Emerald Rocket a 9/1 gem

Emerald Rocket shaped nicely last time out on handicap debut and looks a big player at 9/1 in the 2.30 at Redcar today now eased in grade.

Karl Burke’s colt was held-up well off the pace before keeping on well to finish a 4 1/2 length fourth of 10 to Dark Liberty in a class 6 contest over 7f at this venue.

He is able to race in this lower grade class 6 contest off an unchanged mark of 65 and the step up to 1m looks sure to suit.

Prior to that Emerald Rocket has posted two solid efforts, including when third of 11 at Thirsk tp Another Day Of Sun.

The second home Mr Wagyu, who finished just 3/4 of a length in front of him, has won twice since to be rated 74 and the fourth and sixth home have also gone on to taste success.

That form reads well in the context of this contest and suggests Emerald Rocket should be up to winning races off his current rating.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Emerald Rocket (9/1 BetVictor – BOG)
