Solar Magic to put a Spell on Nottingham

4.20 Nottingham – Solar Magic

This 4 year old daughter of Pivotal has run two progressive races this season, filling the 2nd place berth on both of those starts. Her form has a progressive look and she rates a fair bet at +6500 to snatch the fillies and mares listed contest at Nottingham.

A well supported market favourite last time out in a valuable contest at Ascot, John Gosden’s horse ran a good race, recording an RPR of 105 in the process. She was just beaten by a progressive horse with a better turn of foot, but regardless, that run was still very promising.

The step up in trip to 10f is sure to suit on pedigree, with plenty of stamina on the female side of the pedigree. John Gosden does fantastically well with 4 year old females he keeps in training; 50/216 (23.15%) for a £126.76 LSP, giving an A/E of 1.40.

A nice draw in stall 7 should allow Solar Magic to sit midfield and with trainer John Gosden having a very solid record at the track, she should go well.

8.50 Chelmsford – Fruit Pastille

Although largely a disappointing sort this season, Fruit Pastille could be well handicapped, and is worth taking a risk on.

Hughie Morrison’s 4 year old filly was progressive last season, winning 3 times in a row before bottoming out. She has come back this time round and hasn’t shown much in competitive class 2 handicaps, but the return to the all-weather could spark some improvement (3/10 on the surface)

Hughie Morrison utilises useful claimer Charlie Bennett, and whenever the wily trainer jocks up individuals who are able to take off 7lbs, his runner has to be respected. A record of 35/181 (19.34%) for £116 LSP and an A/E of 1.69 is nothing to be sniffed at.

She could well bomb out, but at odds of +800 , she is worth taking a chance on.
