Bowie ran a decent race at his beloved Market Rasen earlier, but he pulled hard in the early stages and he didn’t get home. He actually travelled well for a long way, but when push came to shove he found little. Tomorrow’s 16/1 selection goes at Chelmsford in the opener, and I think Socialites Red looks a crazy price on her return to Chelmsford.
|Scott Dixon has plenty of well handicapped horses.
This 4yo filly is trained by Scott Dixon, and his yard has been struggling for winners. However, he had a couple run well at Southwell last week, and his string could be about to turn the corner. He has a lot of nicely handicapped horses right now, and Socialites Red fits into that category.
This 4yo filly has run twice at Chelmsford, and she ran a lovely race on her first visit back in April. She was beaten just over 4L in a class 4 (6f) off 71, a cracking effort in the context of today’s race. It was no surprise to see her well backed on her return here off 9lb lower in a class 6 (5f) back in October, but she was hampered at a crucial stage and could only manage 7th.
She was given a couple of months off after that run and she had a couple of outings at Southwell and Wolverhampton earlier this month. The latter run off 61 was decent, beaten just over 2L, and she has been dropped to a career low mark of 59.
She is now 12lb lower than for that class 4 6f run last April, and she has landed a decent draw in stall 2. If Socialites Red gets away well she can make a bold bid for Dale Swift and, at odds of 16/1, she is worth backing each way in a wide open looking race.
