Good God – a winner!
Broughton got the job done well enough in the end at Stratford yesterday, despite idling, returned at a BSP of 3.45.
Today’s shortlist is…
Veliefendi 2.00 Connecticut
York 3.00 Fort Del Oro
Fontwell 3.25 West End
Connecticut became unbalanced at Goodwood last time having run away with a Listed race prior at Pontefract, and will be better suited by a return to a more conventional track here.
Fort Del Oro is a filly I like. She’s progressive and should be involved come the business end, but is plenty short enough at 13-8 considering she was never quite picking up the leaders on decent ground last time out.
West End is hard to win with and is tried in a visor again today and his sole proven effort came over 3m.
It’s tight, but I’d be inclined to side with…
Veliefendi 2.00 CONNECTICUT
…for my best of the day. I’ll put him up as a highlighted horse as opposed to a 1 pt recommended bet, as going reports and draw bias often have to be taken on trust at these far flung tracks due to a lack of incoming data.
