LIBRISA BREEZE, who met more trouble in running in the Lennox Stakes at Glorious Goodwood than a Monday morning commuter on the M25, bids to put that behind him and win the Group 2 Hungerford Stakes at Newbury today.
A red hot 6/4 favourite in the 3.35, this 5yo grey son of Mount Nelson won two valuable Ascot handicaps last year and has threatened to win a big race this term. Today will hopefully be his turn as he reopposes against Breton Rock who could struggle with his three pound penalty.
Robert Winston rides, as he does Fighting Temeraire at Newbury in the 3 o’clock and despite a 315 day absence, he could go well at around 11/2. The 5y Invincible Spirit gelding goes well fresh and could trigger a big-race Saturday double for the yard.
