BTO Value Selection

23rd January 2020, 17:46 by Phill Anderson

Filly to continue in form at Dundalk on Friday evening.

Trainer Jessica Harrington is in flying form, running at a 27% strike-rate in the last 14 days with more than 50% of her horses hitting the frame and she has an obvious chance of enhancing that record with a filly on the all-weather this evening.

Bella Brazil made an impressive start for this yard when winning from 5lb out of the handicap at Kempton in November, defying odds of 8/1 and she appeared a little unlucky when blindsided on the line at Newcastle last time, losing out to a fast finisher who had the benefit of the rail having looked like she had already put the race away.

The daughter of Clodovil ought to be able to gain compensation back on home soil in a race that isn’t as competitive as many of the handicaps competed at Dundalk and she looks capable of more improvement for a trainer who excels with her fillies.

She’s forecast to be available at around the 3/1 mark and given her progressive profile, the BTO top-rated filly rates as the one to beat given her progressive profile.

Gordon Elliot’s Pink Jazz will be many punters’ idea of the main danger and he was another who was last seen over in England when running out an impressive winner at Wolverhampton. The step up in trip should suit the three-year-old but he may not be as well-handicapped as the selection and he will also have a much wider draw (13) to cope with.
