Not great week so far with two losing bets .Not sure why but the turf bets are not performing up to standard at the moment .With only one winner from 7 bets this season( 14.28%) . That compares with 10 out 26 on All Weather (38.46%)
Moving on to Saturday we have 1 mile 0-75 classified claimer for 3 and 4 year olds at Salisbury's evening meeting .Hopefully we can finish the week with winner on the turf.
6.40 SALISBURY 1 MILE 0-75 CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 5
10 runners declared for (0-75) 1 mile claimer on the turf at Salisbury .This looks quite competitive claimer with four main contenders .Benzanno,Mayo Lad,Purple N Gold , Aciano .
BENZANNO :Big improver since being fitted with hood ,winning 9 furlong handicap at Epsom last time in good style.Also finished good second at Epsom on his previous start on soft ground .Should go well if handling this faster ground.
MAYO LAD : Consistent sort ,hasn't finished outside the first three on his last 6 starts .Won 6 furlong handicap at Wolverhampton back in April .
PURPLE N GOLD :Won 9 furlong seller at Yarmouth earlier last month in good style ,though was very disappointing last time in claimer at Newmarket beaten 20 lenghs .Well treated at the weights.
ACIANO : Won 9 furlong seller at Wolverhampton earlier this month ,and finished fair second in simular race at Lingfield last time .Won on the turf last season at Doncaster and should be thereabouts.
VERDICT : Mayo Lad is very consistent performer and should go well here ,though has been beaten favorite on his last three starts and doesn't look the easiest horse to win with .Odds around 9-4 make little appeal .
Purple N Gold is best in at the weights ,though was very disappointing last time in claimer and will need to bounce back .
BENZANNO looks improved performer after putting in two solid runs in handicap company at Epsom recently .Has to prove he can handle this faster ground ,though looks to have the strongest form .odds around 7-2 look fair value.
