As to being a sorry bunch yesterday – well they all gave their running bar Eton Fables
Eton Fable who almost made all at Chester four days earlier, was denied the lead this time and endured a far from clear run. Trapped on the rail from half a mile out, he stayed on well once eventually switched into the clear, but it was all too late. He ran better than his finishing position suggests.
400 GREAT LEIGHS
BETTING FORECAST: 6/4 Hilbre Court, 7/2 Rankayo Hitam, 6/1 Sistos Fascination, 13/2 Hasty Lady, 9/1 The Hoofer, 12/1 Micheals Boy, 16/1 Diktat Tempo, 25/1 Royal Tartan, 33/1 Alabjar, 40/1 Harlequinn Danseur
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: HILBRE COURT (nap) comes out with the best chance on adjusted BHA ratings despite conceding weight all round and he can confirm earlier Lingfield form with Rankayo Hitam
A claimer here not the ideal race type – Fav is 4/5 at present which augurs well
BETTING FORECAST: 15/8 Rose Street, 13/2 Suits Me, 7/1 Granston, Kingsdale Orion, 10/1 Eglevski, 12/1 Magic Echo, Motafarred, 14/1 Veiled Applause, 16/1 Harvest Warrior, 20/1 Charlie Tokyo, Intersky Charm, 33/1 Turfshuffle
SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: ROSE STREET went into many notebooks on her reappearance and back on turf and up in trip, she can take care of a competitive if largely exposed field. Suits Me might be the one to chase her home
Progressive form and a noticeable price gap – negatives – 3 year old handicap
Softer ground today is a negative
Probably just Rose street for me today – confirmation via the live market incase there is a drift, as was the case with Eton Fables in the place market.
