Leicester Tips: Wowcha

Leicester Tips: Wowcha

Well-backed on debut but won in spite of an aggressive ride. Sectional adjusted speed rating of 97 could make mockery of a 75 official rating.

Wowcha was well supported on her seasonal reappearance at Pontefract and is the type of horse to go in again. Richard Kingscote gave her an aggressive ride befitting of the money being down but the tactic wasn’t conducive to getting a fast time.

Wowcha’s finishing speed was 89.7% of her average race speed, which means she was slowing down markedly in the final 2f, even more than you would expect given the uphill finish at Pontefract.

The 3-year-old earned a speed rating of 69 for that win but if she’d been given a more even paced ride she could have clocked a number around 97.

John Quinn could have a useful horse on his hands and one that is certainly much better than an official handicap mark of 75.
