There is a
little Listed heat over at Sandown tomorrow afternoon the Racehorse Sanctuary Fortune Stakes due off at 3.05. I fancy one and have taken the plunge overnight.
The Godolpin gelding D'bai was a two time winner at two and though has not perhaps scaled the heights hoped for he has run well in pattern company races several times this season. He did win an Ascot handicap in July on the good-soft and was only just denied in the very soft at Bordeaux-Le Bouscat last time at this level. For me this looks a good opportunity for him and at 5-2 overnight (BPG Paddy Power) I am on the Charlie Appleby inmate for this his form having the most solid look of all those that line-up to me. Richard Pankhurst is feared if deciding to put his best foot forward today.
They do of course go at Happy Valley out in Hong Kong Wednesday but nothing jumps off the page at me out there today.
