Today’s horse racing preview comes from Yarmouth and Lingfield. Frustrating day once more yesterday and it’s just hard to judge what is good in Ruth Carr’s yard these days, well at least we know Sovereign Debt is no flake of a horse.
I can only apologise for tipping up an odds on shot yesterday, if you read my blog you won’t see that on many occasions, was not that impressive either.
14.15 Yarmouth – Norfolk Chamber Of Commerce Maiden Fillies Stakes (6f)
A competitive maiden here which has attracted top trainers and the tissue favourite here is Roger Varian’s Hermosita. The yard’s juveniles are going well this year and this daughter of Exceed & Excel is just another that has to be taken seriously on debut.
John Gosden’s 180,000 purchase Tivoli has a very speedy pedigree being by Dark Angel and a half-sister to sprinter Elletelle, she would be worth noting in the market if positive vibes come across.
Simon Crisford’s juveniles I think have been much more disappointing this year, their two year lots are minimum, but still have to be respected none the less.
The selection though is a bit of a price, partnered by Ryan Moore and trained by Michael Bell who represents First Drive; this nicely bred daughter of Street Cry will represent our noble Queen. The yard has been hitting above their averages for juveniles this season.
First Drive : 1pt each way @ 7/1 (BOG)
15.15 Yarmouth – Well Balanced Ledger John H Simpson Accountant’s Fillies Handicap (0-70) (10.1f)
Theydon Girls got her head in front at the fifth time of asking over course and distance seven days ago, she won with some authority in a 0-55 handicap, takes a significant hike here and could be very vulnerable this time around.
Now I am becoming a sucker for this horse, Ms Gillard is far better than what she has been showing us, but 0-14 does not read well on her current resume.
For me she just finds the will to carry her runs through, but her recent Doncaster run when behind Livella Fella also saw the runner up Miss Ranger frank the form at the weekend.
Main danger has to come in the likes of Poppy Time who was beaten into fourth over course and distance only recently and danger once more. This is last chance saloon today with Ms Gillard, Crowley on board a big plus.
Ms Gillard : 2pt win @ 4/1 (BOG)
15.45 Yarmouth – Racing Welfare Handicap (0-80) (8f)
I actually like just the one entry here from the Marco Botti yard in Moolazim. Found all sorts of trouble when beaten favourite at Lingfield.
That was a 0-85 which has resulted in the winner going on to conquer at Goodwood, the second and third have won on that merit. Moolazim will have to really dig deep to win but very capable.
Willie Haggas’s Hakeem was impressive when winning on debut over course and distance forty-nine days ago. The third that day was a 150/1 shot and without sounding condescending he has gone on to frank that form.
Moolazim : 2pts each way @ 11/2 (BOG)
20.20 Lingfield – Takethereins17 Fillies Novice Stakes (6f)
Another each way outsider here who represents Tom Dascombe’s yard in Silver Bullet. Her fifth on debut reads quiet well when behind Main Desire who won the Marygate Fillies Stakes at York. It’s a race that will no doubt throw up winners.
Philimore of Richard Hannon’s would not have to be anything special to run well on debut. Daughter of Invincible Spirit through the blood line of Roy, so definitely a danger to all.
Silver Bullet : 1pt each way @ 12/1 (BOG)
