Ruth Carr has a good record in Class 7 handicaps on the all-weather (three winners and a further five in the frame from 13 runners) and I bet SKITO SOLDIER on the strength of those stats when he ran in a 1m contest at Newcastle on 1 November.
Backed from 50-1 into 14s, he made the running and traded odds-on, only to be swamped at the business end, going down by six lengths. He also finished weakly in Class 6 company over the same trip and trip next time but could be suited by the drop to 7f in division one of the Follow Tipster Templegate At SunRacing Handicap at the same venue this evening (6.15). With little in the way of headwind forecast tonight, his prominent style won’t be at such a disadvantage.
Stablemate MAKEOFITWHATYOUWILL finished just ahead of Skito Soldier when a 33-1 fifth in that 1m Class 7 Newcastle handicap on 1 November and followed that with a 66-1 second over 7f at the same venue. That run was especially encouraging as he did best of the hold-up horses on a day the following wind made it easier than usual for pacesetters to prevail. He looks worth an interest in division two(6.45).
Skito Soldier – Newcastle 6.15 (1pt each-way, 16-1 Betfair, Paddy Power (both four places)
Makeofitwhatyouwill – Newcastle 6.45 (1pt each-way, 9-1 Betfair, Paddy Power)
