It All Points To A Repeat Win For Lightly Raced Sprinter

Newmarket trainer George Margarson sends Spirited Guest across country to the West Midlands for the second time in just over a week today, and the gelding can repeat his recent victory before possibly moving on to better things. He made his debut a year ago in elevated company at Ascot and could hardly be blamed for running down the field behind subsequent Stakes placed horse Cloak And Dagger. After another unplaced effort at Yarmouth, however, he was gelded and put away for the winter. The move seemed to have done the trick when he was just beaten in a three-way photo finish at Kempton in March, showing that the all-weather suited him well.

The son of top sprinter Swiss Spirit had another break from the track before reappearing in September with a second on turf at Yarmouth and then a comfortable win over today's course and distance, putting a length plus between himself and Hassaad, who had won her previous race by nine lengths. He is clearly improving and his nominal rise today of 6lb is partially negated by Jane Elliott taking off three. The latter rode the gelding on his placed effort in March. Wolverhampton clearly suits him well as might be expected of a son of Swiss spirit, with the latter’s progeny being 13% on its Tapeta surface and 11 from 86 at the venue overall.

His biggest threat could be SHOW ME THE BUBBLY who went down in a three-way photo over course and distance last time and who will probably try to make all from a decent draw, four off the rails. She is up 3lb for her latest effort, though, and that might just see her caught near the post. TY ROCK BRANDY travels over from Ireland and is being backed. Recent form wouldn't warrant that support but she is with a new stable and has won here three times from four attempts; she was 12 of 12 on her last visit, however.

At the 10/3 offered by Bet365, Spirited Guest looks the investment.
