Betting Tip: @ 6/1 with coral

Richard Fahey is another trainer to follow at Newmarket and particularly on the July Course, with his 104 runners since 2012 yielding 20 winners for a £1 level-stakes profit of £53.38. His three runners here last Saturday produced 16/1 nursery winner Holy Grail and 20/1 runner-up Farlow, so his sole runner this evening, STEVE PRESCOTT, who carries bottom weight in the closing 6f handicap (8.25pm), is entitled to plenty of respect on his stable record alone.

A quick check on his form reveals he’s got a serious chance on his second to Captain Colby over track and trip in May off a 1lb lower mark, and he’s continued to run well since, including when seventh (of 17) behind subsequent Stewards’ Cup winner Magical Memory at the July meeting. His best form has all come on fast ground so it was to his credit he ran a close fifth on soft here last time, and he will relish faster conditions this evening. All of which makes him hard to resist at 6/1.
