Free Horse Racing Tip – Lockinge Stakes

Event Start Time: 20/05/17 15:30

Free horse racing tip for the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury on Saturday 20th May. It is unusual for top Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien to reveal future plans for any of his runners immediately following a victory. But, after the four-year-old filly Somehow had easily dispatched the opposition to run out an easy winner of Newmarket’s Group 2 Dahlia Stakes recently, the master of Ballydoyle lost little time in nominating this Saturday’s Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes at Newbury the next port of call for the daughter of Fastnet Rock and Oaks heroine Alexandrova.

Racing tip for the Lockinge Stakes

The fact that Somehow was campaigned mainly over a mile and a half last season, due to the stamina in the horse’s pedigree, should not be taken as a negative as she has looked a different proposition since being dropped in trip. The straight mile on Saturday should prove ideal for the likely mount of Ryan Moore and looks a ready-made racing tip for an each-way bet at the 11-2 available with Ladbrokes.

Last season’s Qipco 2000 Guineas winner Galileo Gold is a class act on his day but ran poorly on his final two starts last year and will be having his first run since finishing a seven length fifth behind Minding at Ascot last October and a bigger threat to the selection could come in the shape of the Richard Fahey-trained Ribchester.

The son of Iffraaj is a model of consistency and may possibly have won in Meydan back in March if ridden with more restraint instead of finishing an honourable close-up third. The Godolphin-owned colt is sure to go close with conditions likely to suit but the 3lb fillies allowance received by Somehow may just swing the balance in favour of our horse racing tip who can continue her rapid progress by claiming a first Group 1 of the season at the Berkshire venue.
