I looked long at Insharah as it does have good figures and sire stats. I don’t know if it is going to stay the trip here and at 2/1 will give it a swerve.
4.30 – The fav Holiday Magic may well hose up, but he looks to be the sole front runner. The stats show that hold up horses have an advantage over this trip, therefore…two e/w punts on these.
STEEL TRAIN 8/1 – Won well lto despite drifting to the slower far side rail here. I feel it has the right draw and the field size should ensure it stays straight.
GREY MIRAGE 33/1 (which was also the name of Desert Orchid’s sire) – I really think this is a big price.Has three good recent L Taylor figures and has the Master Inform rating. Has a good figure from it’s one run at Wolves on Tapeta as well though has yet to run at Newcastle.
8.30 – PLEADINGS 7/2 – I backed this at 15/2 last night but is now down to 7/2 unfortunately.
