Double Czech worth a dabble at 12s

The lightly raced Double Czech makes plenty of appeal at 12/1 on his polytrack debut in the 3.30 at Lingfield today.

The son of Bushranger had just five runs for Amanda Perrett last season and shaped with promise on the first three without troubling the judge.

He ran far better than the bare result indicates on the last of those when fourth of 7 to Fire Fighting over 7f at Epsom where he showed plenty of pace to track the winner and after being ridden to try and make a challange two from home got bumped with a furlong to run before weakening to be beaten just over 10 lengths.

However he was not knocked about and allowed to come home in his own time once it was clear he would not be winning, and it was an effort which suggested to me that he was one to keep on side when  going handicapping.

He then disappointed on his handicap debut at Goodwood when dropped back to 6f, but then put in his best effort yet on his final start when upped back up to a mile and finishing fourth of 15 to Rising Dawn at Chepstow.

Having raced close up behind the pace he kept on nicely to be beaten 3 1/4 lengths, leaving the distinct impression that he would be capable of winning races as a three-year-old.

Now in the care of Pat Chammings, he gets into this off what looks a workable mark of 68, and the booking of Oisin Murphy – who takes another 3lb off his back – certainly catches the eye.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Double Czech (12/1 bet365, BetVictor, Paddy Power – BOG)
