FGR – Best Of The Day
The ground possibly went against Vicky’s Charm at Fakenham yesterday. She’s ran a fair race in defeat but as soon John Jenkin’s Galuppi loomed up on her outside the race was over.
Today’s shortlist consists of…
Chepstow 3.00 Mist The Boat
Fairyhouse 2.10 Westerner Point
Fairyhouse 2.45 Topper Thornton
Mist The Boat has the assistance of Richard Johnson today, but is unproven on soft ground and heralds from a yard which is really struggling for any semblance of form at the moment (has an RTF of just 8% in the last fortnight).
Westerner Point is relatively unexposed over timber and has ran well over fences the last twice. Reverts back to hurdles today, and if he stays this first attempt over 2m7f, has obvious claims.
Topper Thornton has progressed well in his two Beginners Chases to date. The concern is the drop back in trip (proven over 2m4f) where he is yet to make the frame in four attempts.
I’m siding with…
Fairyhouse 2.10 WESTERNER POINT @ 9-4 BOG
…who, providing he stays the trip, should be in the shake up here.
