Newton Abbot Horse Racing Naps – 23 June 2015

Calm has returned to the world of UK horse racing after the five-day spectacle that was Royal Ascot 2015. Of course, though, the sport rarely has a moment for pause, and the next meeting worth looking at is Newton Abbot on Tuesday. The following free horse racing naps come courtesy of Sky Spots.

The surface is expected to be rather quick, as the going should be good (good to firm in places). That should make for a blistering race in the 19:00 Beau Novices Chase, which will only feature five runners. Although second-favourite at 15/8, Sporting Boy has had the best form in winning its last two races.

Up next is the 19:30 St Austell Handicap Hurdle, which will have seven runners. Dubai Prince is the favourite option at 5/2 in spite of questionable form, whereas 3/1 prospect Frozen Over has won three from its last four races.

Snow Sky proved to be a worth victor as 12/1 winner in the 15:40 Hardwicke Stakes. Next, though, Undrafted managed to win at 14/1 in the 16:20 Diamond Jubilee Stakes, beating off competition from 7/2 favourite Brazen Beau.

Interception stepped as the next winner at 10/1 in the 17:00 Wokingham Stakes. Oriental Fox managed to claim the final victory by winning at 4/1 in the 17:35 Queen Alexandra Stakes.

Yesterday’s matches in the Copa America concluded the group stages of this year’s tournament. Starting with Friday, however, Peru clinched second in Group A with a 1-0 win over Venezuela.

Saturday then saw Chile destroy Bolivia 5-0 to win Group B, with Paraguay drawing 1-1 against Uruguay to finish second. Argentina then joined those two in the next round after a 1-0 win against Jamaica, winning Group B in the process.

Colombia then missed out to Peru by finishing third in Group C following a 0-0 draw between the two sides on Sunday. Brazil managed to win 2-1 despite playing without suspended captain Neymar, finishing as winners of Group C.

The quarterfinals’ fixtures are yet to be determined until a playoff draw is made with the three third-placed finishers, which include Ecuador, Uruguay, and Colombia. Although proving to be disappointments, Uruguay and Colombia could still progress.
