2 reasons, Zamorston.
All his last 5 runs have been in pattern company; he wouldn’t be running in a 7k race if his stable thought he was in any sort of form.
He has yet to prove he stays the distance. His lto effort suggests possibly not, and with Plum Pudding to tow them along, he will need to.
Was it the fact that he didn’t stay last time, or the fact that the horses that finished ahead possibly had the edge on him fitness wise. I thought it was a very encouraging run first time out and together with runs last season, looks as though 7f won’t be a problem.
Meehan has had 3 winners from his last 5 runners which bodes well, so shouldn’t see a problem with the horses well being. Even if he’s not quite up to living with the better class of horse at 7f, surely there should be no problem beating this lot tonight?
