Newmarket Racecourse

Newmarket's three-day July Festival gets going on Thursday afternoon with some cracking action in store. There are three Group races to look forward to as they race at Newmarket from 13:50 to 17:20, with conditions on the July course forecast to be soft, good to soft in places. 

Here's a trio of Newmarket fancies to consider for day one of the meeting, including the unbeaten Ain't Nobody in the Kingdom of Bahrain July Stakes for trainer Kevin Ryan. 

Newmarket Tips - Thursday, July 11

  • 14:25 – Ain't Nobody @ 9/2
  • 15:00 – Imperial Guard @ 5/1
  • 16:45 – Lead Artist @ 2/1

14:25 – Ain't Nobody @ 9/2

A chance to pull together some strands of Royal Ascot form as Coventry Stakes second Electrolyte and Norfolk Stakes fourth Whistlejacket join the Windsor Castle Stakes winner AIN'T NOBODY in an exciting field of six for the Group 2 Kingdom of Bahrain July Stakes over 6f. 

It's fair to suggest that both Electrolyte and Whistlejacket weren't done any favours at Ascot by the fact those that beat them did so on different parts of the track. Trainers Archie Watson and Aidan O'Brien have every right to feel compensation could be pending now but Kevin Ryan's Ain't Nobody is a rival of substance. 

The Sands Of Mali colt is speedily bred and won a Carlisle novice (5f, good to soft) in May on his debut under Tom Eaves. 

Jamie Spencer got the leg-up in the Windsor Castle and typically put Ain't Nobody in front deep inside the final furlong in that 27-runner Listed contest over 5f. They really gobbled up the ground in getting there and, with that stiff track suiting, this extra furlong is very much worth exploring. 

This smart youngster may be good enough to remain unbeaten with a statement win at HQ as Eaves returns to the saddle. 

Ain't Nodoby to win at 9-2

15:00 – Imperial Guard @ 5/1

Class 2 handicap action over 6f, with more than £50k on offer to the winner of this 16-runner heat. 

There's no doubt Newmarket specialist Woodhay Wonder is a major danger back here, the filly having run a big race in defeat in the Palace of Holyroodhouse at Royal Ascot three weeks ago. 

The market has pinpointed her hopes but maybe less so those of IMPERIAL GUARD for trainer Andrew Balding and jockey Hayley Turner. 

The Night Of Thunder colt has run only twice on turf. He was third at Ascot in May and then fifth at York last month in what represented a sharp rise in class as Turner took over in the saddle for the first time. 

He is already a 6f all-weather scorer and came from an unpromising position on the Knavesmire with some good late gains. With more to come and eased 1lb in the weights, he could be a key player off a light weight. 

Imperial Guard to win 15.00 at 5-1

16:45 – Lead Artist @ 2/1

A nose was the margin of defeat for LEAD ARTIST on his debut in the Wood Ditton maiden on the Rowley course here in April and the John and Thady Gosden-trained son of Dubawi has since made good on the promise shown to win a very decent York novice (1m, good) at the Dante festival in May by nearly five lengths. 

The form has taken some knocks but he was much the best and can improve again for this rise into Listed class as the Gosden yard goes for two wins in three years in this Listed Sir Henry Cecil Stakes. 

Lead Artist to win at 2-1
