Exeter 2.25

Exeter 2.25 11 ACHILLE - hard to ignore the form of the Venetia Williams string at the moment and this one is typical of her French imports. The fact is the horse is proven at the trip on soft and heavy Going, an eye-catching run last time and at 9/2 I will have a 2 point win bet but if you want a place saver, feel free to do so. I would have been very interested in BIG MEADOW but for the drying ground (no real rain in Devon for the best part of a week) and another to keep an eye on at a price is MAJOR HINDRANCE whose Trainer is in form and the step up in trip (no P2P or pedigree pointers) is a bit intriguing!
