"...this is a basement-level contest and she may build up an unassailable lead this time."
Timeform on Maketherounds
Hove's afternoon card provides the first two bets, with track stalwart MAKETHEROUNDS (T4) taken to make all in the 14.52 contest. The selection is well on the way to bringing up a remarkable 200 races, and while she does struggle to last out over the 515m trip, this is a basement-level contest and she may build up an unassailable lead this time.
The last time BRINKLEY'S MARIA (T5) contested A5 company, she destroyed the opposition in a quick time for the grade. She's had her issues at the boxes since, but with no wide seed on her outside, the make-up of the 17.28 is right up her street, and she has a bit up her sleeve against these rivals.
Up at Newcastle, BOOTS (T1) showed a terrific attitude when narrowly getting the vote a week ago, and given the margin of victory, the grader has left her in A4 class. The key to the 17.56 race will be clearing Queenies Tommy on her outside, but if she does that, the contest is there for the taking.
