A good start for the returning A King angle yesterday…
Horses of interest…
2.30 Hexham… OAK VINTAGE – 16/1 (general) UP 10/1
Oh well that poke didn’t come off, and to make matters worse the winner was a TTP pick, that I was on the fence on. Double damn. Moving on…
I may have a fun dabble on this one, in a shocker of a handicap chase. The ‘way in’ is the fact the trainer is 4/8 with horses she moves in distance by 20%+ from last run (thanks Geegeez Gold). So, that caught my attention. The horse is doing something different from recent runs, up 1/2 a mile. Given he looks to have been out-paced over 16f that could be of interest. The horse is only 7, having his 5th chase start. He could just be useless but the hope is that he shows more over this distance, over fences. The yard is also hitting some form. Clearly they don’t have a massive string of horses but from the start of October through to 25th of Feb they were 0/28. In the last 30 days they are 2/7,4 places. Hamilton is 5/21,11p here with all runners and 2/9,3p with her handicap chasers, in the last 5 years. The horse won a novice hurdle over 20f and deep ground seems to be fine.
We shall see. I thought there was enough there for a passing interest at that price. He could just be slow/not very good, but there is something to go on. The market will guide no doubt.
That will be all for today.
