ARTSCAPE AND NEZAR BOTH OVER SIX FURLONGS

Artscape - course and distance winner

Artscape – runs at Goodwood

DEAN sends out two horses today, both over six furlongs and both races have seven runners.

Artscape gets the ball rolling in a 6f handicap at Goodwood in the 4.25 and the previous course and distance winner, who will like the soft conditions could go well under Robert Winston, although he has not really gone on since his win at the track back in June.  However, he is only two pounds higher than that winning mark looks overprices at 11/2.

At Kempton in the 7.50 Nezar, forecast 2/1 favourite this morning is weak in the market at 7/2 for a seven-runner six furlong handicap in which again Winston is aboard.  He has the form to go close and looks too big a price.

Both handicaps are tricky affairs but hopefully one or both Harper Lodge Farm horses will go close.
