Christmas In April weighted to collect on handicap debut

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Christmas In April is strongly fancied to cash-in on what looks a lenient mark to make a winning handicap debut in the 2.25 at Market Rasen today.

Nicky Henderson’s gelding made a winning debut at this venue when ;landing a bumper by 7 lengths.

He went on to shape with plenty of promise in three spins over hurdles, inclding when fourth of 13 to Joe Farrell in a dcenet contest at Ffos Las which has thrown-up plenty of subsequent winners.

Joe Farrell is now rated 135 and the runner-up Keeper Hill is rated 138.

Christmas In April also ran well when third to the very smart 145-rated William Henry at Newbury and was far from disgraced when fifth of 15 to So Celebre at Huntingdon.

He looks the type that should have plenty more to offer now going down the handicap route and an opening mark of 114 could well underestimate his ability.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Christmas In April (7/2 Coral, Ladbrokes, William Hill – BOG)
