All pricing correct as of 8:48am, 11th February, shortest priced runner, first.
(1) (6:15pm Chelmsford) ZAIN SARINDA was 9/2, now 15/8
Built upon a decent debut at Kempton (7f, a/w) back in November, when fourth of fourteen, to take a maiden win at Wolverhampton (1m 1f, a/w) twenty-five days ago, when 1.25 lengths ahead of Base Note in a maiden stakes. He looked to have a little more under the bonnet that day and can certainly go on to make it a double today, with some strong market backing, only encouraging that idea.
(2) (4:05pm Kempton) SMARTY WILD was 3/1, now 9/4
Five career wins so far, although its been over a year, since the last one, when taking the spoils here at Kempton (2m 4f, good to soft) in January 2021. Philip Hobbs’s runner has placed four times in the subsequent six starts, since then, including a second over C&D last month, when 2 lengths behind Caribean Boy. Narrow favourite, ahead of Mellow Ben and Flegmatik but should have enough to take the spoils here,
(3) (4:15pm Bangor) MONTE IGUELDO was 5/1, now 5/2
Placed over hurdles in France, before making the switch to the U.K. under Oliver Greenall’s guidance. Has not quite his the same heights as that run across the Channel, with successive fifth placed finishes, including the latest at Ayr (2m 3f, good to soft), when 20 lengths adrift of the winner. Arguably better than those results suggest and the drop back to 2m is likely to favour his hopes here. Backed in and is capable of overhauling favourite, Jungle Jack.
(4) (3:30pm Kempton) CONCEROE was 17/2, now 7/2
Useful Ben Case runner, who picked up a second career victory at Fakenham (2m 4f, good to soft) in his penultimate start, when half a length clear of Commodore Miller. He didn’t look to appreciate the step up to 3m in his latest, when fifth of seven at Wetherby and some 18 lengths behind on handicap debut, so the drop back to 2m 5f is seen as very favourable. Plenty of backing this overnight and this morning encourages the outright in this competitive contest.
(5) (3:05pm Bangor) BELLE DE MANECH was 7/1, now 9/2
Picked up a third career win on Boxing Day, when easing to a 14 length win at Wincanton (2m 4f, good to soft), ahead of Precious Eleanor. She may have found the drop back to 1m 7f, a little too much in her penultimate start, when fourth of seven, again at Wincanton, before arguably finding the pace in a Class 2 contest at Lingfield,a little too much. Cheekpieces are fitted today and a return to more regular Class 3 surroundings should encourage a better run, with each-way claims looking the more viable option.
