stars is already a proven performer over this trip in this grade having landed the Gordon Stakes at Goodwood last season. Fit and well having won on his comeback at Sandown, and fully expected to improve as a four year old, he looks tough to beat.
Lucky 15 Tip 2: Purser in the 2:40 at Newmarket
There are a couple of highly promising types in here in the form of the Charlie Appleby runner, Aurum, and Owen Burrows, Mutaaqeb. They will both have to step up a fair way if they are to lower the colours of the John Gosden runner, Purser, though.
Two from three over this trip last season, his only defeat came when enduring a troubled passage and still only going down by 3 ¾l to the talented, Masar. He gave weight and a beating to Symbolization last time out, and with that one having since gone on to land a competitive handicap at Newmarket off a mark of 100, the form looks solid.
Lucky 15 Tip 4: Addeybb in the 3:40 at Newbury
The one to be on in the big race of the day is the William Haggas runner Addeybb. Already only 2lbs off the top rated amongst these runners, if there is one horse who may not yet have reached anything like their full potential it seems most likely to be this son of Pivotal.
Solid last season in winning three of his five starts, he has taken two massive strides forward this year. Firstly when winning the Lincoln in a canter off a mark of 99, and latterly when taking the step up into Group 2 company in his stride at Sandown last time. This demands more, but he looks fairly priced to prove up to the task.
