Yesterday was a bit frustrating, with a NR and a couple of results not going our way, but we at least backed a winner to boost confidence a bit with Persistent at Galway. Just one selection today...
1.45 - Wafeer 9/4 generally
Wafeer - This son of Equiano may well prefer slightly better ground, but a step back up to 6f is certainly needed on the evidence of his Sandown second over 5f last month, where he was doing his best work late in the day after a slow start from a wide draw; he posted a good speed figure and this is arguably the smartest bit of form on offer in this 6f Novice Stakes. I am currently trialling a lay betting/opposable horses method for a GG column (if I can make it profitable in practice!) and I may add Alwasmiya, who has a bit more to find on her Newcastle debut than current odds suggest. Kevin Ryan’s once-raced Knighted is a bit of a threat, but I’m hopeful the experience of Wafeer can stand him in good stead to land fair odds of 9/4.
