Daily Dabble, 15th July 2013
No joy yesterday, I'm afraid. Loose Preformer was beaten by just a length in to second place at our advised 6/4, whilst Momkinzain was a similar distance off the winner when finishing 3rd at 5/4 (we'd advised 6/4 there, too)
I'm back in the chair today and hopefully I can pick up where I left off on Saturday with a couple of evening runners, the first of which runs in the...
Aloha had a couple of today's rivals behind her when finishing second last time out at Lingfield just over a fortnight ago and had she not run into serious traffic on her journey from the back of the pack to try to take the race, then the margin between her and those re-opposing today would have been greater and the way she was staying on suggests that she may very well have won.
A step up in trip shouldn't be an issue here today and providing she can stay out of trouble this time, I expect her to break her maiden tag at 6/4, which will then hopefully give us 2.5pts to run onto the...
Where Frontline looks a very warm order indeed. Considered good enough to be as short as 4/1 on debut, despite the race being a 23-runner affair at Punchestown. He travelled very well until late on that day and this looks a far weaker assignment than last time out. he's sure to have come on for the experience and although he was back in seventh last time out, he was only beaten by seven lengths. Some of the six ahead of him have run since and notched up some decent results. He looks short at 13/8, but I think he'll go even shorter as the day progresses and I'm happy to see Katie Walsh on board for her only ride of the day.
Back Aloha & Frontline in a double with Paddy Power paying just over 11/2 BOG (5.5625/1)
