Malin Bay weighted to strike at Donny

Malin Bay shaped really well last time out and makes plenty of appeal at 8/1 in the 12.15 at Doncaster today.

Nicky Richards’ gelding has just two starts in 2014 but showed that he retained plenty of ability when third to Island Heights at Ayr after a 16 month lay-off.

The 10-year-old made mistakes at the last two flights but only weakend close home to be beaten 2 3/4 lengths.

Island Heights, from whom he was receiving 2lb, is a progressive sort who has since gone on to land a valuable handicap hurdle at Haydock in terrifific style off 125 and that gives the form a solid look

Although Malin Bay now has to race off a 2lb higher mark of 120, that is the same as when last successful and he has run well to be placed off 5lb higher.

He also has the services of Craig Nicho, in the saddle who is terrific value for his 3lb claim, and taking it into account looks weighted to take all the beating if building on his comeback run.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts win Malin Bay (8/1 bet365, BetVictor – BOG)
