2:00 Leicester - Speculative Bet (9th Aug)

We've been  a little quiet on this page of late. Always time constraints and, as we know, juicy-priced selections don't grow on trees. Think I'm getting slightly confused between oranges and horses but you get the jist. 

Not a bad maiden with and a few form horses which make this a competitive affair. Pretty sure Eve Johnson-Houghton, Mr (Sir) Michael Stoute & Bedford House supremo Luca Cumani will be hopeful of victory. 

But who is that peering over the fence? Chad! No, it's David Lanigan listening to ABBA on his Walkman... (for some reason I got in my mind B E Nielson was one of the blokes in ABBA but I'm sure that's wrong.)  

Anyway, B E Nielsen holds Gershwin in some regard. This son of Shamardal blew his chance after a tardy start, slower than a drunken snail. Better is expected today and at odds of 16/1 is worth a few Shekels each-way. 

Well backed - spread plate - non runner. Keep an eye on this horse next start as likely to be backed again
