Kingaroo likely to grab first place in 32Red.com Handicap at Southwell
With most of the contenders having questions to answer, Kingaroo seems to have an obvious chance of sealing the top position in the 32Red.com Handicap, taking place at Southwell on Tuesday, May 08, 2012.
The six-year-old clinched a classy victory at this venue last month. Sports 360 The Sports Advertising Specialists Handicap saw him beating the 13-8 favourite, Ostentation, by two and a quarter lengths.
Garry Woodward’s trainee is full of spirit following a comprehensive win last time around. Therefore, the bookmakers are not reluctant to give him the highest starting price for today’s 1m4f event. Let’s see how he manages things
to add another win to his tally.
According to the plan, the class 5 event will be started at 14:45 GMT. Competing for a purse of £2,264 are: Kingaroo, Lakeman, Resplendent Alpha, Trachonitis, Yourinthewill and Apache Dawn.
Kingaroo tasted recent success after a gap of more than a year. It is an ideal opportunity for him to build on his fresh victory and bag a few more wins this season.
Lakeman is all set to spoil his party. After a long layoff, the six-year-old returned to action last month. He was not able to resume his journey with something special, as he fell sixth in the 32RedBet.com Apprentice Claiming
Stakes at Southwell.
It was certainly not an impressive effort by Brian Ellison’s trainee. However, one can expect to come up with an improved work today.
The bay gelding registered his last triumph in August last year, when he easily outpaced his opponents in the class-4 Swan Hotel And Spa Novices' Hurdle at Cartmel.
Resplendent Alpha is another dangerous runner. The eight-year-old performed decently in four consecutive races before losing his momentum at the start of March.
In the Betfred Bonus King Bingo Lady Riders' Handicap at Salisbury, the Alastair Lidderdale-trained finished seventh on the table.
A disappointing outcome would have dented his confidence terribly and therefore, it is unwise to support him. The remainder of the line-up has no chance what so ever.
According to our predictions, Kingaroo would be able notch up the top place. Lakeman can follow him home. We wish the best of luck to everyone.
