Bet of The Day…
4.30 Bev – Tin Pan Alley – 1 point win – 10/1 (BV/PP/BetfairS) 9/1 (gen)
Going for a 9 year old is a bit fraught with danger but I thought he ran with promise the last day after a substantial lay off and the hope is that he builds on it, rather than bounces. He led for around 1 mile the last day, before being challenged, and fading in the final furlong. I am hoping that was down to fitness and odds of 20/1 suggested he needed the run/wasn’t expected to compete. He drops a couple of pounds and drops in class here. D Allan also takes over and he is the go to man for this trainer. They are 4/15,7p in handicaps at the track. And he does have a good touch with these older horses it seems. IF the horse repeated his two runs here from June 2015 when he won comfortably both times, he would out-run these odds. The final piece is the pace – they will try and make all again and from stall 6 should be able to get out and across. Lean On Pete likes to get on with it also, but is drawn a bit wider and is a bit more inconsistent. He has also been running in C6. Hopefully he can’t lay up with the selection and leaves him alone. But if he does try and challenge hopefully Allan is sensible. I don’t think he has to lead, but it would be ideal if he could. Maybe he needs another couple of runs to get going but I was happy to roll the dice.
That is all for today.
