Singeur and Fallon a potent combination at Ponte

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Singeur runs off his lowest mark for five years in the 7.30 at Pontefract and with Kieren Fallon in the saddle looks worth siding with at 6/1 to take advantage and score and overdue success.

Robin Bastiman’s gelding is on a long losing run having not scored since landing a 5f contest at Ripon back in August 2012 off a mark of 92.

However, he has run consistently well and made the frame on several occasions – inckuding when runner-up to Another Wise Kid in this contest 12 months ago off a mark of 90.

He got beat 2 1/4 lengths that day and now meets the winner on 11lb better terms having tumbled down the weights to a mark of 85.

The seven-year-old also comes into the contest on the back of three solid efforts in decent handicaps.

In the first of those he ran really well when fifth of 18 to Top Boy in an ultra competitive class 2 handicap at York and beaten just 1 1/4 lengths, and he backed that up with a keeping on sixth of 17 to Robot Boy in the William Hill Scottish Sprint Consolation Cup at Musselburgh.

Singeur was then far from disgraced when finishing seventh of 13 to the same rival in a class 2 contest last time out at Newcastle, and the drop back down to class 3 company looks sure to suit.

He also now gets the services of Fallon in the saddle for the first time, and that looks significant as he has only ever had four rides for the stable and won on two of those.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Singeur (6/1 bet365, Boylesports, Paddy Power, Stan James – BOG)
