Bred To Be Smart – Perfect For Pontefract

Australian breeding is to the fore at Pontefract in the 4.30 on Monday when lightly tried 3yo Lonhro colt Gloriosus looks to bounce back into the winners enclosure after failing last start at Goodwood and Mark Johnston looks to have found the perfect spot and William Buick tends to agree!

Pontefract 4.30 #6 Gloriosus 6.00 / 2.00 – deceivingly well bred type by Lonhro (Octagonal) out of the Sadler’s Wells mare Sky Song who has already got the high class 5 time winner and 3/4 relation to this one in the form of Laverock who is by Octagonal the sire of Lonhro, comes into this race having only its 5th career start with big scope for more, total forgive run last time out over 8f at Goodwood, go on maiden win 2 starts ago over 7 1/2f at Beverley when making all to hold sway over the well regarded Redoute’s Choice 3yo colt Time’s Arrow, those 2 pulled away from the rest putting a further 4l margin back to 3rd, visually and on figures they were clearly superior to their foes that day and the form references out of the race stack up left right and centre suggesting this one has very good scope for more, pace scenario suggests likely to get a fairly soft trip on the front end as the only seen natural leader, should stay the 8f strongly on that basis and breeding suggests the same, if it’s last start failure was erased from it’s profile it would be the 3/1 favorite here, goes around as a 6.00 / 2.00 chance, we have it rated as the clear cut top elect as a 3.20 chance.
