Speed Ratings - by Lawrence Taylor

HEADLINE

DUTUGAMUNU RATES A PREMIER PICK AT LINGFIELD

 

DUTUGAMUNU (nap) won with something in hand over this track and trip last month (form solid), and in the process managed to generate a premier LTO speed rating of 77.

A lightly raced 4yo son of Ivawood, he has the scope to improve on that effort today, which will make him very hard to beat, even more so as he is once again taking on lowly Class 6 opposition.

A 9-2 shot with William Hill at the time of writing, those odds or bigger should be taken.

Fairyhouse 3-25 Novices Chase 21f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th

 Key Commander  72  50  --  --  72  (35)  (--)

LTO Speed: Lean Araig 91 King Alex 82 Fully Charged 67

LEAN ARAIG looks the best value top-rated runner on the Fairyhouse card today at his pencilled in odds of 8-1. Clear top on the clock with a chase figure of 91, courtesy of his second at Limerick just over a fortnight ago, and a consistent sort over hurdles in the past, all looks set for the gelding to take another step forward this afternoon and finish with his head in front, even more so as he is a proven performer on heavy ground.

 

Kempton 7-20 Handicap (Class 3) 7f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Broughton Sunpearl  96  96  81  34  83  --  --
 Dancing Feet  94  67  --  68  79  94  62
 Gold Brocade  92  67  82  56  81  92  65
 Amber Island  85  77  80  63  69  85  68

LTO Speed: Broughton Sunpearl 96 I'm Available 78 Amber Island 77

BROUGHTON SUNPEARL (nb) trotted up against Class 6 rivals over this track and trip last month, while at the same time managing to generate a list-topping speed rating of 96. Up significantly in grade this afternoon, but lightly raced enough to still be going forward, it will come as no surprise if the 4yo filly puts in a personal best effort here, while her pencilled in odds of 5-1 can be considered fair in a race that doesn't look all that strong.

 

Lingfield 1-25 Handicap (Class 2) 8f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Fox Power  111  94  (95)  (78)  (98)  91  111
 Corazon Espinado  110  110  78  84  82  90  102
 Mohareb  110  88  94  91  110  103  (61)
 Lord Rapscallion  105  105  (73)  (97)  (111)  (87)  (76)

LTO Speed: Corazon Espinado 110 Lord Rapscallion 105 Crownthorpe 104

CORAZON ESPINADO posted a premier LTO speed rating of 110 when coming home the five length winner of a seven furlong handicap at this venue last week, which means we can upgrade his number by several points. Granted, the selection is up three notches in class today, and has an extra furlong to cover, yet is firing hot enough to still be on the betting radar at his pencilled in odds of 5-1.

 

Market Rasen 12-55 Novices Hurdle (Class 4) 19f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Martello Sky  89  89  (--)  (--)  (--)  (--)  --
 Grandads Cottage  83  83  62  (--)  --  --  --
 Across The Line  82  61  64  61  82  51  (--)
 Art Approval  80  80  66  --  --  --  --

LTO Speed: Martello Sky 89 Grandads Cottage 83 Art Approval 80

MARTELLO SKY wasn't foot perfect on her hurdles debut at Fakenham last month, but came home a ready enough winner in the end, while at the same time managing to generate a speed rating big enough to put her top on the clock for today's same class contest. The form of that race has been franked since too, with the runner-up Allavina scoring at Fontwell on Thursday. 

 

Warwick 2-25 Novices Hurdle (Class 1) 21f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Pure Bliss  110  110  102  (--)  --  --  --
 Oscar Elite  106  106  51  --  --  --  --
 Make Me A Believer  102  102  68  --  --  --  --
 Midnight River  101  90  101  96  (--)  --  --

LTO Speed: Pure Bliss 110 Oscar Elite 106 Make Me A Believer 102

An ultra-competitive Grade 2 novices hurdle, with nine of the 12 runners having won last time out. Chief among these is PURE BLISS, who posted a list-topping speed rating of 110 when gamely landing a 2m 2f contest at Exeter last month, with the form looking solid through the third and fourth horses home. Today's extra yardage shouldn't be a problem for this lightly raced and consistent mare, and we already know that she can handle testing underfoot conditions. Up significantly in class, however, so no shame in backing this 10-1 shot each-way.
