Sioux Rising to continue Fahey's good run ?

I have often sided with Anne of Kiev during her improvement and although I'm not discounting her today I think Sioux Rising, if the first time blinkers take effect, will be bang there given her stables good form and 5/1 is a good price for her. She has worn cheekpieces in her last 3 races so you may think there must be a reason for all this but often first time headgear is the time to catch it. She obviously didnt like the slow surface at Southwell so we can easily discount that run and she is 8lb better off with Perfect Art for a nose beating here previously when she had an interupted run and she has had a break to freshen her up since. Also she has only had 14 starts to date so she could be open to some improvement today.
Anne of Kiev has a very good AW record 22129153425112 and she probably is going to be bang there again and it wouldnt be a total suprise if she won and Five Star Junior could make up the first 3.


  1. writing in orange type makes it almost impossible to read your posts

  2. Hope thats better, Sioux Rising has drifted a little bit with one or two firms to 11/2.

  3. Hope you don't think i was being smart about the orange type, just being helpful, I backed Sioux Rising (again) just failed.Anne of Kiev was a big price at 9/2!!

  4. Thanks for the suggestion re the type.

    At least I managed to get the race down to a shortlist of three and at at the line only 2 short heads separated all three of them.
    Anne of Kiev did well and looks as though her improvement continues and she was a big price considering she was 2-2 over the C and D.
    I thought it would be Sioux Risings day but maybe she will always be the bridesmaid.

    Although selecting the first three, albeit in the wrong order, there was very little bet on the trifecta and had anyone followed my advice the payout wouldnt have been much.
