G Force can help boost O’Meara’s momentum
Friday 13 June 2014
Of all the accolades bestowed on David O’Meara, none will give him more satisfaction than being admired for his ability to improve or revitalise horses.
The former jump jockey has enjoyed a rapid rise since taking out a trainer’s licence four years ago. Last season he sent out 136 winners and an early summer hot streak suggests even that figure is under threat.
O’Meara is very well represented today, but two in particular stand out: St Moritz (2.20 Sandown), sparked back to life with a visor, and G Force (2.55 Sandown), impressive at York last time and destined for better things.
St Moritz has won his last two starts with ridiculous ease and, although this is tougher, he is still well below the handicap marks he was able to win off earlier in his career when he was quite a classy miler.
Musselburgh stages the valuable Scottish Sprint Cup and one of the 17 tearing down the hill will be the veteran Borderlescott. This is the first time in eight years that the dual Nunthorpe Stakes winner has been rated below 100. He is not without a chance, but is vulnerable to up-and-comers such as Body And Soul.
This should, in theory, pan out nicely for Body And Soul (3.35 Musselburgh), who can track the guaranteed fast pace against the stands rail and then come through late, but this is traditionally a race for the hard-luck story and he will need the breaks.
Danzeno looked very smart at Newmarket, but is higher in the weights and the progressive Charles Molson (3.50 York), a shade unlucky last time, may have his measure.
