Value Test - 7th Aug


19.35 Ripon

David Nicholls has the two market leaders in this competitive class 3. It may pay to look at two slightly higher priced runners in Singeur and Bosun Breeze.

Singeur at 8/1 and 8.6 was beaten by 5L on his seasonal reappearance last time out and has dropped 2lbs to his last handicap winning mark. If he is fitter for that run he can go close here.

Bosun Breeze won his penultimate start and went up 7lbs. On his last run the jockey said he slipped leaving the stalls so we can forgive him that run. The question is can he win again off 7lbs higher. I think we can take that chance at 8/1 and 9.8.

A much riskier proposition is Oldjoesaid at 33/1 and 46 (BF place 11.5). He finished just in front of Singeur in his last run and although, unlike Singeur, he may not improve for the run, he raced off the pace when those at the front all finished close up. He may be worth a small each way bet.
