Gaelic Silver ready to strike gold

Gaelic Silver has caught the eye in two unlucky runs of late and is strongly fancied at 4/1 to land the 3.20 at Kempton today.

The gelding was a useful sort on the level in France back in 2009 when trained by Jean-Claude Rouget, and has had his attentions turned back to the flat after an unsuccessful spell over hurdles since joining Gary Moore.

He didn’t show much in his first two starts back, but his efforts in his last two races have suggested that he is well handicapped and ready to go in at any time.

The first of those came at Lingfield over today’s trip where he got no luck in running after leaving the stalls awkwardly but flew home when a gap appeared to be beaten just 1/2 a length by Understory.

He then again encountered trouble in running when returned to the same venue and finishing a never nearer fourth of 9 to Carazam (beaten just 1 3/4 lengths) and gets into this off the same mark of 71.

That looks more than exploitable judged on his recent efforts, and on the form he showed in France he should be capable of winning races of it.

He also now gets the services of Tom Queally in the saddle, and in a race which should be run to suit looks sure to take all the beating granted better luck in running than he has enjoyed of late.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Gaelic Silver (4/1 generally available – use BOG firms)
