Ower Fly too well-treated to ignore at Catterick

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Having been eased further in the weights, Ower Fly looks too well-treated to ignore in the 3.50 at Catterick today and worth an interest at 14/1.

This Ruth Carr trained six-year-old was last successful at Pontefract 13 months ago when powering clear to beat Watchable by three lengths in a class 3 off a rating of 90.

He was then far from disgraced when fourth of 10 to George Bowen in the class 2 Scottish Stewards’ Cup at Hamilton off 96.

Ower Fly is now able to race off just 80, his lowest since April 2016, and that gives him major claims from a handicapping perspective.

He also comes into the race having shown plenty of pace two starts back until fading late on in a class 3 over 7f at Ascot when a 4 3/4 length fifth of 8 Redarna before being unable to get competotive last time out over 6f at Pontefract when given a strange ride.

Ower Fly also ran vey well on his sole start over course and distance last June when beaten just 1/2 a length in a class 3 off 88.

He has a 28.6 per cent strike rate in class 4 company and now steps back up to 7f over which he has won three times and been placed on four occasions in 19 starts.

So taking everything into account, he has more going for him than his odds would suggest.

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