Geological ran an absolute cracker last time, when more patient tactics were used. However – drawn close to the inside tonight – don’t be surprised if they try and force the issue and make the pace, even though he is 1 pound wrong.
He’s in form, and over the right trip tonight could be the right time for him.
Carried immediately jumps off the page when you look at this race.
The seven-year-old is in the form of his life at present, the importance of an inside stall position over the extended mile and a quarter cannot be underplayed and the selection has found himself birthed perfectly in three.
He has been campaigned over further in the past but this speed test is right up his alley.
Royal Blessing has not been with this outfit for too many runs, but came and got the money in explosive style at Wolverhampton two starts back.
Couldn’t follow up last time, however, but a return to Fundalk over an ideal distance of the extended mile and a quarter can spark him back to life, Manning in the plate so we won’t be wanting in that department.
Doctor Sardonicus stopped the clock in a very sharp time at Chelmsford when winning over the minimum last time.
His only other venture to the Wolverhampton venue was early on in his career when racing over much further, they now have found the key or maybe he’s just got much quicker with his racing. Martin Harley gets a great tune out of him to boot.
Teds Brother scooted in last time in an apprentice contest and so effectively is a winner with out a penalty!
Trip and track look ideal, it’s just hoping that the headgear has the same effect tonight. If it does he’s the standout form horse in the lineup and can give his rookie trainer her 2nd win.
Although Sir Gnet still remains a maiden, he looks to be getting better with his racing and ran very close up behind a hot pot of Ralph Becketts last time at Lingfield.
With his pedigree it was no surprise to see him contesting races over a mile and a half, however dropping back down in trip seems to have been the right move.
Friday’s extended one mile one furlongs might just prove the ticket and get that elusive victory.Gallop over to the latest racing odds on PaddyPower.com
