KIND SKY defied track conditions and a huge market drift to win seven days ago and Paul Young’s bitch should not be fazed by an upgrade in Romford’s A4 over 400m at 12.46.
She was competing in top grade as recently as October and that latest win came not only on a rails-favouring track but on the back of some lacklustre efforts suggesting it should act as a major confidence-booster.
FIX EIGHT has been performing consistently well with a string of four seconds and David Mullins’ bitch can go one better in an A5 at 11.01.
It is all about taking early command with her and she can clear Rhapsody Angel to do so while, even at a track with few evening meetings currently, it may be significant that all six of her Romford wins have come during daylight hours.
DAPPER LILY was one of the wides to effectively have no chance against the track bias last Saturday and Gemma Evans’ bitch is better judged on Tuesday’s second place, a repeat of which may suffice in another A5 at 11.31.
BY PAUL BROWNOF THE RACING POST THURSDAY 25-2-21::
DROOPYS LORETTA can show her rivals a clean pair of heels when she goes in an A1 over Hove’s 500m trip at 7.56, live on RPGTV/SIS.
She made the Brighton Belle final over the tougher 515m course back in December and was just run out of it by Droopys Aoife on going rated -140.
It was the same story in a 480m open at Perry Barr, when she was shaded on a very slow track. However, with the warmer weather set to produce a quicker track, Jason Kingsley’s bitch can make all.
TOUCHDOWN ZAK had his excuses when beaten favourite last time and can make amends in another A1 at 6.43. Belinda Green’s dog is fancied to turn close-up at worst on the inside and can prove strongest.
AFAN HUNKSTER can capitalise as the sole wide to take Monmore’s A2 at 7.24 for Kim Billingham, while Kevin Hutton’s COPPICE FLYER is fancied on the strength of a big class-drop from the Puppy Derby to an A1 at 8.43.
