Sohcahtoa a knockout punt

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

Sohcahtoa was a real eye-catcher last time out and makes plenty of appeal at 4/1 to score an overdue success in the 3.55 at Doncaster.

The gelding has not won since scoring twice as a juvenile back in 2008, but he has run some really solid races and is now running off a mark of just 72 having been rated as high as 100 in the past.

He showed that he could ready to take advantage when an unlucky in running fourth of 14 to Chilly Filly at Catterick two weeks ago.

The six-year-old, who was making his debut for the shrewd David Barron outfit, was denied a clear run when making good headway from the rear and finished full of running.

He was only beaten 3 1/2 lengths and had he been granted a clear passage I think he may well have prevailed in the 1m 4f contest.

That makes him look like a winner without a penalty given that he is running from the same mark, and today’s 2mile trip is much more up his street.

He finished runner-up three times over today’s distance when trained by Robert Mills, and another plus is that he has proven form in the soft.

Everything looks in place for a huge run, and this looks a glorious opportunity for him to belatedly get back into the winners’ enclosure.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Sohcahtoa (4/1 generally available – use BOG firms)
