WED APRIL 10TH. SECRET MISSILE.
I stupidly lost 3 points yesterday and of course our nap was a non runner. Today is difficult but as ever I will be looking for value and I must remind you again that this site will ALWAYS show a profit so even if I do have a few dodgy days just keep backing each and every selection, that way you are guaranteed to come out in front.
Nottingham 2 40. Last backend I was trying to purchase a filly from the very genuine William Muir and throughout those negotiations he kept telling me about how highly he rated his then 2 year old colt by Sakhee’s Secret called SECRET MISSILE.
The colt duly dotted up at Linfield in November after 3 somewhat unluckily placed efforts beforehand. You will recall I napped him that day. He reappears today in a viciously hot 3 year old five furlong sprint handicap in Nottingham’s 2 40. He will have to turn the tables on his 5 length’s conqueror from Wolverhampton and likely second favourite Moviesta who of course is owned by Harry Redknapp. The handicapper is only allowing him 3 lbs for that big defeat but I think he has got it about right. The hot fav Fils Anges will also be difficult to overcome.
Secret Missile has never actually raced on grass but he will have no problem with it. My biggest worry is whether he will be able to lay up the speedballs early on but if he can then we can start getting hopeful. He will come home strongly.
1 pt win at 8/1 with PP.
