1.50 Redcar – Rivers Of Asia
Philip McBride is a shrewd operator and he send just two runners all the way up from Newmarket to Redcar. Rivers Of Asia looks to be the trainers’ main hope and odds of +600 represent great each-way value against the short priced marked leader Fang.
Rarely does Philip McBride have his runners tuned up at the first time of asking, and Rivers Of Asia was no different, going off as an outsider at Newmarket in August. Eventually finished 8th of 12 that day and showed a modicum of promise. As expected, he stepped up plenty on that run second time out when switched to the all-weather at Kempton. The son of Medicean ran a peculiar race that day, taking a keen hold, before getting outpaced and eventually finishing well. That run suggested that the horse will benefit from getting cover and racing over a straight 7 furlongs. Likely to be doing his best work at the end of the race and even on the bare form, he has a solid chance.
The market leader Fang has had 4 runs, and has obtained an official rating of 79. That sets the standard, and Brian Meehan’s runner finished 3rd of 17 on his last start, leading for most of the way before being collared late in the day. The less testing ground and course should suit and he is the definitely the one to beat based on the bare form, but this is a value game, and odds of +100 do not appeal.
Rivers Of Asia should progress and could be great each-way value at odds of +600
