Best Bet: WHAT A PRINCE (Race 5)


Race 5

WHAT A PRINCE showed the expected improvement to be beaten just a head second time out over this c&d. He hit the front at the 150M mark that day and was only run out of it very late. He will almost certainly have improved further after that run under his belt and despite having a wideish draw nine, he is taken to be the best bet on the day’s card.

OLYMPIC TIME showed marked improvement to finish fifth last time out over 1300M, two and a half lengths behind the winner when returning from a 22-week break. He tried to go from jump to wire that day and from his handy gate four, he is likely to adopt similar tactics here. He looks the immediate danger to the top choice as he could prove difficult to reel in over the closing stages.

OH GOLLY GOSH is a 4yr old filly taking on the boys, but she was slow away before making good late progress to end up in seventh place last time out over 1300M, just over four lengths back from the victor. She faces a wide draw ten, but she should be doing her best work late.

Race 6

There are six unraced runners in the field, so as is always the case in these types of races, a keen eye should be kept on the betting markets to get some indication as to whether the connection believe that they can win first time out. Any betting support for a runner or runners should be respected. Of the raced runners, CALIFORNIASILENCER may prove to be the best. She is a 3yr old filly taking on males, but she did finish second when making her debut over five furlongs, 3.3L off the winner. She was slow away and then bumped shortly after the start that day, so that effort was commendable. She gets gate seven, but with the natural improvement that can be expected, she is made the value bet on the day’s program.

LAMBDOMA ENERGY finished fourth first time out over 1100M and was then collared in the shadow of the post to be beaten just a short-head next time out over five furlongs. He attracted plenty of betting support that day and although having to overcome the widest draw of them in gate fourteen, he should use his early gate speed to move across without expending too much energy.

TILLOTSON is another 3yr old filly in the race. She finished fifth on debut over five furlongs, two and a half lengths back from the winner and was immediately rested for 22 weeks. She returns here after winning her only barrier trial and whilst having a wide gate ten, she should be right up there in the mix.

Race 7

This looks to be a tricky F&M Handicap with plenty of runners in with a realistic chance of finding the winner’s box, so some caution is suggested. PANDORA BLUE has only had the three runs to date, but goes for her hat-trick after two wins over five furlongs, both by two lengths. She finished well to win that last start, suggesting that the extra ground on offer today will be to her liking and the form of that race has also been franked. She has her first run since a 30-week absence, but she did finish second in her only barrier trial to showcase her well-being. She will have to overcome the widest draw thirteen but nevertheless looks to be the one to side with here.

SHOTGUN ALLI is seldom far off the action and finished third last time out over six furlongs, 2.2L back from the winner. She battled all the way down to the wire in that day and the form of that race has stood up well with two runners out of that contest subsequently winning. She jumps from a kinder draw seven and should be right up there when they hit the line.

is drawn one outside the latter and chased hard over the closing stages to end up in second spot last time out over this c&d, just a head behind the winner. On that effort, she should be included in all bets.

Race 8

DIAMOND HANDS has had just the two outings to date, winning both of them, the first over 1100M and the latest over five furlongs by 2.3L when returning from a 19-week absence. He struck the front at the 100M mark that day and the race was over as a contest from that point The form of that race has been franked to boost his claim for top spot. He has a wideish draw nine, but the trio of victories looks very much on the cards.

MORALIST has consistent formlines to his name, having finished second in his last two runs, the latest when trying to go from gun to tape before posting a half-length loss over this c&d. He will have to deal with a wideish gate nine but seems likely to turn in another honest performance today.

BULLET RIDER on the other hand has cracked pole position and has his hat-trick run after victories over six furlongs and the latest, a head win over the c&d. He jumped awkwardly that day but recovered well to wear down the frontrunners over the latter stages of the race.
