IRVING FOR THE TEAM
i am plus 13.75 going into today and a big day it is.
I secretly harboured hopes a few months ago that when we purchased IRVING from Germany that he would be smart enough to contest Graded races. We passed him on to Paul Nicholls and he has done a fine job for his new owners. He has won his first two races in the UK. I am delighted that he has lived up to our hopes.
He steps up today to Grade 2 level and has a Henderson beast to beat. IRVING is second favourite and is up against it but I am confident he can outspeed the market leader. 2 pts win at 9-4 generally/
I also advise a 2 pts win on FRONTIER FIGHTER who should relish the stepback in distance in the 4 50 at Wolverhampton. He is a whopping 11-2 with Corals.
