You can stop scouring the schedule. Newbury Racecourse is the prime destination for Friday afternoon. Seven races are on the card, and thousands of pounds worth of prize money will have been awarded by the time they conclude. At present, the going is good (good to firm in places).

After checking out the latest daily speed figures from the Racing Post, it would appear that Opal Tiara could be set to deliver a quick ride in the 15:40 Rose Bowl Stakes. The two-year-old is rated quickest at 101 and is also fancied as 7/4 under the experienced guidance of jockey Andrea Atzeni.

Elsewhere in the field of two-year-olds, Madrinho could be a contender with its 94 rating. Tasleet then comes at 89, followed by the 88-rated Plagiarism. But this will be a tough race to call because each of the horses has already won its first career race.
