Course specialst Shadowtime too big at 16s

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

Course specialist Shadowtime returns to action on a good mark in the 5.30 at Beverley and looks overpriced at 16/1.

Tracy Waggott’s gelding has registered all five of his career wins at the track, with the last of those coming over today’s distance last July off a mark of 72.

He gets into this off exactly the same rating, and given that his two previous wins came off 71 and 77 is certainly handicapped to go in again.

The six-year-old has also gone well fresh in the past, so there is every reason to believe he can be competitive first time up.

The only slight concern is that his best performances have come on quick ground, but he has run well on today’s good-to-soft.

The rare booking of Robert Winston also catches the eye as he has a 25% strike rate when teaming up with the stables runners.

So there are more pluses than negatives to suggest he could put up a really bold showing, and at the odds on offer he looks worth an each-way punt in a wide open affair.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Shadowtime (16/1 bet365, BetVictor, Hills – BOG)
