|ON THE GALLOPS|
Intimidate has been knocking on the door. Noseda has a fine record at this course with his juveniles and it will take a decent horse to beat this son of Royal Applause. There doesn't look much meat on the bone at less than 6/4. Probably a watching brief unless drifts in the betting.
A crazy-looking handicap. My brother has taken a speculative punt on Oh Boy Oh Boy (monster odds). Difficult one to assess to be fair but Moffatt's horse is quite a good-looking juvenile and this step up to 7f will be a positive. At this weight, with an apprentice on his back, this gelding could show ability today. Personally, I have a feeling Annie Gogh could finally hit the mark. She showed good pace when running over 7f for the first time at Thirsk and was pretty keen which made that a fair effort. If settling a little better she may just lead these a merry dance. I'm pretty sure Fentimen will hit the front so most likely a back to lay.
Can't say I'm a big fan of Selling races but Sojoum has gone close in a few races and Channon does well at this grade. One of these days she will get her head in front. A fighting chance.
A restricted auction race. Millie N Aire seemed all speed a few runs back but on a couple of later efforts looks to have been struggling to go the pace. Not sure what's going on with that one but if returning to her speedy self has a chance. Why So Fast hasn't had an ounce of luck in her races but she is a good-looking filly. David O'Meara takes over from Stuart William's and I would imagine a bold show will be on the cards. If substantially backed it would be a confident sign. We haven't seen the best of this daughter of Kodiac.
Another trainer who fires them up at this course is Sir Michael Stoute. Centred ran well on debut and this step up in distance will suit. A big run is expected in what could be a good day for Buik.
