Royal Ascot remains centre stage on Friday but there are five other meetings taking place across Britain and Ireland, including an evening offering from Newmarket.

My trio of Newmarket tips for Friday include Global Asset for William Haggas, after his near miss at Windsor in last month's handicap introduction.

Newmarket Tips - Friday, June 21

  • 18:35 – Global Asset @ 15/8
  • 19:45 – Rhetorical @ 11/10
  • 20:55 – Wonder Kid @ 5/6

18:35 – Global Asset @ 15/8

The William Haggas-trained GLOBAL ASSET was runner-up in last month's handicap bow/seasonal comeback at Windsor (1m, good to firm) and should be going one better before long.

He was rather unfortunate that evening to bump into He's Got Game under an inspired ride from Oisin Murphy, but this Night Of Thunder gelding lost nothing in a slender defeat and the form has been franked as third home Great Acclaim is a winner of handicaps at Windsor and Newbury since for Eve Johnston-Houghton.

Global Asset was ridden positively in that Windsor comeback by Tom Marquand and looked to have made good use of the running rail when they passed the two-furlong pole in front. He faced a battle, knuckled down for it, and was denied just a neck at the line.

From this 3lb higher mark, he looks set to go one better with Cieren Fallon taking over now for a yard in form.

19:45 – Rhetorical @ 11/10

A novice event over 1m2f here, with seven runners, and the standout amongst them could well be RHETORICAL for trainer William Haggas.

The Wootton Bassett colt cost a handsome 200,000 gns as a yearling and is related to plenty of winners.

He debuted five weeks ago at Newbury over this trip on good ground and won in the style of a good horse.

Tom Marquand certainly didn't have to push all his buttons on that occasion and he was strong through the line. He doesn't yet hold any fancy entries but that is often the Haggas way and this could certainly be a Group-horse in the making.

He faces some promising rivals in Ciro Di Marzio, Specialisation and More Thunder but can mark down his qualities with another win.

20:55 – Wonder Kid @ 5/6

The finale on the evening could also witness another useful performer in the making as WONDER KID looks to make it successive wins for Hugo Palmer.

The gelded son of Belardo made a mockery of an opening mark of 70 when scoring at Newbury (1m4½f, good to firm) earlier this month, despite hanging late in the contest.

Oisin Murphy never really got serious with him and, given it was his first run since December, he should come on plenty for it and, with his penalty, is still 5lb well-in here.

This is a Extra Place Race, so Betfred will be paying 3 Places instead of 2 at 1/5 Odds.
