5 Furlong Sprint Handicaps – Test (0/2,2p, -2)
6.10 Wolvs – Krystallite – 5/1- 6/1
Two third places yesterday and given my approach with this test with any luck most of them will run well/be close to the money. Remember I’m using Geegeez + Inform Speed ratings as my ‘way in’ – focussing on those near the top of the speed ratings, and then seeing if I can make a case at the odds. This one has won after a similar break here before and I think there is every chance she can attempt to make all, if sharp enough and getting away. I think she may be the sort who sulks if not leading so we may know our fate early. The jockey has some decent stats to his name for a 7lb claimer and she is well handicapped with that taken off. Given her record after a break, she’s worth an interest (for test purposes! Don’t go backing these just yet unless you use these as a ‘way in’ and come to your own decision)
The other race of interest was the 4.00 Redcar…Carlton Frankie would be the one in the 4.00 but her price is long gone. She was 10/3 last night which looks decent now! I expect her to blast out, make all, and this mediocre bunch won’t have seen which way she’s gone. She should be doing that anyway, given her last two runs in decent C2s, this being a not so decent C4. The hood comes on, and provided this doesn’t come too soon, should be bang there/winning eased down/a shade cosily.
