5:55 Windsor (1st June) BETDAQ.COM £20 FREE BET EBF STALLIONS NOVICE STAKES (Plus 10 Race)

An EBF Novice Stakes race over 5f 10y on good to firm going. Nine two-year-olds take part: four with race experience - winners - and three unbeaten on their sole start to date. This isn't a race type I would normally consider a bet but I think there is a class horse in this field with William Haggas' Besharah. This bay filly, a daughter of Kodiac, cost 85,000gns at the yearling sales. She was backed on debut at Ascot, a race where the form has been franked on a number of occasions. Sheikh Rashid Dalmook Al Maktoum's charge weaved her way through the field that day and then outpaced a good field with ease. That was a smart performance. Haggas has been careful placing this juvenile for her second start having been entered to run in Stakes, Listed and Hilary Needler Trophy before taking this option mostly likely en-rout to Royal Ascot. The form horses set a level of ability but by all account not the stiffest class and although the likes of Richard Hannon's debutante WhatdoIwantthatfor are worthy of respect it would take an outstanding horse to lower the colours of Besharah, even with a penalty. If avilable at fair odds [11/4+] I would consider this horse hard to beat. Just notice it is even money. Shortish price but will take world of beating.
