Sirenuse can go well for Smart

Sirenuse is a real speedball and should go well at Ayr tomorrow, she won well at Thirsk last time in a good time, in fact it was faster than the Class 2 Handicap won by Fol Hollow on the same card. As a result she was put up 4lb but arguably she should have been put up by more. She was mentioned by her trainer as a horse to follow at the begining of the season and if she wins this she will have a chance of getting in the Dash at Epsom on Derby Day as her revised rating would help her cause. She has come out of the Thirsk race very well and she has the rail here to fall back on and she could have enough in her to dominate all the way to the line. City Dancer could be the one to give her the most problems as she has been dropped a bit in the ratings since last season and now with Dandy Nicholls she could find any amount of improvement and an apprentice takes off a further 3lb.


  1. Quite what Tom Eaves was intending doing when he went off like a rocket on Sirenuse we'll never know, but he ran her into the ground and never really gave her a chance. He had a good draw and bagged the rail and he should have just kept the lead, instead he had a race with himself. She is obviously better than this given a better ride.

  2. Agree - still she's been dropped a 1lb to OR82 and goes for a 5f race at Redcar on Tuesday 1st June and could recoup then.
