JOHNB has high hopes for Thursday with two strong fancies.
He says: “If you have been on this thread long enough you may remember Right Of Appeal. The date was the 16th January 2014. I said bets like these don’t come around often as he was so well handicapped that he simply couldn’t get beat.
He had been raced over 6f to get a handicap mark then raised to 12f for his handicap debut, Right Of Appeal strolled to victory by 6 lengths. Fast forward over 3 years and we have another horse – Tribute Act – that is just as well handicapped. on debut she won with any amount in hand after being slowly away and running green she then idled slightly in front but won well enough.
A mark of 75 should prove to be insultingly low for what I think should be a horse that eventually goes on to Group One races. She is well bred and the step up in distance is what she needs, she is also well related and well regarded.
The 218 days off could be a concern along with the fact this yard haven’t had a winner in their last 20 runners but they have been running well and even a semi-fit Tribute Act should be winning this. But as we all know anything can happen from bad rides to horses stumbling, I have had them all.
On any other day of the year So Mi Dar would have been an easy double stake tip but not Thursday. 6-1 Tribute Act is massive.”
