Thoughts on our two runners at Leicester tomorrow

May 26, 2013

We have two runners at Leicester tomorrow (Monday May 27th) and both appear to have good chances. Monopoli runs in the mile and a quarter seller at 3.00. Darren Egan takes the ride – taking a valuable three pounds off. The filly is in good form at home and came out of her most recent run really well. She was never going to win last time out, running into some well handicapped rivals in a competitive race, however in the context of tomorrow’s opposition it was a good effort. Monopoli’s sole win was over this course and distance. She’d prefer a bit more cut in the ground than is forecast so that is an area for concern.

It will be disappointing if Monopoli doesn’t go very close to winning this contest. Last time out winner Sutton Sid is probably one of the chief threats.

Disko is our second runner in the five furlong maiden at 4.40. Darren Egan is once again in the saddle. She showed lots of potential on her first start and will have learned plenty after meeting a troubled passage, in the end finding only a well regarded filly too good. She has done well since the race and seems to have taken it all in her stride.

Of those in the race who have already run Disko has shown the most potential thus far. The amin challenge seems likely to come from amongst the newcomers. Kaab looks bred to do the job and it is interesting that Paul Hanagan comes to Leicester to ride him. Hay Chewed is another bred to be a sharp two year old and represents a stable who good in this sphere. Andy Dandy and Coulsty are also likely candidates on paper.
