5/1 Counsel can be Wetherby King

The front running King’s Counsel is likely to take some pegging in the 3.25 at Wetherby and rates the day’s best bet on the card at 5/1.

David O’Meara’s charge has shown improved form on the flat this season, and carried on that progression when an excellent runner-up on his seasonal reappearance over hurdles at Market Rasen just over two weeks ago.

He attempted to make all that day in a really competitive contest and showed tremendous battling qualities when going down by just a length to Royale’s Charter.

The handicapper has been slightly harsh in putting him up 8lb for that effort to a mark of 118 but he comes her at the top of his game and the track will certainly suit his trailblazing tactics.

Indeed, under the controversial new whip rules he could be very hard to catch if able to get his own way up front and with conditions clearly in his favour he looks the one they all have to beat.
