Haveyoumissedme was a very welcome winner, and was the first winner of September. He was very well backed, going off at 13/8 after being tipped up at 3/1. The race didn't go as expected, as he didn't go for the lead, but it doesn't really matter as he still beat the favourite.
At the time of writing, King's Castle is the favourite, and you'd have to say that he deserves to be at the top of the market. However, despite having strong claims, I think MILLIONS MEMORIES offers good value against the favourite, and shouldn't be underestimated.
This trip of 11f looks sure to suit, as he appears to stay on strongly in his races over 10f, and finds 12f slightly too far, so this in between trip should be ideal. Today's ground should remain Good To Firm, with the ground being described as that last night, and the forecast from now till racing appears to be dry. Fast ground is another condition which is needed for Millions Memories to have his best chance of getting a win, as his form on any other ground isn't as good.
I don't quite understand why he is the price he is, as his form is up there with the best on offer. His win earlier in the season at Chepstow where he beat Chai Yo Power reads very well. That horse has since won three times on the bounce and has improved 19lbs since. The horses in behind have boosted the form as well, with the 3rd placed horse finishing runner-up in a Class 3 and again in a Class 4 at York on the weekend just passed. The 4th also finished runner-up in his most recent run, nearly winning at odds of 20/1. The selection then finished 3rd in his next run, behind a well-handicapped horse, who has won twice since. This race today doesn't appear to have a horse who is on the level of some of the horses he competed against in those two races, so he should have a EW nice chance.
Before last time out, INDIGO TIMES didn't really have an attractive profile to be a turf horse, but he won well at Newmarket, and that was enough for me to believe he is still attractively weighted.
He appeared to be an All Weather horse, with six wins coming from thirteen runs, and before his last run he was 0/4 on turf. However, despite looking like an AW horse, he clearly appreciated a fast surface, as he won quite comfortably in the end, and it was a good race which he won. Today's favourite is in a rich vein of form, and I can see why people will be backing him, as they might think Indigo Times is still a risk on turf, but when you consider the selection easily put the Ebor Antepost favourite in his place, I wouldn't be too worried about today's opposition.
Off a mark of 83 you'd like to think there is more to come, especially on turf where he is lightly raced and only appears to act on a fast surface. He gets good chunk of weight from the main market rivals (10lbs and 13lbs), so they'll have a hard task in giving that away.
