It Can Be Worth The Wait For A Turn Of Luck

5th January 2019, 09:13 by Gerard Lees

Extra Distance Will Suit Osborne Four-Year-Old

It seems likely that things didn't originally go the way anticipated with TURN OF LUCK, who goes in the last this evening, the Follow @racingtv On Twitter Handicap over a mile and a half at Kempton. Still an entire at four, he didn't run as a two-year-old and then had a wind operation and eight months off before reappearing at Lingfield in October. Four poor efforts followed before he came to himself with a win over Wolverhampton's nine and a half furlongs wearing cheekpieces for the second time. Two further decent efforts followed, the last a third at Lingfield over a mile and a quarter. There, he reared a liittle coming out of the stalls before running wide at two bends and then staying on really well to finish third. He would probably have won in another half furlong and tonight's extra two should suit him well, a proposition enforced by a BTO positive about the progeny of his sire, Pivotal. He is top on BTO regular ratings and gets five other positives. Consistent POWER HOME is next best on stats and form and TOUR DE PARIS gets a full 12 positives and is being backed. At 11/4 with many of the layers, the Nicola Currie ridden Turn Of Luck looks the bet.
