Saturday’s pick goes in the…
Before I post the daily selection, just a quick reminder of how I operate the service. Generally, I’ll identify and share the selection in the evening before the following day’s race and I then add a detailed write-up later on that night/next morning.
Those happy to take the early price on trust can do so, whilst some might prefer to wait for my reasoning. As I fit the early service in around my family life, I can’t give an exact timing on the posts, so I suggest you follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook for instant notifications of a published pick.
Mehronissa at 9/1 BOG
This 4yr old filly comes here in good form, having finished 121134134 in her last nine outings and she’s 6 from 12 on the Flat so far. She’s 5/9 over this 6f trip, 5/8 under Freddie Tylicki and has finished 131 in her three starts on good ground, so she should be well suited by today’s conditions.
She might well have been beaten by the thick end of 5 lengths into 4th place last time out, but there are excuses to be found. She was quite poorly treated at the weights, she now gets weight all round. That was a Group 1, this is Group 3. She didn’t get the soft ground LTO and now runs on a surface more to her liking.
Will all that be enough? Who knows, but at 9/1 BOG, it’s certainly worth chancing in my opinion, especially as…
