The excellent Alain Couetil runs two in the 1m3.5f maiden at Senonnes (1.37pm) and while he has a strong record with newcomers, his other representative is overpriced to make his second start a winning one.
Orvieto could only finish ninth on debut, but better had been expected that day. Orvieto broke slowly, raced in rear and looked in need of the experience. It wasn’t a debut that suggested he is a winner in waiting, but this looks a weaker race and given Couetil’s positive pre-race comments, it’s reasonable to expect a fair bit of improvement.
However, this step up in trip looks sure to suit, and he’s a well-bred colt, being a half-brother to dual Group 2-winning stayer Watar, as well as to three other winners. Three of the four winning siblings scored on their second start, including half-sister Objection for this yard, here at Senonnes.
It looks a weak race on paper, and though Kingston Narcissus deserves to head the market, his mark of 32 hardly sets an insurmountable level. Couetil’s newcomer Kozany is interesting (and might be worth a saver!), but at more than double the price, it’s worth chancing an improved showing from Orvieto.
1.37pm Senonnes – 1pt win, 0.5pt place Orvieto @ 16-1 (all firms)
