2019 July Meeting tips - The trends, trainers and horses to follow at Newmarket

Best Solution carries the blue of Godolphin to victory in the Princess Of Wales's Stakes.

We take a look at closer look at five of the races during next week’s July Meeting and outline five horses for punters to side with at Newmarket.

Next week, Newmarket racecourse opens it gates for three fantastic days of racing during their July Meeting. Unlike the Guineas festival, which is run on the Rowley Mile, Newmarket uses their July course during the summer months and several lucrative prizes will be up for grabs during this popular meeting.

When you look through the recent history of many horse races, certain recurring themes crop up to help point punters in the right direction. We’ve taken a closer look five of the big races during this year's July Meeting, found some common trends and picked out five horses who fit the bill.

2019 July Meeting Tips

Princess Of Wales's Stakes


Sheikh Mohammed’s boys in blue have claimed victory in three of the past five renewals of this Group Two. Godolphin’s leading light in this year’s race could be MASAR, who made an encouraging return from injury in the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot.

On his first outing after winning the 2018 Epsom Derby, Masar got off to an inauspicious start, tripping over his feet and almost unseating James Doyle as he stumbled out of the stalls. After getting back into the race, Masar faded back to fourth as Defoe clinched victory, but Charlie Appleby’s star is sure to come on from that run and comfortably leads his rivals in terms of rating.

bet365 Trophy

Mark Johnston

If you’re looking for a hardy stayer to side with in a newly created, one-mile-six-furlong handicap, siding with Mark Johnston would be a profitable ploy. Johnston has many top stayers in his stable, saddling the winners of huge staying handicaps like the Chester Cup and the Cesarewitch in recent seasons.

This year’s king of the Roodee was MAKING MIRACLES and he could still be well handicapped enough to land a second big prize of his campaign. Franny Norton’s mount relished the testing conditions at Chester, powering home from the front to seal a six length success. Making Miracles has previously won on quick ground and made eye-catching late progress to claim seventh in the Northumberland Plate last time out. He could be a solid bet.

Falmouth Stakes

Irish-trainer Three-Year-Olds

Victories for Alice Springs, Roly Poly and Alpha Centauri have ensured the Falmouth Stakes trophy has been on the boat back to Ireland in all of the past three seasons. HERMOSA may have had her colours lowered by surprise package Watch Me at Royal Ascot, but you wouldn’t be surprised to see the dual Guineas-winner return to top form at Newmarket and Hermosa will be looking to hand Aidan O’Brien a third Falmouth Stakes win in the last four years.

bet365 Bunbury Cup

Richard Fahey

Richard Fahey is the joint winning-most trainer in the Bunbury Cup, capturing three victories since his first in 2011. Fahey has six horses entered into next week’s renewal, with Aljady and Cosmic Law sitting prominently in the betting. As does GREAT PROSPECTOR, who has been running consistently well without claiming victory this season and he should be much more competitive as he steps back up to seven furlongs.

July Cup

Beaten Last Time Out

Sir Michael Stoute’s charge sprung from the pack to chase down Blue Point and there was just a neck between them when the line arrived to save the favourite. Sir Michael Stoute is a genius when it comes to helping older horses improve and Dream Of Dreams is fancied by many to mount a winning challenge in the July Meeting's most prestigious race.
