Stall 1 is usually a good draw at Beverley but the ground on the rail was much slower and those who raced against it were at a huge disadvantage. Airflow, the 2-1 favourite, could only finish a modest third after making the running but this run was much better than it looked.
Ed Walker’s 3yo newcomer missed a beat at the start in the 1m4f fillies’ novice stakes before keeping on into a 10-1 fourth of eight. She’ll improve for this and can be supported next time.
Found only Mr Wagyu too good in the 6f handicap at Ayr last Monday where he was not helped by getting squeezed out at the start. A bigger field and stronger pace will suit next time and he also caught the eye on his reappearance when up against a pace bias at Newcastle.
With the inside rail riding slower at Thirsk last Monday, 2-5 favourite Ginger Max was always going to struggle to complete his hat-trick after David Noonan decided go rush him up from his wide draw to make the running. His wins at Redcar and Yarmouth came under more patient tactics and his fourth place is easily forgiven.
Raced against the inside rail at Beverley where the ground was deepest and could never strike a blow from mid-division. He was already in the tracker after an eyecatcher against the draw and pace bias at Leicester last summer. Headgear could help.
IT’S NOT MY FAULT
All nine stall 1 runners finished unplaced at Beverley’s meeting last Tuesday because of the ‘dead’ rail and Paul Midgley’s filly never had a prayer, eventually trailing home in ninth place.
Another who made the running against the ‘dead’ rail at Beverley on Tuesday, doing well to finish fourth in a 1m2f handicap. He’s in at Chelmsford on Saturday.
NOT ON YOUR NELLIE
Nigel Tinkler’s filly had a useful draw in stall 7 but 7lb claimer Izzy Clifton tried to challenge on the ‘dead’ rail which put paid to her chances. Her f16-1 fourth to Bal Mal is worthy of a major upgrade.
Failed in his bid for a fourth straight reappearance success but had to settle for a two-length second. The track was not helping his come-from-behind style and he was also drawn away from the pace.
Having won from off the pace at 20-1 here on his debut for Ronald Thompson it was surprising to see Andrew Elliott elect to make the running on the ‘dead’ rail. It was a huge effort to finish second by a neck and he’ll surely go one better next time.
