Serendip­ity seeks com­pen­sa­tion at Wolver­hamp­ton

The Citizen (KZN) - - Racing Express - Lon­don

– Via Serendip­ity could not quite hold Another Touch at New­cas­tle last time, but Stu­art Wil­liams' six-year-old can gain his re­venge to­day in the Bom­bardier Golden Beer Con­di­tions Stakes at Wolver­hamp­ton.

De­spite run­ning too free in the early stages, Via Serendip­ity looked like land­ing the spoils when he hit the front over 200m out, but he had no an­swer to Another Touch's late chal­lenge and went down by 0.75 lengths.

That nar­row de­feat in a fasttrack qual­i­fier meant Via Serendip­ity just missed out on se­cur­ing a place on All-Weather Cham­pi­onships Fi­nals Day.

How­ever, it was a good ef­fort and he can gain com­pen­sa­tion against his old ri­val.

Em­ber's Glow has been quite con­sis­tent of late and can regis­ter a third course suc­cess in the Bet­way Clas­si­fied Stakes.

Mark Lough­nane's six-yearold ran a nice race at Kemp­ton last time when third to Wally's Wis­dom and a re­turn to Dun­stall Park can re­sult in a fourth ca­reer win for the Se­poy geld­ing.

Op­por­tunist should give a good ac­count in the Bet­way Novice Stakes.

This Mar­tyn Meade-trained four-year-old did not see a race­course un­til De­cem­ber, fin­ish­ing a never-dan­ger­ous fifth over 2000m at Ling­field.

But there was money for him, sug­gest­ing he shows abil­ity at home and while Ben Cur­tis felt he was never re­ally trav­el­ling, he did make rea­son­able progress in the clos­ing stages.

This Cape Cross colt prom­ises to be a dif­fer­ent propo­si­tion with that ex­pe­ri­ence un­der his belt.

She's Easyonthee­ye lived up to her name when third at New­cas­tle fol­low­ing an 84-day break.

John Quinn's three-year-old is sure to be at fever pitch af­ter that when she con­tests the Lad­brokes Where The Nation Plays Hand­i­cap.

Goobinator suf­fered a sur­prise de­feat at Wetherby last time but can re­coup losses in the rac­ingtv. com Novices' Hur­dle at Carlisle.

This four-year-old went down by a head to Hasankey hav­ing made most of the run­ning but did have an ex­cuse as he was found to have sus­tained a leg wound.

Goobinator has had five weeks to re­cover and trainer Don­ald McCain looks to have found a nice race for him to re­turn to ac­tion and win for the third time over hur­dles.

Jen­nie Can­dlish's horses are in good form and Sleepy Haven looks another win­ner for the Stafford­shire trainer in the New­big­gin Hand­i­cap Hur­dle.

This 10-year-old has not won since 16 De­cem­ber, but it looked like his turn was com­ing judged on his lat­est ef­fort when third to Strong Glance at Mar­ket Rasen. –
