Kinyras has become dangerously well handicapped and looks worth a punt at 16/1 to land the 4.20 at Ripon for the in-form Mick Easterby.
The gelding was a progressive sort last year when trained by Sir Michael Stoute, winning a maiden at Windsor in good style before going on to land a competitive class 3 handicap at Goodwood off a mark of 82.
The son of Peintre Celebre was sent off 4/1 favourite that day and battled on gamely to beat Aldwick Bay by a short-head over 1m 3f.
He then rounded his season off with a fair third to Caravan Rolls On at Ascot in a class 2 handicap off a mark of 88 before joining the Easterby outfit.
It’s fair to say that his first two starts were extremely disappointing, but he then showed far more when third to Just Lille in a claimer at Beverley.
The four-year-old kept on quite well to be beaten just over 5 lengths having made headway to lead at the two pole, and it was a run which suggested all was not lost.
He didn’t back up that run when pitched back into handicap company at York last time out, but that was a class 2 1m 4f contest and he is now quickly dropping down to class 4 company.
That gives him a chance of being competitive again, especially as he is now dropped back to a more suitable trip of 1m 2f off a reduced mark of just 75.
If he put his best foot forward he is more than capable of taking this, and his shrewd yard have certainly got him back on a winnable mark from which he is too big to ignore at the odds on offer..
Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Kinyras (16/1 bet365, BetVictor – BOG)
