Free horse racing selections for Thursday June 28

Action from the July Course at Newmarket
Action from the July Course at Newmarket

Nick Grant previews Thursday's racing with the main selection running on the first of Newmarket's three-day meeting.

Aces looks to hold the winning hand in the 188Bet Mobile Bet10 Get20 Handicap at Newmarket.

Once with Charlie Hills and then with John Hammond in France, the Dark Angel gelding will be having his third start for Ian Williams and has already made his mark for the Alvechurch trainer.

First time up saw him head to Ascot in May, where he finished a not-disgraced seventh in a handicap won by Dreamfield, who went off an astonishingly short price for the Wokingham at Royal Ascot and is surely bound for big things.

He built on that next time up when making no mistake at the Derby meeting at Epsom, staying on strongly to win readily.

The six-year-old has winning form over seven furlongs and it is no surprise to see him return to that trip, with further improvement at that distance more than possible in his current mood, helping to negate the 8lb rise in the weights.

Red Cymbal promises to hit the right note in the six-furlong handicap.

The William Haggas-trained son of Pivotal has not been seen since being beaten at odds on at Chelmsford in December, but it is too early to be writing him off, particularly if the market speaks in his favour.

Plenty can be taken from the latest effort of Jurz and he is expected to go close in the extended mile handicap at Nottingham.

He was doing his best work late on over seven furlongs at Salisbury, where the post just came too soon.

Shared Equity should go very well in the Stobart Group Handicap at Newcastle. Jedd O'Keeffe's inmate has been in good order since he underwent wind surgery last summer and won a lovely prize at Epsom on Derby weekend.

Shared Equity is 3lb higher for this assignment, but he is clearly in a fine frame of mind and it will be interesting to see how he goes on his first start on the Tapeta.

Lingfield scorer Poetic Force might be able to eke out another win in the Vis-A-Vis Symposiums Handicap at Leicester, while Ninjago should not be discounted at decent price in the Terry Mcsherry Memorial Handicap at Hamilton.
