Conditions Favour Gelding After Break From Course
Once trained by Aidan O'Brien and now transferred to Michael Appleby's Rutland yard, SEAN O'CASEY looks to overcome a 226 day absence in the Burlington Palm Hotel Of Great Yarmouth Handicap today. In truth, and according to BTOPlus+ stats Appleby isn't brilliant at producing winners after an absence, with just two winners from 36 after 150 days away from racing but the gelding has a lot of other things in his favour. He is second best in on BTO regular ratings and gets three nice positives for jockey De Sousa and trainer Appleby, including a 28% better than expected return when they combine. Of huge significance all over the country today as regards gardens and racing is the forecast rain. Yarmouth has been watering good ground and heavy rain is forecast. Sean O'Casey ran well on ground with give on a few occasions in Ireland last year, including a second, beaten two lengths, at Killarney. He can be found at 9/4 with a few of the layers.
