Thoughts on Whitechapel, Red Yarn makes an encouraging debut.August 19, 2012
Whitechapel runs in the 4.2o at Wolverhampton tomorrow (20th August 2012). Martin Dwyer takes the ride in the seven furlong handicap. Whitechapel ran well for a long way but didn’t finish as strongly as he suggested he might when running over the same course and distance last week. We have fitted a set of visors to focus him better tomorrow, Martin suggested some sort of headgear might help him when he rode him last week. He hasn’t done any fast work in them but they certainly seemed to pep him up when he wore them in a routine canter. The race does not look any where near as difficult as last week. The obvious danger appears to be Circuitous who has won two of his last three starts with a visor, both on the turf. His handicap mark is lower on the all weather so if he can match his turf performances he will be tough to beat, his main weakness may be that he has done his winning over a furlong less. Foot Tapper could be in the mix if a poor run last time can be out down to a return after a break and the slow surface at Kempton as he hasn’t run many times and is capable of improving. Abhaath is another three year old capable of improving making a second start for new connections and ran well in his start for them.
Red Yarn demonstrated she is capable of winning a race after making a promising start to her career with us last night at Lingfield. Eddie Ahern gave her a strong ride and said she kept going forward for him which is encouraging. She just looked a little out paced early on and was staying on well at the end to finish fifth of twelve beaten just over four lengths. We will look to step her up in trip on her next start.
Shares are still available in this partnership, Red Yarn will run up until the December sales at which point the partnership will be dissolved. Click here for further details of how to get involved.
