Some pretty mediocre racing again on Tuesday and it looks as though another quiet day is in store…
Handicap hurdle/chase portfolio– live test
1.35 Fake – Shaky Gift (2nd run after break)
STATS/ANGLES OF INTEREST
Not much else stands out really but a couple of ‘notes’…
I have been through the Lingfield AW stats and unless mistaken i think HIGH MARK in the 12.55 is the only qualifier. He is a bit short for my liking but the trainer does well here with that type.
1.45 Southwell looks an interesting handicap hurdle- well in the context of the poor racing today, at least there are 4 places to aim at (I am sure one will come out to make it 15!) Native Display (UP,no market move,ran no sort of race) 10/1 goes for my TTP stats and the market may be some indication as to his chance given his profile (fell heavily LTO,60+ days off,reverts to hurdles but unexposed enough in this sphere. Following this particular stat should pay over time with any luck) BALLYCASH 9/1 goes again here (4th… hmmmm,not sure what to make of that, could be he just doesn’t find anything off bridle)- i mentioned him LTO on his handicap debut- he had caught my eye on his final maiden run. Well, he got no further than the first hurdle there much to my annoyance. Maybe going back LH will help. I can’t be sure this short run in will play to his strengths but NTD is 2/9,4 places in C4 handicap hurdles here in the last 5 years. One final go for me at that price also
That will be all for today.
