Aramis looks ace at Exeter


Kayf Aramis has become very well handicapped and is of major interest at 10/1 in the 1.50 at Exeter for in-form trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies.

The gelding has always been a staying hurdler with a touch of class, and although he has not won for a long time his handicap mark has plummeted as a result.

Among his runs in 2010 he was an excellent 1 3/4 length second to Souffleur at Haydock in a Grade 2 contest at Haydock when rated 149  and a 1/4 length second to Fair Along in a Grade 2 contest at Wetherby last year when officially rated 148.

He also ran against the likes of Big Bucks, Grands Crus and Karabak that year before finishing a highly creditable third to the progressive Cross Kennon in a Grade 2 contest at Haydock when rated 142.

The nine-year-old is now down to a mark of 136 – just 7lb higher than his last win – and is now a massive 13lb below his highest ever rating of 149.

That gives him a tremendous chance from a handicapping perspective, and with his stable in tip top shape he is simply too well treated to ignore  in this line-up.

At 10/1 he looks a cracking each-way bet, and I can see him going off far shorter come the off.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Kayf Aramis (10/1 Boylesports – BOG)
