Epsom Tips: Guvenor's Choice
Almost didn't come out the stalls on debut, giving away significant ground on the field. Made most of it up with fastest closing sectional.
Guvenor’s Choice finished fourth on debut at Sandown but was the big eye-catcher in the race. The 2-year-old almost didn’t come out of the stalls and when he did, he found himself immediately 10 lengths in arrears. The deficit was ultimately insurmountable but he ran a cracker to finish fourth, only 2.25 lengths behind the winner.
Quickening off a solid gallop and despite encountering trouble in running, Guvenor’s Choice was the fastest closer by 0.38s.
An adjusted speed rating of 69 is nothing special but given the head-start he gave his rivals, it was more like a mid 80s performance. That makes him an exciging prospect in a novice’s race.
