Fame Again is back down below his last winning mark and is of major interest at 11/2 in the 5.10 at Wolverhampton today.
Mick Easterby’s gelding is a son of Gentleman’s Deal who was a real specialist on the all-weather surface, and has come into his own since tackling it.
He has won two of his six starts over course and distance, making all on both occasions to land gambles off marks of 64 and 69.
The five-year-old went on to finish an excellent third of 18 to Chookie Royale on the turf at Doncaster over an inadequate 7f off 70, and ran really well on his last run at this track when a 3/4 length third of 7 to Saoi off 71 back in January of this year.
Since then has has twice finishhed in the frame off 70 and 71 on the turf, and although he has not been at his best in his last two starts at this track those runs have come after a 94 day break and he wasn’t been knocked about in either.
He should now be spot on to do himself justice, and now gets into this off amark of 68.
That means that he is now 1lb lower than when last successful over course and distance – in this grade – and gives him every chance at the weights.
He also has a good draw in stall 1 from which to attack and with Graham Gibbons in the saddle everything looks in place for a huge run.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Fame Again (11/2 Stan James – BOG)
