Larkrise the Star attraction at headquarters

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

Larkrise Star has her ideal conditions in the 7.15 at Newmarket and makes plenty of appeal at 15/2.

Dean Ivory’s charge has caught the eye in her last three starts and has become well-treated again off a mark of 63.

She first went into my notebook when getting no luck in-running whatsoever at Windsor and running far better than her 13 1/4 length sixth of 14 to Livia’s Dream suggests.

The mare travelled powerfully throughout and was still on the bridle when repeatedly finding her way blocked two from home.

Her rider Shane Kelly had to sit and suffer as every gap he went for closed, and he was forced to stand up in the irons and admit defeat when getting badly hampered a furlong out.

In the end she was allowed to come home in her own time and not knocked about whatsoever, and she then ran really well next time up at the same track when a close up fourth ti Incendiary on ground that was arguably too soft.

The five-year-old was then given far too much to do last time out when a never nearer fifth of 15 to Ambala, a run for which she has been dropped a 1lb.

She is now 2lb lower than when she was last successful on the all-weather at Kempton last September, and just 3lb higher than when winning on the turf prior to that at Yarmouth where she comfortably accounted for for Jodawes by 2 lengths.

To me she is a winner waiting to happen, and now that she has her favoured quick going this looks a great chance for her to score an overdue success.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts win Larkrise star (15/2 Coral)
