The Weekends Racing – By The Sportsman Racing

Frankel (horse).jpg The Wokingham Handicap at 4.25 is a cracking renewal and the draw will hold major sway on the outcome of the race with the field often splitting into three distinct groups across the track. It will pay to watch previous races on the day to see where the winners are coming from. Granted a decent box my selection against the field is Lu Rei at 20-1. Subject of confident reports from trainer Robert Cowell, Lu Rei was in tremendous form when last witnessed on the track at the Derby meeting as he powered home to reel in Sacrosanctus. Effective on variable ground conditions I expect this hold up horse to be finishing with a rattle. Alben Star from the Richard Fahey yard is also interesting. I had a lengthy chat with connections on Wednesay evening and though they expect him to run well they feel he may just come up short this time. Alben Star was rated the best two-year old in Fahey’s yard before picking up an injury and somewhat strangely he was to be found running on the all-weather tracks over the Winter. This was simply an effort to get his confidence up and while he may not reach the winner’s enclosure on Saturday there is a big race handicap in this horse down the line. One to keep onside.

Two winners from three last week on the blog including Crackentorp at 10-1, fingers crossed another couple of big priced runners can run well on Saturday.
