The Messenger has one bet for Newmarlet on Friday and it is Swiss Storm in 4:05 contest.
Newmarket 4.05: Swiss Storm
A classic hopeful at the start of the year, things have not gone to plan for Swiss Storm in 2017, but some compensation can be gained in this modest handicap that closes the card.
Impeccably bred out of a twice listed race mare and a son of Frankel, he is also related to several group winners from the same stable of David Elsworth. He is also a huge horse and has understandably taken time to grow into his frame.
Nevertheless when he made all to win a Newbury maiden on his second start last season, plans of Group 1 glory were being made. He was pitched into the Dante Stakes at York, but pretty much bolted early on and gave away all chance in the first 2f. We did not see him again until the beginning of last month at Epsom, but the heavy ground that day seemed against him. He should enjoy the faster going today and it look significant that Elsworth is persevering with one more go this season, rather than simply put him away for the winter.
