3.50 Hamilton: Class 6 Handicap, 1m 4f
True Romance drops for the first time into a class Handicap ad also down to a career lowest mark of 56. Reason for this are four incredibly poor showings this year – a surprise after the gelding looked reasonably progressive last year.
Clearly the yard change hasn’t done him any good, on the other hand his SP’s tell a story of a horse not fancied to do anything in those four starts anyway.
It looks different today, with money coming on for True Romance, who’s backed well and besides the low mark and drop in class also has blinkers fitted for the first time. That might be enough to revive him and any return to some sort of last years form will see him go close.
