Craggaknock has a progressive profile and looks cracking value at 8/1 in the 4.05 at York today now eased in grade.
Mark Walford’s charge started the season in terrific form, landing a class 4 contest at Thirsk by 2 3/4 lengths before defying a 6lb rise in the weights to score in a similar grade contest at Haydock by a head off a mark of 77.
The four-year-old was then given a break before posting a really solid effort last time out at Nottingham when running on well to finish a 1 1/2 length fourth of 13 to Rhombus in a class 3 contest off 81.
He finished just 1/2 a length behind the third home Gale Force, and that one has since gone on to bolt up in a class 2 contest at Goodwood off a rating of 83.
That gives the form a really solid look, and suggests that Craggaknock’s current mark of 82 is exploitable – especially now dropped back down to class 4 company.
He is also versatile as regards ground, and with Paul Hanagan in the saddle everything points to a huge run.
