Andy Holding’s Wednesday Racing Tips
THE WIRE FLYER (best cost 17-2) improved dramatically when falling soft ground for the very first time in Ffos Las on his latest outing and a repeat of someplace near that level of form ought to be great enough for him to be a contender in this heat this day.
100-1 and just revealing a modicum of talent on rapid ground first time over hurdles at Exeter per month ago, John Flint’s gelding increased his game to a completely new level in the Welsh track a month after and with the time figure of this race stating that the performance in no way should be regarded as a fluke, then there is every chance he’ll go nicely again in case the numbers do not lie. The only fact that hot favourite, Prudhomme (delivered off 2-7) could not go the speed in the closing phases is testimony to the pace in the last half a mile and eliminate hot favorite Olly The Brave, now’s competition appears for grabs.
JUAN LES PINS (best cost 17-2) shaped with plenty of reinforcement on all-weather introduction over tonight’s route last time out and he makes a lot of charm as the strong each-way alternate to the favorite.
Too justice on introduction, Ed Walker’s colt clearly learnt lots from that original outing based on his performance at the Surrey venue. Although unable to choose the front two in the closing phases 48 days ago, he still clocked an impressive last three-furlong sectional in his own right and ability to quicken pace should prove to be a useful weapon against those that have not even set foot on a track this day.
Sarim ran out a decent winner on tonight’s course last time out, however, the time figure wasn’t something special and he has passed over in favour of TOROCHICA (best cost 7-2) and EXCEEDING POWER (best price 10-1).
Last week the former had to be discounted as a unlucky loser at Chelmsford and this filly will have high rank on the display’s evidence. Held up well off the speed turning to home, the girl of Toronado did not get going till it was too late due to being tight for space at a crucial stage, but the way she finished her off race very much indicated she is one to follow along. Space to suits likely and tonight straight, John Greatest’s filly can begin making up for lost time.
The kind of this London Middle Distance Series qualifier here on October 31 was well and truly advertised in the closing by Great Tidings and Creationist a week and using run so well to complete a creditable seventh, the latter leaves a lot of charm in this marginally weaker event.
Handy from the start in what turned out to be an extremely strongly run competition, Martin Bosley’s inmate found himself short of room at a critical point down the right and even though he didn’t have the tactical speed to hold his place , he kept on well to finish the coat tails of the primary players after back outside in the clear. A winner off similar marks the son of Excel And Exceed, before seems overpriced depending on the time figure he pumped out here 27 days past.
