Thoughts on MutineerDecember 14, 2016
Mutineer runs in the 4.40 at Kempton tomorrow (Wednesday 14th of December). Richard Kingscote will ride the two year old gelding in the seven furlong maiden. We do like some of the work that he has done at home and his ability has never really been a doubt in our minds. It is his mind however that has meant we have had to take a bit of time to get him to this point. Mentally he is still immature and quite a lively character so it was good to see him run a sensible race last time out and we’d hope he can build on that experience again tomorrow albeit he was wound up in the preliminaries. He looks to be the type that will mature with experience and racing. He has had a bruised foot since his last run and so missed a bit of training on account of that.
The race looks a pretty decent contest and Me Too Nagasaki looked useful on debut in a Newbury maiden when he finished with a rare rattle behind some smart rivals and if able to translate that turf form to the all weather will be the one to beat. Desert Grey stepped forward on his 3rd start- his first on the all weather and if showing that form again will be in contention if the favourite is unable to deliver. Al Sail looks the most interesting newcomer on paper.
