Return to the Buick and Dance Sequence to continue the winning ways


15:35 Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes

The sun is shining and we have flat racing at Newmarket to look forward to on Wednesday, including the 15:35 Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes.

Dance Series is the favorite in the field of 10 with Aidan O’Brien’s Matrika and Roger Varian’s True Cyan rising to be the only possible contenders.

That may seem presumptuous as Spirit has hit this distance and looks like a horse with plenty of potential.

Matrika has shown improvement in every outing since winning her debut at the Curragh, finishing second in excellent Ascot company to claim another victory at the Curragh in her toughest outing to date.

True Cyan has plenty of room for improvement and we expect to see some here, and although he is likely to have a mile in the cupboard, his Guineas price is 33/1 compared to Dance Sequence’s 4/1, which perhaps reflects the difference in expectations. .

We’ve seen the Dance Series win twice at Newmarket with William Buick in the saddle, which helped improve his strike rate on the Rowley course to 30%.

He looked fit for the Guineas trial last time out and if he can get to Wednesday unscathed, he could be the favorite to take the 1000 Guineas.

recommended bet: Dance Series to win 15:35 at Newmarket
