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