Monday's Update

2:30 Pontefract - 


3:15 Wolverhampton - 

Dark Kris should take all the beating but no price. Slight worry he could be a bit keen stepping up to 7f. 

6:00 Catterick - 

Not the easiest of races to assess. Mia Diva has a good draw, considering the two favourites don't. She is a small filly taking on colts which isn't easy. She was keen on debut. Hopefully, settles after a lay off and fit and ready. John Quinn's horses can win at speculative odds on their second start. She looks quite fancied in the betting. She may be worth an each-way bet but difficult to assess. The Class 2 stakes entry is positive.

6:15 Windsor - 

Looks a tricky race with the three major hopes probably price to chance. Both Sneaky and Dream Kart are fast. Both have to come back from disappointing efforts, which isn't ideal for any horse of relatively short odds. 

Dream Kart is small and may just have regressed after a couple of hard races. May well come back to form. 

Microscopic is a good-looking filly and big and strong. Physically, she is better than the other two. She has good pace and was well clear of the third at Lingfield when matching strides with Ocasio Cortez. A well-balanced horse, with pace, although tired in the final furlong when beaten by a fair but not a talented horse. Microscopic will run a race, while the two favourites have questions to answer, but may be susceptible to Sneaky and Dream Kart if coming back to form. I would rather bet Microscopic each-way if prices allow, which doesn't look likely. 

Conclusion: Dark Kris will be hard to beat but short odds. Mia Diva could be a fair each-way bet but a difficult horse to assess. I get the feeling she will either win well or struggle. Microscopic is a good-looking filly who will run her race but would be better at each-way prices.
