Focail Maith 445K ran upto his mark lto, as it has to be said did both Dazzling Valentine and Nibani, however his career profile suggests that he’s ready to give a bigger performance very shortly and at 8/1 I’ll be backing him ew in this contest.
The 350W on 19th Dec had an interesting reaction from the Hcpper the winner of this 7f C6 hcp was awarded a 5lb rise in the weights for his 2l win. The 2nd placed horse was left on the same mark whilst the 3rd placed horse, a further 3.5ls behind was dropped a coulpe of lbs. However the fourth placed horse fully 7.75ls behind the winner was raised 3lbs. THIS ONE’S FOR EDDY 515K was the 4th horse that day and the possible reason for the OHs reaction doesnt appear in the RP form, but reading the Sportinglifes comments may give the reason
"in touch, ridden 4f out, soon outpaced, rallied over 1f out, kept on final, furlong opened 3/1 touched 7/2 £1400-£400 £700-£200 (x5) £1000-£300 (x4)
. Currently at 20/1 in this uninspiring 8 runner race he definitely looks worth supporting.
CALYPSO MAGIC 645K ran 3lbs better than his mark lto and certainly looks capable of winning today. The tough Veroon and Sunst Kitty look serious opponents but neither has a recent performance as good as the selection.
