Pontefract Thursday

Genius Step won cosily for a nice race and the Godolphin colt looks a nice sort. It will be interesting to see how he fares when step up in trip. On the other hand, Real Madrid provided more disappointment and failed to win at Santander. I would have been better inspired to have gone draw-no-bet on that one since they cannot even score against mediocre opponents. What is there to say about Madrid after these 2 lacklustre matches? Could Mourinho be losing it? We'll see.

There is a cracking card at Newmarket today but the value punt to me seems at Pontefract. In the 16.50 race, Really Lovely looks the pick of the fillies. This daughter of Galileo was a staying-on third on her last race and the mile distance will suit. Probably her main opponents will be nicely-bred debutantes Jarrah from Godolphin and El Lail from Mark Johnston's stable. I cannot see Really Lovely out of the placings, so I recommend her as a Place.

Place: Really Lovely
