Newbury has a GII and two GIIIs, and a 10F handicap.
GOING: GOOD (Going Stick: 6.1) (Partly cloudy)
NBY R2 (8:40am EDT)- 1m3f Legacy Cup Stakes (Group 3) (Formerly The Arc Trial) (Class 1) (3yo+)
Some big name horses on a recovery mission in here. #1- Solid Stone (9-2) won this race last year, has had a limited campaign in 2022, prepped for today by Stoute over the Kempton AW. Carries a 5lb penalty for GII win in May. #6- Siskany (3-1) hasn't been seen since Saudi in February. Has run the best races of these, needs to fire right out of the box today.
NBY R3 (9:15am EDT)- 5f (5f34y) World Trophy Stakes (Group 3) (Class 1) (3yo+)
#6- Tis Marvellous (4-1) was progressive last year (as a 7yo!), took the Beverly Bullet last out and seems poised for another big effort. #7- Manaccan (3-1) has progressed smoothly as a 3yo, won a Listed event at Doncaster last week.
NBY R4 (9:50am EDT)- 6f Mill Reef Stakes (Group 2) (Class 1) (2yo)
2yo sprinters. Not the greatest renewal of this event. #6- Shouldvebeenaring (2-1) carries an experience/class edge in here, but lightly-raced 2yos can jump up quickly.
NBY R5 (10:25am EDT)- 1m2f Handicap (Class 2) (3yo+ 0-105)
#2- Warren Point (9-2) is 3-for-4, beat Blue Trail at Goodwood when last seen, should be this good. #5- Ottoman Fleet (6-1) is a progressive Sea The Stars gelding for Appleby/Godolphin, not out since June but could wax these.
