Beidh Tine Anseo looks nicely treated on his chasing debut in the 2.30 at Kelso and makes plenty of appeal at 11/2 to make it a winning one.
Lucinda Russell’s gelding was a progressive sort last year, winning three times and running well in several competitive contests.
He is now pitched straight into handicap company on his first try over the larger obstacles off a mark of 114 and that is 8lb lower than when registering his last success at Cartmel back in 2010 off an official rating of 122.
The gelding went on to finish a solid fourth of 11 to Astracad in a decent race at Cheltenham off the same mark, and although he has not been at his best this season he has run some solid races.
The first of those runs came at Kelso where he finished a highly encouraging second to Surprise Vendor on soft ground, and next time up he held every chance before weakening late to finish third to Dontpaytheferryman.
He then narrowly failed to overhaul that rival at Musselburgh, before finishing a creditable fourth to Red Merlin last time up at Newcastle.
That was follwed by a fast finishing third to Surprise Vendor at this track when given too much to do, and his latest effort when well beaten at Perth came on ground which was far too soft.
He is at his best on quick ground, and if he does take to the fences then there is little doubt that he is weighted to take the beating in the hnads of the talented Campbell Gillies.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Beidh Tine Anseo (11/2 Paddy Power – BOG)
