Dreamboat Annie ran creditably, again showing how effective she is at Leicester, and was probably just found out by the mark of 66; eased a pound or two will see her closer.
We run both Bayston Hill and Misu Pete in Nottingham's ten furlong Apprentice Handicap; we are looking for the ground to dry for Bayston Hill (and there isn't any rain forecast) and he is handcapped at 67 on turf compared to 69 on the AW; he should be really competitive off this, as he was at Leicester a month ago when he just ran into a particularly well handicapped person, and might seem to have a better theoretical chance than Misu Pete provided the moisture does come out of the ground.
Misu Pete,who is out of Smart Ass and is a half brother to both Miracle of Medinah and to Mistry, has been a terrific servant to both SH & Rowdown as well as our Racing ClubSH & Rowdown as well as our Racing Club and has won 7 races and been placed 14 times from 54 starts; and, on turf, he has been something of a revalation over the last Summer and a half improving more than a stone. He should run well from the front with a low draw to facilitate this; here he is winning nicely in a similar race at Newbury in the middle of AUgust. Clearly the right approach that might produce a profit is two each way singles and a reversed forecast!!
We have Ensign Ewart (now distinctly more feasibly handicapped), Black Truffle (at his favourte track) and Mistry (yet to win on the tapeta) engaged at Wolverhampton on Friday evening.
