Warm up to Epsom Dash
Fathom Five opened his account for the season by picking up another win at Epsom over the fast 5f. His performance wasnt anything special although the time was below statndard and it was some of the performances behind that could have you thinking. Fol Hollow ran better this time and we should keep him onside as he got bumped leaving the stalls, Indian Trail never got any sort of run and you got the feeling that had he done so he would have won easily. Out the back was Holbeck Ghyll who hasnt had much racing lately and he was given a particularly sympathetic ride and had he been up with the pace he too must surely have been placed, so it was a good run from him as the Dash is his main target and it will be interesting to see if he is dropped in the handicap as a result.
