Newmarket Tips: Most backed horses for Wednesday’s Day 2 at the Craven Meeting

The most backed horses for Wednesday's Day 2 of the Craven Meeting at Newmarket.

14:25 Newmarket - Gasper De Lemos 

Having been declared for the race on Monday, GASPER DE LEMOS has been subject to sustained support for the Listed Feilden Stakes. 

Although this race is run over 1m 1f for three-year-olds, just one furlong further than the 2000 Guineas, it tends to attract a more of a St Ledger horse. 

Steve Ryder's ante-post selection for the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.

Gasper De Lemos was successful at the 2nd attempt as a juvenile and rounded off his campaign finishing 2nd at Newmarket in the Group 3 Zetland Stakes.

That race was run over 1m 2f in soft ground and, although he seemed to stay the trip, it is hoped that Wednesday's forecast good ground will suit better with his sire, Justify, a winner on fast dirt and his dam, Hence, a winner on good to firm ground as well. 

He is available at a best priced 6/1 having been a double figure price at the weekend.

15:00 Newmarket - Embesto

In the Group 3 Earl of Sefton Stakes, Roger Varian's EMBESTO has been well backed to gain a fourth career success. 

Having been unraced at two, this son of Roaring Lion had a busy campaign last year running five times, winning thrice. After winning his first two starts over a mile, he finished 2nd at Newmarket in a Listed race over the same trip. 

The winner, Nostrum, had been 3rd in the Group 1 Dewhurst previously, so it was a nice effort especially given the distance back to the third. Embesto next ran at Salisbury where he dead heated for 1st in a Group 3 with Mighty Ulysses. 

The 3rd, Regal Reality was subsequently placed twice at Group level and Embesto himself finished 4th in a Group 2 at Longchamp. Again over 1 mile, he raced a little keenly out in front and lacked a change of gear to kick away from the field. 

As such, the step up to 1m 1f looks sure to suit and this Group 3 looks well within his reach (7/2 on bet365) if tuned up first time out. 

15:35 Newmarket - Dance Sequence 

DANCE SEQUENCE was two for two in her juvenile campaign with both victories coming at this track. The first was a maiden win on the July course and the second was victory in the Group 3 Oh So Sharp Stakes in October. 

The 4th in that race, Chic Colombine, has come out and won a listed race at Saint-Cloud first time out this year to boost the form as well. 

As such, this daughter of Dubawi is a best priced 4/7 (BetMGM UK) to win this Group 3 with her trained operating at a 46% strike rate.
