Bets of the Day: American Hustle is no con artist

American Hustle can steal this

Alan kept his run going with another winner yesterday at Salisbury from his two selections. Today's selections come from Wolverhampton and Musselburgh...


"The filly has plenty of size about her and is a full sister to the highly rated Gabrial's Kaka who has won four times between seven and nine furlongs"

17:30 Musselburgh - American Hustle @ 10/3 Betfair Sportsbook

Brian Elison drops American Hustle for the Market Avenue Racing Club, back to seven furlongs at Musselburgh today. The three-year-old filly was leading over this trip last time out before finally being caught (after trading at 1.68/13 in running) by Devious Spirit in the final furlong at Ayr. Despite her third, second place finish in a row, she has shown promise and looks one to be on the right side of at the minute.

The filly has plenty of size about her and is a full sister to the highly rated Gabrial's Kaka who herself has won four times between seven and nine furlongs. American Hustle looks destined to improve from her current rating of 64 and looks more than capable of picking up a small handicap in this class. Any market support would be interesting as I am sure she will be supported by the syndicate members when her time is right.


18:10 Wolverhampton - Kristjano @ 5/2 Betfair Sportsbook

Chris Wall runs his unexposed three-year-old Kristjano at Wolverhampton tonight. Last time out he raced at this track over one and a half miles and was sent off the 5/4 favourite, finishing half a length behind the winner in third. However, he fell out of the stalls in that race and it was only in the last furlong that the penny seemed to drop as to what was expected of him by which time it was all too late.

Wall is quoted as saying "He's more a horse for September time and he will progress". He wouldn't need to improve too much to take this contest, off a mark of 67 and with a nice weight for age allowance. He should have learned plenty from that last run and going over an extra furlong today can only help him.
