Newbury Preview: Frontiersman and Libirsa Breeze fancied to take Newbury's Feature Race on Saturday

Frontiersman – 5-2 Geoffrey Freer Stakes with Betfred

Librisa Breeze – 5-1 Hungerford Stakes with Betfred

Trainer Roger Varian’s St Leger hope Defoe is a possible runner in Saturday’s Group 3 Betfred Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury before heading to Town Moor next month. The promising son of Dalakhani is a top price 11-4 with several bookmakers for the one mile five and a half furlong contest seen as an ideal stepping-stone to the final Classic of the season, despite having to compete against older rivals.

St Leger heroes Silver Patriarch and Sixties Icon ( 1999 and 2008 respectively ) both won the race two years after landing the world’s oldest Classic while other notable winners include the great stayer Ardross and another Ascot Gold Cup victor in Drum Taps. If Defoe is allowed to take his chance this weekend ( also has an entry in next week’s Great Voltigeur Stakes at York ) those 11-4 odds could look very generous but at this stage a much safer option is that of the Godolphin entry Frontiersman, available at 5-2 with William Hill, Ladbrokes and Coral.

The five-day meeting is one of the highlights of the horse racing calendar. Horse racing has been held at the famous Berkshire course since 1711 and tradition is a hallmark of the meeting.

Runner-up in both the Coronation Cup and Princess Of Wales’s Stakes on his two most recent starts, the Dubawi colt will appreciate the drop in class and is likely to go off a short priced favourite should the younger horse fail to turn up at the Berkshire venue. Trainer Andrew Balding has two possible contenders in Count Octave ( 10-1 bet365 ) and Horseplay ( 12-1 Skybet ) while John Gosden looks set to run the lightly-raced recent Newmarket scorer To Eternity ( 8-1 Betfred ).

Trying to second-guess just how many of those will turn up for the seven furlong contest is not easy but one horse who looks sure to line up is the Dean Ivory-trained Librisa Breeze, who is due a change of luck after meeting serious trouble in both of his starts this season.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">https://twitter.com/RacingPost/status/892391013217710081

A creditable fourth in Royal Ascot’s Diamond Jubilee Stakes, despite being bumped over a furlong out, prior to suffering all kinds of trouble when unplaced behind Breton Rock at the Goodwood Festival recently. The five-year-old was a 7-1 chance when the betting opened on Monday afternoon but following plenty of support is now a best price 5-1 with most firms including the sponsor.
