Andy Holding’s Wednesday Racing Tips


IMPRESSOR (NAP) (best cost 11-4) created a favourable impression on his debut at a useful maiden at Goodwood and supplying he reveals the anticipated improvement next time round, he looks reserved to shoot high rank hailing in a lawn in good nick at present.
Not overly fancied in the Sussex place, therefore his 20-1 starting cost, the child of Footstepsinthesand broke than anticipated to race only about the heels of the leaders after a few furlongs. Still going well enough running down to the business end of the contest, Marcus Tregoning’s colt subsequently became the meat in the sandwich as general bunching in supporting the leaders happened and although he managed to free himself from the scrimmaging inside the last furlong, a remaining fourth was the best he could achieve. Certainly not knocked around whatsoever late on, Impressor will have observed lots of invaluable lessons that day, none more so than just how to look after himself in a battle, and those in and about him that day came with large reputations, he must have no trouble holding his own against similar opposition this afternoon.
It is a bit of gamble stepping CARDY (best cost 7-2) up nearly a full mile since winning over today’s course last time out but it has to be viewed as a considered one given how powerful he was at the latter portion of the race 15 days ago and his background.
Outpaced in series of novice events within the very long trip, Harry Whittingham’s gelding appeared to be following a similar route here two weeks ago until he unexpectedly picked up the bridle and flew home to dent going away. Depending on the overall speed figure he posted along with his backend splits, he clearly requires a test of endurance to see him to complete effect and having run nicely in a three-mile point-to-point on tender earth, you would envision today’s examination under ever-worsening conditions are right up his street.
The maiden acquired by Lancaster Bomber on the penultimate evening of the Galway Festival was noted for its powerful pace that led in a extremely fast speed figure and with both caught the eye together using the way that they finished off their races at sixth and second respectively, DARKENED (best cost 3-1) and CANNING (best price 11-1) are expected to play roles in this arguably slightly weaker-looking occasion .
The former had shaped with promise on his opening gambit in Limerick back in June and has been well-fancied to hold his own second time up in Ballybrit, so it proved. Remaining on closely after becoming outpaced coming down the aspect of this program, John Oxx’s gelding came home having a great amount of purpose once meeting the rising ground as well as though he did not have the necessary speed to make any serious inroads to the winner, it still wasn’t a poor attempt up against a horse that seemed after all the world like a Group celebrity at the making.
Trainer Luke Comer would not necessarily be connected with maiden winners in the major festival, so it was no real surprise to see his bill sent off a 50-1 poke 11 weeks back. But, his promising three-year-old colt cover himself with glory with a great effort on just his second career start and he looks the type who will continue to improve — notably over further. How he came home after becoming a fair way behind halfway definitely lends itself to this notion and it would appear as no surprise when he was good enough to create the framework at least.
MOUNTAIN FOX (best price 10-1) did extremely well to finish as near as he’d over tonight’s course out time later being forced to race wide throughout the whole journey and even though he hasn’t been done too many favours on the attraction front again on his return trip, he’s still faked a damn sight better than his previous rival Scorpion Black.
While ultimate winner had the luxury of hammering the favoured inside railing from box one 59 times ago, the son of Rapid Company was out in the cheap seats in stall 17, thus he only got beaten three lengths in the last evaluation tells you all you will need to know about his performance daily. Additionally, as all of his best form has come over further than a mile at years past his campaign deserves much additional merit and currently returning into a trip which is more in-keeping with his overall profile, yet another solid screen appears forthcoming by a six-year-old who’s stats at the course read a reasonable 22743.
