No real excuses for DINGAAN was in perfect position and had every chance with two furlong's to go, though just not quite good enough getting beat neck into second place in very close finish ,loss of £38.00 / 0.38 pts.
Wednesday we have four flat cards , Salisbury,Newcastle,Nottingham,Kempton ,though plenty rain forecast tomorrow so ground conditions are going to be quite testing .
Going to concentrate on the 1 mile 2 furlong claiming stakes at Salisbury.run at 3.40
1 MILE 2F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 5 SALISBURY 3.40
SOHCAHTOA :Hasn't won for over two years ,though has some decent form in good handicaps this season ,finished second at Doncaster & Newmarket earlier in season in class 2 & 3 handicaps,also ran good third in class 3 claimer at York earlier this month , takes big drop in class here into class 5 claimer,Richard Hannon has good record in claimers (8 from 30) this season .
DANGER :INDIAN VALLEY very consistent 3-Y-0,won claimer last time at Yarmouth over 1 MILE on soft ground beating Strike a Deal by 2.5 lenghs,looks well weighted in this claimer off 8 stone 3lb,though has to prove he stays 1 mile 2 furlongs.
VERDICT :SOHCAHTOA should go well here taking big drop in class ,proven over distance and handles any ground , INDIAN VALLEY looks big danger of his low weight ,though has to prove her stamina over this trip.
