RELOADED has not had things go his way that often in his short career to date and failed to fire fully at Newmarket last week when held up in a race where those on the speed weren’t stopping. That was over a mile in a 0-95, so it’s easy to see why he was below-par and now dropped in both grade and trip, he’ll do much better if coping with the tapeta surface. His previous run on the turf at Lingfield showed that a mark of 85 can be defied at some point soon and 17/2 is a couple of points bigger than I’d have him.
Early pace pressure mightn’t be ideal for FELIX THE POET and he will more than likely have to take a lead from one or two of these, but he still looks overpriced returned to this C&D. The 3-year-old ran a cracker here in July when blinkers were in use for the first time and the course is perfect for his running style. His price seems partly as a result of being well beaten last time but that was in a valuable Class 2 so it’s easy to forgive. Back down at this level, he’ll be more comfortable and could go close.
