5 things you didn’t know about Day 2 of the Newmarket July FestivalJuly 10th, 2013
Rizeena Top on Figures
In our opinion we need look no further than Rizeena in the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes. Top on our Speed figures when winning at Ascot in the Queen Mary Stakes and the figure is well clear of the opposition. In fact the speed figure recorded at Sandown was also excellent for a 2yo. Both these SF's are higher than anything else has recorded in this race and the form of the Queen Mary has been franked in style by both Fig Roll and Bye Bye Birdie. Horses having just one run in the last month also fit a solid profile for this race so we feel One Chance could be the main danger and is worth a e/way saver.
