Well-treated Space War worth a wager at 18/1

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-wSpace War has become well-traated and looks worth an each-way wager at 18/1 in the 2.20 at Thirsk today.

Mick Easterby’s veteran is a course and distance winner who nitchde his last success on the all-weather at Wolverhampton in July of last year when scoring by a neck off a mark of 66.

He backed that up with a solid third at Pontefract off 69 and is now able to race off just 59.

That is a career-low for the 11-year-old and makes him a big player at the weights in this class 6 affair.

He has a 20% strike rate in the grade and comes into the race having caught the eye last time out when slowly away and not getting the clrearest of runs when a never nearer 4 1/4 length sixth of 13 to Inshaa at Lingfield.

That was Space War’s second run back from a break and he should now be ready to do himself justice.

With Harrison Shaw in the saddle taking off another 5lb with his claim, Space War looks weighted to run a big race.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Space War (18/1 BetVictor, Sky Bet – BOG)
