I tend to like backing unexposed three-year-olds in staying handicaps at this time of year and Getchagetchagetcha fits the bill.
He was very eye-catching last time in a Listed race at Goodwood and he looks sure to relish the conditions today. He wears first time cheek-pieces which could also sharpen him up.
Although there are only four runners – this is a competitive race, but I think he’ll go very close.
Tremwedge looks an interesting Irish raider for Ellmarie Holden’s yard – having shaped really well on all three of his career starts to date in maidens.
He was admittedly well beaten in those maidens, though they were decent races in the context of this race and the handicapper hasn’t been too harsh on him.
He cost 50k as a two-year-old at the breeze-up sales and his breeding suggests he should be much better than his opening mark of 56.
This doesn’t look the strongest race and I think he’ll prove difficult to beat.
