Capriska looks at the right end of the handicap and is of serious interest at 6/1 now returned to the polytrack in the 4.40 at Wolverhampton today.
Willie Musson’s filly hinted that she had ability in three maiden runs last autumn at up to 7f, and particularly caught the eye on her final start over 6f at this track where she was soon outpaced before keeping on under hands and heels to finish a never nearer 6 1/4 length 6th of 8 to Forest Edge.
The daughter of Bahri went into my notebook then as one to keep an eye on over a longer trip and she duly put in a much improved performance on her seasonal reappearance 1m 2f at Redcar off a mark of 51.
She found herself short of room and shuffled back into the pack after two furlongs before making stealthy headway three from home to lead at the furlong marker until being unable to find any extra close home.
In the end she was only beaten 1 3/4 lengths into third by Lady Kashaan, and although she could manage to finish 5th of 16 to The Quarterback next time up at Bath nothing went right for her in the race and she made have found the 1m 4f trip a bit too far.
Connections are now dropping her back to 1m 1f, and I think that she is better than her current mark of 52 and this a a gilt edged opportunity for her to break her duck,
Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Capriska (6/1 bet365 – BOG)
