Dancer fancied to waltz home

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

Darceys Dancer has been given a massive chance by the handicapper and is of major interest at 8/1 in the 6.50 at Worcester.

Evan Williams’ charge was a decent sort in Ireland, where he scored three times and was placed behind the likes of Loosen My Load and Torpichen.

He ran a blinder for his current yard when third behind Anquetta in a Grade 1 listed handicap at Ascot last October off a mark of 135 and although he has failed to trouble the judge since then he is now 18lb lower in the weights.

That gives him an outstanding chance from a handicapping perspective, and he really caught the eye last time out when staying on late to finish fourth of 7 to Hellfire Club at Newbury.

Although beaten 32 lengths the nine-year-old was never put into the race at any stage after a mistake at the first and stayed on well on the flat under hands and heels with plenty of running left in him.

That run came over 2m 1f and the step up in trip to 2m 4f this afternoon looks sure to suit.

With Paul Moloney in the saddle he looks potentially chucked-in at the foot of the weights, and this represents a glorious chance from him to open his account in this country.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Darceys Dancer (8/1 Hills – BOG)
