Another from the Alert List
I was right about about both of the morning fav’s in each race I reviewed. In the Carlisle race, Duke Of Malfi made it 5 visits to Carlisle without a win, but it was more the going that did for him. He has won on heavy going only once from 10m starts now – take heed. My selection STORM SURGE never looked like being involved and when impeded by the falling horse 3-out he was done for.
At Ludlow, the morning fav Shadow Dancer looked a complete rogue and should be ignored from now on. Even so, my selection RESTEZEN D’AMOR was unable to get involved despite travelling very strongly to 4-out which he met all wrong and was lucky to stay upright. That he battled-on says something for his resolution and this 6yo will have better days ahead.
As such, that’s 2pts lost on the day, which means I’m 3.70pts down this month.
At Huntingdon today, in the 2:10, from the Alert List runs CESIUM. He is dropped in trip from 23f to this more suitable extended 20f, and the ‘good’ going will suit him too. He has won going RH (at Leicester) and altho’ he was disappointing when running in this race last year, he was dropped-out the back which were tactics that didn’t suit. He won his next race when reverting to more aggressive tactics, and he could do well at long odds here.
There is nothing at Taunton that excites me, so I will give that meeting a miss
