Thoughts on Zippy at Leicester today

October 26, 2015

Zippy makes her debut in the 3.30 at Leicester today (Monday, 26th October). Richard Kingscote rides the filly in the six furlong maiden. A filly who came in late to us she is not flashy but seems very tough and has made steady progression. A late foal she has the makings of a nice three year old. On breeding the soft ground shouldn’t trouble her. She will probably want further in time but this looked a nice opportunity to start her career on turf.

This doesn’t look the strongest maiden ever run and it would be no surprise to see a newcomer take the contest, Flying Clarets would be the most obvious amongst those that fall into the category. Of those with experience Shine Likeadiamond deserves to win a race and has been consistent for a while and has plenty of experience.
