3.45 Chepstow – LAND OF EAGLES (2pt win – 13/8 generally)
LAND OF EAGLES has shown enough to think he can land a race of this nature and gets the vote on a quiet Monday. He has some useful form to his name, including his latest Yarmouth second when chasing home a well-handicapped rival, and the return to Novice company should see him go extremely close. He was entitled to need his seasonal return at Beverley when far too keen for his own good, and he is a potential improver stepping up in distance today, his form ties in with one or two of these, and he should get a strong pace to aim at.
9.00 Wolverhampton – DASHING SPIRIT (1pt each way – 18/1 generally)
It’s slightly frustrating that DASHING SPIRIT’S price has markedly downed from the 66/1 he was overnight. However, some juice is still left this morning as he looks to bounce back to form for his new trainer Gary Moore. He rates a risky proposition after being out of sorts for his former yard being sent off at odds of 500/1, 250/1, 250/1 and 250/1. Still, Gary Moore is a significant upgrade. He offered plenty of promise with William Knight as a two-year-old, with the best of his efforts coming at this venue when he finished second to one rated 82.
The form of that race could not have worked out better, and he was a huge eye-catcher behind the smart 103-rated Bullfinch when never off the bridle – likely looking for a handicap mark. His opening rating of 77 looked fair, but he is now down to 62 and into a Class 6 event for this stable debut. This is a poor race with all of his rivals exposed, and he may be worth rolling the dice with.
