Lithic ready to open chasing account

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Lithic is a strong fancy to notch a first success over fences in the 1.55 at Sandown today.

Jonjo O’Neill’s six-year-old was a fairly useful hurdler who has shaped with promise in two spins over the larger obstacles.

After being given a tender introduction when third to Capitaine at Market Rasen he showed the benefit of that experience when keeping on strongly from off the pace to finish a never nearer 2 3/4 length third to Markov at Fontwell.

It was an effort which suggsted there was better to come and the assessor has been quick to drop him 1lb.

A revised rating of 123 is 2lb lower than his last success over hurdles makes him look on a handy mark

Lithic also now gets fitted with the cheekpieces for the first time and if they have the desired effect he looks weighted to get back on the scoresheet.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Lithic (11/4 BetVictor, Coral, Paddy Power – BOG)
