Villoresi value at 9/1 to score for Quinn

Villoresi looks decent value at 9/1 in the 7.05 at Wolverhampton tonight.

The gelding bolted up by 6 lengths on his debut at Kempton back in November 2012 when trained by James Fanshawe, and although he failed to get his head in front last year he put in a number of solid efforts in some competitive handicaps.

He finished runner-up to Sir Boss at Kempton off a mark of 80 and followed that up with a 3/4 length third of 7 to Semeen in a class 3 contest at Newmarket off 84.

The son of Clodivil then finished a never nearer 6 1/2 lengths fifth of 13 to Mysterious Man in a class 2 affair at Newmarket off 88, and after disappoiting behind Cat O’Mountain at Kempton ran really well to finish third to Border Legend at Nottingham off 85.

He then joined John Quinn and shaped with plenty of promise on his hurdling debut when third of 7 to Splash Of Ginge at Aintree.

Connections now switch him back to the level off what looks a workable mark of 85, especially on the polytrack surface.

Apart from his ruin behidn Cat O’Mountain, who has since scored off a mark of 93 and also won at Meydan, his two runs on the surface at Kempton saw him win and finish second.

It clearly suits him well, and his young rider Joe Doyle (who has ridden 8 winners and been placed 7 times from 49 rides on the All-weather) also takes another invaluable 7lbs off his back.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Villoresi (9/1 Stan James – BOG)
