Horses To Follow » Fishable


Fishable is worthy of another chance. He only finished 11th in the 10-and-a-half-furlong handicap at York on Friday, but you can just put a line through the run. He was rearing when the stalls opened, with the result that he lost about five lengths on the field at the start. He recovered the ground, and he actually travelled well into the home straight at the back of the field and along the inside. He started to make ground from the three-furlong marker, he moved in behind the front rank on the run to the two, but a gap closed on him there as Khagan and Uzincso converged in front of him, and any hope he had of getting involved in the finish ended there. David Allan just allowed him come home in his own time after that.

Tim Easterby’s horse remains a horse of interest. A dual winner last year at Ripon, his last two runs last season at York and Doncaster were good, and he started off well this season too by finishing fourth in a good handicap back at Ripon. He was keener than ideal that day, on his seasonal debut, but he still kept on well to go down by just over two lengths to Zabeel Champion, who has won twice since and is now rated 9lb higher than he was then. Fishable was nicely strong in the market before Friday’s race, and he is deserving of another chance off this mark of 92. He will be of interest wherever he goes next, but he will be of particular interest if and when he races again at Ripon or back at York.
