He’s declared for York again on Saturay, Grimes (Skybet Dash), and it may be worth holding off until after then.
6f on the likely soft ground will test his stamina, so he might just become a better price for Goodwood the following weekend.
Thanks for that, reet hard. I got him at a decent price a while back, though, and was surprised to see him down for the Dash; where I bet on him but not as much as I should have. But I’m always telling my wife that.
Apparently, he’s ginormous, but I’m still a bit worried about his weight, though I probably shouldn’t be – since it’s not in excess of 3 miles 2 over the sticks! Still, there’ll be one or two other decent sorts, surely.
I like the look of the one at the bottom, Fathsta, ridden by Sousa. Run very well at the course before, Sousa has a good record on him, and he’s drawn near some fancied runners (- who really knows what the advantage will be today?). Ground won’t be a problem. Is better off at weights with Hoof It, well up there on all Racing Post ratings, so looks cracking value at 25s.
