13:10 Ffos Las
Templier won readily at Warwick and thus is well in on the weights today. He shouldn’t have a problem with the trip or the ground, winning on both last time out. The Warwick victory might give him the boost he needed. However, this race might come a bit soon and he doesn’t have a brilliant record at this class.
Jeu De Mots has won at Ffos Las before but has since joined Max Young’s stable. He has nice form at this mark and has been treated nicely in the weights. Moreover, connections are going well. However, he has to defy a nine month break and this seems a tough race off such a long break.
Lots Of Luck has won over course and distance last year and will not mind the heavy ground. He’s a dual winner at this class and connections are in fine form. He needed the run at Fontwell and wasn’t disgraced behind some smart performers. He will benefit from his wind surgery and could well give those at the top of the betting something to think about.
LOTS OF LUCK (E/W)
Minister For Magic is one of a few in this race that have already ran successfully before. She was a large price that day but won impressively. She’s nicely bred and Jason Watson is in nice form. However, she’s been penalised for that victory and this is her first start in Britain, so it might be worth keeping an eye on how she runs today.
Fiesta De Vega won on his debut at Haydock, then followed that up with a second placed finish over course and distance. He is probably the form choice in this race, given that beat the smart Roberto Escobarr on debut. Moreover, he shouldn’t have a problem with the surface. However, he has a massive weight today and has been absent for 15 months. He is, however, still the danger.
Devilry makes her debut today and is nicely bred, being a full sister to the smart Pondus. That suggests that she will relish the one mile and four furlongs trip. She has a nice weight and is unexposed, as opposed to some of her rivals. She stands a good chance at making her debut a winning one.
