Prime Venture has been running well of late and looks worth a wager at 11/2 in the 2.00 at Haydock today now steppd up in trip.
Evan Williams’s six-year-old has a progressive profile and comes into the race on the back of two fine efforts in competitive handicaps.
After finishing fourth of 16 to Air Force One at Ascot, Prime Venture ran a cracker when a staying on 1 1/4 length second of 16 to Minella Awards over 2m 4f at Sandown.
Minella Awards has since gone on to folow-up in good style at the Punchestown Festival and that gives the form a solid look and makes a 4lb rise in the weights for Prime Venture look more than fair.
The way in which the selection finished off at Sandown also suggests that he should be suited by the extra two furlongs in this and another plus is that the yard is in good form at present.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Prime Venture (11/2 Paddy Power – BOG)
