Horse of Interest… 3.30 Leicester- JUST GLAMOROUS… 2nd 10/1 decent run, no real excuse, collared late.
Well the last two ‘pace’ horses have won at 5/1 and 8/1 so we shall see if we can add another here. I thought 13/2 , 6/1, looked fair enough for an interest wager. This 4 year old made all in a Listed race at Ascot the last day at 33/1. It transpired after the race that he’d had a wind op and that there were valid excuses for his other poor runs this year. In theory there could still be more to come and he has a touch of class about him. He drops back into a handicap here and who knows if this mark will prove beyond him- hard to know really, and in that scenario you want a decent enough price. He should be able to lead this lot I think- I am not sure a couple of other pace setters will be quick enough to live with him, but time will tell. If he can dictate from the front he could be hard to catch. If his wind is sorted we could be about to see even more progress. He is only 4 still. I find it interesting that Oisin keeps the ride/wants to ride him- well it isn’t a negative in any case. I’ll have a go at those odds to find out.
That’s the lot for today.
