West To Crossgales looks worth a wager at 8/1 in the 5.00 at Southwell today.
The seven-year-old is an Irish point winner who prior to disappointing last tine out over course and distance when fifth after racing far too keenly had posted three solid efforts to make the frame for trainer Charles Pogson.
In the last of those at Fakenham he failed by only a head to overhaul Fifty Shades off a mark of 86.
The winner, to whom he was conceding 3lb, went on to bolt up next time up by seven lengths off 91 before finishing third off 98.
That gives the for a strong looks in relation to this and West Cross Gales is able to race in it off wnhat looks a workable mark of 88 judged on that effort.
If settling better he looks weighted to run a big race and has every chance of opening his account under rules in a race where a case can’t be made for many.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way West To Crossgales (8/1 bet365, BetVictor, Paddy Power – BOG)
