|The winning yard team receive their trophy|
First up on Monday, we head down to Brighton. The weather was atrocious the last time we were there but thankfully the ground has dried up a bit since then and that will suit our pair.
Dark Diamond has been running well all year and certainly deserves to win a race. He ran a good race at Brighton in June and the drop back to 1m2f should be ideal. It's quite a high grade race but he is feeling very well. As too is Harry Bosch. He probably isn't at his best at Brighton but that is the only track to hold 0-55 races which he is most competitive in so it should result in a good run.
I get a day at home on Tuesday before putting in the night shift at Kempton on Wednesday.
Veeraya has been struggling off a high handicap for a while now so dropping him into a claimer where you set your own weight is ideal for him. He seems to be best on the all-weather and has plenty of speed for sprinting so he could just bounce back to form.
Another that applies to is Vastly who heads to Sunbury as well. He has needed his first two runs back from injury just to get back to full fitness and now he seems to be in great form. He is rated higher on the all-weather but has his best form on it so I hope he can start to be competitive again.
|Silver Alliance, Vastly, Candesta & Sheila's Heart|
Going with her will be Sheila's Heart. He has grown a lot since the time he spent with us before and seems a lot stronger. He isn't fully wound up for this run so I expect him to improve for the run but it would be nice if he could show a bit of promise for the near future.
|Honeymoon Express (Caitlin) & Veeraya (Mark)|
Limerick Lord ran well at the track before and I think he should be in the shake-up again this time as he is taking his racing very well. So too is Dakota City who was all at sea on the heavy ground at Epsom last Monday but a return to a better surface should suit him. He is yet to show his best form on turf so we will have to see what he can produce.
