FGR – Best Of The Day
Bachasson only just failed to reel in stablemate Long Dog at Fairyhouse yesterday, and I’ve got no qualms about making the bet as he could of easily of collected on another day.
Today’s shortlist is made up of…
Plumpton 2.10 Millicent Silver
Plumpton 3.10 Leith Hill Legasi
Wolverhampton 3.00 Brassbound
Millicent Silver is not the quickest, but she is game and she thrives in the mud, as she showed when winning a similar race at Uttoxeter last time and connections are hopeful of a good run.
Leith Hill Legasi made all to win at Chepstow last time and has obvious claims here on that effort, but is unlikely to get an uncontested lead today and has failed on all three attempts over this trip to date.
Brassbound shaped with promise when second under a large burden at Southwell last time. Should come on for that run but is unproven on tapeta and trainer Mick Appleby feels that this gelding is best over 2m at Southwell.
All three of these have decent claims but…
Plumpton 2.10 MILLICENT SILVER @ 4-1 BOG
…has a marginal edge on proven ability. Stan James were a stand out 4-1 at the time of posting.
