Quick Returner Set To Strike Again Under Ideal Conditions

20th September 2019, 10:04 by Gerard Lees

Course And Distance To Bring Out More From Lee Hurdler

It was just last week at Uttoxter that SINAKAR gained his latest, and fourth win overall, when he beat Farmer Boy comfortably over nearly three miles. He had his favoured good ground and wore cheekpieces and a tongue-tie as per normal there and goes over nearly three furlongs further this afternoon under the same conditions. He should relish this according to form and breeding as it was when he was switched to staying distances on the flat back in October 2015, that he showed winning and decent placed form, and his sire, Manduro has produced Ascot Gold Cup runner-up Vazirabad.

Kerry Lee’s charge carries a 7 lb penalty for his Uttoxeter success but there is a likelihood that taking him to Newton Abbot will overcome that impost. His trainer is one-from-one at the course and the progeny of Manduro are a significant three from ten there. Jockey Richard Patrick, who claims three, has had a couple of winners from just a dozen tries at the course.

PADDYS RUNNER looks the chief danger and will probably try to make all but might be a sitting duck for Sinakar at the last after being off the course for over three months. HOT RYAN goes for the hat-trick and a mare in form can be a lucrative item, but she might just be done off a mark of 106, 7 lb up on her last win. Her stablemate PICTURE PAINTER needs holding up but might have been given too much to do last time out here 11 days ago and is a significant threat.

At a widely available 5/2, Sinakar looks the one.
