Newmarket 1.50 1 Makzeem @ 8/1 (1 point each way odds to 4th)A very competitive opening Sprint at Newmarket and one in which many have solid claims;
of the more exposed types you can bank on Suzis Connoisseur and Shady McCoy to run well here but there
are a few with far more scope, and the top one MAKZEEM really catches my eye. This looks set to be run
at a very fast clip and although the Going was Good yesterday it is clear the rain had just got in to the ground;
a few showers have passed overnight and the fact that this horse won last time at the trip, having been dropped
down from a mile, offers the proof that if it turns out to be a real charge, its proven stamina will be a big factor.
It strikes me as a quality horse with scope to improve at 4 and from a yard whose attitude has always been
one of quality over quantity and giving all horses time to develop and mature.
