The 4yo last seen on this surface 750 days ago in a 2yo Nursery

The passing of All Weather Horsing Racings 25th Anniversary, although moderately successful by Octobers standards generally, will not last long in my memory. The success of Pour La Victoire (opened 10-3) in the 4:20 Lingfield Park and 2 points New Colours (opened 13-8) in the 4:30 Kempton Park tipped the balance in our favour after earlier failures.

It was the win of Steelriver (opened 9-1) 5:30 Kempton Park that gave us the assurance of a profitable day before being reminded of the previous two days of post-hitting when Tigers Tail (opened 14-1) and Rocky’s Pride (opened 14-1) in the 6:30 and 7:30 Kempton Park repeated the feat when finishing 2nd in their respective races!

Two jockeys that will have fonder memories of the day will be Shane Kelly and Alan Kirby, both riding across the card trebles.

If there was an unlucky performance to take out of the day it would undoubtedly be Miss Marjurie in the Lingfield Park 3:20. Towards the rear of the pack for the vast majority of the 1m 5f trip, Miss Marjurie and Pat Cosgrave made a few unsuccessful attempts to extract themselves from a pocket on the rail. Once able to switch out and deliver a challenge well into the straight, Miss Marjurie finished fast enough to gobble up all but the winner Hidden Gold to finish second by an ever decreasing 1.1/4 lengths.


The last time Miss Marjurie was seen on this surface was 750 days ago in a 2yo Nursery back in October 2013 but there is no doubt that a first win on the All Weather is not far away if connections can find a similar opportunity. The time recorded by Hidden Gold was the best performance on the day at Lingfield Park making the performance of Miss Marjurie even more noteworthy and one for the tracker. Unfortunately I doubt we will be seeing the 25-1 SP returned yesterday repeated on its next outing.


Horse Racing Tips: 14-1 or 13-2?
