Wednesday's Racing Insight (27th January)


Just a quick look.

4:05 Lingfield - 

Supporters of Tributo will be hoping to get a run for their money this time after he reared  when leaving the stalls and unseating his rider 19-days ago. 

A disaster for punters. 

This of Dragon Pulse was heavily backed to start fractional odds on. 

Clearly, something was expected. 

This looks a decent chance to make amends although I wouldn't be betting at short odds.

Mick Channon's Mahale doesn't have the best of draws and makes his return after being highly tried at two. It wouldn't be the biggest surprise to see he is a better three year old. 

Bookmakers don't look like they are giving much away in this race. 

4:10 Kempton - 

Roger Varian usually has his horses primed to go well on their second start, although a few of late haven't set the world alight. 

Cheeky Az is a homebred who has been through the sales ring three times and as yet unsold.This son of Teofilo looked very inexperienced on debut over 7f at Newcastle. In fact, for most of the race he was struggling to make an impact, then, finally, got motoring in the closing stages to be detailed as an ''eyecatcher'' by the Racing Post race reader. 

It will be interesting to see if this colt can hold his position on this turning course. He may well be a different proposition today although I would be slightly concerned he may struggle for pace. It is often a strength to finish a race, and punters may be hoping this is the case if he's shuffling his hooves early doors. 

I would much rather see this February foal racing over one mile. 

Time will tell. 

The stats detail a very good run but I would rather bet on this horse in running if struggling for pace early doors as much bigger odds will be available.

I can't help thinking he will be outpaced and playing catch-up. 

4:45 Kempton - 

I'm interested to see how James Tate's Join Forces goes on his second start, stepping up a furlong after failing to shine on debut when second favourite (13/8). 

This son of Lethal Force, in the familiar silks of Saeed Manana, bumped into a decent type when taking on Hidden Breeze, who was a much better horse for the addition of the blinkers and dropping in distance. I can see Gosden's filly winning a few races and Join Forces had a very stiff task trying to beat her on debut and paid the price for trying to do just that when tiring in the closing stages. Out of a three-time winning mare, who was Listed placed, she should go well for Tate and holds respected each-way claims if priced 13/2 and less sp. 

It would be a negative if very weak in the betting.
