Starlit Cantata took her time to wear down Light Wave at Lingfield yesterday, but wear him down she did to prevail by a neck, returned at a BSP of 6.6 with 6-1 available BOG.
Today’s shortlist is Norfolk bound, being…
Fakenham 1.10 Wily Fox
Fakenham 3.10 Dainty Diva
Fakenham 3.40 Road To Freedom
Wily Fox was probably flattered to get within 41/2 l of Oh Land Abloom at Market Rasen last time as the the winner was idling badly. Hard to argue that this is his optimum trip and further rain wouldn’t go amiss either as he’s only ever won on the soft.
Dainty Diva is not the most prolific but won as she liked at Fontwell last time and only needs to repeat that effort to have a good chance here. She won’t be inconvenienced by the forecast rain either.
Road To Freedom has yet to win over fences and does need to brush up on his jumping. Hacked up when last seen over timber at Southwell in May, but that was over 3m and he probably needs better ground, assuming he’s fit enough to do himself justice.
For my best of the day I’m going with…
Fakenham 3.10 DAINTY DIVA
…who goes unpenalised for her recent Fontwell win and merits a 1 pt recommended bet here.
