Comment: Promising type. 11/2 and tongue strap on for 1st time, career best when winning 15-runner handicap hurdle at Cork (19.6f, good to soft) 3 days ago, plenty in hand. Carries penalty. Shortlist material.
Comment: Pulled up in handicap hurdle at Thurles (22.5f, good to soft, 25/1), soon beaten. Off 6 months.
Best Odds are Bold
The five tiles correspond to the five possible Early Position Figures (EPFs) that a horse can record in a race:
EPF 1 Leader/Front runner
EPF 2 Prominent/Close up
EPF 3 Mid-division
EPF 4 Towards rear
EPF 5 Behind
The colour scale represents the probability of the horse recording that EPF; deeper blues are higher probability, while white indicates lower probability. The horse indicates the predicted EPF.
Arthur's Baby (IRE)
Scotsman's Bay (FR)
Our Majella (IRE)
ARTHUR'S BABY left her previous form well behind when landing a gamble with plenty in hand on her handicap debut at Cork on her return on Sunday and has obvious claims under penalty if this doesn't come too soon. Scotsman's Bay and Our Majella are feared most.
Specific Place Hint: Megara could be expected to race prominently. Of those in the front half of the betting forecast, Miraculum might be well positioned in a slowly run affair: Of the better-fancied horses, Mick Charlie is most likely to be ridden furthest from the pace.
Individual Price Hint: Double Windsor traded at 10% or less of BSP twice on its last 5 starts: Bonnie's Dream traded at 10% or less of BSP and 25% or less of BSP twice on 3 of its last 5 starts.
