Work Watcher - Epsom 7.50 5 Compton Mill - each way @ 9/1 ((Lads/Coral/BV)
A race over 10 furlongs where there are a number of front runners and a few of those are not conclusively
proven at the trip. There is always the chance that one can "get away" but front running is not as easy as
it looks here as the pace judgement is vital and running downhill can make front runners go too quickly;
horses do have legs and hearts and not wheels and engines after all!
The favourite (Silver Ghost) is strong but not bomb-proof. COMPTON MILL is a 10 furlong specialist;
proven at the trip, can handle a variety of Going and from a yard amongst the winners, a 45 day break
will see him fresher than some and his handicap mark is within his range, it is not stand out but his proven
ability at the trip, should see him finishing as well as anything off a decent gallop. At 9/1 with at least 4
of the bigger Bookies is solid each way value. The dark horse if you want a bit of shrapnel at a bigger price
could be Berrahri but this is a bit of a step up in grade for him so a place is probably the ceiling of expectation.
