Nice to come back with winner on Thursday with TALENTI winning at 3-1 for (£180/ 1.80 PTS PROFIT)
Very strange betting patterns in the race Dunaskin was subject to quite big gamble 12-1 into 4-1 ,which was very puzzling as he appeared to have very little chance at these weights.
TALENTI was solid in the market all day at 3-1,that was until about 15 minutes before the race when he started too drift touching as big as 6-1 on betfair ,then all of sudden was backed heavily from 6-1 into 11-4 just before the off.
In the race itself Dunaskin set very strong pace and was soon well clear though was in trouble 2 furlongs out and soon beaten .TALENTI had tracked the leaders in third, till getting outpaced 3 furlongs out and looked in real trouble with 2 furlongs to go ,though this horse really stays well,and picked up inside final furlong, and come with storming run on outside and got up near the line to win by neck ,very exciting race, especially when you have backed the winner.
On too Fridays racing we have three flat cards York , Musselburgh & Wolverhampton ,we go too Scotland for days only bet at Musselburgh for 5 Furlong claiming stakes.
5 FURLONG CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 5 MUSSELBURGH 4.40
NORTHERN BOLT :Consistent sort ,with good record in claimers 121,won 5f claimer two starts ago at Newcastle on heavy ground beating Captain Royale by 1.5 lenghs ,that form has since been boosted with Captain Royale winning handicap by 5 lenghs at Ayr.Ran fair 6th of 16 last time in handicap at Redcar only beaten 3 lenghs .Should go well back into class 6 claimer.
DANGER:SONNY RED looks big danger if reproducing his 2ND of 25 off mark 89 in AYR Silver cup in class 2 handicap,and takes massive drop in class here into class 6 claimer for first time,though is very inconsistent and never seems to run two races the same,and was very disappointing last time at Haydock in class 2 handicap finishing 14th of 16.
VERDICT :.SONNY RED has to be big danger in this grade, though looks plenty short enough at around 6-4 for horse so inconsistent. At the prices NORTHERN BOLT looks the value each/way bet with such good record in claiming races.Any prices around 6-1 mark would be good value
