It’s a tough Monday today with not a lot jumping off the
page at me. It’s certainly a day of quantity over quality but hopefully I have
found a couple to give us a run our money.
First up is BOTTOM BAY who ran very well on season debut at Newcastle earlier
this month. Michael Bell was quite keen on him that day despite being a big
price and he ran full of promise until the lack of recent run perhaps told late
on. Bell has given him plenty of time to get over those exertions and the step
up in trip should suit. It’s an open race at Windsor today but the stable
remains in good form and I’d be hopeful of a good showing.
PROUD ARCHI is starting to look very well in and a recent run would
have blown away any cobwebs after 11 months off. He went close that day and
would have probably won had he had a stronger pace to run at. This race
represents a slight step down in grade and if able to back up his previous run
I think he should be going close here.
Windsor 4.50 – Bottom Bay – 0.5pts e/w
Thirsk 8.00 – Proud Archi – 1pt win
