On Friday we have 1 mile 2 furlong 0-75 classified claiming stakes at Redcar .
4.35 REDCAR 1 MILE 2 FURLONG 0-75 CLASSIFIED CLAIMING STAKES:
9 runners go to post for 1 mile 2 furlong claiming stakes on ground described as good ,though showers are forcast through the day .This looks competitive claimer with plenty of out form horses .The three main contenders look to be Jack Dawkins , Scottish Boogie & Elizabeth Coffee
JACK DAWKINS : Useful performer for Henry Cecil in the past ,though not the force of old .Been running well on the fibresand at Southwell this year winning twice ,including winning 11 furlong claimer in April .Has plenty turf form in past and should go well in this claimer.
ELIZABETH COFFEE : Won three races in Ireland last season for M.Halford.Finished fair third in 10 furlong handicap at Chester in May for Ian Williams .Takes drop in class here into claiming company for first time .
SCOTTISH BOOGIE : Won four times for Sylvester Kirk 2009/10 ,though didn't show great deal for Charles Brynes in Ireland .Rejoined Syvester Kirk stable in May ,though has shown very little on his last two starts ,including in claiming company .
VERDICT: Elizabeth Coffee should go well here after winning three times in Ireland last year and would be difficult to beat if she can reproduce her Chester form in this claimer .However she did run poorly last time and wouldn't want ground to get much softer .
At the prices JACK DAWKINS looks the value bet here after running three solid races at Southwell this year .Has won three times on turf and seems to go well in this grade.Odds around 9-2 look fair each-way value .
