FIRST SATURDAY UPDATE.
It is always a pain when you plough through a race for an hour or so , give your in depth analysis of your selection only to see it a non runner. It has happened again , this time in the opening race at Newmarkey. Rye House is a non.
I am going to put up BASSATERRE instead. Like a filly of mine, BASSATERRE can be restless in the stall coming back after a break and then be keen when the action starts so I hope that is not the case with Charlie Hill’s colt today. I think the extra furlong of this nine should suit him and Spencer is the ideal pilot. He will have to get him switched off early and only be seen very late. If he is pulling hard early then our money is gone, simple as. By the same token , if he is amenable to restraint then we have a right shot.
1 pt win BASSETERRE at 11/2 with BetVictor, Bet 365, William Hill and others.
