2K to 10k Betting Challenge (Bet No 3) (Thu 25th Jan )

The 2K to 10K challenge continues on Thursday.

January has been slow start for challenge ,though January & February can often be quiet months .

The bankroll now stands at £1886,
stakes drop slightly to £75.00 ,after the last selection Kasbah finished dead heat third at Lingfield @ 6-1 .

Moving on to Thursday we have interesting fillies & mares contest on the turf at Meydan .8 runners declared for the 1 mile (group two ) Cape Verdi at 4.50 .The four main contenders look to be Promising Run , Opal Tiara, Rehana & Absolute Blast  .

PROMISING RUN : Five-year-old bay mare ,winning 4 out 14 on turf  .Last victory came in (group two) 9f Al Rashidiya at Meydan in January 2017.Finished 3rd of nine in 1 mile listed race at Lingfield in November .Solid claims on last seasons Meydan form,though has been below par on recent starts.

OPAL TIARA : Five-year-old bay mare ,winning 5 out 25 .Had some useful form at Meydan last season ,including finishing close second in this race last year .Also won the 9f (group two)  Balanchine Stakes at Meydan in February.Made promising reapperance in 9f (group three ) Singspiel Stakes,finishing good fourth of 15 behind Benbati earlier this month .Looks strong contender .

REHANA : Four-year-old Irish bay filly ,winning 2 out 10 .Had some decent form last season ,including winning the 7f (group three ) Canford Cliffs Stakes at Naas in May .Made encourging reappearance in decent 7f handicap at Meydan two weeks ago ,finishing fourth of 16 behind D'bai ,off mark 104 .Should be thereabouts ,though unproven over this longer trip.

ABSOLUTE BLAST : Six-year-old bay mare ,winning 4 out 19 (0 out 8 on turf ) Consistent sort ,had some decent placed form on turf last season , including finishing second in group three Princess Elizabeth stakes at Epsom in June .Also finished fair third in group one Premio Lydia Tesio in Italy in October .Each-way claims ,though best form on poly track .

VERDICT : Promising Run will have her supporters,having shown all her best form here at Meydan ,though hasn't looked at her best on recent starts,including when beaten in listed company on her last two starts.Odds around 15-8 look no value,returning to group two company .

OPAL TIARA should go well on pick last seasons form ,including when only beaten half-lengh behind Very Special in this race last year. Should be spot on after finishing good fourth of 15  behind the useful Benbati in Singspiel Stakes on seasonal reappearance.Odds 7-2 look fair each-way value,with the dead eight runners.

£37.50 EACH-WAY @ 7-2 PADDY POWER*
(FOURTH SP 3-1 LOSS £75.00 ) 

(Betting bankroll running total £1811 stakes drop to £72.00 )
