Six-Year-Old Gelding Worth The Wait

Suffolk trainer Chelsea Banham has eight horses in her stable and sends one along the M25 to Kempton for the last race this evening. For at least a while Chelsea will carry the soubriquet of "Britain's youngest trainer" but has had a couple of winners and can add to that today. INDEPENDENCE DAY has a few disappointing digits in front of his name but the latest - a third at Yarmouth a month ago - tells a different story, and an examination of the horse's history can add further encouragement.

Independence Day had actually finished last on his previous three appearances and had been away from the course for over three months when racing at Yarmouth. Outpaced early on, he ran on really well in the last 100 yards and seems to have got his enthusiasm back. That event was over five furlongs and, significantly, he goes over two furlongs further today for just the second time. Joey Haynes, Miss Banham's partner, was on board, clearly thinks he needs the gelding needs this distance and he takes the ride again today. He partnered the gelding on his last attempt at the distance back in March and that was inconclusive but reference to his sire Dansili show his progeny to have won around 13% at seven furlongs, certainly not discouraging, and he goes off a mark of 54 this evening, his lowest since winning at Chelmsford 18 months ago.

BRIGAND is a very obvious danger and is a clear favourite. He came back to form at Chelmsford when third two outings ago and confirmed this in convincing fashion when winning at the same course last month. He also goes off 54, just 3 lbs higher than gaining that win at Chelmsford. CAUTHEN is well in on BTO ratings and has been backed but doesn't seem in love with the game at the moment.

At the widely available 13/2 there could be some whooping at the finishing line just after 8.30 this evening.
