Classic Villager was no match for the first two home at Goodwood yesterday, when readily brushed aside when attempting to challenge 2f out.
Just a truncated shortlist today with just two qualifiers, namely…
Sedgefield 3.40 Mia’s Anthem
Sedgefield 4.40 Sendiym
Mia’s Anthem won easily enough at Hexham last time, in a race that fell into his lap somewhat, and this is a stronger test – but you can do no more than win.
Sendiym hasn’t won over fences for over two years but has ran well twice recently and has conditions to suit. Should be there or thereabouts but his yard hasn’t saddled a winner for six weeks now, which is a concern.
I’m going for…
Sedgefield 3.40 MIA’S ANTHEM
…for my best of the day, in the hope that the long trip from Ireland provides just rewards. Has more on his plate here though, so I’ll put him as a highlighted horse as opposed to a 1 pt recommended bet. Although at 5-2 BOG he is a fair enough punt.
