Wednesday 6.30pm Not exactly a blockbusting return for the Lucky 15, horrid would be closer to the mark! Are we going to give up? Absolutely not, must try harder. Mind you the cards for Thursday aren’t the most inspiring! Plenty to look forward to at the weekend and the final decs are out at midday tomorrow!
Thursdays Lucky 15
Lingfield 2.10 MUKALEL 2/1 general
Redcar 4.00 TEODORO 6/1 PP
Lingfield 4.10 BATTERED 7/1 Coral 6/1 general
Redcar 4.30 GILGAMESH 2/1 general
and here’s why
Lingfield 2.10 MUKALEL A Hamdan Al Maktoum 3yo already gelded? Ran well on debut behind Middle Kingdom and then fith to Jewel House at the Craven meeting. Well drawn in stall 3 and I expect lucky Jim Crowley will try to make every yard!
Redcar 4.00 TEODORO Classic preparation for a 3yo handicapper, three midfield runs in maidens, gelded, steps up in trip. Not too far behind the likes of Atty Persse and Stradivarius and surely this Teofilo gelding will enjoy the step up to 9F, well drawn in stall 2 for a red red hot Dascombe/Kingscote combo/ Lot to like if they are having a go!
Lingfield 4.10 BATTERED Steps up from 6 to 7F and debuts on the AW but was OK behind Brian the Snail on seasonal debut and could just be better than C4. Just a hunch but may be trying to win this to get a penalty to get in the valuable 3yo Charity Sprint at York? He’ll need to race prominently here.
Redcar 4.30 GILGAMESH A progressive 3yo for George Scott who gets on well with Jamie Spencer. He’s up 4lbs, transfers to turf and takes on his elders this time. At C4 level off OR87 I don’t think any of that will stop him.
Wednesdays Lucky 15
Ascot 2.35 ICESPIRE 2nd Evs F
Held up, got caught in a pocket, denied a clear run, when got out lengthened, failed by a short head and one stride to get up.
Ascot 3.10 HARBOUR LAW 7th 11/2
Never competitive, weakened from two out.
Ascot 3.45 SEVEN HEAVENS 7th 7/1
Led early, headed two out, nothing. Trained on?
Ascot 4.55 OASIS SPEAR 8th 16/1
RP says “Took keen hold, well in touch until weakened over 2f out” and who am I to argue?
#FantasticMrFahey update Thursday at 11am.
