Today’s Info 16th May 2014
Goods afternoons. A later than planned column today and not because of the train wreck of yesterday! Secret Gesture did her thing and was another second for the month, Fury was well backed and curled up like a ball when it came to get going whilst Herostatus couldn’t get into the finale and didn’t outrun the sp.
Today it’s the Yorkshire Cup and like James Boyle in his preview piece I can see the claims for Gospel Choir and also the concerns for Tac De Boistron but it’s neither for a selection. High Jinx is effective at this shorter trip than has been his targets of late, also he acts well on decent ground despite being perhaps considered in need of some cut. In fact his record on good ground includes an excellent run here and with a gelding operation and a prep run all done he looks overpriced for me.
One other bet away from York is Angelic Upstart, a horse I’ve always liked but hasn’t got near the hopes held for him but is returned to turf after a good win on the sand and his back end turf form from last year was excellent. Handy pilot takes off a few pounds and with one main rival to beat looks fair odds.
Have a good day and good luck.
York 2.45 – High Jinx 0.75pt e/w – 25/1 Victor and Stan James, 22 and 20s general
