Course specialist Greylami too big at 12s
Course specialist Greylami was a real eye-catcher last time out and makes plenty of appeal at 12/1 now returned to his favourite stomping ground in the 9.20 at Kempton.
Robert Mills’ six-year-old got no luck in running when finishing sixth to The Only Key at Sandown, finding himself trapped on the rails when trying to make his move from the back three from home.
In the end his jockey had to sit and suffer for daylight to appear, but when it did the leaders had flown and he stayed on late to be beaten 3 1/1 lengths without being unduly knocked about.
That run showed that he was returning to form, and he is now only 1lb higher than when getting beaten a short-head by Ottoman Empire last November.
His three runs this season have all been on the turf, but he is a course and distance winner who seems to reserve his best for this track and has only twice finished out of the frame in nine starts on the artificial surface.
He’s the type who you can be almost certain will run his race, and when things drop right for him he has a good turn of foot which always makes him a potent threat in this grade.
At his best when held up and coming off a strong pace, he looks sure to get that this evening and if getting the breaks must go close in the hands of Jim Crowley who rides the track well.
At 12/1 he looks overpriced and a great each-way play.
Recommended bet: 2pts each-way Greylami (12/1 bet365)
