Perthshire ran OK, not beaten far, just
over four lengths, not helped by being slightly impeded as he tried to
close just after the turn in; he gave the visual impression of not
quite getting home over sixteen furlongs and one view of last night's
performance is that fourteen furlongs, or slightly shorter, might be his
ideal trip; and Chelmsford at this sort of trip might suit; at least
the OH should give him back some more of those four pounds.
Liberty Bay and Willingly both run in Yarmouth's six furlong Handicap this afternoon, the first race on their card; Willingly steps up into a better class handicap since his very early days handicapping and she probably has a slightly less favourable chance at the weights than Liberty Bay; the three at the top of the handicap, Fauvette, our filly and Camachess have the best form chances but with Liberty Bay having to give Willingly 22lbs in the saddle with Owen Lewis' claim there might not be much between them and both should run decently and competitively; there would be worse ew singles and a rfc.
Our recent arrival from Heath House, Meisterzinger, runs at Chelmsford tomorrow evening.
