The handicapper has been very lenient to give today’s best bet Ragtime Dancer an opening mark of 63 and that is a mistake we can certainly profit from when she runs in the Haymarket Nursery Handicap (Div II) (Leicester 1:30).
She landed a maiden last time out in quite taking fashion but the assessor is obviously thinking the strength of that race wasn’t up to much, hence the low mark. He’s probably right to hold it in low esteem but the way in which the selection scooted clear from an uncompromising position in the race should not be overlooked.
She had to raceleast three wide throughout having started from stall nine of nine, but still stayed on strongly to score with something to spare to beat her stablemate Edge Of Heaven, who ran a cracker at 33/1.
That win was a huge step up on what she achieved on her debut at Newbury when she toiled at the back of the field to finish a well-beaten ninth. She did shape that day as a step up in trip would do he good and I have no reservations about her ability to transfer the form from Polytrack back to seven furlongs on turf.
At 3/1 she should be backed with confidence in what is a weak race even for this low grade.
Meanwhile, the markets took a huge shake up over the weekend as a new superstar of the Flat came to the fore. Elm Park landed the Racing Post Trophy in fine style on Saturday and has got people touting him as a genuine Derby contender. After victory in the final Group One of the 2014 British flat racing season, Elm Park was rated at about 20-1 by bookmakers for next year’s Derby.
It capped a wonderful season for jockey Andrea Atzeni, who just two months after being signed by Qatari Racing to replace the retiring Jamie Spencer. He said: “It meant a lot, taking a new job – it’s just amazing.
“I’ve won a Group Three race (in the colours) and now a Group One, before the job even starts!”
