After his 6/1 winner on Saturday, The Messenger has a bet on Vosne Romanee in the Sunday Feature at Kelso.
Kelso 4.25: Vosne Romanee
A simple process of elimination means Vosne Romanee looks the one to beat in Kelso’s feature.
His own claims are very sound. An out-and-out two miler who must have fast ground, his options are very limited given his current rating of 146 as there are few races in the summer at his distance for horses of his ability. This is one of them and this sharpish left-handed track is just what he likes. He has produced two comfortable wins around Stratford this summer.
Of his four opponents, Simply Ned makes his usual reappearance in this race, but he has been beaten in the past two years, and is 4lb higher than his defeat in 2017. At the age of eleven he is likely to need his first run more than ever. Nuts Well lacks chasing experience and has been off for almost a year. Vaniteux surely needs a longer trip these days and Theflyingportrait is not in the form of old.
