Fakenham stages a Sunday NH meeting – 7 races, from 2.30pm – 5.30pm.
Not too many runners, but some interesting fare nevertheless. Let’s see if we can spot a couple that can run well for us.
The 3.30 is a handicap chase, at just over 2 miles. Class 5, not flying too high, and the one I like is Pittsburg.
This 7-yr-old has been plying his trade on the flat in the main, and is fairly consistent for a low-level performer. There’s ability there – but this will be the first outing in this jumping sphere for 285 days.
I’m therefore taking a punt somewhat, but he’s in good heart and might just be able to exploit his current mark of 79. Small, fun stakes recommended – but a definite squeak in my book.
An hour later there’s a horse taking his chance that I can give a slightly firmer shout out to …
Name In Lights (4.30) is from the Tizzard yard, and has the excellent Brendan Powell up. This is a son of Fame And Glory no less, and needs perhaps to brush up on his fencing.
Could hardly be better stabled though in terms of the development of staying chasers and ran much better last time at Kempton.
With respect, Fakenham is not Kempton Park, and as that race was 34 days ago the interval should be perfect ahead of what I hope will be a big run. This is another 7-yr-old so there’s time to prosper yet.
Have a lovely afternoon, whatever you’re up to.
