Back Turtle Cask @ 5.39/2 13:55 Sedgefield

Back Third Opinion @ 7.613/2 14:10 Leopardstown

Lay Master Rajeem @ 3.953/1 14:25 Sedgefield


We begin at Sedgefield for the 2m4f Handicap Hurdle at 13:55 where there has been support for Turtle Cask, in to a price of 5.39/2 from a high of 6.86/1. Dianne Sayer's 6yo has improved steadily since switching to handicaps and probably ran a career best last time out at Catterick to be second to Freedom Flying (beaten 6 lengths, pair clear of the rest). He has been nudged up 2lb for that run but isn't yet fully exposed and wears first-time cheekpieces this afternoon.

Over to Leopardstown for our next selection, Third Opinion runs in the 14:10 2m1f Handicap Chase and has been supported from 10.519/2 in to 7.613/2. He is 0-7 over fences and is prone to jumping errors but he ran well last time out to be fourth here at Leopardstown over 2m5f, leaving the impression that this drop in trip may suit (raced keenly, still there 2 out but faded in the straight). If confirming the promise of that latest run then he looks fairly treated off the same mark and could be decent value against the favourite.

Today's negative comes in the 14:25 Sedgefield where Master Rajeem has been drifting this morning, out to a price of 3.953/1 from an early 2.8815/8. The selection won well over course and distance two starts ago and remains unexposed at this trip. However he was well beaten under a penalty at Fakenham 12 days ago and now has to race off his revised mark, 12lbs higher than for that recent victory. All four of his rivals today hold some sort of a chance and he looks one to oppose.
