On Monday we are back on the turf at Beverley with 5 furlong 2 year old claimer on ground described as good/firm .
6.30 BEVERLEY 5 FURLONG 2 YEAR OLD CLAIMING STAKES:
9 runners declared for 2 year old claimer over 5 furlongs at Beverley .This doesn't look the strongest claimer with Findog & Red Highlites looking the two main contenders .
FINDOG :Finished promising third on debut in 5 furlong maiden at Ripon ealier last month .That was fair effort after being slowly away and swerving at the start ,ran on strongly in closing stages .Should go well dropping into claiming company.
RED HIGHLITES : Ran good second in 5 furlong maiden at Catterick earlier this month showing plenty speed.Looked unsuited by heavy ground last time when finishing third in 5 furlong maiden at Hamilton .Should be suited by this faster ground .
VERDICT : Findog should improve for his debut third at Ripon and looks sure to go well in this weak looking claimer ,though there has to be big concern about the form of the Ollie Pears stable, having only had one winner since April (1 from 83 ) and has yet to train 2 year old winner this season (0 from 21 ) Odds around 6-4 don't look great value with the stable out form.
RED HIGHLITES looks solid here after finishing placed on his last two starts ,showing plenty speed on both starts .This faster ground should also suit better after getting bogged down in mud last time at Hamilton .Odds around 3-1 look fair value in this weak looking claimer .
