Things deservidly dropped right Misu Pete in the last race at Chelmsford yesterday evening; under a fine ride from SDS he found racing room at the right times and ran out a ready winner and you can see a video of his performance here . King’s Heart also ran decently and would probably have finished distinctly closer but for being squeezed over one out. Misu Pete, who should continue to be really competitive in similar aw handicaps, is owned by the Mark Usher Racing Club and you can become involved with him, Black Truffle, Born to Please and Bird for Life all for as little as £50 per month; details are here
Today we take All About the Pace to Lingfield for the first time in their twelve furlong Fillies Handicap; today’s iteration is a competitive race for the grade with several people likely to be capable of better than they have shown so far; ideally we would be looking to run our filly on easy ground turf but there has been so little rain around that a race restricted to the distaff on the polytrack fits the bill. This will be the second time the filly has run over twelve, a trip that has always promised to suit and to bring improvement, and we are looking to her to build on what she achieved at Wolverhampton at the beginning of the month when finishing a quite close up fourth.
If you would be interested in going summer jumping there is one share available in our eight year Old Vic gelding, Bay Fortuna; after a long spell away from the track he returned to win a two and a half mile Handicap Hurdle at Uttoxeter last week by eight lengths in the words of the Racing Post ‘in commanding fashion’. We are looking to exploit a continuing favourable handicap mark at either Stratford or Worcester the week after next; he jumps naturally and well and the plan is go Novice Chasing with him later in the Summer; you can see his details here ; and the video of him powering clear at Uttoxeter last week is here
