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.
