Day 11 of The 30 Day Challenge. Been a while since our last update but few chances of late.
An EBF Maiden Fillies' Stakes over 6f on Standard going. Nine two-year-olds take part: all raced by one debutante. Jeremy Noseda is a class trainer. Rouge Noir was fancied to go well first start but disappointed somewhat, a few lengths away in fourth. This daughter of Showcasing cost 68,000gns at the yearling sales. The betting is important and if priced 13/2 & less has sound each-way claims. Better will be needed today and there's hope this drop in distance and a couple of weeks on the sidelines will find improvement. If particularly weak in the betting, I'd take a watching brief.
5:40 Kempton - Division II. Quite interested in Henry Candy's Artist's Model. This daughter of Dutch Art defied her odds when a gallant third at 16/1. This breeze-up purchase cost £38,000 by the trainer in the ownership of Girsonfield Ltd. The betting suggests this is very much a three-horse race and if this April foal is an each-way price has sound claims.
Rouge Noir (each-way bet if priced 13/2 & less) 4/1 8th (ran too bad to be true)
Artist's Model (each way bet if prices allow) 7/2 3rd
