Betting Tip: @ Sheikha Reika @ 2/1 with bet365

Threading is the form choice on her victory in last year’s Group 2 Lowther Stakes at this course, for which she is unpenalised, but she’s failed to fire twice since then and SHEIKHA REIKA might be able to improve past her. Roger Varian’s filly has plenty to find on the ratings but she has done well from two to three on the evidence of last month’s taking 7f Newmarket maiden victory. The daughter of Shamardal had clearly been showing plenty at home given she was heavily backed into favouritism and her supporters would have been counting their money a long way out as she only had to be shaken up to come three lengths clear. Given her rating (88), Varian could no doubt have placed her to win a nice handicap so that he is pitching her straight into Listed company at this stage of her career speaks volumes for the high regard she is held in, as does her entry in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes. With today’s extra furlong and quicker ground likely to suit, she looks the one to be on.
