Chepstow 3.30 2 Cinquenta Pasos - each way @ 10/1 / 4 Sir Billy Wright - each way @ 8/1 (BOG asap)

A 6 furlong sprint in the mud at Chepstow is anything but a sprint, can turn in to a real slog;
especially for those that go off too fast. I always look for Course form here and of course we have to look
for form on soft and heavy. What also strikes me is the form over 7 furlongs of both SIR BILLY WRIGHT
and CINQUENTA PASS, both Course winners, both on soft, both over 7 furlongs, off marks of 81 and 85
respectively that make them very well handicapped today. BOG both! (I always think of Billy Wright with
affection, a great footballer. On the day of his funeral, I was working in the centre of Wolverhampton for
a then major Building Society. Two things struck me that day, the Town (now a City stopped - literally) in
respect, as the only Birmingham City fan in the Building I was staggered by the grief; secondly; his wife;
one of the Beverley Sisters, turned up in a Wolves track suit, I thought it very tacky at the time, but on
reflection, it was just so Billy Wright and so Wolverhampton - a place like Newcastle where the locals

are very proud of their team!

(I was very close to a Placespotter tip on BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY in the 5.30 at Chepstow,
seems out of form but the yard is beginning to hit a stride again and can be "very streaky"
either red hot or stone cold, it is a Course and Distance winner on soft and at 14/1 might be
a nice filler for your accumulators - Ian)
