We run 2 tomorrow at Dundalk. It’s low key stuff but last week’s win was lovely. Not least because she’s such a likeable filly but it gives you a bit of peace of mind. For a while at least. Cautious Approach turns back quickly, it’s a nice race that wasn’t filling on Monday, she appears to be in excellent form and I thought backing up quickly should be fine. When she faces up that final 2 furlongs, we’ll find out if we’re right. The Alpha Man runs in the maiden. It’s his first time out. The only reason for the delay was he was ignored for the first 3 years of his life and this time last year was an unbroken 3 year old colt. He’s a big unit that would be better suited to starting on a bit of nice turf but that’s a bit away yet and we felt he’d get away with a go on this surface. That’s my first reservation,my second is the stalls. We concentrate on teaching ours to behave and stand still and allow gate speed to come naturally with racing. This lad is slow away and his race could be over after a 100 yards. I had a brief look at the race and there’s a 65 rated filly that’s fancied. If she’s a bona fide 65 filly and that is good enough at the business end then this lad will run very well. His work is better than that. Work is one thing however, he has much more on his plate here but if he was sat mid div, travelling sensibly after a furlong or 2 then he should give a good account.
