Lost Glory to continue improvement
No selections for the blog again yesterday.
There are a couple of jumps meetings today at Fontwell and Stratford. I can’t see much to interest me at Fontwell , but at Stratford we have what looks to be an interesting chase over the extreme trip of 3m4f at 3:20.
Last year’s winner Runshan takes part again but he was allowed an uncontested lead when he won and he won’t be given that today with Ere Alfie and Power Pack Jack in the field. As such, I feel they will cut each other’s throats making too quick a pace as you will need to stamina to burn to win this. One that looks to fit the bill is LOST GLORY. Only 6yo and on the upgrade, he had the speed to win over hurdles 16 days ago, but he looks an out-&-out stayer. Trainer Jonjo O’Neill knows what is needed to win this race having won it twice in the last 7 years. The going and trip will not prove a problem and we know the horse is race-fit and ready to go. Ladbrokes go 5/1 (best odds guaranteed) and I think that is good value in a race like this as I’d have him at more like 100/30.
Stratford 3:20, LOST GLORY, 1pt win at 5/1 (Ladbrokes, best odds guaranteed)
I have moved my “3-to-Follow” onto the adjacent pages for those who are interested and I will follow the progress of these horses through the season.
