Today's Good Thing: Secret Protector

Time: 4:50 pm

Meeting: Newmarket

The Daily Good Thing Result

SECRET PROTECTOR has at least 8lb in hand of these rivals on official figures, having finished second in the Feilden Stakes on his reappearance here last month. A convincing winner at Meydan prior to that, Charlie Appleby’s charge has evidently acclimatised well on his return to the UK and can land this. Horris Hill second Percy’s Lad is the next highest rated but was well beaten in the European Free Handicap, so a bigger danger looks to be Mohaafeth, who is unbeaten in two starts this term, including a victory in handicap company over C&D last time. Inigo Jones won a strong Chelmsford maiden last time and cannot be underestimated here. SECRET PROTECTOR has the best form and should pull out more over this longer trip, so he’s an obvious choice to take his career tally to 3 despite the presence of other promising sorts in the shape of Mohaafeth and Inigo Jones. Percy’s Lad isn’t a forlorn hope, either.

Today's Good Thing: Paricolor

Time: 5:20 pm

Meeting: Hexam

The Daily Good Thing Result

PARICOLOR sets the standard after his decisive victory over an extended 2m3f in this grade at Wetherby a month ago. The drop in trip will not be a problem for the five-year-old and he should take plenty of stopping. Chef De Troupe has finished third to the selection in both starts since his victory at Huntingdon in November and he should be in the mix once again, while Chieftain’s Choice completes the shortlist. PARICOLOR has been reliable in this sphere and got the better of Chef de Troupe earlier in the season, so he’s fancied to confirm his authority for all the pair are closely matched on form. Chieftain’s Choice, who was third to the selection last time, is also respected.
