Ebony a solid bet at Bangor

The unexposed Ebony River looks potentially well handicapped in the 2.40 at Bangor and is of major interest at 3/1.

The gelding shaped with plenty of promise last season behind the likes of Recession Proof and Pure Faith, and has really caught the eye in two starts for Jenny Candlish.

Both those runs came last month, and in the first at Hexham he made smooth headway two from home after being held up to throw down a challenge at the last before being unable to find any extra close home and being beaten just under two lengths by Aland Islands.

It was a highly promising effort after nearly a year off the track, and he followed it up with another solid effort when fourth to Trafalgar at Uttoxeter.

He would have gone a lot closer that day had he not made mistakes late on in the contest and there is no doubt in my mind that he has the potential to win races of this nature off his current mark of 106.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 5pts win Ebony River (3/1 generally available – use BOG firms)
