Brief Thoughts on today’s runners

August 29, 2017

Permanent 2.50 Ripon, George Downing

Permanent drops into selling company today, the small field should suit him and if running his best race he has a good chance but his performances are inconsistent.

Av A Word 4.50, Silvestre de Sousa

Has won three races this summer over ten furlongs at Brighton one under Silvestre. Epsom poses a horse a similar challenge which gives confidence and he is a horse that keeps improving at home as well as on the course. It’s the best race he’s contested yet and although It’s a Sauce Pot is an in form rival he should be competitive once again.
