Sprint in for the 10s about Encapsulated

Encapsualted is a fascinating contender on his handicap debut in the 2.15 at Wolverhampton now dropped back in trip and looks overpriced at 10/1.

The gelding was a Juddmonte cast-off who has shown steady progress in three maiden runs for Roger Ingram.

He was clearly far to green to do himself justice when a well beaten last of 15 to the classy remote at Newbury over 1m 2f on his racecourse debut, but then ran a far better race next time up over a mile at Lingfield when 9th of 17 to Simply Elegant.

Although eventually beaten just under 14 lengths that day he showed good early speed to lead and after being headed two out chased the winner until weakening out of contention inside the last.

The son of Zamindar then improved again last time up in a 7f maiden at Salisbury, where he again showed good early speed to lead until the furlong marker before getting hampered and weakening to finish a 9 1/4 length sixth of 14 to Kyllachy Rose.

The form of the race is pretty strong in the context of this contest, and the selection now gets into this off a lowly opening handicap mark of just 60.

To me he has shown enough to suggest he should be more than capable of winning a race of it, and what is interesting is that connections are now dropping him down in trip to 6f as judged on his last two runs he has bags of speed looks sure to suit.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Encapsualted (10/1 bet365 – BOG)
