6.15 Chepstow: Class 5 Handicap, 7f
Pretty much all his life Field of Vision has been running over sprinting trips. Only twice did he venture beyond 6 furlongs, with limited success.
Nonetheless I feel he’s right in with a cracking chance in this 7f contest at Chepstow. One is that he’s dropping slowly but steadily to a really tasty mark. The second is that fast ground should help to go beyond his usual trips and there is also the fact that his pedigree offers a pretty good chance of getting a trip – in combination I think his two starts over 7f until now are a small enough sample size to rule out that he can’t be effective.
Field of Vision’s form is clearly on the upward while his ratings stay relatively static. In four turf starts he was twice in the money, unlucky not the get his head in front when beaten agonizingly close here at Chepstow last month. He followed up with a strong, albeit luckless run at Windsor, when he never got a chance with a wall of horses in front, yet finished strongly when a brief moment allowed him so.
With an excellent 5lb claiming apprentice in the saddle, a good looking handicap mark and a very winnable race Field of Vision appears a good bet.
