AMAZING ONE did well to run fourth of 14 from stall ten in a 6f Dundalk handicap last time (first three drawn in stalls five, two and seven) and it was good to see the badly-berthed seventh run well next time. He remains a maiden after 11 starts but is worth an interest in division two of the 7f Dundalk Stadium – Light Up Your Night Apprentice Handicap (7.00), a trip he stayed well enough when a close-up third over trip and track last month.
David Elsworth uses first-time blinkers sparingly on his young horses, fitting this headgear to juveniles or three-year-olds on only 35 occasions since the start of 2007. Seven of the qualifiers won (20% strike-rate) for a huge profit of £78.25 to a £1 level stake at SP (+£139.54 at Betfair SP). In handicaps only, six of the 19 qualifiers scored (31.6%) suggesting that CERN (stall four of 14) could take a step forward in the 1m 32Red On The App Store Nursery Handicap at Kempton (6.45). She didn’t show much over 7f here on her nursery debut but will be suited by the return to a longer trip and, in a race largely devoid of early pace, perhaps Hayley Turner will elect to make the running.
Amazing One – Dundalk 7.00 (1pt win, 8-1 Bet365, William Hill)
Cern – Kempton 6.45 (0.5pts each-way, 33-1 Betfair, Paddy Power, 25-1 Ladbrokes, Coral, all paying four places, one-fifth the odds if you bet online)
