Friday's horse racing NAP: Your best bets for today's racing from Callum Jamieson

IT'S been a quiet old week in the world of racing…

The Guineas is in town this weekend, but first things first lets find a winner on Friday.

CONSULTANT (Chepstow, 1.45) should relish another step up in trip and looked a proper staying type when third at Doncaster.

That was an encouraging return and he raced on the wrong side there, before plugging on under an easy ride.

A current mark of 71 still looks workable and Andrew Balding has enjoyed a solid start to the season.

The form of the Doncaster race is far from hot, and the rapidly improving Kirkland Forever presents a real threat.

But Balding's gelding looks ready to progress himself, and this looks the perfect opportunity to shed his maiden tag before plodding up the handicap.

Elsewhere on Friday…

SHAREEF STAR (Newcastle, 5.50) should be hard to beat in the opener for Sir Michael Stoute. Ryan Moore suffered a huge slice of bad fortune on this chap after he was backed off the boards last time out. There's plenty more to come.
