Following the afternoon action at Glorious Goodwood there’s a Friday evening card on the July Course at Newmarket to look forward to.

There are a total of six races at headquarters, with a Class 4 0-85 handicap over a seven-furlong trip the standout contest.

18:20 – Dors Toyboy @ 22/1

The opening handicap on the card is run over the sprint trip of six furlongs and DORS TOYBOY looks capable of a big run.

The six-year-old son of Dark Angel is having just his second start on turf, with his only previous effort on the grass coming at Yarmouth back in 2020.

However, there doesn’t appear to be any reason to suggest that the grey gelding won’t act on turf, having run well on a variety of different artificial surfaces, and Dean Ivory’s charge may well be underrated by the prices.

Dors Toyboy also steps back to six furlongs this evening, having scored over seven two starts ago, but the forecast testing conditions are likely to put a great emphasis on stamina and the six-year-old looks set to go well.

18:55 – Moogie @ 12/1

MOOGIE created a good impression when scoring on debut at Newcastle in May, and although things haven’t got to plan since, the three-year-old could bounce back in the fillies handicap at 18:55.

James Fanshawe’s charge was well down the field at Doncaster last time out, but she travelled strongly in that contest, suggesting there was still a big engine lurking.

Moogie was dropped two pounds for that effort, making today’s mark of 74 look extremely workable and it would be no surprise if Fanshawe’s filly showed up better this evening.

20:00 – Power Of Darkness @ 14/1

POWER OF DARKNESS was running off a mark of 92 this time last year and Charlie Fellowes’ charge goes to post in the 0-75 handicap over one mile rated only 76 this evening.

Clearly, the eight-year-old isn’t the same force of old, but conditions look ideal for this outing and the son of Power is further helped in the handicap by Mikkel Mortensen’s seven-pound claim.

There was certainly enough in Power Of Darkness’ effort over course and distance 36 days ago to suggest that this might be the ideal time to catch Fellowes’ runner.
