Rhys Williams has analysed Tuesday’s motion and has one worthy choice at Wolverhampton.
Both of Percy’s Pride’s runs and her breeding recommend that she goes to relish the step up in journey to 1m4f.
Longer journey to go well with
Only 5 runners line up within the 1m4f fillies’ novice at Wolverhampton and I believe one in all them might be a class above the remaining over this journey.
Percy’s Pride ran a very promising race on debut at Salisbury in October final yr over seven furlongs. A bit awkwardly away from the stalls, she raced in midfield by means of the primary half of the race. She was pushed together with just below three furlongs to go after which got here below stronger strain however nonetheless wasn’t making any floor on the leaders. She began to shut with about one-and-a-half furlongs to go and, angled in direction of the within, stayed on strongly late on to complete third.
That journey regarded too sharp for her so it was encouraging that she managed to run so effectively and the opposite 4 of the primary 5 house are actually rated 83, 100, 78 and 80.
She was stepped up in journey and in class to listed firm for her second begin at Pontefract within the Silver Tankard. Dropped out behind the sector, she began to be pushed alongside turning the ultimate bend and was nonetheless in final two furlongs out. While she could not get near the leaders, she ran on effectively within the closing phases to complete fifth.
Both of Percy’s Pride’s runs and her breeding recommend that she goes to relish the step up in journey to 1m4f. Given that she already units the usual on kind with these two runs final yr, she may show to be a class above her rivals.
New Day is subsequent available in the market and he or she is more likely to set the tempo. While she confirmed some capacity final yr, she did not look an apparent candidate to considerably step ahead this yr. Haykal might effectively do this as she regarded clueless early on debut at Doncaster (completed behind New Day) however she does must if she’s going be aggressive as she was effectively overwhelmed.
There is a slight concern that this might be slowly run if Ben Curtis is ready to settle New Day in entrance and regular the tempo down and that may be in opposition to Percy’s Pride so hopefully Shane Kelly will likely be awake to this and experience accordingly if it happens.
While she is obvious market chief, I believe Percy’s Pride must be shorter and any 4/5 or larger appeals.
