Group One bet365 Fillies Mile seemingly dominated by the two O'Brien-trained fillies Magical and Happily (joined by stable companion September) who have beaten each other this season but look well clear of the opposition on form, it might be worth banking on TORCELLO to continue his improvement in the competitive bet365 Old Rowley Handicap.

Limato on salvage mission as Jacobs eyes big bucks next year

Full RacecardRacecardsRacing TipsValue Bet: Gifted and talentedBen Linfoot has three Value Bet selections at Newmarket on Friday including Hugo Palmer's Gifted Master in the Challenge Stakes.  He said: “Various factors, including the elements, have rather conspired against us this year and the Challenge Stakes is something of a salvage operation. It’s the last possibility for him to race in Britain this year, as by the time of next weekend’s Champions Sprint I understand Hurricane Ophelia will have done her worst.The possible spoke in the wheel is Aidan O'Brien's I Can Fly, who jumps up in class following a winning debut at Dundalk.

 1hSimon Holt: Out on a Lim!Simon Holt is prepared to give another chance to Limato as he previews Friday's action at Newmarket.

As big a danger, arguably, is last year’s 2000 Guineas second Massaat, who made a successful return in the Hungerford Stakes.

Jacobs has no appetite for a return to the Breeders’ Cup, in which Limato was sixth in the Breeders’ Cup Mile last year, but said: “I think it’s unlikely we will go back to six furlongs with Limato as a six-year-old and we might well try a mile again next year.

With places in two Group 1s it has hardly been a disastrous campaign for the Henry Candy-trained five-year-old, but Jacobs has been inspired by Suedois’s success in last weekend’s $1m Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes.
