On the back of a productive spell sprinting, HEADWIRE JET has done little wrong in finishing second in a brace of standard-trip contests in recent weeks. He has form at a better level than the 16:18 contest at Kinsley last year and this looks to be a suitable opening.
We’ll know our fate early on the Poole evening card as the remaining bets come in the first two races, with GUINNESS TINY an appealing candidate in the 18:04 contest. It’s fair to say the selection hasn’t been firing on all cylinders at present, but crucially he now gets the downgrade to A4 company and as if often the case in this situation, he now looks an appealing candidate on the clock.
Continuing the theme of downgraded performers, SARUM SUSIE has found the going tough in A1 class in recent weeks, but the difference between that grade and A2 company can be pretty big, and Sarum Susie is fancied to bounce back in these calmer waters at 18:19.
