Scheu Time looks weighted to strike in the 2m handicap hurdle that brings proceedings to a close (6.20) and gain compensation for falling in last year’s renewal when looking to have the race at his mercy.
This James Nash six-year-old has only had 11 starts over the obstacles – winning twice – and was sent off a well-backed 9/2 favourite before disaster struck.
He had just taken up the running travelling strongly and looked a desperately unlucky loser and is able to race in this year’s renewal off the same mark of 124.
That is the same as when last successful at Ayr back in October when making all an winning easily by three lengths from Stoney River. It gives his a big shout at the weights and Scheu Time is versatile as regards ground.
He also has the services of the Jonjo O’Neill Jr in the saddle and is versatile as regards ground There is simply nothing not to like about the profile of Scheu Time and granted a clear round he looks weighted to collect.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Scheu Time (4/1 generally avaiable – use BOG firms)
