Dizzy can leave layers in a spin


Double Dizzy has slipped below his last winning mark and makes plenty of each-way appeal at 11/1 in the 2.30 at Leicester today.

Bob Buckler’s gelding was last successful off a mark of 110 when gamely beating Cashel Blue at Wincanton back in February and is now running off just 108.

That is the lowest he has raced off for five years, and he showed top me to suggest he was capable of taking advantage when running his best race for a long time when finishing third to Uncle Junior in Cross Country chase at Cheltenham last month.

The 10-year-old raced with plenty of zest toward the head of affairs that day and after being driven into the lead two from home got headed at the last before weakening in only the last 100 yards to be beaten just over 11 lengths.

Although he failed to build on that effort in his next two starts he didn’t run too badly last time out in the farcical Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase at Cheltenham when still in third but driven when being forced onto the wrong course approaching the last.

Much will depend on whether he is on a going day today, but Andrew Glassonbury seems to get a good tune out of him and if he is then there is little doubt that he is weighted to play a leading role.

I think that he may be able to get his own way up front if connections decide to let him bowl along and dominate, and if they do then he could be very hard to peg back.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Double Dizzy (11/1 Ladbrokes – BOG, Sky Bet)
