Weatherbys Super Sprint Tips: Branwell looks a cut above at Newbury

Some classy two-year-olds line up for the Weatherbys Super Sprint
Some classy two-year-olds line up for the Weatherbys Super Sprint

With nearly £100,000 up for grabs for the winner, the Weatherbys Super Sprint has unsurprisingly attracted some classy two-year-olds, and our man Steve Chambers has been given the task of trying to unearth the winner of what is the feature race at Newbury on Saturday afternoon...

Richard Hannon has trained three of the last four winners of this 5f 34y contest and the star trainer will saddle a five-pronged attack in the 2022 renewal and the Hannon team will be spearheaded by Miami Girl, who is currently a 7/1 chance for the prize. Fifth in the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot, the Cotai Glory filly then went on to win at Windsor in decent fashion, so she has to be given the utmost respect here. Another winner at Windsor last time out was Swift Asset, who is 17/2 here, and while this is a lot tougher he shaped like there could be more to come.

Land Of Summer will be another interesting Hannon contender, who is around the 20/1 mark, but she was well beaten in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot, and along with Armour Propre and Galore from the Hannon yard could be up against it in a field of top notch youngsters.

The aforementioned Queen Mary will throw up some notable formlines for this event, and ahead of Miami Girl that day was MARIA BRANWELL, who is the 9/4 favourite with most bookmakers for this contest, and she has arguably the best form in the book here. Having beaten Miami Girl by over two lengths off level weights in that Queen Mary, David O'Meara's Maria Branwell will be in receipt of weight from the Hannon charge here, so it's really hard to see O'Meara's filly not franking the form, and she should beat her rival by further on Saturday. A real class act, Maria Branwell has everything going for her here, so providing she can build on that Royal Ascot run then she can return to winning ways in fine style.

Tom Clover's Rogue Spirit is a relatively unknown quantity in this event and is challenging Maria Branwell for favouritism around the 7/2 mark, and the Dark Angel gelding heads to Newbury on the back of a hugely impressive three-length win at Wolverhampton. This is a much tougher assignment, but the manner in which he dispatched of his rivals that day suggested there could be a lot more to come, but taking on a proven Group performer in the favourite, Clover's charge may come unstuck here.

Archie Watson's Eddie's Boy ran a huge race when third in the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot last month, but he struggled to kick on next time out when third in the Listed Dragon Stakes at Sandown. Well beaten by Rocket Rodney that day - a contender that beat him in the Windsor Castle - Watson's charge will need more to compete here and at 13/2 looks a little skinny.

With some bookmakers playing five places in the each-way market, there could be some value further down the betting and a couple that catch the eye are the 33/1 shot Safari Dream, who lines up for Rod Millman here. Still winless after two starts, Safari Dream was beaten by Swift Asset in a Windsor maiden last time out, and with that raider available at 17/2 here then could the value lie with the Millman raider.

Finally, a second O'Meara contender that could ruffle a few feathers at 28/1 is Not For Profit, who won a novice stakes at Hamilton Park last time out, and while the Profitable colt will need to improve on that effort he shaped like he could progress as the season goes on and he could be an attractive each-way proposition.
