TANGRAMM, voted all-weather horse of the year for Dean Ivory, seeks his eighth career win today, in the 3.40 at Wolverhampton and if the weight of support in the market is a guide, he should run well.
This improving son of Sakhee’s Secret started winning off a mark of 55 14 months ago and is today running off an official rating of 82. Five times successful at Wolverhampton, including two over course and distance, today’s 1m4f trip on the Tapeta suits him perfectly and with Robert Winston on board, he looks worth following and at 5/1 has a good each-way chance.
Earlier in the day at 2.10, Nicky Baby makes his handicap debut off a mark of 63 in a 7f handicap and he too has come in for some support. He needs to improve but has an each-way squeak at 16/1, again under Robert Winston. On the face of it, the favourite, Seaview, should be a good thing as he is has gone up 13lbs for his win last time out, yet carries just a 6lb penalty. However, he is surprisingly weak in the market.
