16:15 Perth – Upswing (BEST ODDS 11/2 with Coral)
I’m heading to Perth on Sunday and this is the feature race there, and looks the best race of the day in the UK. There are some quality horses in the field but I can’t look beyond Upswing. He’s won his last two races, including a Class 2 race at Cheltenham last time out for which he was favourite and duly delivered with a win. He’s up six pounds for that win but I can see the distance winner improving even more. It’s also worth pointing out that he’s a multiple winner on the predicted going conditions as well. Lord Ballim is the main danger but I think he’s got too much to do never having won at this trip and he’s seven pounds higher and stepping up in class.
A £20 total stake returns £130 with Coral.
