Thoughts on today’s runners, Trimoulet, You’re My Cracker and Outrage.
A busy day for the team (Monday 10th of August) with Trimoulet kicking off the action in the 4.15 at Wolverhampton. Tom Queally rides the lightly raced six year old in the mile and a half handicap. Back from a break he has been going nicely in his homework and is probably better over a mile and half than ten furlongs. This represents a slight drop in grade since a solid third when last seen at Chelmsford.
The race is open looking and any number could play a part, Sweetheart Abbey drops in grade and is seen as a danger as is The Cornishcowboy who suddenly re-discovered his form when bolting up at Windsor in a weaker race yesterday.
You’re My Cracker is the next runner in the 4.45. Richard Kingscote rides the filly in the seven furlong handicap. She has been second on all three starts since joining the yard this year and was very unlucky the last twice. We’e stepped her up to seven furlongs as she has been doing all her best work late on. She needs to break better and we’ve done a bit of work on this at home. We’ve also left the blinkers off to see if that helps. She works well without them at home, which she wasn’t doing earlier in the season.
Handbell is the unknown quantity having been an easy winner of her second start in her maiden and poses the danger to You’re My Cracker.
Outrage is the final runner of the day at Windsor in the 6.50. Luke Morris takes the ride onthe colt in the five furlong maiden. A big stuffy horse he traveled well over six furlongs on debut at Salisbury before getting very tired late on. He has come on a good deal for the run and whilst there is improvement to come still he should be more competitive this evening. The drop back to five should do his chances no harm either.
My Major and Regal Miss both showed plenty of promise on debut and are the two to beat on their second starts.
