Tiger Reigns has slipped to a very dangerous mark and looks good value at 17/2 in the 2.55 at Ripon.
Michael Dods’ charge has not won since landing a mile handicap at Ayr back in September 2010, but that win came off a mark of 97 and he now runs off just 88.
The gelding showed he was no back number when running some solid races last season, most notably when a 3/4 length second to Club Oceanic off 95 in a decent handicap at Newmarket.
He now runs off just 88, and that makes him look very well treated if he can build on his recent comeback run on the level at York last month.
Although he finished a well beaten 10th of 12 to Anderiego (won again since) that day he ran better than his finishing position suggests and was entitled to need the run.
The six-year-old is sure to strip much fitter this afternoon, and it looks as is his handler has had this target in mind for him for some time.
Another plus is that he is versatile as regards the ground, and has also won over course and distance.
I had him priced up at around the 13/2 mark, so at 2pts bigger with BetVictor he looks overpriced and makes plenty of each-way appeal.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Tiger Reigns (17/2 BetVictor – BOG)
