Lady Bowthorpe Ready to Roll for William Jarvis (3rd August)

I will preview a few races soon but first I would like to thank Aaron and Sam for being part of the Saturday Trixie the past few months. We didn't quite hit the jackpot, but we had a few winners plus a few laughs along the way. To be honest, it takes a bit of time sorting out and I feel I haven't been concentrating on all of my trackers coming through plus watching the replays of the days racing. Anyway thanks again boys it's been a pleasure and good luck with your daily double.

Lady Bowthorpe for the William Jarvis yard. At first glance, her debut run last season looks a pretty professional run apart from being slowly away she soon caught up but then couldn't match the pace of the talented William Haggas runner Hidden Message. I guess if you don't look at Group Horse you wouldn't know that she was entered in the Group 2 Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket as a 2-year-old. A little more digging reveals in 2017 William Jarvis only had one horse entered in Group races and it was the 99 rated Mrs Gallagher who won a Listed race on her reappearance as a 3-year-old at Bath. It gets better, the owner of Mrs Gallagher is Ms E L Banks and you guessed it Ms E L Banks also owns Lady Bowthorpe. It will be interesting to see how she runs after over 300 days off the track. Lady Bowthorpe was well-supported at Yarmouth the other week but withdrawn for being unruly at the start. Hopefully, she will behave this time and it will be interesting to see if she still has the talents that William Jarvis thought she had as a 2-year-old. This looks a higher standard than the Yarmouth race with some potentially nice horses running. The betting guide will give some clues on how she will run on her reappearance, even if she runs terrible I will always enjoy trying to unearth a winner or two.

Passing Fashion for the Ralph Beckett yard. This Raven’s Pass gelding was bought by owner P D Savill for 38,000 gns in May. Made a pleasing debut at Chepstow despite being drawn low. Passing Fashion looked to know his job that day and despite being tapped for toe he stayed on strongly towards the finish and being by Raven’s Pass the step up in trip should suit. The first that day was Richard Hannon’s Malvern who is well-thought-of and had an entry for a Class 2 Conditions Stakes race on Sunday at Chester but doesn't run. The favourite Wren could be anything but with a penalty to overcome I am willing to take him on with Passing Fashion and hopefully I can get an each way price, could be wishful thinking that.

Angel Of Delight for the Hugo Palmer yard. 130,000 gns Dark Angel filly who made a pleasing debut at Lingfield in June. Awkwardly away and behind leaders until staying on steadily towards the finish. The extra furlong should suit and the fact she had an early entry for a Class 2 Maiden Stakes race at Goodwood on Thursday gives me the confidence of an improved performance today. Looks a tough race with some nice newcomers including another tracker of mine Festival Star who was also entered for the same Goodwood race on Thursday. A small each-way bet for me. Thanks for reading and good luck.
