Essaka has been given a chance by the handicapper and looks worth an each-way wager at 16/1 in the 5.00 at Bath Roday.
Tony Carroll’s charge was last successful at Brighton back in October when scoring by a hyead in this grade off a mark of 58.
He is now able to race off 54 and having been placed off 67 in the past it makes well-treated on the pick of his form.
Essaka also comes into the race having posted an improved effort last time out over course and distance when staying on from off the pace to finish a never nearer 4 1/2 length fifth of 12 to Babyfact.
If building on that he should be very competitive in this off his current rating and another plus is that he handles cut in the ground.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Essaka (16/1 Ladbrokes – BOG)
