Some snippets from my conversations this morning;
In the Free handicap there is a lot of confidence behind Stimulation. No surprise perhaps as he is the favourite.
Pete tells me that Skadrak will like this ground and trip. There are, however, very strong vibes for Virtual who I’m told was unlucky last season and has wintered very well. It may be between the two of them, but then the market suggests this anyway.
Mookhlesa apparently goes well in the last. Crystany was beaten by one of Barry’s that I had been tipped last time. This doesn’t put me off – I’ll stick with Crystany.
In the last at Beverley I like Italian Goddess. Michael Bell is in good form, this filly is bred to improve from 2 to 3, she should do a lot better over the long trip and she may also do well for carrying top weight in a handicap.
