Thoughts on tomorrow’s runners
3 runners on an exciting day for the team tomorrow (July 14th).
First up is Sognatore in the 1.00 at Lingfield, David Egan is in the saddle for the ten furlong handicap. He put up a decent performance last time out in similar conditions last time out. Sean Levey recommended removing the hood as he has become much more mature in his races and it was maybe taking a bit too much of the edge of him when challenged by other horses.
An open looking race and a few have a bit to prove. Bristol Missile seemed to show a bounce back to better form in a higher grade race last time out, but that was a slowly run affair so backing that up is not guaranteed. Doonbeg Farmer is slowly getting the hang of racing and is perhaps the most solid candidate in the field if continuing to build on his recent second at the track. My Lady Claire has been out of sorts of late but certainly has the ability to be a danger.
Sognatore runs for Capture the Moment and Crowd Racing. He will be led up by Epona Miller who cares for him at home.
Liberty Warrior heads to Yarmouth for the 5.00. He will be ridden by Adam Kirby in the 10 furlong maiden handicap. Liberty Warrior has shown promise on all three starts but probably found the drop back to a mile a bit sharp last time out but a repeat of his best run should see him go well here.
An intriguing contest featuring a group of lightly raced horses. Jebel Dhukan probably sets the standard and wears blinkers for the first time. As does Missile who would need to find a bit more to win this. The Thunderer is another with solid handicap form over this trip.
Liberty Warrior races for Capture the Moment. He will be led up by Michael Coles who looks after him at home and overseen by travelling manager Shaun Johnson.
Outgate runs in the 6.45 at Wolverhampton. The two year old colt makes his debut in this seven furlong maiden. By Outstrip out of the stakes placed mare Penny Drops he has been showing potential at home, he is sure to learn more from his first taste of the track tomorrow.
There isn’t much form to go on War Brave sets the standard on a good run at Chester on his second start but didn’t really match that next time out. Say Grace should improve for her first run and whilst White Cliff didn’t offer a huge amount on debut he started a very short price for debutant from a big yard which perhaps suggests more was expected.
Outgate is owned by Gary and Lesley Middlebrook who also bred the colt. He will be led up James Pulley and overseen by Yard Manager Lauren Webb.
