TODAY’S SATURDAY STEAMER
2.45 THIRSK – 1PT EACH WAY – DUKE OF FIRENZE @ 10/1 (Betfred/Totesport) BOG – 5 PLACES
It was two years ago today that Duke of Firenze last got his head in front but he arrives here on a mark 21lbs lower and he is taking a significant drop in class. Both the track and the soft conditions would not have suited him last time out at Chester but he showed himself to be in tremendous spirits in finishing second. A cavalry charge with plenty of pace on is just what he needs and he is handicapped to go very close here. If he can stays in touch and avoids trouble in running then he has to be in the shake up.
