Newmarket Speed Ratings – 16 April 2015


Newmarket is expecting partly cloudy weather tomorrow (16 April), when the going will be good. Fans should be eager for this meeting because it will feature eight races instead of just seven. And from the day’s races, it is the 15:30 Abernant Stakes that appears to be fasted, at least according to the latest horse racing speed ratings free from the Racing Post.

A total of 12 runners have declared for the 15:30. Ahead of the race, it is Chookie Royale that has the top speed rating of 115. The Keith Dalgleish-trained horse is seven years old and will be ridden by Tom Eaves.

The race will feature a few other horses with speed ratings of above 100. Most notably, Jack Dexter and Rivellino have been rated equal on 109. Then, you have Music Master just behind them on 108, while American Hope is 106 and Astaire is 103.
