Split The Atom To Be Reward Irish Raider Shanahan

November 26, 2015


12.45 Southwell – Split The Atom

John Patrick Shanahan brings over three raiders from Ireland on Thursday and Split The Atom looks to have the best chance of the lot. The son of The Carbon Unit has only won once in 18 starts, but he has placed in his last two starts and the drop back in trip should suit. Graham Gibbons has been given the opportunity to steer home the 3 year old gelding and it will be no surprise if the money comes for him.

Split The Atom is clearly not the easiest to win with and he has just a solitary win to his name. That victory came back in November 2014, where he was sent off a 5.0 favourite over 6 furlongs at Dundalk. Won that race off a mark of 77 and is racing off 72 today, so is clearly capable off this rating. Is drawn stall 10 and is likely to sit very handy up on the outside.

The all-weather clearly suits Split The Atom better than turf. He has a win and 3 places from 5 starts on the surface and when John Patrick Shanahan sends his horses over the sea, he has a very good strike rate. The main competition is likely to come from Tarando, Keith Dalgleish’s 3 year old filly who is seeking a four-timer. She has improved significantly since having the hood fitted, but is now having to race in Class 5 company and is unproven at Southwell.

6.40 Chelmsford – Guishan

Guishan is generally a consistent mare, and she signalled a return to form when finishing third last time out at Lingfield. It looks like the daughter of Ishiguru has been set up for a winter campaign and as a course and distance winner, she has to be respected.

Guishan clearly goes well on the all-weather and Michael Appleby’s mare won twice on the artificial surface last winter. She is an uncomplicated sort and goes from the front or sits very close to the pace. Stall 8 shouldn’t be too much of an inconvenience and this race looks fairly weak.
