Cue To Cue Will Snooker His Rivals At Musselburgh
A mix of racing on Wednesday, with jump racing at Hereford and Musselburgh and, whilst there may be no Cheltenham hopefuls on display, there are still some competitive affairs. The same can be said about Lingfield and Kempton on the all weather.
Musselburgh looks to offer the best chances of profit, with the in form team of Keith and James Reveley providing CUE TO CUE in the 1.40, a mares novices hurdle race. The well bred daughter of King’s Theatre looked to have a bright future when winning a novices hurdle at the first time of asking, winning by 4 lengths. She then turned up in a Class 2 novices hurdle at Newcastle, finishing a respectable third in a competitive field. The form has been franked by South Leinster and Kings Canyon who have won since.
TEARS FROM HEAVEN looks an interesting sort, getting in at the bottom of the weights in the 2.10, a conditional jockeys handicap chase. Henry Brooke, who won this race last year on Aghill, takes the ride. The gelding has improved with each run this season, capitalising on being dropped 8lb by the handicapper, and finished a good second last time out. Although still a maiden, he looks to be lightly treated and could have a good each way chance.
The Henrietta Knight yard have been in better form recently with big race winners Calgary Bay and Somersby and they could have another winner on Wednesday with SILVER ROQUE. Stable jockey Dominic Elsworth is on board the gelding, who has yet to finish outside the first three this season. Dropping back to two miles last time out at Folkestone seemed to be the trick with the gelding as he comfortably beat an odds-on Phillip Hobbs hotpot. He looks to be well treated back in handicaps, and should go close.
Moving across onto the polytack at Lingfield Park, NORTHERN SPY looks to be a very well treated horse in the 2.50. Still a maiden on the all weather, the gelding owned and trained by Simon Dow looks to be an unexposed sort in a race with much tried veterans. With only two runs since returning from a 180 day absence last month, Northern Spy has shown quite a bit of promise. His second to Archie Rice at Wolverhampton looks to be a decent piece of form with Aviso and Archie Rice both winning from that race and the third, fourth and fifth placing in their next start also. He’ll benefit from the not inconsiderable assistance of Hayley Turner.
RAGDA looks like a horse with masses of potential for the shrewd Marco Botti yard, a stable synonymous with horses springing into handicaps with poor maiden form and can repeat that pattern again here. The well bred Invincible Spirit filly looks to have a very fair mark of 52. The race itself looks weak, with the only form horse being recent winner Daniel Thomas who will more than likely give another good account of himself at a short price.
