Thursdays bet Gitano Hernando was disappointing finishing well beaten fifth in group three contest at meydan,though not given the greatest of rides after being dropped out in last place and then coming widest of all ,never really picked up inside final two furlongs most disappointing run ,after being well supported in market 4-1 into 11-4.Loss -£200 / 2.00 pts on the day.
South African horse Bold Silvano was very impressive winner for Mike de Koch who landed 4 timer on the card and is now favourite in some lists for Dubai World cup.
On too Fridays racing two flat cards at Lingfield & Wolverhampton ,going concentrate on 9 furlong claiming stakes at Wolverhampton's evening card.
9F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 WOLVERHAMPTON 6.00
FAITHFUL RULER : Back to form since being dropped in grade, winner of his last two races including easy seven lengh winner of 8F seller at Lingfield for Richard Fahey back in December ,followed up next time winning 10F claimer at Lingfield on his first start for Ron Harris beating Dream of Fortune.Looks well weighted in this claimer and should go close.
VERDICT : Majuro looks obvious danger after winning twice this winter (seller & claimer) and strictly on BHA ratings is the top rated ,though at prices looks no value at around 7-4 mark.
FAITHFUL RULER at around double the price looks the better value bet ,very consistent in this grade and had some decent form in much better races last season.
FAITHFUL RULER 6.00 WOLVERHAMPTON
