All very quiet over recent weeks and I haven’t really been able to watch enough racing to pass on any insights.
However, I did come across what I feel is an imminent future winner.
Only trouble is that it is I have no idea what the price will be yet.
JUMIRA BRIDGE (running on Saturday, BATH 3.45 pm) seems to have all the right pins lined up to strike. From a trading point of view, he’s probably not my favourite type of runner – its a five and half furlong race and he almost always starts slowly and needs to battle through horses at the end.
However in his favour is :
a) only 6 runners,
b) doesn’t mind firm,
c) in form (ran really well last time),**
d) right h’cap mark and right Class of race(3).
e) Trainer has collared a good young apprentice who claims an extra 5lbs off.
**What most people will have noticed that in his last race, he gets baulked twice when coming home with a late rattle (would have won with a clear passage) but most will have missed that he also loses 3 to 4 lengths when he gets baulked after about 50 yards when he tangles with another horse.
He’s stone last until the final furlong, then gets baulked twice but still only finishes one and a half lengths behind, storming home.
I have no idea what price he will be or how the trading will go but I’d be pretty sure there will be some money for him pre race. If he’s 2/1 + I might be tempted and if he’s shorter than that you can expect a real good run.
