Affaire D’Honneur looks nicely weighted on the pick of his form and worth a wager at 5/1 in the 4.10 at Market Rasen today.
Harry Whittington’s five-year-old failed to get his head in front in three starts last season but ran some really solid efforts in defeat.
They included an excellent fourth of 22 to Agrapart in the 2m Betfair Hurdle at Newbury off a mark of 132 where he stayed on from off the pace in eye-catching fashion to be nearest at the finish and beaten 13 lengths.
The form of that race has worked out well andhe backed it up with another good run when fourth of 14 to Flying Angel in the Imperial Cup at Sandown off 133.
Affaire D’Honneur then made hard work of opening his account on seasonal reappearance in a five-runner contest at Fontwell and subsequently disappointed at the same venue when a well-beaten fifth of 10.
He also ran no sort of a race when pulled-up at Haydock before returning to form last time out when third at Chepstow.
If he can buold on that then Affaire D’Honneur looks potentially chucked-in on the pick of his form off a reduced rating of 123.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts win Affaire D’Honneur (5/1 Stan James – BOG)
