3.15 Newmarket: Happily (e/w) – 2nd 8/1 (Advised 14/1)

With the potential of a fair amount of rain come the later races, this filly comes right into the reckoning, as she’ll love any cut in the ground. Whilst she’s run well in defeat this year at Group 1 level every time she’s not as effective on the quick surface she’s been racing on. A winner of two Group 1 events on soft ground last year she can bridge the couple of lengths she need to with the principles with the ground in her favour and cause a bit of a surprise. A cracking race and you have to respect the French horse along with Laurens and the other 2 O’Brien horses, but at the prices on potentially soft ground Happily is the one for us.
