Lewis Jones has switched his attention back from ante post markets at Cheltenham to the daily slog. On first viewing it seems there are slim pickings for a decent bet but he’s looked closer at found a tasty 7/2 shot at Catterick to get involved with…..
It’s not my usual tactic to be so enthused by a low grade lady amateur riders handicap hurdle at Catterick but a 7/2 shot has grabbed my attention, where the talented Clare Hart, who won a good race at Doncaster earlier this month, takes the ride.
Kyles Faith is the horse in question and Martin Keighley’s charge looks the one to be on in the Download New Racing UK iPad App Lady Amateur Riders´ Handicap Hurdle, Catterick 2:50.
The Gloucestershire-based trainer sends two runners on the long journey to North Yorkshire and that looks significant, especially in the case of the selection who looks a horse that will be winning races in time. Hopefully that starts today and the signs were very positive last time out at Warwick last Friday.
He was the subject of significant support that day, but although close enough he found himself with too much ground to make up turning in and he could only then plug on at one pace.
Keighley’s charge gave every impression that he found the sharp two miles around Warwick far too speedy for his liking. A step up to 2m3f plus an ease in the ground for today’s contest should be right up his street and the market has already spoken in favour of his chances this morning.
Of the nine rivals he has to beat, Summerlea is the one that will probably give him most to think about according to the form book.
Micky Hammond’s charge is nothing if not consistent but three second placed finishes when seemingly set for victory will be a big worry for any of his backers.
Get on Kyles Faith at 7/2 with a two point win stake.
