Our man O’Malley struck with 12/1 winner (9/1 SP) Maid In India on Saturday and returns to betting action on Monday, curiously, with three interesting picks over the jumps at Stratford...
The Venetia Williams trained favourite, Khairagash, looks well ahead of the assessor on his Ffos Las win last time out, but with buckets of rain coming down everywhere it could take the market leader out of his comfort zone. I am hopeful that won’t be the case for Hurricane Rita, who also arrives in winning form having dotted up by eight lengths in a good time at Southwell last week. Conor Dore’s 9yo has done much of her recent running on good ground, but she is a dual winner on heavy and she looks very dangerous here under a 7lb penalty.
Lookforarainbow has been steadily progressing through all four starts so far in 2019, recording RPRs of 104, 106, 109, & 11. The 6yo caught the eye at Bangor last time out when finishing a close-up fourth, looking as though he had a bit left in the locker under a tender enough ride from Aidan Coleman. He has experience on soft ground and indeed over further, so this step up to the extended 2m2f trip, along with the promise of rain-softened ground, should see the Sarah Hollinshead runner go very well.
King Muro returned from a six week break to run an encouraging race at Kempton last month, where he jumped and travelled well, and put in good late work to get up for third. The form of that race has worked out pretty well since, with the winner and runner-up both running with credit in the next starts and the fourth, Ravenous, finishing second in a flat handicap at the Chester May meeting. The 7th home at Kempton, Cabernet D’Alene, improved significantly to finish a much better 4th at Newton Abbot next time up, when outrunning odds of 33/1. King Muro handles cut in the ground, he’s been dropped a pound in the weights since Kempton and looks too big for an each-way punt at morning odds.
