Coopers can be the punters Friend at Mussleburgh

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

Coopers Friedn shaped well last time out and makes plenty of appeal at 4/1 in the 2.25 at Mussleburgh today.

Michael Smith’s eight-year-old travelled well until weakening between the last two fences to finish a 13 3/4 length third to Red Giant over 2m 5f at Kelso.

It was a big step back in the right direction and he has since been dropped a further 3lb to a mark of 97.

That is 15lb lower than when last successful over 2m 1f at Sedgefield 15 months ago and gives him major claims at the weights.

The drop back to 2m also looks in his favour and if building on his latest effort Coopers friend looks handicapped to get back on the scoresheet.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts win Coopers Friend (4/1 generally available – use BOG firms)
