Venus Marina to Sail Home at Leicester

May 26, 2015


2.30 Leicester – Venus Marina

Venus Marina returns from her winter break, and could be solid value at 6.50Bet €100 to win €65011/2Bet £100 to win £650+550Bet $100 to win $6505.50Bet HK$100 to win HK$6505.50Bet Rp100 to win Rp650-0.1818Bet RM100 to win RM650 to provide Chris Wall with a winner. The Tiger Hill filly was largely disappointing last term, but did show one bit of form at Yarmouth which gave some hope that she could progress as she aged.

Penultimate run last year was over 7f at Yarmouth. She was well backed and hacked through an admittedly poor race, before going away to score comfortably. The front two pulled 8 lengths clear, and she went into her next race at Kempton on the all-weather as favourite. Was disappointing that day, but interestingly, Chris Wall beaten favourites last time out have a fantastic record; 85/359 (23.68%) for £142.75 LSP, producing an A/E of 1.42.

Promising apprentice Ashley Morgan rides, and Wall does brilliantly when using a claimer on his older horses (4 year old +), 40/222 (18.02%) for £81.36 LSP, giving an A/E of 1.59. Horse is drawn in stall 2 and is likely to sit midfield. This isn’t the strongest contest and conditions should suit.

4.10 Lingfield – Bertie Blu Boy

Bertie Blu Boy is a really likeable gelding from the Lisa Williamson yard. He is ridden by promising claimer Kevin Lundie, and has a favourite’s chance of collecting in the 4.10 at Lingfield. The horse has won two of its last three races, and has a great rapport with the young jockey.

The key to the son of Central Park, is to get him into the lead. When taking up an early advantage, Bertie Blu Boy is 8/30. He has a tonne of early pace and often builds up a lead that the rivals fail to erode. In a relatively small field, with not too much pace on paper, he should be able to dictate matters.

Win last time out over 6f at Chelmsford came off a mark of 64 and races of 69 today, but that was a career best performance, and he could potentially even be improving at the age of 7. Had to overcome some jostling in running, but scored by a comfortable 2 lengths. Has stall 4 which is perfect for a front runner over 6f.
