FGR – Best Of The Day
Halo Moon ran a fair race in defeat at Lingfield yesterday when possibly running into one, as Venetia Williams’ Kings River looks a potentially useful recruit to the winter game.
Today’s shortlist is made up of…
Wetherby 2.25 Indian Voyage
Fontwell 1.40 Brave Deed
Kempton 6.45 Hamelin
Indian Voyage lost his confidence last season after falling at Wetherby. Finally returned to winning ways at Kelso last time, and comes into this race proven in every respect so has obvious claims.
Brave Deed makes his chasing debut having won an Exeter handicap hurdle last time. Again, has obvious claims if translating that form over the larger obstacles on this much tighter track.
Hamelin has his first run for George Scott whose taken over the reins of the Lady Cecil yard. Likely to get an uncontested lead here providing he can overcome his outside draw, and this gelding is going the right way.
All three of these could win. Marginal preference is for…
Wetherby 2.25 INDIAN VOYAGE @ 4-1 BOG
…who may be able to follow up his Kelso win here now that his confidence has been restored.
