Notes from the track #2 – Salisbury 8th July

Nothing beats being at the track to accurately assess a horse’s performance. These notes are selected from the ones that I am using personally to help me provide better value tips to my readers.

These revised ratings and associated notes are designed to be used alongside other information that I hold and not in isolation. Please feel free to use these notes and my unofficial ratings (pR rating) – if you feel that they might be useful to you in some way.

Rousay came home like an absolute train to finish second in 1m, 2f at Salisbury tonight. Benefited from claim of 7 lbs which suggests a rating of 82 is a tad too high. Worth backing in similar company off a mark of pR 75 but oppose if not claiming (apprentice jockey) weight.

Miss Metropolitan found difficulty in running but finished quickly when she found room. Apprentice claimed 5lbs and this one will drop six to a rating of 40 in advance of the next race. Worth backing in a weak 1m 4f race, especially if claiming. I’ve got this one rated at pR 41.

Silverdale ran handily in a small field of four. Officially rated 66 and claimed a further 7lbs. Stayed on terms over the mile but outpaced in the final furlong. Finished third out of four and could be opposed in future, if rating stays above 60 and rivals are exposed. I’ve rated Silverdale at pR 59 for future races.

Pride Of Nepal was held up in the rear and given every chance when switched outside in the straight. Hung right when under pressure and made a marginal impression on the leaders who ran to their mark. Pride Of Nepal was claiming 3lbs for apprentice jockey. As a result, a drop to pR 63 might see this 4-year-old competitive in similar classed handicaps. Back if rated 63 or lower and particularly if claiming.
