SAMOVAR was a 14/1 winner for this column last Thursday and I usually would not be keen to punt a handicapper like him on the back of a win, never mind when he’s 2lbs wrong at the weights. However, there was a lot to like about how he performed on the day despite missing the break and his superiority was more pronounced than the winning margin suggests. This C&D is obviously his speciality and in a race where the three market leaders have not won at the track, he could pop up again.
From a mark of 68, there’s no doubting BINT DANDY is a well-treated mare having scored off 79 & 80 last term and she shaped with definite promise dropped to this trip at Lingfield last time out, staying on strongly to grab fourth spot. The fact that the winner had enough in reserve to hold on after making the running suggests the pace may not have been hard enough for the selection and if they go quicker from an earlier stage this time, her late thrust might come in time. She should go well.
