STRIKER HAS CLAIMS ON BEST FORM

Harlequin Striker - on a good mark

Harlequin Striker – on a good mark

HARLEQUIN STRIKER runs in the 4.20 at Nottingham today, an eight-runner mile plus handicap and on his best form this season, he would have a shout.

Now rated 72, he has won off 78 and this year, was third at Windsor off 81, beaten just two and a quarter lengths.  Todays good to soft conditions should suit and today’s jockey, Charles Bishop won on him twice when the horse was trained by Mick Channon.

There’s quite a lot in his favour and at 15/2, he has a good each-way chance if he can recover his best form.  El Principe and Medican Ballet look to be two of his main rivals.
