Fast Shot At Carlisle
Fast Shot finished 4th in the 0-85 handicap yesterday at Carlisle.
David held him up towards the rear of the field in the early stages. Turning for home, he looked to be travelling better than most of the field but unfortunately he hit a few traffic problems at crucial stages ; his race was over 2f out. Howe haver, he did stay on gamely to get 4th.
On the face of it yesterday’s race performance was disappointing. David wasn’t overly happy with the ride he gave him but we think he may be being a little hard on himself. It’s a stiff climb to the post at Carlisle and we think the track took the edge off his speed. We’ll see what Tim says today.
Fast shot had been placed in his previous 8 starts, David riding 7 of them, he knows how to get the best out of him and his consistency is a credit to Tim and the rest of the yard.
