To the manner Born?
Can John Oxx send out Born To Be to score at Fairyhouse in Listed company today? Chris Wilson believes he can.
John Oxx: Trains Born To Be
FAIRYHOUSE: 2.15 Miss Qatar, 2.45 Catch A Wave, 3.20 Born To Be, 3.55 Oor Jock, 4.30 Zauffaly, 5.05 Bishop Of Bling, 5.35 Snow Falcon.
SEDGEFIELD: 2.00 Mixboy, 2.30 Top Of The Glas, 3.05 Venue, 3.40 Safari Journey, 4.15 Theatre Act, 4.50 Irish Roe.
SOUTHWELL: 2.20 Unify, 2.55 Attimo, 3.30 Kamool, 4.05 Ballydague Lady, 4.40 Katie Gale, 5.10 Annamult.
WOLVERHAMPTON: 5.40 Stevie Brown, 6.10 Polymnia, 6.40 Whispering Soul, 7.10 Equal Point, 7.40 Be Perfect, 8.10 Best Laid Plans, 8.40 Livella Fella, 9.10 Zamastar.
Whispering Soul looks as safe a play as anything on a workaday evening card at Wolverhampton.
The three-year-old filly had disappointed in two starts since she was transferred from Ann Duffield's yard after winning a Hamilton seller in June.
But it all came together over Wolverhampton's five furlongs a week and a half ago when she finished second to Kiringa, who looks a nice horse.
Whispering Soul is obviously no world-beater, but it was pleasing to see her finish off her race at Wolverhampton with a bit of fizz.
To that end, the step up to just shy of six furlongs looks a fairly cute piece of business ahead of division one of the FCL Global Forwarding Making Logistics Personal Handicap.
At Fairyhouse, the Listed Blenheim Stakes is the day's feature event and the selection goes to John Oxx's Born To Be, an auspiciously-named son of Sea The Stars, representing the same connections as that awesome performer.
