Morning all! A day in the office doing videos today so we will have plenty in the satchel for you all by the end of the day I would imagine. I just wanted to bring to your attention a couple of horses that have been served up by Proform this morning. There is nothing at all strong today or running from the eye-catchers but these two should give you an interest.
First up is just a note about TOOT YOUR FLUTE (2.50 Lingfield). The son of Invincible Spirit ran 8th of 9 on debut on the turf course here at Lingfield and was pretty green on very much the first day of school. He should come on a bundle for that effort. The interesting fact about this is the jockey booking. When William Haggas reaches out for Silvestre De Sousa they have a combined strike rate of 38.46% which is incredibly strong. There are some potentially nice horses in this line up and there has been bundles of money for the Godolphin runner (who has a Derby entry) so the 16/1 available on Toot Your Flute is probably fair based on what we have seen so far, but with that experience under his belt, a switch to the all-weather and the assistance of Silvestre, I think he will probably out run those odds quite considerably.
The second one just to keep an eye on today is ALL OR NOW (5.10 Ballinrobe). Now I hardly ever play in Ireland but again Proform has drawn my attention to the jockey booking situation. When Denis Hogan books Brian Cawley they have a very succesful 38.10% strike rate together. Couple that with the fact that based on his hurdles form All Or Now is well handicapped off just 91, he is surely worth a small dart this afternoon. There is some 7/1 available if you shop around.
That’s it for this morning, just a couple of small notes.
