Thoughts on Silhouette at WolverhamptonJuly 27, 2015
Silhouette heads to Wolverhampton for the 1.50 tomorrow (Tuesday, July 28th). Steve Drowne maintains his partnership with the colt in the seven furlong maiden. Silhouette was very green on his first day at the races and got bumped just as the race was developing and ended up detached over an inadequate trip and wasn’t therefore able to get very involved. He probably didn’t therefore learn as much as one would like that day. He isn’t the fastest learner at the best of times. He is quite a stuff colt who puts on weight easily so there is also room for improvement on the fitness front. Tomorrow is very much another step in his education and hopefully he will get more involved.
Silhouette faces some experienced rivals for a maiden who know their job at this stage and set a reasonable if not insurmountable standard. There is little to pick between Livella Fella and Invigorate in terms of form, but it is perhaps Breslin that will overtake them both after a reasonable showing at Ascot first time out.
