Overlay worth a wager at Worcester

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Overlay looks worth chancing at 12/1 on her first start for Lawney Hill in the 7.50 at Worcester.

The mare showed little in five runs over hurdles for John O’Neill, but having started life in handicaps off 76 is now running off 69.

More significantly she is now with a handler who has a tremendous record with new recruits and has proved time and time again that she can bring about improvement in similar types.

This contest is certainly weak enough for her to be involved if Hill can work the oracle, especially as she receives weight from all her rivals.

The daughter of Overbury gets into this with just 10st 1lb to shoulder, and although backing her is risky given what she has achieved so far on the track it looks a risk worth taking at the odds on offer on a day of poor racing where there doesn’t seem to be much value about.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts win Overlay (12/1 bet365, Betfred – BOG)
