Today’s ToteJackpot covers six races at Newmarket, on the opening day of the July Cup Meeting. Punters will fancy their chances, with five of the six featuring less than ten runners, with the six furlong cavalry charge of twenty runners at 3:00pm, the make or break for potential Jackpot winners

We “ease” into the first leg of the Jackpot, with the 1:50pm race, a mile and five furlong trip, featuring nine runners. Eagles By Day is the clear favourite here, at around 2/1 or so and has plenty of class one experience, which looks likely to be a factor here. The best of the rest, looks to be Nayef Road, who has shortened, but anything less than a win for the favourite, would be seen as a surprise here.
GG Selection - EAGLES BY DAY
Next up is the 2:25pm and features an even stronger favourite in Frankie Dettori ride and GG pick Visinari, who is odds-on to take the victory here and comes in off the back of a debut win at class four level. The most likely and arguably only danger is the useful Guildsman who also has a class four win to his name, along with an impressive third at class one level, last time out.
GG Selection - VISINARI
The tricky race of the ToteJackpot is the 3:00pm, as twenty runners charge down another six furlong sprint, in what is likely to see a dip in Jackpot players.
There are four runners in the mix here, with Magical Wish holding the advantage at the moment, while Moss Gill, GG pick Dazzling Dan and Aplomb all look capable of winning the race, with the rest 12/1 bar.
Magical Wish has some class two success and recently finished third at York, while the shortening Dazzling Dan has recently won here in May and looks strong. Moss Gill has also shortened significantly, having bagged two successive wins, albeit at a lower level, but is ultimately in strong form too, while Aplomb has also had success, but has not attracted the same buzz as his fellow competitors.
GG Selection - DAZZLING DAN
The second half of the ToteJackpot begins with 3:35pm race, a mile and a half trip, with just half a dozen runners taking part. The star of the race is without doubt Derby winner Masar, who goes in as strong favourite to take the win, with Mirage Dancer the most likely to give any competition.
Masar comes in off the back of a disappointing fifth in the Hardwicke at Ascot and will be looking for a strong performance here to bounce back, which could spell trouble for the rest. Mirage Dancer won the recent Tapster Stakes at Goodwood and is in great form, but ultimately, a monumental effort is needed to stop the Derby winner here.
The penultimate leg is the 4:05pm race, another six furlong run, with just nine runners, as this looks to be a two horse race, between favourite Dubai Paradise and Daily Times for this Fillies Maiden.
Dubai Paradise comes in on debut, where Charlie Appleby won the last two editions here and there is plenty expected of this two year old. Daily Times has a couple races of experience and picked up a second at Kempton last time out, but will find it tough, if the favourite does what is expected by many.
The last leg of this ToteJackpot gives punters still involved a great chance, with the 4:40pm featuring just six runners, over this mile trip.
Once again this looks to be a two runner fight for the victory, as the Frankie Dettori factor helps to put GG pick Turgenev in as favourite, ahead of Momkin who has found a second place at this level on recent runs. After those, Urban Icon has a chance too, although they have not found a class one win, although has finished second too.
This could be a close one here, so expect those holding potentially winning tickets, to be sweating, come the judge.
