Thoughts on Lisa’s Legacy at LeicesterSeptember 2, 2013
Lisa’s Legacy runs in the 3.05 tomorrow at Leicester. Richard Kingscote takes the ride in the mile and half handicap. Lisa’s Legacy has been pretty consistent all season and after making a belated start to his campaign has proven to be really tough and taken his racing really well. His reward been four placing and one win from six starts and a rise in the weights. He seemed to find a bit extra for the step up to ten furlongs and both Paul Mulrennan and James Doyle felt there might be more to come upped another two furlongs. It will be interesting as it might give us a bit more flexibility on race tactics if he can stay the extra. The is a slight reservation on pedigree as Lisa’s Legacy’s sire Kyllachy would be best known for producing sprinters and although his dam ran well enough over twelve furlongs her optimum was ten furlongs.
Its hard to pick out one individual at first glance the race looks to revolve around the lightly raced three year olds in the field. Quest for More was disappointing last time but stepping up in trip by half a mile should bring about the improvement to get him back in the the thick of the action. Gamble is a well bred filly who wasn’t far away on her first attempt in handicap company and is open to improvement. Duke of Grazeon takes a step up in trip on his handicap debut, haven shown improvement to a degree in his races so far and given his breeding it would be no surprise to see him build on his efforts to date. It could be though that Royal Peculair who drops to his lowest level of racing ever might have something to offer in this company despite somewhat poor efforts of late.
