NIGHTLINE has not been seen since unseating at Towcester in December but has gone well after a break before, including when second by a head at Bangor in October on his first run for six months and first outing for the Charlie Longdson yard.
He’s a qualifier on a system regarding his sire, Midnight Legend. Had we backed all his progeny over fences on good to soft or faster going from February to April, we would have found 49 winners from 287 bets (18% strike-rate) and made a profit of £825.70 to £10 level stakes at SP (+£1385.30 at Betfair SP) and that was before Monday’s sole qualifier Back By Midnight scored at Taunton at odds of 9-1.
Hopefully, Nightline can add to these gains when he contests the Racing UK Profits Returned To Racing Handicap Chase at Wetherby on Tuesday (4.00).
Nightline – Wetherby 4.00 (1pt win, 8-1 Bet365, 7-1 generally)
