Kim Muir Challenge

The final race on the Thursday isn’t an easy one to pick. The market starts at 12/1 for this huge field of staying handicappers. The ability of the amateur rider in this is often a factor but the Harry Fry trained JUST A STING boasts some strong form over the winter period. 20/1 is a big price as an each way shot and bookies will often offer more places for…

They have battled a finish out twice this season already and they have each prevailed on top once. However, with a round of…
