Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club Handicap
Class 5 | 1m 1y | Standard / Slow | 12 Runners | Polytrack
Off time: 16:27 | Winning time: 1m 39.33s
Three time winner most recently over 1m at Kempton last September. Disappointing in two starts in 2020 however and market support would be notable off a mark 1lb lower than for that Kempton success.
Finished a good second in a small field 1m2f handicap at Chelmsford in February. Disappointing over the same C&D subsequently and drops in distance on debut for this yard.
Put a disappointing effort behind him when finishing runner-up in a handicap over this trip at Kempton in February. Raised 2lb for that effort and is one to note in this contest.
Showed ability in novice company back in 2018 but had just one start last year when finishing well beaten in a 7f handicap at York (good-to-firm). Others make more appeal on his return from over 12 months off the track.
Twice a winner for Richard Fahey in April last year but has finished well beaten in two starts since joining this yard. Handicap mark is falling as a result but he is probably best watched on his first start of the year.
Broke his maiden at the 12th time of asking when victorious in a heavy ground claimer over 6f at Windsor in October. Claimed for £8,000 following that event and he is worth a check in the market on stable debut.
Registered his first victory when taking a 1m handicap at Kempton by 2¼L in March. Raised 5lb for that victory and he is one for the shortlist for a top yard stepping up in grade.
Beaten 5L when finishing fourth of six in a handicap over 7f at Chelmsford at the end of October. Absent since and is probably best watched as he seeks a first victory since August 2017.
13 race maiden was beaten 13L when finishing ninth of ten in a handicap over this C&D in February on his first start since being gelded. Others look to hold stronger claims on this occasion.
C&D winner returned to form with a good 2L third in a 7f handicap at Kempton at the end of October. Races off a 1lb lower mark here and step back up in distance shouldn't pose any issues.
Placed twice from five starts on the Flat including when runner-up over an extneded 1m1f at Ballinrobe (soft-to-heavy) last June. Winner over hurdles since and he is an interesting contender on his Flat return.
14 race maiden was beaten 4L when finishing fifth in a 1m2f handicap at Windsor (good) in April. Worth a check in the market dropping in trip having placed off higher marks in the past.
