Catching my eye 06/09/19

Just one horse today, not already covered in the two Newsletters that have gone out, is “catching my eye” right now.

FANTASTIC MS FOX, in the very last race of the day (Musselburgh 7-30).

Not a great race by any means (it’s a Class6….hardly Shergar territory, eh), but the Fahey horse box is staying for this one and the trainer has a very healthy 19% strike rate with 3-y-o’s here.

He has booked Connor Murtagh to ride and right now, the jockey has a superb 30% strike rate at Musselburgh, on horses trained by Richard Fahey.

You would not be impressed with the current 0-4 ground and 0-2 trip stats this filly “boasts” but she is ultra consistent….if a little slow.

That statement though, goes for every runner in this race.

Her two runs in this grade, on turf, have produced a win and a place in the runners up spot so we can safely say, this is where she belongs.

It’s a near 400 mile round trip she’s making and if she does not at least claim a top three spot, there will be many long faces going home.

At the current odds of 7/2, she looks a good 20/80 to me.

  1. Catching my eye today is
    Riviera Nights. 3.05 Ascot
    This is a competitive race and many have chances. Archeology has Spencer up for the first time since he won a class 3 in May but his runs since have been disappointing. Jaleel is in form and comes from a good yard roger varies and ridden by a top jockey in Andrea Atzeni but the price indicates its chances. Riviera Nights has been highly tried in three class 2 races. Last time out he was 11th of 12 but lead for five of the seven furlongs then faded quickly. That was in June and he has since had a wind op and today he drops to a class 4 and has on board one of the best jockeys around today in William Buick. At 9/1 generally this represents good value to me I will have a 20/80 but he will probably win or be last.
