2pts win Speedyness at 13/8 or better – Laurel Park race 8 (20:52)
Laurel Park stages a couple of stakes races for juveniles on tonight’s card and it’s the second of them that really takes my interest from a betting perspective.
The race has attracted a field of ten but it’s not a deep affair and looks a fine opportunity for the aptly named Speedyness to bring up a hat-trick of wins.
After winning on debut in June, Jamie Ness’s charge was disappointing on his next two starts but has looked a vastly improved model since being fitted with blinkers.
He’s routed his opposition in two starts since the headgear went on, triumphing by just a length and a half over this C&D in October but value for much more than the winning distance there, while he fairly sluiced home by over seven lengths last time.
The speed figures he recorded last time marks him out as a level above tonight’s opposition and it will be a big surprise to me if he doesn’t take this race with something to spare as well.
