Dor the one to Back at Kempton


The in-form Dorback is very well treated in the 6.30 at Kempton and looks rock solid each-way value at 9/1.

The gelding had some decent form when trained by Henry Candy and is now 20lb below his highest ever rating.

He scored in good style when beating Buzzword on his debut as a juvenile and went on to be beaten just a head by Coolminx at Beverley.

The gelding only made it to the track once in 2010, but that run saw him finish a close up third to the useful Duchess Dora at Sandown off a rating of 94 and the form of that looks strong in the context of this contest.

He has also put in a couple of really solid efforts this season, most notably when a very eye-catching fifth of 15 to Kanaf in a decent contest at Ascot back in July in a class 3 contest which has thrown up plenty of winners.

Now in the care of Noel Wilson, he races off a career-low mark today and holds outstanding claims of gaining a well overdue success having shaped well when runner-up on his last two starts/

he particularly caught the eye here two starts ago when heavily backed but given far too much to do in a  slowly  run race.

Held up at the rear of the field his rider sat motionless as the leaders quickened the pace turning for home, and despite making rapid late headway he failed by 1 1/2 lengths to catch Lutine Charlie.

Given a more positive ride there is little doubt in my mind that he would have won, and given that he runs off a 3lb lower mark now he must take all the beating in this.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Dorback (9/1 generally available – use BOG firms)
