Daily Dabble, 8th July 2013
Sunday was a pretty frustrating day of two contrasting performances, if truth be told.
Full Toss folded very disappointingly late on, despite looking like having a decent chance at the 2 pole. He went backwards from there, eventually coming home last of the nine runners.
This meant that our second selection, Sagredo, was only running for pride and for the singles backers amongst you and even though he finished 2nd at 8/1, more frustration was in store for us there. He travelled best of all and took the lead effortlessly 2 out, but when push came to shove and he was asked for an effort on the run in, there was nothing there and the race, which was his to lose, was lost.
Monday, however, brings us the start of a new week and an opportunity to get back to winning ways, starting with the..
The names of Anthony Honeyball and Rachael Green are well-known to Geegeez readers and they look to be in control of a very decent prospect in this race today, Jaja de Jau. This 4 yr old is still unexposed and lightly raced after just six NH starts under belt and results have been improving of late for her. Fourth on her penultimate start at Worcester and then second last time out at Uttoxeter have both shown that she's ready to win, but she did seem to struggle on the run-in. The run-in here at Newton Abbot isn't a demanding as either of those two and this should help her close the race out better today. Rachael Green's 3lb claim will also come in handy today and as Jaja de Jau is only set to carry 10 st 6lbs anyway, she might well be quite favourably treated despite a fairly harsh looking 4lb rise for her recent second place run. The price of 11/2 looks pretty fair here.
Multi Bene really stepped up to the plate last season once sent out on handicap duty. Two wins and four second-place finishes from his seven handicap runs make him a live E/W prospect. His two wins came on good to soft ground and also on good to firm ground, whilst he is 3222 on A/W. He clearly acts well on pretty much whatever ground he is asked to tackle and the only reservation there can possibly be here today is the fact that he's now returning from a break of 200 days. His trainer has a decent enough record here and if he has Multi Bene firing from the off today, there's every chance of him kicking off his season with an 8/1 winner.
