Lots to like about 14/1 Lord Franklin

Lord Franklin has been given a big chance by the handicapper and looks worth a wager at 14/1 in the 5.35 at Haydock today now eased in grade.

Eric Alston’s charge is a course and distance winner who scored twice last season with the last of those successes coming in a class 4 contest at Hamilton off a mark of 79.

He has managed to make the frame just once this season, when runner-up at Leicester off 77, but having started the campaign on 83 is now able to race off a reduced rating of just 66.

That is his lowest in over four years and gives him a huge shout at the weights on the pick of his form.

Lord Franklin also goes well in the mud and now drops down into class 5 company in which he has a 31% strike rate having won five times and been placed on four occasions from 15 starts.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Lord Franklin (14/1 generally available – use BOG firms)
