MIDNIGHT RUN - (1.35 Fairyhouse, 1pt each-way - 12/1 bet365)

I am not entirely sure why MIDNIGHT RUN is such a big price under Racheal Blackmore, given he only has two lengths to find from his meeting with Gabynako here on seasonal reappearance when a mistake at the last cost him finishing much closer.

He was conceding race fitness on that occasion also, so he should sharpen up for the run. He has some strong chase form from last term, and his seasonal reappearance was full of promise. He should put in an improved run today, and on the balance of his form, his double-figure prices looks a bit crazy?

THE COB - (2.20 Carlisle, 1pt each-way - 9/1 WIll Hills)

A chance is taken on THE COB, who was well supported at Newbury before being pulled out due to the going and should find conditions here more to his liking. He was fast on the upgrade last season before a poor run in the Albert Bartlett when he had little chance from the rear of the field in a slowly run race.

He looks fairly treated under Luca Morgan, who claims five, and this is far easier than some of his assignments last term. He has a good record fresh with form figures of 1232, and nothing looks thrown in here off of their handicap marks, including the favourite who has to burden a 13lbs rise from his latest victory in a poor race. He looks a good each-way punt here.

DOWNTOWN GETAWAY - (2.50 Carlsile 1pt win - 9/1 bet365)

Morning Spirit looks the one to beat here, but it may pay to chance DOWNTOWN GETAWAY, who shaped with plenty of promise at Sedgefield behind a prolific winner before folding tamely on the turn into the home straight. That was his first start for 252 days and first for the yard, but it's the first time tongue-tie that interests me the most.

It was well documented that he had breathing issues earlier in his career, and if this tongue-tie first time works well, then he is incredibly well-handicapped off this mark of 126 for a trainer that has a 29% strike rate at Carlise and a 33% strike rate here over fences. It's worth taking a win only chance on him.
