Adam Kirby looks to have double prospects at Newmarket this evening – and both fancies can be backed at good prices.

He teams up with Luca Cumani for the ride on OPTIMA PETAMUS in the mile handicap (due off 7.00pm) and the three-year-old looks nicely treated on a mark of 72. He earned that rating with a couple of ‘quiet’ runs in maidens earlier this year, showing promise on each occasion, and you can ignore his effort at Lingfield last time, when well fancied, as he failed to see out the 1m2f trip and also finished lame.

Given plenty of time to get over that, he could well resume his progress back over a more suitable trip and with his stable ticking over nicely – six winners in the last fortnight and plenty of placed horses. Cumani has been using Kirby much more this season and they’ve combined for a healthy strike rate of 21%, which jumps to 24% (13-55) for three-year-old runners. Despite that, the selection looks to have slipped under the bookies’ radar with 8/1 forecast.
