Betting Tip: Shamsaya @ 11/4 with williamhill

Simon Crisford’s SHAMSAYA has been keeping good company since winning on her Ripon debut and she’ll find the opposition in the 5f nursery that opens Leicester’s evening card far more manageable.

The daughter of Shamardal had no answer to Godolphins’ Blue Point over 6f at Doncaster last time, finishing 11 lengths adrift in second, but that horse is a bit special and was just touched off in Group 2 company at Goodwood subsequently. Prior to that she’d finished fourth in a Listed contest at Newmarket (6f, heavy) just half a length behind the third, Marie Of Lyon, who went on to finish a respectable fifth behind the very smart Fair Eva at Ascot.

That’s the best form on offer here and it suggests she can competitive off her opening handicap mark of 84, with the stable record in nurseries a highly encouraging 3-9 in 2016 for a £1 level-stakes profit of £5.50. Described by a stable representative as “very professional and “honest” after winning over this trip on her debut, it’ll be a surprise if she can’t add to her tally before the season’s out and this looks a decent opportunity with Josephine Gordon booked and taking a handy 3lb off her back.
