Newmarket: Zain Claudette
Ran a fast time on debut at Goodwood and pulled well clear of the third horse. Has the form in the book whilst the market is leaning towards the potential of the Godolphin pair.
There are a couple of fancied Godolphin debutants in the 5.45 Newmarket but they’ll have to be pretty straight on debut to beat Zain Claudette. She ran a big race at Goodwood, losing in a headbob to Hellomydarlin (subsequently well beaten at Royal Ascot) and pulling three lengths clear of the pack.
Sent off at 25/1 it was a surprising performance but visually she was impressive and she earned a adjusted speed rating of 77, which is very good on debut. She sets a high bar but doesn’t have the respect in the market she deserves.
