Thoughts on Shamiana tomorrow at WolverhamptonNovember 13, 2014
Shamiana runs in the 7.30 at Wolverhampton. Steve Drowne is in the saddle for the nine and half furlong classified stakes. Shamiana made a satisfactory return to action after a break last time out over an inadequate seven furlongs, after missing the break she finished well without ever threatening the leaders. She needed that run and should improve for it. She had some of the best runs of her career over this course and distance last winter, the new Tapeta surface at Wolverhampton is an unknown but ought not to inconvenience her. We’ve done some stalls work with her since to ensure she breaks well and won’t be using the hood as we have done on her recent starts.
The two last time out winners in the field look to be the main contenders in the field, although Gracefilly steps up in trip and Vaguely Spanish has a slight question to answer regarding the surface as his best runs have been on soft turf. Hidden Asset is another to bear in mind with a recent course in distance win to his name.
