12.45 Musselburgh – Gemologist
(Blair Campbell/Lucinda Russell)
It was an encouraging performance by the daughter of Sir Percy on her latest run. The filly finished second behind a horse rated 120 who has previous good form. The pair were well clear of the rest of the field and Gemologist was staying on strongly in the closing stages. With the front running Wise Coco & Lady Samback likely to set the pace it could set up perfectly for the four-year-old who likes to be held up and delivered late. With Blair Campbell claiming 3lbs I think a mark of 105 should be in reach.
1.30 Plumpton – Shapiro
(Aidan Coleman/Anthony Honeyball)
It was a warm race this mare ran in at Ffos Las and the form was boosted by Champers On Ice winning at Newbury on Friday. A mark of 120 might have been a little stiff on handicap debut and I think now off 116 this is a weaker affair. Anthony Honeyball can do well with his mates with the likes of Ms Parfois & Midnight Tune. Also Honeyball has a great all time record at Plumpton being 23-88 (26%). I believe the six-year-old will come forward and should be involved at a fair price.
2.15 Musselburgh – Veiled Secret
(Brian Hughes/David Dennis)
Brian Hughes gave the five-year-old a positive ride at Huntingdon last time where he was just outbattled in the final strides. The winner then went on to run a solid race to finish 2nd at Wincanton. It’s interesting to see Brian Hughes booked again and I think this is an easier opportunity. Off a rating of 92 I believe he could be the one to beat.
5.15 Wolverhampton – Estrela Star
(Tom Marquand/Ali Stronge)
The step up in trip for Estrela Star could be the key for getting his head in front. He bumped into Foresee at Wolverhampton on his previous start and was getting closer to the winner with every stride. Despite this being a competitive affair it’s interesting to see Tom Marquand booked up who will be a jockey in demand on the All-Weather this winter. I think come post time he might be the favourite.
