9.06pm Crayford 07/10/2017 A3 Grade
Monagea Champ – A miserable 1/36 record in this country, that came when running riot in an S5 contest last month. He has very little in the way of early pace which means he always has to do things the hard way. He has the times in the book to be competitive for the places, but needs lots of luck to win.
Swift Thruxton – Got the better of Jose on his debut, when he moved off at the third bend and let her up his inside. She has run well twice in this grade since, failing by just a short head last time out. She has smart early so should lead the inside, which makes her the biggest danger to Jose once more.
Franco Lola – Made a smart impression when winning A5 and A4 on her first two starts, she encountered a troubled ride on her first effort in this company. She came into season about the same time as Dazzle, so is going to be better still in a few weeks so look for her to continue climbing the grades.
Trinity Molly – Spent the majority of the summer plying her trade over the 540 trip here but ran with credit in an A2 when she trapped out in her best fashion. She may find things happening a little too quick in the first half of the contest, with the majority of her splits in the mid 3.60’s but she would be a danger to all if turning clean.
Rogue Ebear – Four times a winner in A4 grade, he has not managed to get his head in front when flying this high in the past. Has broken 3.60 on the sectional just twice in his last twenty-seven outings so shouldn’t trouble Jose on the run to the bend. The majority of his wins have come when turning front rank, it’s hard to think he can do that here.
Meenagh Mourinho – Four sectionals of 3.57 or quicker in his six looks at the track, including 3.51 and 3.52 the last twice, he looks the obvious leader tonight. He ran the third bend better last time out than he did when beaten by the 2 dog on his debut so has every chance of being able to turn that form around. Looks to have another solid chance if trapping as he can once again.
Jose has the early pace to be the obvious leader in this contest, with a lack of consistent early across the field. The 2 got the better of him when he moved off at the third bend on his debut but he ran that bend much better last time out. The 2 does look the main danger once more with no early pace inside her in 1, but the 3 needs to be respected as she is likely to be A1 grade sooner rather than later as she improves post seasonal rest.
