Son Of Rest a 9/1 Curragh cracker

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

Son Of Rest has a progressive profile and looks worth a wager at 9/1 in the 4.10 at the Curragh today.

The colt shape with plenty of promise in two runs as a juvenile, finishing a highly creditable 6 1/4 length fourth to subsequent dial Classic winner Churchill in the Group 1 National Stakes over 7f at this venue in the last of those.

He has gone on to win two of his three starts this seasion for Fozzy Stack and proved a revelation since being dropped back in trip.

In the last of those success over 5f at this venue, he travelled powerfully throughout before surging clear to easily land a competitive 11-runner handicap by 1 3/4 lengths under 9st 13lb.

The way in which he finsihed the race suggsted the extra furlonmg in this should not be a problem.

Son Of Rest is also joint-top rated in the line-up with the more exposed Intelligence Cross and receives a handy weight-for-age allowance from the likes of Kimbreela and Gordon Lord Byron.

He is also lightly-raced and remains open to further improvement and looks overpriced given his upwardly mobile profile.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts each-way Son Of Rest (9/1 Boylesports – BOG)
