Although the Good Lord took the seventh day off as rest, my betfair account doesn’t yet allow me the same privaleges so it’s off to Southwell for the best bet of the day in Zamhrear in the 1m handicap. She has really come to herself of late, winning a banded race and handicap on 2 of her last 4 starts whilst her other 2 starts in that period were an outclassed in listed company and good second (ahead of Just Bond) to Atlantic Story. She looked to score with plenty in hand over course and distance last time, tending to idle and hang left in front after travelling very smoothly to the front. She’s certainly bred to go on progressing for a while yet as a half-sister to both Lundys Lane and Blue Monday.
The biggest threat could come from Bridgewater Boys, who has good form with Just Bond too but may need a shade further nowadays and recent course and distance winner Rebellious Spirit but it was a weak contest he won last time and I think he’ll need to do better again to defy a penalty.
