17 June 2021: Create Belief Sandringham Preview
1 mile for 3-year-old fillies at 5.00pm live on ITV.
Ben Coen has once again been booked to ride. She is drawn in stall 16 of 30 runners.
This race has been the plan since the day she was bought so it’s great that she is lining up tomorrow. Going into The Curragh last time out everything looked to be in her favour, and she duly obliged in great fashion. As a result, she has gone up 10 pounds in the handicap to a mark of 97 which was probably fair given the fashion in which she won.
Since The Curragh, Johnny has been delighted with her and believes she has come on leaps and bounds but to defy the hike in the weights she will need to take a step forward once again.
The track and trip should be ideal, and we expect her to finish her race strongly. The ground we think is key to her so the more rain the better before 5pm tomorrow. As long as there’s no firm in the ground she should handle it ok but the softer it gets the greater her chance will become.
A hugely competitive handicap which the market suggests and it’s very difficult to pinpoint obvious contenders. We think we have as good a chance as any and would not change her for anything else in the race.
Johnny Murtagh will provide an update tomorrow morning.
Create Belief is currently priced around 14/1 which looks good each way value.
