12/1 Meet The Critics looks overpriced

Meet The Critics looks overpriced at 12/1 in the 3.50 at Exeter for the in-form Brendan Powell team.

The eight-year-old shaped as if needing his comeback run last month and looks open to considerable progress.

Irish point winner looked a chaser to follow when winning at Newbury in March where he jumped and stayed on well to beat a useful field by 1/2 lengths off a mark 110.

That was only his second start over the larger obstacles, and the form of the race looks strong in the context of this contest.

Although he races off a 6lb higher mark this afternoon, he has the scope to be far better than his current mark off 116 and has actually been dropped 2lb since his last run.

Granted normal improvement and a clear round he must go close, and the 12/1 on offer with Ladbrokes looks too big.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Meet The Critics (12/1 Ladbrokes – BOG)


Domos Boy appeals at 14s on handicap debut

Domos Boy makes his eagerly awaited handicap debut in the finale at Exeter (4.20) and makes plenty of each-way appeal at 14/1.

Jonjo O’Neill’s gelding went into my notebook as a horse to follow in staying handicaps this season when showing bags of promises in four maiden hurdle runs without being knocked about.

He particularly caught the eye on his last two runs when fifth to the Topolski and occupying the same spot behind Sizing Santiago where he stayed on well after clearly finding the 2m 1f trip too sharp on both occasions.

Connections are significantly upping him significantly in trip to 3 miles today, and I would not be surprised to see him improve out of all recognition as a result.

To me he definitely has plenty of untapped potential to win races of this nature of his opening mark of 107 and if fit and ready to go at the first time of asking he will not be far away.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 1pt each-way Domos Boy (14/1 sportingbet)
