The Brigadier's lay of the day
/ The Brigadier / 24 October 2007 /
I have found a cretin and his name is Garafena...
20:50 Kempton - LAY - Garafena (Forecast 1.7)
Today's race is the 20:50 at Kempton, a class 6 maiden over 1 mile 4 furlongs. Garafena is forecast favourite trained by Pat Eddery and ridden by Pat Dobbs.
But Garafena is one of the biggest rogues in flat racing. She has been placed in five of her six runs in maiden company but has never won a race. She is vulnerable in a race like this giving more progressive 3yo's weight.
All of her races have been over 1 mile 2 furlongs however she steps up in trip today and is far from guaranteed to stay the extra two.
She was unplaced on her only previous course run when she was ridden by Seb Sanders. Title chasing Seb has sensibly ditched this diabolical filly today and rides John Hills' Geordies Pool.
Garafena is a one paced plodder and lacks a turn of foot and is likely to remain a maiden for ever hence why I will be laying this cretinous example of a racehorse.
