Flegmatik primed to take advantage of drop in grade

Horse Racing Betting

Wetherby’s Join Racing TV Now Handicap Hurdle puts the rest of the meeting to shame, though it is dependent on the card passing an early-morning inspection.

Five of the nine declared runners have already won this season so the winner will have to earn the first prize of more than £6,700.

Fact out to prove winning run is no fluke

Main Fact won twice for Dianne Sayer but his career has really taken off since he was switched to David Pipe.
He’s rattled up a hat-trick since the turn of the year but the general 15/8 looks short enough in today’s contest given all of his victories have come at a lower level.
It is, of course, entirely possible that he will handle the step up in class but he’s been winning his races with his staying power and a further 12lb rise in the weights might stall his progress.

Change of scenery a worry for Gennady

Sam England saddles Gennady for the first time since his switch from Keith Dalgleish.
He’s won at Kelso and Newcastle this season but is another stepping up a grade from a higher mark.
A best 9/1, a watching brief is advised for now as he’s had a busy time of things since first jumping a hurdle in Ausust last year.

Khage to come of age?

Secrete Stream got the better of Khage at Wetherby a month ago but that was over 2m4f.
On more favourable terms, punters and bookmakers expect Harry Whittington’s runner to reverse the form as the drop back in distance will also suit the top weight better. He is a best 15/2 while his old rival is available at 17/2.

Pass back in rude health

After a couple of years in the wilderness, Sandy Thomson has coaxed Mcgowan’s Pass back to something like his best.
The nine-year-old won at Ayr in January and was then a gallant second to a well-handicapped rival at Kelso.
There is a feeling that 2m is an insufficient test of stamina nowadays but he’ll be trying his hardest and the going will be testing. A best 17/2 with Betvictor looks about right, however.

Pragmatic approach could pay off for Flegmatik

After running a very respectable race in the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury, it looks a shrewd move on Dan Skelton’s behalf to lower the sights of FLEGMATIK.
A winner at Wetherby on his racecourse debut, he returned to the West Yorkshire venue to finish second in November when carrying a big weight.
That Newbury race was only the fifth of his career so it will be a surprise if there is not plenty more to come. At 5/1, Bet365 are out on a limb in pricing up the five-year-old.
