Brighton: Beau Roc
Was beaten 3 lengths by Rogue Spirit, sent off 2/11f at Wolverhampton. But poorly positioned and matched this winner's closing 2f sectional. Could be a useful horse and this isn't a strong race.
Finishing second to a horse sent off at 2/11f is normal given it’s a race you are not expected to win but matching the winner’s closing 2f sectional excites. That is what Beau Roc did at Wolverhampton and she may have given Rogue Spirit a race, if more handily placed.
I suspect connections were simply hoping to gain experience but the performance on the clock suggested they have an ok horse. She’s short but not unduly given the paucity of this field and still rates a great bet.
