A 9/2 Winner !



A great start yesterday with Foolaad winning as I expected at the starting price of 9/2. Not sure if he will be able to follow up off his new rating but we will just have to see what the handicapper does.

Some people question speed against class in that class always prevails but it doesn't always work out that way as Foolaad proved. There was every chance that he could run another fast time particularly as he was carrying a stone less in actual weight carried and so it proved.

Today there is nothing to get excited about sprint wise as the most we can look forward to is a Class 7 handicap at 4.40 at Kempton. Form looks sparse but the 3 currently at the top of the market face each other again. Rapid Rise came out on top last time they met but its whether he can overcome a 3lb higher mark which he could well do as he was going away from the other two at the finish last time having made his run from further back - and he has a 7lb claimer on board this time. He's being backed in though as others cotton on.

However its not a race to get involved in and we look forward to a Class 3 tomorrow.

Good Luck!
