Hot 2 Trot - Pontefract 4.00 9 La Frillitaire - each way @ 12/1
HOT 2 TROT - the clear favourite is Frederic but no 3 timer is easy, the horse has twice had the run of the race
and gets an extra 9lbs here. At the bottom of the handicap a few are out of the weights and that puts me off
Teak, who is now regressive. Saved By The Bell is intriguing but has shown little spark and is not proven over
this trip, he will fire I am sure at some point and he would be the back up IF the selection is a non runner.
I will have a 1/2 point each way on LA FRILLITAIRE. A Course and Distance winner; gets a hefty pull wit the
favourite for a run just over a month ago at Carlisle. This trip of 18 furlongs is ideal and it is a tough horse who
wont mind a battle. Has run well on Going ranging from Good to Firm to Good to Soft and carries around 23 lbs
less than the favourite; knows how to win and a 12/1 will give us a good run for our money.
