Rosslyn can be king of the Castle

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

Rosslyn Castle looked a colt with a huge future when scoring last time out and at 7/1 makes plenty of appeal in the finale at Chester (4.45).

Roger Charlton’s son of Selkirk was a real eye-catcher on his sole start as a juvenile when finishing a fast finishing fourth of 11 to Open Water.

He looked clueless as to what was required and after a slow start ran very green at the rear of the field before the penny finally dropped.

In the end he was gaining hand over first at the line under tender handling, and at the line was beaten just 1 3/4 lengths.

The colt confirmed the promise he showed there on his seasonal reappearance in a 1m 2f Windsor maiden last month where he powered clear to beat the well regarded Ace Of Valhalla by just under four lengths.

He looked better and better the further he went, and the way he stretched clear with the minimum of fuss suggested that he had tons more to offer.

The extra two furlongs he tackles today should hold no fears, and to me he looks a colt who has a big future and is definitely one to keep on the right side.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts each-way Rosslyn Castle (7/1 BetVictor, Ladbrokes – BOG)
