Horse Racing Preview – Ffos Las – 17th September 2017

Horse Racing Preview - Nottingham - 1st November 2017

Today’s horse racing preview comes from Ffos Las with 2 selections from the meeting.


14.30 Ffos Las – EBF Novices Stakes (7.2f)

This is probably going to be a contest that is not going to take much to win,with a few of these already having success. we also have a couple of debutante’s here from strong yards. Charles Hills Epic Fantasy makes his belated appearance, the son of Invincible Spirit was not renown for acting on soft ground, however the dam side Impressionism did have winning success on soft to heavy ground over today’s trip, a solid booking of a jockey inform in David Probert and any market support should be noted.

Both Christopher Wood and Greeneyedafghan are subsequent winners, the former trained by Ralph Beckett was seen winning on debut on good to soft at Salisbury, the third Al Jellaby franked that form last week, but the yard are not showing much from their juveniles over the last month with a poor return of 1-27 and it might be worth looking elswhere. Greeneyedafghan got off the mark also at the first attempt when winning here at Ffos Las over 6f on heavy ground.

The form of his Windsor run last time was confusing considering that he was only stepping in to Novice company, even though the sire Sepoy had a good record with give under foot,but he never ran above 6f in his career, so this step up could bring doubts that he will get the trip, Even the dam side ran only once over the distance without showing anything and was kept around 5-6f.

Despacito was firmly put in her place on debut in the same Novices contest that saw Greeneyedafghan back in 6th by nine lengths. He was in receipt of 9lb that day and she gets the same weight with her allowance, but I would expect William Muir’s charge to reverse that form this time around. Our Power represents a yard who are not renown for juvenile winners and have had just the one runner this season who showed nothing.

Thee are excuses that can be made here, but I am going to feel that Charles Hills has found an opportunity in what looks a very vulnerable feature to get his entry off to a win at the first attempt.



16.00 Ffos Las – Army Cadets Wales Supporting NSPCC Schools Services Handicap (16f) (0-90)

Peter Bowen’s Rolling Maul still looks ahead of the handicap here by some way off 85. Course and distance winner two runs and had what looked to have with plenty in hand in that 0-80 class. He then defied his 6lb penalty when just holding on at Newmarket in this company and had Look My Way beaten to two an a half lengths when conceding 15lb at the weights.

Look My Way deserves to be a lot closer this afternoon with the extra 1lb on board that should bring him a lot closer with Rolling Maul this time around, and with David Probert and Andrew Balding amongst the winners this week I am going to give him the nod that he can gain compensation for that defeat.

LOOK MY WAY : 2pt Win @ SP (BOG)
