Frontier Spirit was a very good 4th yesterday at 33/1 to give us a small profit no the day.
This is a very nice race for a Sunday and one of my old favourites arrives here in good form. Local Hero’s record in these good ground fast 2m mile end of season races is very good. He seems to always be competitive, but when you see him placing this year in a couple of similar races on soft ground in Jan/Feb you’d have to think he is at the top of his game as he will be much better on the good ground here. He also ran an eye-catching race at Cheltenham when he travelled really well and just didn’t stay the extra 4 furlongs up the hill, but that in my mind showed his current form. There are a couple of unexposed ones in this but the selection is proven of higher marks than this in these race and 10.5 with the couple of non-runners is great value.

I’m going to have a small saver on another favorite of mine solely for the simple reason that if the party is going to get started I’m going to be there. Dan Breen is down to a workable mark and although he has most of his form on soft ground he has run well on good before and is simply too big a price. Paddy Power have a special of money back if 2nd or 3rd and with 20/1 on that offer it can’t be missed.
