Thoughts on Harry’s Endeavour at ChepstowMay 10, 2016
Harry’s Endeavour runs in the 5.55 at Chepstow this evening (Tuesday 10th of May). Timmy Murphy maintains his partnership with the gelding in the mile and a half handicap following their recent victory at Bath. Harry enjoyed his turf debut when wearing cheek pieces for the first time when grinding out a narrow victory. The forecast softer going ought to help him find some of the necessary improvement to overcome a harsh looking 7lb rise in the weights.
This is a tougher contest and Regal Monarch sets a decent standard on his recent second in a better class of race. Tenzing Norgay looks the type to improve up another two furlongs in trip following a string of seconds last year. On pedigree he ought to improve with age too. Prospectus is another where there are several pointers to possible improvement at this increased distance on his handicap debut.
