Ladbrokes Daily Top Treble Handicap of £10,000.00 4-y-o plus

1m. 4f. 1st - £6,900.00 2nd - £1,700.00 3rd - £800.00 4th - £500.00 13 Declared Standard Overcast, cold


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - You'd have to respect the chances of plenty of these. Many will look to El Salvador off an initial assessment of 85, and as he's likely to have more to offer on just his second go on the polytrack, his supporters could be right. The chestnut was undeniably impressive when scoring here fourteen days ago but the opposition is stiffer now. Katiola is another that has scope for progression, with just three runs under her belt, and off 87 she could well make a bold bid. Having her first start since the autumn, it should be telling as to how Katiola goes in the betting. In reality there are very few of them that you could rule out with confidence. However the vote goes to GRETZKY. He is on a roll right now – bidding for a hat-trick – and though the handicapper is cranking up the task for the six-year-old – he might well be good enough to go in again.
