For second bet on Saturday we go to Nottingham for decent little 6 furlong listed race .On ground described as good .
3.55 NOTTINGHAM 6 FURLONG LISTED STAKES :
8 runners declared for interesting listed race over 6 furlongs .The three main contenders are Restiardargent ,Scream Blue Murder & Sound of Guns
RESTIARDARGENT :Useful French filly ,winning three times in 2011 for H A Pantall including two group races at Maisons-Laffitte. Looked little disappointing last season apart from finishing excellent third behind Black Caviar in Group one Diamond Jubilee stakes at Royal Ascot .Should go well dropping down in class on first start for William Haggas.
SCREAM BLUE MURDER :Lightly raced Irish filly .Won 5 furlong maiden in good style at Bellewstown in July .Finished good second in 5 furlong listed race at Naas last month .Looks open to plenty improvement after just four starts .However seems well suited to soft ground
SOUND OF GUNS :Had some useful form last season in group & listed company ,including finishing good third in group two Flying Childers at Doncaster behind the Richard Hannon trained Sir Prancealot. Ran a lot better than finishing position suggest in group three Neil Gwyn after getting repeatedly hampered .
VERDICT : Restiardargent on her first start for William Haggas, has to be respected and would take plenty beating if she can reproduce last seasons Royal Ascot form ,though apart from that race she looked disappointing last season .At the prices she looks no value at 7-4 .
SOUND OF GUNS looked an improving filly last season and had some solid form in group & listed company .Has plenty of speed and will be suited by the return to 6 furlongs ,after getting luckless run in Neil Gwyn at Newmarket last time .Odds around 3-1 look very fair value .
