Since running green on his racecourse debut GOOD EFFORT (stall 1 of 9) has form figures on straight tracks of 4312 (1-4), with the latest defeat – a four and a half-length 16-1 runner-up effort in Listed company at Newbury - excusable as he hit the front plenty soon enough into the strong headwind. He can be backed in the 7f Class 2 Wreake Handicap at Leicester (3.05) where he’s well drawn towards the centre of the track.
Martyn Meade has only used first-time blinkers on 14 of his runners but six of them won (43% strike-rate), including three of the last six. Backing them blind would have yielded a profit of £27.00 to a £1 level stake and ENDLESSLY (stall 14 of 15) , the latest qualifier, is worth chancing in division one of the 1m2f Stewards Handicap (5.10) despite his wide draw.
Good Effort – Leicester 3.05 (2pts win, 13-2 Skybet, Paddy Power)
Endlessly - Leicester 5.10 (1pt win, 10-1 generally)
