LESS IS MORE: THURSDAY PLAY
The weather leading to a spate of bigger fields now as the late starters come out a plenty so sparse LIM fare again for Thursday.
Need for keeping it tight at the moment anyway so a simple play in this to try and get the steamer beat. Vinnie Lewis has a bit of class compared to the others as a staying chaser but his novice hurdle form is not special and comes with a penalty gained from a Southwell race which as you know doesn’t always translate. Speed rating as a hurdler poor and stable also hit a dry spell with Speedy Cargo at Sedgefield on Tuesday wilting late on and getting beat despite being bet as a strong fav. So negatives for a 4/11 shot. Worth a pot shot. Caerleon Kate is hard to assess but obviously travels and knows how to win whilst Bodacious Name and Craiganboy can be good enough to take advantage of chinks in Vinnie Lewis. Mainly though VL might beat himself in a faster race than he would like and worth a simple lay to see if we can’t claw some November dribble back.
