Miss Serenity missed the break again a little but in reality wasn’t good enough even if she had made it okay. She travelled up and found absolutely nothing again when properly asked. One to avoid till they figure out the trip for her.
4:00 Nathan – Finally gets his return to the ground I think he wants, good ground with a little cut. He’s on a very handy mark of 89 and had 2 runs this year, one on the all weather and one on fast ground which wouldn’t have been for him. He steps back from 12f to 10f which I think may suit him. If he finds last years form he will be very difficult to beat of this mark in this field.
Nathan 3/1 Various 2 Point Win.
6:10 Bhodi – has all the hallmarks of a Sir Michael Stoute 3 year old Maiden/Novice winner. First 2 starts over 6f and 7f now takes a step up to 1 Mile. He has a cracking Niarchos pedigree and out of a Giants Causeway mare the step to 1 Mile Looks sure to suit. I can forgive his last run on good to soft ground, especially the fact he’s now going to the All Weather is a positive for me. Oisin Murphy does well with Stoute runner and well at Kempton. I think he’s massively over priced and could run a place minimum.
Bhodi 16/1 Various. 1 Point Each way.
2:50 Swiss Connection – Ran really well in his first 2 starts finishing 5th on debut and 2nd last time out at Newcastle. He looked to bump into a nice winner at Newcastle and I expect him to go very close here. It doesn’t look the strongest of Novice races even though there is a previous winner in the race I think Swiss Connection will be hard to beat.
Swiss Connection 13/2 Various 2 Point Win
5:30 Specific Gravity – a old friend for us on here. The 10 year old has been a great servant for connections and always try’s his heart out. He’s been falling down the handicap and now in grade which I think could be the key to him getting his head back in front. A small drop in trip should see him do his best work at the end, if he’s only a couple lengths off the lead he will have a real chance.
Specific Gravity 8/1 Betvictor 2 Point Win
