Today’s Info 30th October 2014
A couple of races to focus on today and a bit of a flyer perhaps in the first is taken with Nakuti who has been a regular feature in this column over the summer.
This is a second crack all the All Weather for Sylvester Kirk having started this term at this track in April and running well to finish second on that occasion. She’s been running with credit all term since and rising nicely through the ratings but is overlooked once again in the market here to give Martin Harley a good spin. I really thin a mile is ideal for her, she can get a nice rolling run at this trip and eliminate some of the misfortune that has followed her at shorter trips. They did try the distance behind Muteela at Ascot and she wasn’t the luckiest, this is a chance to give the trip another go in a decent race and I expect a bigger run that the odds might.
The other race is at Stratford where a really competitive race goes to post at 3.40pm and the one I like is the returned to fences Like Minded who is at his best on a decent terrain and at this trip. The Skeltons will be glad to see it staying dry enough and with a fitness edge in the bag thanks to a pipe opener the ten year old has been set a nice task over fences. Ohio Gold and Simply Wings ( ran in this last term ) are the ones to fear at the weights I think but with fitness doubts about them I’m going with the former Nicholls trained charge who can make it count today.
He hasn’t jumped a fence for some time being kept to hurdles by his new trainer but he resumes in sphere off an attractive perch and hopefully is schooling with encouragement for them to get back over the bigger obstacles now.
2.50 Lingfield – Nakuti 0.75pt e/w – 33/1 General
Stratford 3.40 – Like Minded 0.75pt Win – 9/2 General
