SOMEWHERE SECRET – (4.25 Redcar, 0.5pt each-way, 20/1)
SOMEWHERE SECRET completely blew the start and finished well beaten when I backed him on his debut for Rebecca Menzies at Newcastle last month and he didn’t have a prayer from stall 1 at the same venue next time, doing quite well to finish just over five lengths behind the winner when 80-1.
His patient style was at a major disadvantage at Nottingham next time and though only ninth of 14 he fared fifth best of those to come from off the pace and again shaped as though the step back up to 6f might suit. He’s back down to his last winning mark, looks well drawn in stall 6 and should get a good tow into the race on the far side from So Grateful (stall 2) and Driftwood (stall 3).
BRONZE RIVER – (7.30 Newcastle, 1pt win, 9/4)
BRONZE RIVER, narrowly beaten over course and distance on his debut for Mick Appleby, impressed me when scoring at Redcar last time as he came late from a high draw (stall 9 of 18) when low draws enjoyed a big advantage. The three who chased him home were drawn 3, 2 and 4 of 18 and the other winners on the day came out of stalls 2, 5, 3, 4, 2, 1 and 3.
