The official explanation for Dainty Diva’s flop at Fakenham yesterday was that she was taking on better class animals, but given the way that she weakened, it may be that the race simply came too soon.
Today’s shortlist consists of…
Sedgefield 1.00 Amuse Me
Sedgefield 2.00 Russian Royale
Chelmsford 6.40 Mossgo
Amuse Me is a horse I like, but although he acts on soft going he’s yet to win on it, and you can’t help but feel that the ground has gone against him today.
Russian Royale has only ever won on good ground and his record going left-handed is moderate to say the least. He also heralds from a yard struggling for form.
Mossgo ran well when second at Lingfield last time and has good proven attributes. The concern is that he may get in a battle for the lead with Pearl Noir, and he’s also yet to get his head in front in this grade.
Amuse Me would of been the selection had it not been for the rain, so instead I’m going for…
Chelmsford 6.40 MOSSGO
…as my best of the day. Unlikely to get an uncontested lead here though, so I’ll put him up as a highlighted horse as opposed to a 1 pt recommended bet.
