STATS/ANGLES OF INTEREST
- 5.05 Wetherby… just some notes really…this looks an interesting little chase to me and having had a look through I am fairly confident that one of the top three in the market should be winning this…Monbeg River, Helium or Owen Na View… WON 9/2 for what its worth I have had a little tickle on Owen Na View with a saver on Helium. The pace angle is what drew me in. Own Na View is a tricky sort but if he gets his own way up front is dangerous. He gets first time blinkers here which may help. They may spark him up and he may hate them of course so not one to go mad on but I thought 9/2 was ok. I expect Brennan to try and make all here- he had better as that is my ‘way in’! If he can control this from the front he has a great chance. That last race at Newton Abbot – when watching it live I thought they were going far too quick up top. Owen paid the price for trying to live with Next Sensation- he couldn’t do that. Next Sensation, even in his latter years, is just a better/quicker/more slick horse on the front end really. Now he either got very tired from trying to engage in a battle for such a distance and/or sulked. The trainer remains in decent form 3/11,6 places last 14 days. So, on a fairly quiet day for me I thought he looked of some mild interest. Helium, despite his ageing years, is fairly lightly raced in this sphere and has some decent chase form in the book. He should enjoy these conditions, is fit and the trainer is in form. He could give the selection most to do. Monbeg River- he has an ok record fresh but was thumped by Owen Na View at Perth in April – getting outpaced on that ground/class to my eye. If this were soft I may be more inclined to be with him. If he won I would not be totally surprised but I just think the other two have a bit more going for them- fitness/proven class/red hot trainer form. It also looked like the capper may have had him at the back end also, albeit there could be more to come this year. If it is clear he is keeping tabs with them on the way round I could be in trouble. A fascinating little contest and maybe these will finish 1-2-3 in some kind of order! Readying the egg as all three end up tailed off…
That will be all for today.
