Palmer's Charge the One to Beat at Wolverhampton

29th January 2019, 11:24 by Gerard Lees

Consistent Three-Year-Old Ready To Get His Head In Front Again

The youngest horse in the Betway Heed Your Hunch Handicap is Hugo Palmer's JAMES STREET and he looks the only improver in a field of some seasoned sprinters. Eventually, seven furlongs might be his game but he can get his head in front this evening over a furlong shorter.

He looked a promising sprinter in the making last summer with a second and two wins before a disappointment at York's Ebor meeting in a Group 3 that prompted a wind operation. The son of Gale Force Ten bounced back to the track in early December with a win from Ricochet at Kempton, and a second at Lingfield last time.

Not seen to best effect last time, he was behind early but then shaped as if still at the top of his game when runner-up and goes off just 1lb higher today. Luke Morris is on board and he is running at a 25% win rate when combining with Palmer, who in turn has had two winners from six in the last couple of weeks.

SHAMSON, EL HOMBRE and GULLIVER are next best in order according to BTOPlus+ stats and ratings and the latter gets plenty of ticks for the success of the progeny of his sire, Sayif, at Wolverhampton. At 15/8, James Street can get home first.
