15:40 Pontefract – Kasperenko (BEST ODDS 7/4 with Paddy Power)
I think that Kasperenko is by far and away the classiest horse in the field here. He’s won two out of his last three races and was only beaten by a head in his penultimate start. The win last time out was over this trip and Kasperenko has shown his ability to handle good ground in the past as well. For a Class 3 race, the competition looks rather weak and I expect this horse to dominate despite a rise in the weights for his previous win. The main danger according to the betting at this stage, Sennockian Star, is eleven races without a win. I think that Kasperenko is a start in the making and should easily carve up the competition in this 12 furlong contest at Pontefract on Wednesday.
