Won here four runs back and didn’t seem suited to Newcastle or Kempton after that. The return here was much better and a reproduction of that would be good enough. He just wants to get a lead until they turn in and he’s drawn perfectly to get the box seat.
Still looking for that elusive first victory so we might get a bit of a price on him. He’s dropped down the weights as a result of not winning and has now hit an all time low of 54. He will need to settle as this trip is his limit stamina wise, so don’t expect to see him early on.
Bumped into an in-form runner last time in Honour Oak who runs later on the card (7.30pm) off a 9lbs higher mark. That makes me think the Coach has got of lightly with only a 3lb rise. He loves to ping the lids and slide along up front & with Gary Halpin (3) negating the weight rise, he can go gate-to-wire tonight.
Did us a favour here three weeks back and can repeat the dose tonight. A 6lbs hike looks tough as he only won by a head, but the front two were a little way clear of the chasing pack. He’s well drawn again close to the paint and is only running here for the third time so we can expect more than a pinch of improvement.
Michael O’Callaghan’s runner was unlucky not to win his last start. He was flying when he finally got properly balanced but ended up getting disqualified from second and placed third behind Oneoveryou. He’s only tried the 6f once and that was very early on in his career. Three runs over the minimum 5f recently here have been solid performances. A mark of 80 looks a long way from his ceiling, Sean Davis takes off a valuable 7lbs, don’t worry about the trip he’ll get it no problem.
Deserves another win after a string of cracking efforts, the deciding factor is the pace of the race as he needs a gallop to run at. We should get that tonight with a few rabbits in the line up and was a neck third to Jim Bolger’s Heavy Weight last time when they went very slow. Tonight’s race should set up perfectly for him.
