Although this seven furlong trip isn’t one he’s overly accustomed to GUNMETAL’S latest appearance indicated this step up in trip might not be a bad idea at all. Let’s not forget he does have success over this distance previously so it shouldn’t be as big an issue as some may feel.
The seven year olds 4th here at Newcastle last time out was encouraging and he re-enters these stalls with less weight to carry now. The booking of hockey Ben Curtis also catches the eye and I’m more than happy to side with this consistent type, especially at an each way price.
I’d be a liar if I didn’t admit to following this horse profusely throughout the season but finally I feel today is the day that SUWAAN is going to repay my faith. Already attracted plenty of support in the market and still remains a double figure price. Ruth Carr is known for landing various plots in handicaps such as this and as a former course and distance winner who now sits at 11lbs below the mark he carried to his sole all-weather victory I’m happy and more confident to follow him once again as a solid each way player,
Another sprint race and another former course and distance winner this time in my namesake ROARING RORY. Don’t fret I’ve not done the classic house wife’s trick of backing a horse for their name although judged on my latest form it might be a sounder alternative to my method of finding ones I like.
Never the less the Ollie Pears trained runner has won here off a much bigger mark and surely off this low weight is primed to pounce sooner rather than later.
Current market leader Firsteen holds very obvious claims but I’d rather side with the aforementioned outsider who should go better than his price suggests.
