RacingTV Profits Returned To Racing Handicap
Class 4 | 1m 3f 179y | Good to Firm | 7 Runners | Turf
Off time: 15:40 | Winning time: 2m 34.73s
C&D winner was placed over hurdles at Southwell (good) in July last year and is an interesting runner on his first Flat start since finishing eighth on the all-weather over 1m4f at Kempton the previous March.
Struggled in two turf starts since returning from a break and others hold more obvious claims racing off a mark 2lb higher than when winning at Salisbury (1m2f, good) in September last year.
Decent fifth at York (1m4f, good-to-soft) on first start back from a break and showed improved form when runner-up over the same trip at Pontefract (good-to-firm) a fortnight later. One to note despite a 2lb rise in the weights.
Impressive 1m2f novice race winner at Chelmsford in January but struggled when last of eight over the same trip at Ayr (good-to-firm) on handicap debut last month. Likely capable of better stepping up in distance.
Winner of a 1m2f novice race at Lingfield (good) just under a year ago but struggled over an extended 1m3f at Windsor (soft) in October on his most recent start. Worth a check in the market on seasonal debut.
Twice a winner this year including by ½L in a 1m4f handicap at Catterick (good) last month. Bold show expected off this 2lb higher mark.
Ran well when 4½L fourth in a handicap over 1m2f at Windsor (good-to-firm) last month. Dropped 1lb for that effort and interesting to see how he performs back up in distance.
