Three-Year-Old Looks Suited By Course And Extra Distance

10th January 2019, 09:18 by Gerard Lees

Havlin Mount To Rule Over The Opposition

The John Gosden trained NEW KING is one of two winners in the Extra Places At totesport.com Novice Stakes at Chelmsford this evening and, unless there is a really outstanding newcomer. looks like adding to that record with another victory. His win came at Wolverhampton a month ago when, after breaking slowly and being held up, he came with a rattle at the end to win going away. Tonight's event is over an extra furlong and a half and, significantly, BTO's stats about the progeny of his sire, the phenomenal Frankel, suggest further improvement. The latter's sons and daughters are eight from 23 at the Essex track and a remarkable 11 from 24 at the distance whilst look at the course and distance stats show a 100% four from four. He is top rated from HAMMY END (125/1), with the other previous winner THEMAXWECAN getting three negatives as well as showing an absence of 101 days. Newcomer KINVER EDGE makes plenty of appeal on paper for a yard that can produce a winner first time out and PATH TO THE STARS (66/1 with Paddy Power) gets nine BTO positives but New King can lord it over these this evening.
