Today’s Racing NAP
15:50 Salisbury – Eirene (BEST ODDS 9/2 with Betfred)
Eirene takes a step back up to six furlongs after winning well at five furlongs last time out. She has won at that distance before and won at an SP of 10/1 in that last race at Newbury. It’s worth mentioning that she has won in Listed company, and looks better suited than any horse in the field to make this step up to Group 3 action. She’s top weight by a couple of pounds, but that is understandable considering that she is yet to finish outside of the top three in her career. Her best form has come on soft ground, so it will be interesting to see how she does on good to soft ground, but I’m backing on her to take to it well. Usual jockey Robert Winston is replaced with the classy Adam Kirby today, and it only helps matters that Eirene’s trainer has a good record in races involving two-year-old horses on the turf. She should go close.
