Acknowledgement a Hexham hottie

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

Acknowledgement is a very interesting contender in the 4.30 at Hexham looks worth a punt at 8/1 to make a winning comeback after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The 10-year-old has not been seen in action over the jumps for 841 days but looks potentially well treated off 87 if retaining the ability he showed when landing a gamble for Ian Williams at Bangor back in 2009.

He slammed the opposition that day to win easily by 17 lengths off a mark of 77 and went on to run a solid fourth of 11 to Tail Of The Bank in a class 3 handicap at Newbury off 99.

The gelding then failed to sparkle in two spins on the level, and has not been seen since December 2010.

However he now returns to the fray in a what looks a very winnable class 5 contest if his new handler has got him ready to go at the first time of asking.

The ground will certainly not be an issue as his win at Bangor came in the mud, and it may well be that first time up is the time to catch him given his fragile nature.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts win Acknowledgement (8/1 bet365, Paddy Power – BOG)
