One for the alert list
Another going onto my alert list is OPEN DAY who was 2nd earlier in the afternoon. I've liked this horse for a long time and when he gets his preferred conditions, a right-handed track, the word "soft" in the description and a trip of 2m4f, he's worth following.
Of the others from my alert list that ran yesterday:-
SWNYMOR fell when beaten, but should come on for the run and will appreciate a bit of "give" in the ground NTO. That said off OR140 he'll need to improve to win. I'll give one more chance to show his worth.
FOX RUN unfortunately suffered a fatal fall and we'll never know what he was capable of but he sure showed enough promise.
JOIN TOGETHER couldn't get involved and will be better-off when the rains come and slow the horses down.
THEATRICAL STAR ran a good race for the opening 20-furlongs of his race but (predictably) ran out of stamina at that point and trailed in last. If you discount the fact that he didn't stay the trip, this was a good run and he could be overlooked NTO over a shorter trip.
I'll be keeping my selections to my alert list for the near future and I'm tempted to wager on them blindly after HAROUET won at 9/1 earlier this week.
