Poor enough days racing today with nothing really standing out so I’ll go with a couple of longshots for min bets.
It takes a bit of a leap of faith to think that Chilworth Icon might just have a small shout here but at 40/1 not much indication is needed. He is in here of a very low mark with a 7lbs claimer on and proved last year that 5 furlong’s was probably his best trip with a win at Sandown of a higher mark. He also ran well in the Portland after and although has been very poor this year it was the same last year until his win. At the price he looks a bit of value to like his very light weight here and get into the race and I’ll go for a min bet.
½ Point EW 40/1 Bet365 5 places
Sir Jack Layden was a decent 2yo who has struggled of too high a mark since but despite finishing well down the field from an outside draw last time out at york, I saw a little hope in that run and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he was to start to show a bit of form of a much reduced mark here. He is worth a min bet at 50/1 just in case
½ Point EW 50/1 Betfair Sportsbook
Mukmal started to look like he might be about to strike last time out here and in this weaker race getting the 3yo allowance he might just be the value getting load of weight from everything. He has shown enough a few times that a mark of 90 should be doable and I thought he would be shorter than 20/1. I’m also going to have a min bet on Hoof It at a big price , he should have needed his first run and if he improves from that he can get involved of this mark
1 Point win 20/1 Mukmal Generally
½ Point win 25/1 Hoof It Generally
Made for a great day…once again proving you can be the master of these long shots.
