Dark Horses: Adorable Choice

dascombeTOM Dascombe’s mare ADORABLE CHOICE has done this writer two big favours in recent years. I backed her to win at 33/1 at Lingfield and then at 25/1 at Nottingham the following year. On both occasions she jumped out and made all. For good measure, she did the same at Pontefract (also winning at 25/1) in late 2011. She has a knack of popping up at a decent price but she needs to have things her own way: i.e she needs to get to the front or she will probably decide to save a bit for herself…

Today she makes the long trip to Ayr where she is drawn one. This could help her grab the lead and if she decides to put her best foot forward then 12/1 is overpriced. She is also at her lowest ever handicap mark (55) after some modest recent efforts.
