Pace Wins The Race (test: 0/6,0p = -6)
7.10 Chep – Spirit of Rosanna – I have looked at this one and I think she will go very close from the front here- but I have missed the price. Knowing she was 8s/10s makes taking 4s a bit foolish I think. Were she 6s+ she may have been worth a go still. She should lead here, and will relish this return to softer ground. She won’t have liked good to firm the last day and in any case may come on for the run. There could be more to come this year and she finished last year in progressive form. But, 4s is getting on the skinny side now. 10s last night would have looked decent now. Never mind. One to just watch and see if the ‘pace eyes’ are getting any better. Being more patient and waiting for them to jump of the page is probably the way to go.
The 3.00 Beverley looked interesting also- I thought Henley WON 13/2>11/4,made all… may be able to bag the rail as he can lead/races prominently. He has also run in a couple of races that have worked out well, esp the Southwell contest, and he is top rated on the speed figures here. He won’t mind any rain either. Neither will Jack Luey – and he can front run, and he also ran in the same Ponte race as Henley LTO. These two may well dominate from start to finish but I couldn’t decide so have left it. Another one for me to watch with interest but hopefully they both run well, they shouldn’t be far away.
Nothing more to add today.
