Deverell Takes A Trip To The Golden Mile (Plus Previews)

14:40 Beverley 31 Aug 2019: 

FRATERNITY LOOKS TO GET BACK ON TRACK. 

Tracker: Phantom Bride

Eight runners go to post in the Irish EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes. It's always a worry that one could drop out and I will only get two places. I had a bet on Phantom Bride last timeout and thought the Karl Burke filly was nailed on for a place until weakening dramatically the final furlong. It wasn't a bad performance to be honest and could have each-way claims in what looks a difficult race to access. Fraternity caught my eye first time out at Haydock in July. The Richard Fahey Zoffany filly is owned and bred by Sir Robert Ogden. Fraternity was slowly way at Haydock but came to win the race a furlong out but couldn't quite match the winner West End Girls pace. Make no mistake the winner that day is very highly regarded and has since won the Group 3 Solera Stakes at Newmarket. I think Richard Fahey and the punters were expecting a win second start as she was sent off 3/1 favourite at Doncaster. It looked like a step backwards after a promising first run but I am willing to give this chestnut filly another chance against what look a few unexposed types. A market check is needed and hopefully, all eight run and I can get an each-way price.

DEVERELL TAKES A TRIP TO THE GOLDEN MILE. 

Tracker: Trumpet Man

A few potentially unexposed nice horses and a few potentially nice newcomers in the Betsi Golden Mile Novice Stakes. Nine go to post. I Am going to take on the Charlie Appleby runner Sun Cuisine after what was a disappointing debut at Yarmouth a few weeks back. The 30/100 favourite was expected to win in a canter but could never land a blow in the five runner race. Interesting to see if the Medaglia d'Oro colt just needed the run or is just disappointing. The market should prove the clues to his chances. One positive is Charlie Appleby has won the last two runnings of the race. In 2017 the brilliant Old Persian won and last year Court Poet won. Trumpet Man is entered to run in a Class 2 race at Goodwood on Tuesday but runs here instead. A nice Godolphin bred colt for Mark Johnston. Interesting to see what the market make of this Golden Horn colt on debut. I will be taking a bit of a gamble that Deverell doesn't have any problems after a 101 absence. The John Gosden Kingman colt made his debut at Yarmouth way back on 22nd May. Looking very professional that day and cruising along for most of the way until disappointingly fading inside the final furlong. That wasn't a bad race to start off his career and the winner Maxi Boy has run at a decent level without winning. Maybe Deverell had a problem or just needed strengthening up but this is a significant step up in distance and I will be looking for an each-way price if available unless a big drift in the market. 

16:55 Lingfield 31 Aug 2019: 

Tracker: Rachmaninov for Hugo Palmer. 

Had a Class 2 Convivial entry at York but didn't run. Market check needed on debut. 

Thanks for reading and good luck.
