Fortune set to favour Brave Swindon layers; DOG DAY AFTERNOONS.

ONE TO PLAY Bup Bups (Swin) ONE TO LAY Freedom Brave (Swin) NORMALLY in this section I put up a runner that was probably unlucky and certainly caught the eye in defeat. However, having backed and watched Bup Bups win at Swindon on Monday afternoon, I have to suggest this as a dog to follow.

Grant Gillett's April 11 youngster was stopped in his tracks twice but showed tremendous back-straight speed and a will to win. This was only a moderate A8 competition and just his second win from 21 starts, but the penny may have dropped now and he can surely strike again in the lower grades.

MONDAY was a mixed day for both trainer Gillett and myself as I also wagered his Freedom Brave in the 5.17 later that afternoon. All seemed to be going well for the 3-1 chance, who showed the early pace to lead at the first bend.

However, he looked a beaten dog as early as the second turn as eventual winner Central Banker left him for dead down the back-straight and the white flag was soon hoisted. The April 09 blue eventually finished a well-beaten and disappointing fifth and is one to take on with confidence on his next appearance.
