TIME FOR A FLING……
Minus 2.5 yesterday so plus just under 20 in total. Happy but more needed.
I hate going for short prices but we have a gift today. It is in the shape of FLING ME in the bumper at Southwell at 5 20. He was beaten a whopping 24 lengths on his debut and you might be wondering did I have too much to drink last night to be putting this one up. Well, I only had 5 beautiful large bottles of Guinness so that’s not the case !!
Fling Me came up against two mighty staying prospects on his aforementioned debut 86 days ago in a 5 runner contest at Chepstow.O’Faoilins Boy and Top Gamble slugged it out in a driving finish with the former winning. Both of these have run twice since and scored each time so that form is tremendous. In fact I rate both of them as high class prospects for now and the future. Fling Me could not go with them but was not knocked about under tender handling from Sam Thomas and that kindness will be repaid today in spades. He has been given time to recover also by his resurgent trainer Oliver Sherwood who is flying at the minute and he is deadly in this type of event and this track.
There are no top nothchers lurking in this race today I think FLING ME is a penalty kick.
A massive 4 points win at 5/4 with Paddy.
