Ceelo value at 10s to cash-in on career low mark

Ceelo has become dangerously well-handicapped and looks worth a wager at 10/1 to take advntage in the 3.25 at Lingfield todat now dropped in trip.

The gelding looked sure to win plnety 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.

Howver he did run well on a number of occasions last year, finishing third to Pythagorean at Leicester off a zmark 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 64, 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 two 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 class 6 affair.

The ithen showed plenty of early dash again last time out over 6f at Kempton before weakening approaching the final furlong to finsih 7th of 12 to Foie Gras.

Both his last two runs suggest he is well worth a try over today’s minumum trip of 5f, and with Simon Pearec in the saddle taking another 3lb off his back everything looks in place for a huge run.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Ceelo (10/1 Paddy Power – BOG)
