Friday’s racing tips – Money back if our 4/1 NAP at Newmarket is beaten

Jonathan Vine 12 Jul 2018
A view of the July Course.

Our expert takes a look through all of Friday’s televised races and selects a strong challenger in the opener at Newmarket as his NAP of the day with Paddy Power.

Day one of Newmarket’s July Festival produced some excellent winners and tomorrow’s card promises to do the same. While the Falmouth Stakes takes centre stage, it’s to the opening handicap, the Silver Bunbury Cup where our expert looks to provide his NAP of the day with Paddy Power.

Sign up with Paddy Power today, place your first bet of £20 on our NAP of the day and you'll get your money back in cash if your NAP is beaten!

1:50pm Newmarket bet365 Handicap (Silver Bunbury Cup) (Class 2) 7f



With just seven entrants – as opposed to the 18 we had last year – and just four pounds separating the top and bottom-rated horses, this year’s Silver Bunbury Cup feels more like a Conditions Stakes than a Handicap.

Saluti’s progression has come a little out of the blue this season and he proved the last day he was capable of contending at this level. War Glory and Salateen are consistent sorts to be respected, but I fancy former winner SWIFT APPROVAL to continue his excellent form on the July course and regain his crown.

Stuart Williams’ six-year-old has been on the go since the winter, running well in several lucrative races on the all-weather. It took Swift Approval a couple of runs on turf to regain his bearings, but Williams’ charge soon got his act together, running well for third in a Class Two at Goodwood before coming up just a neck short in the card-closing handicap on Oaks day at Epsom.

In 2016, Swift Approval made all when winning the Silver Bunbury Cup. Parfait proved to be well ahead of the handicapper when demolishing the field last year, but the returning champion ran a respectable race to claim the fourth and final place shouldering odds of 33/1.

Swift Approval has won three times off a rating higher than the 90 he takes into battle on Friday. His three runs on the July course have yielded two wins and a place and Silvestre De Sousa’s presence in the saddle can only be seen as a plus.
