Sam Turner has fancied selections running at three meetings on Wednesday, including two nice-priced all-weather handicappers.
Something Lucky (Lingfield, 3.55)
SOMETHING LUCKY is on a long losing run but there are definite signs of a revival since joining Michael Attwater and he is looking better handicapped now.
No slouch on his day, the selection has won a highly respectable 10 races from 96 starts and has made the first three in over 40. That’s a tremendous record and a career-winning total of nearly £140,000 says it all.
The last victory was at Chelmsford in mid 2018 but he has struggled to get his head back in front since off marks as high as 84. There have been plenty of near misses, particularly for new connections and he was unfortunate not to win over course and distance in December when rattling home but denied by a short head.
Most of Something Lucky’s wins have been over the minimum trip so it was no surprise to see him out of the places here over 6f last time. He drops back to 5f this afternoon and with a healthy portfolio of speed figures, looks a solid each-way bet.
Main Fact (Warwick, 4.15)
MAIN FACT could turn out to be a bargain buy at £6.000 for new connections and very nearly won on his return to action after a 600-day layoff.
Quite well backed, David Pipe’s inmate looked to have every chance but began to tire and make mistakes late in the race. That race-rustiness made all the difference as he went down fighting by just half a length in an exciting three-way finish.
Main Fact hasn’t been rushed back but should be fitter and the three-time Flat and NH winner will have conditions to suit.
Family Fortunes (Kempton, 7.30)
FAMILY FORTUNES has finally been given a little respite by the handicapper and can take advantage back at his optimum trip, at his favourite venue.
The selection has won here three times but has been running over distances that stretch his stamina since returning from a two-month break. He hasn’t run badly over further but his pace should be more effective back over a mile and his track speed figures put him in with a big shout.
