Thoughts on today’s runners – Thursday
A busy couple of days ahead for the team starting with four runners today across three tracks. At Wolverhampton Fiscal Policy runs in the 2.50pm under Apprentice Kaiya Fraser, followed by Don’t Tell Claire in the 4.52pm under Hector Crouch. Solar Portrait makes his racecourse debut at Salisbury with David Egan taking the ride in the 3.10pm race. Lil Guff lines up at Windsor at 6pm, Kieran Shoemark takes the ride.
Fiscal Policy was unlucky the way the race panned out last time getting a bump at a critical time, but in truth probably wasn’t enjoying the going in any case. Before that he had run well all season. This small field should suit and Kaiya is the most experienced rider in the field.
Dandys Derriere looks the biggest danger having won last time out in a slightly lower grade. Fast Company is consistent but needs to find a bit more.
Fiscal Policy runs in the colours of owner breederd Gary and Lesley Middlebrook and will be led up by Shannon Pasotti.
Still a raw horse, Solar Portrait will learn plenty for his trip to the races. Its a small field with some decent sorts so its likely to be tough for him today.
Welleef looked a good sort on debut and beat Crown Dreams who already had the benefit of experience.
Solar Portait runs for syndicate owners Innovate Racing and will be led up by Sammy Barnett who rides him daily at home.
Don’t Tell Claire
Don’t Tell Claire has been a star for the yard but really needs fastish ground to be seen at her best. We have opted for this race at Wolverhampton to try and get a win on the board for the season. She’s won a lot of prize money with placed efforts at Royal Ascot, Ascot and Newbury this season. She deserves a sixth win to her name.
Don’t Tell Claire
Don’t Tell Claire has to concede weight to some lightly raced three year olds, Veil of Shadows is very unexposed still. Eximinous was probably on the wrong side last time at Royal Ascot, whilst Bernardine has been improving all season and there’s no reason to think there would not be more to come.
Don’t Tell Claire runs for owner Andrew Stonehill and will be led up by Shannon Pasotti.
Lil Guff heads to the Racing League in search of good prize money having already won twice this season. She should be suited by the fast ground (provided they have not over watered).
A very competitive heat, with plenty of in form sprinters taking in each other on. The race that looks likely to be run at a furious pace. The unexposed Crimson Angel is interesting against the likes of Looking for Lynda, Another Baar (who should see the trip out well) and veteran Copper Knight.
Lil Guff runs for owner Wayne Clifford, she wasa bred by Sarah Clifford. The filly will be led up by Epona Miller who rides and cares for her daily at home.
