This is a Selling Handicap over 9f.
I am taking the view that ROYAL SEA is too short at around 13/8. I respect any horse with a very recent win and he may well bolt up but I have other issues about him which tell me he is too short. He won a bad race last time and I looked at all 3 year olds that ran in these races when winning last time. I found a 1-25 record and that winner was a filly. It’s not an impressive record and ROYAL SEA has only had 6 career starts. He may well win but I did not want to take the risk at the price. He was sold recently for only 800 Guineas which doesnt say too much and I am looking for something at bigger odds. I would not risk SAFWAAN having had just one run since March.INDIAN EMPEROR and THE WHICH DOCTOR have absences I can’t live with. ANYCHANCEOFABIRDIE has spent all his short career in maidens ,sellers and claimers and I can’t find a 3yo like him. I decided not to risk ARABIAN FLIGHT. She ran well last time but she is a filly and that was only a 3yo handicap and I dont like the fact she has raced once in just 87 days.GUAVA is an option as she was behind ROYAL SEA last time and gets a weight pull. Not entirely happy that she is drawn one but a recent winner has won from this stall and she has a very recent run and It helps a lot that she is a much bigger price than the favourite. I think she is a reasonable each way bet.
GUAVA 8/1 Each Way at Coral
