    Fleeting Spirit just about for me in the Lowther. Molecomb form is looking strong now and from teh way last run panned out im not worried about the extra furlong. Visit has to be feared but is short enough

    Cant see past Racer Forever in the 3.50.

    Dark Angel, Dandy Man, Visit (but the speed ratings worry me with this one). Sierra Vista is a nice e/w at 25s.

    I think a Visit to the bookmakers is in order. :)

    Visit looks as if she got tapped for speed and didn’t appreciate the quicker ground conditions. That’s my excuse anyway. :lol:

    Could be argued that the winner was on slighter better ground also racing wider than the others. All 4 TV winners raced down the centre of the track, with horses like Fremen, Dandy Man, Visit making their efforts closer to the rail and not quite getting there.

    Of course, the winners could easily have just been that little bit better, but I just wonder if it is coincidence that the winners hae came down the centre.

    You make a very good and valid point.
    I think, if I may, use that as the third and most valid excuse for Visit’s demise on the day. :wink:

    :wink: You may indeed that as an excuse lol.

    I certainly wouldn’t give up on Visit, she beat the others fair and square and like you say she definitely got tapped for toe. She could well be a live Gunieas contender, especially as Stoute seems to be campaigning her exactly the same as his previous top notch Mile fillies – who’s names elude me at the moment :lol:
