COUNTERPUNCH (Newmarket 4.55) is well clear on ratings but his odds reflect his chance. There will be better(and worse) 5/4 shots this season.
My main bet is SIERRA VISTA in the closing sprint handicap. When this mare hits form, as she did last time, she is very hard to peg back, even on this fairly stiff track. I hope John Egan takes the ride(he missed yesterday).
I think Anna Pavlova is overpriced in the 3.10 and I will be having a bet on PORTAL, for whom the ground is a question mark. MANGO MISCHIEF looks value in the same race.
The Nursery handicap(2.35) is wide open. Here are my ratings:
Ladies Best 106, Paceman 105, Opera Crown 105, Weld Il Balad 105, The Illies 103, Bucellati 103, Loch Tay 103, Brainy Benny 101, Emma’s Surprise 101.
I’m having a small interest in PACEMAN and OPERA CROWN.
