A short one to start the night I know, but too good to pass up. He’s not quite like finding money in the street but is pretty close. The last four runs were very good efforts without getting in the winners’ enclosure.
Mick Halford’s runner is dropped in grade now to a claimer and he’s better than that, even off top-weight.
Has been over-looked in the market with so many in-form rivals in the line up. Her first spin off a nine-month break would have sharpened & tightened her no end. She also is only 1lb above her last win and looks ready to run a big race.
She’s been given two weeks to shake off the dreaded ‘bounce factor’ and we get our sprinkle of magic in the saddle with Wayne Lordan.
He’s a reserve so we’re going to have to bide our time to see if one comes out. But the new recruit for Damian English is a three-time winning seven-year-old. I’m not expecting fireworks, but she’s on a good mark and is an each-way price is she gets a run.
Definitely one for the tracker as the trainer has done us a couple of turns this season already.
This well handicapped Irish raider is just starting to run well again recently.
I’m not sure what tactics they will try tonight, but on a going day, he’s the best in here by some way. He’s adaptable trip wise and one of the bigger lads in the weighing room, David Nolan, takes the ride. When I see his name next to a fancy – it’s always a positive.
Had a nice introduction at Newmarket at 33/1 last season that did him the world of good as he came out the following month at Nottingham and won a touch snugly.
George Scott is in a very good position to have owners like the Niarchos family in his yard and I’m sure he was pleased when this gelding was handed an opening mark of 79. Jamie Spencer is up again.
Ran a cracker behind tonight’s top-weight Lord Cooper on his first run. He was just checked early and although it didn’t stop him winning, it didn’t help him either. The winner came from miles back that day, so having gone handy early on, was also was a negative for the Jet.
His first spin here can see him get his head in front at the 11th attempt. The trainer-jockey combo had a winner again yesterday.
Could be my best bet of the night.
