Just the one flat card on Monday on the turf at Redcar with claiming race at 4.45 over 6 furlongs .Nine runners declared for low grade claimer ,though this does look quite interesting betting race.
4.45 REDCAR 6F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 :
Nine runners go to post for 6F claimer on fast ground at Redcar .There looks three main contenders Tallahasse , The Dancing Lord & Come On Dave .
TALLAHASSE :Useful 2 year old filly winning her first two starts at Beverley & Haydock .Highly tried last season in group and listed company ,though did look bit disappointing on her last two starts in handicap company .Takes big drop in class into claiming company for first time .
THE DANCING LORD : Consistent sort ,finished second on his last two starts on poly track over 6 furlongs in claiming and seller ,also had some fair form on turf last season winning two races over 5 furlongs at Folkestone & Goodwood .
COME ON DAVE : Finished good second in 5F maiden at Catterick behind the fairly useful Free Zone back in August ,though hasn't repeated that form since and looked bit disappointing on his last two starts in maiden company and this longer trip has to be concern .
VERDICT : Tallahasse is well clear on official handicap ratings and this represents big drop in class ,though there has to be question mark about how much ability she retains and this will be her first run for over 8 months .Odds around 2-1 make no appeal with those doubts.
Come On Dave has to prove he can stay this longer trip and will need to settle lot better than on his last two starts ,though may do better returning to the turf and can't be ruled out dropping into claiming company for first time.
THE DANCING LORD has bit to find on official handicap ratings,though is very consistent in this grade and has been in good form this winter finishing second three times .Will also be suited returning to the turf having won twice on the turf last season.Odds around 4-1 look very fair value. .
