Kubler’s Star Could Shine At Salisbury
I was bitterly disappointed by the run of Debutante’s Ball in France at the weekend as I was sure she was going to run a big race. She was away well but Hamelin dropped her out the back and unfortunately, that was where she stayed. I do think she is capable of picking up some black type and perhaps she will be more competitive returned to slightly better ground.
|Daniel Kubler has his string in super shape.
Tomorrow I like the look of one off top weight in a class 6 handicap at Salisbury, and I reckon Passing Star is an interesting contender stepped back up to a mile and dropped in class. Daniel Kubler’s 6yo son of Royal Applause remains a maiden on grass after 12 runs, but one of his best turf runs came here over an inadequate 6f back in June when he was a never nearer 5th off a mark of 73.
He was beaten just under 4L in that class 5 contest for the win and a 6lb drop in the weights combined with the extra couple of furlongs should allow him to get even closer. He is a 4 time winner on the all weather, with two of those triumphs coming over a mile, and though he did win a claimer back in May over 6f I believe that 8f is his optimum trip, especially on turf.
He is trained by Berkshire handler Dan Kubler and he has his string in sparkling form. Mutineer is looking to complete a hat trick earlier on this card, and his form figures for his last 5 runners are 10112. George Downing, on board for Passing Star’s last win, has been booked for the ride and he has a fine record for Kubler. He has 4 wins and 11 top 4 finishes from just 37 rides for the yard, a frame hitting strike rate of 41%.
Hopefully he travels a bit better in the early stages tomorrow and doesn’t leave himself with too much to do. However, he will be staying on when others have cried enough, and he should find life easier at this lower level. Kubler is flying, it is his first start in a class 6 handicap off a career low mark, he stayed on well here over shorter back in June and over a mile I think he has every chance of hitting the frame. 16/1 looks too big and at that price Passing Star has to be worth chancing each way.
