Some interesting Open race action at Henlow tonight (live on RPGTV, Sky 212) and there three dogs that standout from a punting perspective.
In 7.30, Trap 3 Fermoy Rory looks a good bet at 2/1 now dropped in class.
He finished fourth behind the very useful Underground Paul in an Open at Hove after being slowly away and baulked, and the winner had previously come third in the Laurels at Belle Vue behind Mileheight Alba.
The son of Black Shaw then ran well in another decent Open at Hove last time out when beaten just 2 3/4 lengths by Ballymac Bocko, again after being tardily away and not getting the best of runs, and the winner is a strong 5/4 shot for a decent Open race later on in the card.
This is far easier than both those contests, and it will be disappointing if he doesn’t take advantage and land the spoils.
In the 8.15 the aforementioned Ballymac Bocko looks to have the perfect make-up as the sole seed in Trap 6, and rates a solid bet at 5/4.
The son of Ninja Jamie is very lightly raced and came good at the fourth time of asking when winning impressively at Hove last time out.
He is a strong sort who looks to have plenty more to offer, and with his main market rival Stress Force better when running from traps 3 or 4 rather than 5 this looks his for the taking if turning in a handy pitch.
In the final race of the night at 9.15pm, Trap 3 Unlikely Ash looks cracking value at the 4/1 on offer with bet365.
The son of Scolari Me Daddy has been mixing it in A2 and Open race company of late but the grader has finally relented and given him a chnace in A3 company.
The last time he ran in the grade, from trap 3, he pinnged out and made all to bolt up by 4 lengths and he has enough pace to do the same in this.
To me he should be no bigger than 3/1 at best, so the 4s on offer looks huge and should be snapped up.
