There was a nice 14/1 winner in last weeks newsletter as DELICATE KISS traveled like the best horse in the race before showing a killer turn of foot to come between horses and win going away. She should be good for a few more wins on the all weather, she’s a late developer and is one to watch out for. They think she can progress beyond a 70 rating so she has a fair few lbs to go!
There is another horse I want to give a quick mention too. He ran for us yesterday and even though he didn’t win or place he ran with enough potential that if the price is right next time then he should be backed. CLIVE CLIFTON – here’s what Sporting Life said about the race… ‘Prominent, ridden to challenge over 1f out, faded final furlong opened 66/1 touched 80/1.’ Well he was entitled to fade it was his first run for 2 years! But the performance showed he retained his flat ability and his mark is certainly very fair. He will strip fitter for that run and will be a big player next race. Hopefully he finished far enough back to go under the radar, he was trading at 80/1 yesterday but not sure we will see that kind of price again. No future entries yet but Connections are looking today for something.

Southwell 1-20 Handicap (Class 5) 14f – Despite being the outsider of the field COUNTRYNWESTERN @ 20/1 is widely available makes some appeal. It’s his 2nd race back from a break and a change of stable. The horse stays the distance and first up won a National Hunt flat race at Carlisle on good to soft. He does seem to go on any ground but has never tried the fibre sand at Southwell. He also has a 5lb claim off his back which should put the horse there abouts. Definitely overpriced for me and worth a small bet.
