Newsboy’s top tips for ITV Racing cards at Newmarket and Haydock

DUBAI MIRAGE can show he's the real thing with a victory in the bet365 Cambridgeshire Handicap (3.35) at Newmarket this afternoon.

After running down the field in the Britannia Handicap at Royal Ascot in June, the Saeed bin Suroor-trained son of Dubawi, who had scored at Kempton Park six days earlier, underwent a gelding operation.

The surgeon's knife looked to have worked the oracle when the three-year-old ran out the emphatic four-and-three-quarter-length winner of a one-mile handicap at Haydock Park at the beginning of last month.

Dubai Mirage failed in the follow-up bid when third to Raaeq at Sandown Park 15 days ago – but found the funeral cortège pace against him.

The lack of a gallop won’t be an problem with 29 runners charging up the straight nine furlongs and that should play to my selection's strengths.

Bin Suroor has booked rising star apprentice Stefano Cherchi for Dubai Mirage who, with just six outings under his belt, still has the scope to improve past his British Horseracing Authority mark of 97.
