Richard Fahey has an interesting runner at York today:
‘Failed to beat a rival at Doncaster on debut but seemed to show much improved form when third in a listed contest at Sandown in July. A reproducion of that effort should see him go close.’
13:00, York Mcmanaman
What really caught my eye is that Oisin Murphy is booked to take the ride. Murphy has ridden 7 times for Fahey and has had 4 winners…
By Dark Angel, this colt was highly tried in a listed event last time which has not worked out too well but is dropping in class and that should be enough to make him competitive here.
The favourite is trained by Adrian Nichols who has not had a winner for a nearly a month. Mamba Wamba has also been highly tried so on form must be respected. She could be good enough to WIN but I like the chances of Fahey’s especially at the odds.
Ideally, I want to see Fahey’s backed in the market. Currently he is 2nd Favourite which is fine. I want him to stay 2nd Favourite (or better) so any drift will put me off especially if money comes for any of the other runners which is entirely possible.
I am putting half my stake on now (5/1 at 8:30am) and will re-evaluate near the off as to whether I get further involved. For example, I might have some on the place instead If it drifts out to 7/1 or 8/1 etc.
Best of luck, as always.
