Frontiersman heads betting for Princess Of Wales's Stakes at Newmarket

Thursday 13th July, 2017 - 3:35pm Newmarket - Princess Of Wales's Stakes

We are set for a fabulous July Meeting at Newmarket over the next few days, and the highlight on day one is the Group 2 Princess Of Wales's Stakes, which last year saw subsequent Ascot Gold Cup hero Big Orange storm to glory, and this year we have a star-studded line-up heading to the 1m 4f start.

  • Sir Michael Stoute has won this five times in 12 years (saddles Poet's Word)
  • Frontiersman was second in Coronation Cup last time out
  • Hawkbill won Coral-Eclipse last season

Frontiersman Tops Godolphin Duo

Charlie Appleby's Frontiersman was a fine two-and-a-half length winner of at Newmarket handicap two starts ago, and the Godolphin raider took a huge step forward on his next run when second to Highland Reel in the Group 1 Coronation Cup at Epsom Downs, so if he can continue to improve then will be the one to beat here, and has been installed as the 13/8 favourite with bet365 for this contest.

He struggled with the idiosyncratic Epsom in that Coronation Cup, so a return to Flat HQ could see him in a much better light, but with some classy rivals taking him on here then the 13/8 looks rather short for a horse that lacks experience in Pattern company, and the more attractive betting proposition from the Godolphin team is Hawkbill.

Last season's Coral-Eclipse winner, this 8/1 chance with Ladbrokes was third in the aforementioned Coronation Cup, and having won on his last visit to Newmarket then makes much more appeal, and could well turn the form around with his stablemate on Thursday afternoon.

Poet's Word To Hand Stoute More Success

Sir Michael Stoute has trained the winner of this race five times in the last 12 renewals, and the Freemason Lodge handler can make it a spectacular sixth win in 13 years with Poet's Word, who is a cracking bet at 4/1 with Paddy Power to land this Group 2 feature race, which will be shown live on ITV3.

Progressive in handicap company last season, the four-year-old won his comeback outing at Chelmsford City, before being edged out by Deauville in the Huxley Stakes at Chester a few months ago, so after having a small break off the track, he will return an even more polished performer, and he can bag another victory for the Stoute team.

Wings Of Desire Best Of The Rest

John Gosden hasn't won this race since 2008 when Lucarno bagged victory, but he will saddle a dual-pronged attack in the shape of Muntahaa (16/1) and Wings Of Desire (4/1), and it's the latter that is the main challenger, as having finished fourth in the Derby last season, showed a decent level of form on his comeback run when fifth in the Hardwicke Stakes last month, so is entitled to improve again, and is respected.

David Simcock's Algometer was second in a Group 3 on his first start of the season, but the 10/1 shot with Coral will need more here, while Western Hymn will complete the line-up, and he can often flatter to deceive in these sort of races, and can be ignored at 16/1 with Ladbrokes.
