Hughes to pounce on Barnet Fair !

Internationaldebut has a quick chance to follow up his win in the 4.10 at Doncaster on Thursday over 6f. He is on top weight of 9.9 with his 6lb penalty for his in form trainer Paul Midgley who won with his only runner Haajes on Wednesday, as picked by this blog, and this is his only runner today. His trainer had this to say after his win at York on Sunday “Internationaldebut works so well at home it´s unbelievable. It´s the first time he´s won for us, but he has earned plenty of place money. The faster they go the better, and he´ll run again at Doncaster on Thursday”. He looks set for another good run and 14/1 is worth having an ew saver on.
Richard Hughes is an interesting booking for Barnet Fair and we can expect to see him sitting quiet waiting to produce his mount at the right point and if he is not beset by his usual slow start I can see him going close too. Barnet Fair has run 3 good races at Newmarket and a similar performance could be good enough in this.
Dimension is related to Spacious and is lightly raced for Fanshawe, Fallon is booked to do the steering and they are 5-15 when thev’ye teamed up this year. Farlow too has little miles on the clock and this pair of 3yo’s will be there or thereabouts at the business end of the race. Farlow is out of Emly Express who is also the dam of another of todays rivals Damika who won the Great St Wilfrid in 2010 off a 4lb lower mark than he is on today and the cheek pieces are back on.
Its another big field sprint though and I may take a chance on Richard Hughes getting the best out of Barnet Fair and I wouldnt put anyone off putting a few of the above together in a perm tricast.
