Peter Naughton's Three To Follow

19th December 2017, 13:50 by Phill Anderson

A look at three of the horses to have caught the eye of Racing UK pundit Peter Naughton over the last week.

Mundersfield

Wednesday December 13

Switched to Polytrack in the 1m2f maiden at Lingfield having shown promise at Wolverhampton three weeks earlier. Despite being drawn in stall five, he could never get into this contest.

David Simcock's three-year-old was held up towards rear and nudged along when making no impression on the leaders from two-out. He’s better than what he showed this day so keep the faith.

Music Major

Wednesday December 13

Caught the eye when second in the first division of the 1m2f handicap. Held up in eighth, he made an effort on the inside but couldn't gain a clear passage and was snatched up well over a furlong out.

Ridden, he ran on well inside the final furlong and wasn't beaten far by well fancied Bayston Hill. He may be interesting in the same class of race next time out.

Satchville Flyer

Wednesday December 13

Easy to back in the first division of the extended 1m handicap at Wolverhampton. David Evans' six-year-old was returning from a two-month absence and raced wide throughout, so deserves credit for finishing a close third. Held up from stall eight, he made headway on the outside from over two-out but he hung left before the furlong pole. He may do better next time.
