Stat of the Day, 29th March 2014
Monumental Man was the subject of monumental support, from 10/1 into 5/1, but was unable to get on the lead and couldn't quicken at the end. No excuses, well enough beaten. I'm siding with a fairly short one for Saturday, but I think he's a standout chance, in the ...
This is all about the favourite, and class horse, Jack Dexter. He won this race last year on soft ground, the same underhoof as today. He then won again over the course and distance on soft ground on the last day of the season, also in Listed company. In fact, his only defeat on soft ground was in a Group 2 on Champions Day, when he finished a close second to Slade Power.
There's nothing of the calibre in this field, and everything looks set fair for a great run. I could spell it all out for you, but I thought a picture might paint it better.
Jack goes well fresh, as he showed when scoring in this last year, and he should get a nice tow into the race from Es Que Love, Inxile and / or Jimmy Styles, before having too much class for those rivals. 9/4 with Hills is at the thin end of our price wedge, but he looks value at that. I make him nearer the 5/4 mark against this sort of opposition.
