Ceelo can cash-in on career low mark now upped in trip

Ceelo  is strongly fancied at 5/1 to cash-in on a career low mark now returned to the turf in the 2.25 at Yarmouth today and upped in trip.

The gelding looked sure to win plenty of races when winning a maiden at Newbury on his third start as a juvenile when trained by Richard Hannon but hass failed to get his head in front since.

However he did run well on a number of occasions last year, finishing third to Pythagorean at Leicester off a mark of 78, runner-up at Lingfield off 75 and fourth to Mambo Spirit at Salisbury over 6f off 75.

He now gets into this class 6 contest off a career-low mark of just 62, and that gives him massive claims at the weights on the pick of his form.

Now in the care of Lydia Pearce, the four-year-old has shaped nicely on his last three starts and ran better than the bare result indicates.

In the first of those over 6f in a class 5 at Kempton he raced up with the pace until being unable to quicken a furlong from home and then keeping on at the one pace to finish a 3 1/4 length sixth of 9 to Dutiful Son.

The winner is a progressive sort who has since followed up in facile fashion off a mark of 81 in a class 4 contest, and the form looks strong in the context of this contest.

The selection then showed plenty of early dash over 6f at Kempton before weakening approaching the final furlong to finsih 7th of 12 to Foie Gras, before finding the drop back to 5f at Lingfield against him last time out when getting outpaced before keeping on to finish a never nearer 5 1/4 length fifth of 9 to Dishy Guru.

The step back up to 7f this aftrnoon looks a sensible move as he ran really well to be placed over it last season off 78 and 75.

On his run behind Pythagorean in the first of those in a class 4 contest he is potentially thrown-in off 16 lower in this lower grade class 6 affair.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win  Ceelo (5/1 BetVictor, Hills – BOG)
