Review of Week 9th November – 15th November
Piceno was our only runner of the week when he went back to Southwell on Thursday and ran in the one mile handicap and Ben Curtis rode. Piceno was drawn out wide in stall ten but he made his usual fast start and was soon up in the lead. Howe haver just like last week there was another horse on his inside that was keen to make the running too and he joined Pi down the back straight and edged ahead as the field hit the turn out of the back straight. Pi was in a group of five horses that had broken away from the rest of the field and even with over two furlongs to go the race looked to only involve these five horses. Hitting the two furlong from home marker Pi was under pressure and he was dropping away and not keeping up. Inside the final furlong his chance had gone and Ben pushed him out to the line and they finished in midfield. It was a slightly disappointing effort. He was maybe feeling the effects of his last run only last week. I am sure he will be back at Southwell being competitive again soon.
