Three of our four people ran well yesterday, Bullseye Bullet showing perhaps for the first time on the racecourse what he has always showed at home, to be third, travelling well into the race before probably finding the trip short, and the ground soft, enough; we will look to him to be competitive in Nurseries over the Autumn. Misu Pete was only beaten just over three lengths in a competitive enough handicap and Born to Please led over a furlong out under the far rail just finding a finisher down the middle of the track too strong. She was well ridden by Nicola Currie and the pair could well have a productive Autumn in similar races on easy ground.
The one horse who didn’t handle the easy ground was Dreamboat Annie running closer to home at Bath; the RPR boys seem to think that she wants to go further but the collective Rowdown view is that the real issue compared to her excellent Sandown performance lay underfoot.
This afternoon we take Bayston Hill back to Brighton, where he won over seven furlongs at the corresponding meeting last Season, for their Mile Handicap. The Handicapper has relented following him winning at Bath in May and he is now back to a similar mark; since winning at Bath he has run pretty consistently over ten furlongs just being a pound or two too high in the Handicap and we are now able to run him in Class Six races for the first time since the Spring; he should run decently this pm the one constraint that the nearer Brighton’s ground is to Good than to Soft the better.
