Newmarket Handicap 2020 Tips

The 2020 Newmarket Handicap looks set up for the horses low in the weights to dominate down the straight.
Recent years have shown that the 3YOs are always hard to beat, the latest being Sunlight in last year's edition.

We will be following Loving Gaby down on the minimum and Halvorsen who is a sneaky player at double figures.

Newmarket Handicap Best Bet - Loving Gaby

This filly was the third place getter in the Lightning Stakes where she arguably could have won the race had she been in the right part of the track.

She has shown that she is well and truely up to this class being a Manikato winner and a VRC Sprint place getter.

She is a valuable filly who will get in this race with 52.5kg, just 2kg more than what 3YO filly Sunlight won with in 2019.

She has had the two runs down the Flemington straight, 3YOs have a great recent record in the race and she has an elite turn of foot low in the weights, this race just looks perfect for her.

Newmarket Handicap Value Bet - Halvorsen

His run in the Oakleigh Plate was very good against the bias.

This boys record down the straight is faultless and with 53kg, he will be even better.

We aren'y sure which of the star 3YOs will be running, so the less the better for this horse.

If he can find himself on the right part of the track with some open space, he is a genuine light weight chance to run a big race.

Although he has only had the one start at Group One level, he seems to grow a leg down the Flemington straight and at double figures, he is one that must be thrown in multiples.
