16th Oct 2018 2nd 7/2 – Slipstream – Mick Appleby Leicester

Tight one – but Mick at least gave us the winner too! Original quote: “Slipstream – Down the field last time out at Kempton on the AW but that was his first run on an AW surface so was a bit of an unknown. Returns to the turf today and based on his three previous runs on the grass for us we feel he’s got a much better chance. Trip is fine – stays a tiny bit further too – plus any give in the ground is okay. Won well on debut for the yard and Luke – who rode that day – is back in the saddle for the first time since. A Seller here, so a low grade but on these terms, we rate one of the leading players, with Gay’s runner – Lady Alavesa – the danger. Should not be far away.”
