We put our trust in Sioux Nation
We waste no time going in with our best bet of the afternoon, throwing our weight behind Sioux Nation in the curtain raiser. A five-furlong maiden, we side with Aidan O’Brien’s two-year-old colt. Making his debut here, his breeding has caught the eye in the run-up, with Coral traders keen to keep him onside.
Ryan Moore taking the ride is a massive pointer, and is sure to hold weight with backers. O’Brien has a solid reputation of winning this race, and we are more than happy to put our trust in Sioux Nation, currently available at 7/4 with Coral.
Rose taken to give us a double
Our next best goes in the form of Sorelle Delle Rose in the 2.25pm fillies’ maiden, where 16 runners battle it out over the snappy six-furlongs dash. Dermot Weld sends in his three-year-old who was seen making a decent debut around here in October.
She went down in a bunch finish that day, ending behind Wayside Flower and Focus On Heaven. Noted for an eye-catching late charge, she got into the contest at the business end and was staying on to run the front two close. There was plenty of promise to be taken from that effort, but there’s more to come, and we should see that on Sunday. Coral have her priced up as 5/4 favourite at the time of writing, and that is worth sticking with.
