3:50 TANGLED 7/2
This is a veterans race for runners aged 7 years or older! FRANKELIO and LITTLE JO tick the CD box, but on present form neither could be considered.
In fact, while Mickey Hammond has his string in excellent form, his FRANKELIO (2/28) doesn’t like winning. As for LITTLE JO, we need to go back 16 races since he last won.
Both JACKHAMMER and JEWEL MAKER won two races back, and it’s that which will make today’s task more difficult. After all, they are up in the weights, and these types of handicappers are limited.
The one with the best recent form is GLOBAL SPIRIT. He was only just touched off at Ripon, and he too is a course & distance winner. However, he’s been put up another pound for that effort, and after getting the run of the race he should have won.
In our opinion, the fourth on that day is the one to take out of the race. After missing the break, TANGLED failed to get a clear run and in the circumstances, he did well to finish a close fourth.
Following that disastrous Rowan Scott is being hocked-off, and Conor Beasley will be taking over on Gemma Tutty’s 7-year-old. Suffice to say, he can only enhance the gelding’s chance.
For the record, the selection is on a 5 pounds lower mark than his last win. His last four wins were divided between Carlisle and Beverley, thus proving he’s best6 on a stiff track like this.
Finally, conditions are ideal, and being located in stall 4 gives his jockey options.
