Custom Cut Fits Nicely: Horse Racing Predictions

Over the last decade, the Lockinge Stakes has been won by six 4-year-olds, three 5-year-olds and one 6-year-old.

Richard Hughes, Kieran Fallon and Frankie Dettori have all ridden two winners, whilst The Hannons have trained three (Senior 2, Junior 1), whilst Saeed bin Suroor has trained two. Meanwhile, Cheveley Park have owned two winners in that time and 4 of the last 14.

It’s an unusually big field this year with 18 runners, and here’s our opinion on the best of them.


Connections tried to make him a sprinter last year but he has some decent form at a mile. However, the Varian stable are 0/12 this week.


Lightly raced and highly-tried, but has yet to convince he’s a likely winner of this.

Breton Rock

Mainly excelled at 7 furlongs, and this likeable 5-year-old may run out of steam at the business end.

Custom Cut

Won 6 of his last 7, four of which have been over a mile on good ground, and could prove hard to pass. Won his first start of the season, and two of his trainer’s horses who performed well first time out improved again to win big races at York this week.


Impressive in winning a listed event last time out, but needs another big leap forward unless a handful of higher-rated horses all underperform.


Last year’s runner-up, but he was beaten comprehensively by Olympic Glory, and hasn’t been in as good a form in the lead up to the race this time round.

Night of Thunder

Last year’s 2,000 Guineas winner tops the ratings on that piece of form, but failed to win after. James Doyle rides for the first time, and Richard Hannon’s horses have mainly been improving for a run.


Richard Hannon fires a second arrow at the contest and he had some decent form last year, though seemed to get better as the season went on.


5-year-old filly kept in training by Cheveley Park, who could be making a fortune by breeding from her, and she certainly has the class to take a hand if fully wound up for her debut.

The Tip

If Night of Thunder is in top-form he’s going to be very hard to beat, but I’m convinced trainer David O’Meara is as good a trainer as anyone despite only being around for a few years. Custom Cut never gives up and he look sure to test both the stamina, fitness and resolve of all his rivals.

I’m finding Tim very frustrating to follow.
Last week he tipped two short priced favs that came nowhere,today he mentions NIGHT OF THUNDER as the likely winner but doesn’t advise a punt on it. Of course NIGHT OF THUNDER romps home and CUSTOM CUT comes nowhere.
So frustrating.

But Tim has made amends with his second selection.
