Red-Hot Buick! His Three Rides On Wednesday Assessed

Jockey William Buick is in red-hot form of late, with NINE winners from his last fifteen rides, including an unbelievable eight winners over the weekend. After a well-deserved day off on Tuesday, he heads to Wolverhampton for a trio of rides on Wednesday.

We assess his chances on all three rides ↓


Appointed One (2.10 Wolverhampton)

After only finding one too good on debut, APPOINTED ONE will be hoping to go one better on Wednesday.

Having raced wide in the opening stages, he started to make headway in the final two furlongs, before hanging left and eventually got up for second. He was no match for the winner The Bullion Bomber that day, but he did have race experience already and clearly put that to good use. He holds an entry in a Class 2 race at Newmarket in October, so connections clearly think they’ve got a promising colt on their hands there.

Appointed One should come on for that debut run, and with Buick on board doing the steering this time, he should be difficult to beat and can get Buick on the board early doors on Wednesday!


Lufu (3.10 Wolverhampton)

Riding for the bang in-form Simon & Ed Crisford yard (39% strike-rate in the past two weeks), Buick looks to have another excellent chance of a winner with LUFU.

Having disappointed on debut, she left that run behind to put in a much better performance when finishing runner-up at Lingfield last week. The impressive Ellexis was comfortably clear of her and looks a promising sort, but Lufu finished clear of the remainder too and she’ll likely go off as favourite for this.

The booking of William Buick is a huge plus for her chances and although there are a couple in here who could improve for their recent runs (notably Kohana Breeze and Rosette), Lufu looks to be the one they all have to beat.


Phantasy Mac (3.40 Wolverhampton)

Arguably his best chance of the day, Buick will be relishing getting back on board PHANTASY MAC.

Having already won over C&D earlier in the year, she hardly put a foot wrong since and rattled in a hat-trick. She could only finish third on her most recent run, but that came just 11 days after her previous run and it may have just come too soon for her.

On the all-weather, her record over a mile or further reads 211, and she’ll relish coming back to tapeta. Providing trainer George Boughey has her fully fit after a 106 day break, she should really be winning a race of this nature.
