1:30 First Race
Bet365, best odds): Sharp Dresser can land an inauspicious
contest, while How's Business and Reflective Glory should also be capable of
making a good impression at this level. Reflective Glory was beaten out of sight
in each of her previous starts over hurdles but can at least draw from previous
experience of racing at this track. This is a much weaker race than the last
time she came to Wetherby and has little to find to at least make the frame.
How's Business made steady progress on the Flat but failed to really set the
world alight during her time with Charles Cyzer. Still, she stays well and looks
best of the modest bunch drawn together to form the opposition to the selection.
Even so, Sharp Dresser, who is out of a half-sister to Oaks winner Reams Of
Verse, stands out on the evidence available. The Diesis filly caught the eye in
each of her three starts for Amanda Perrett and, assuming Venetia Williams has
carried out her customary schooling programme with the filly, this appears to be
a straightforward task if Sharp Dresser takes to the winter game.
4:45 Last Race
Bet365, best odds): A wide open bumper
rounds off the card and as usual in these events the market will be very
informative but the principals look to be All Out For Seven, Murphys Beau and
Glengap and the narrow vote is given to Glengap. The selection has won a point
in his native Ireland looks sure to know his job and under conditions that suit
he could be a value bet. Muyrphys Beau rates the main danger on his latest
second behind Evelith Regent he looks sure to improve again and will not be far
away. All Out For Seven hails from a yard that has a fair record in these events
and this Gelding by Simply Great should be watched in the market. Of the others
Calm Seas shaped with promise on his debut and is another that is sure to
improve while Walamo is another that catches the eye on breeding and could go
well at a price but in a race that throws up more questions than answers Glengap
gets our vote.
