13 Running Brave

Running Brave is ideally course suited, having won 3 of her 5 starts at Hollywoodbets Greyville including two consecutive victories in the Gr 2 Gold Bracelet over 2000m on Gold Cup day. She is usually very game and very genuine and it is therefore of great concern that her last two starts have yielded way below par efforts. In January she beat Expressfromtheus in the London News Stakes (Gr 3) over 1800m and is weighted to confirm that form with Stuart Pettigrew’s runner. On best form Running Brave could be a threat but her current well-being is a massive question mark and she is unlikely to find much favour amongst the racing fans.
