Newland Six-Year-Old Can Take Advantage Of Winning Mark
It was last August that Dr Richard Newland got the maiden SETTIMO MILANESE into his Worcestershire stable from Ireland and the gelding has already proved a valuable import, with two wins and two seconds from four outings, all over hurdles. It is hardly the first time that the qualified doctor has improved a horse and the switch from prescriptions to prizes must be a satisfactory one. The horse's last run was his best. Off today's mark of 125, he was beaten just three lengths by the progressive Ready And Able in a hot Class 3 at Aintree with some decent types in behind. The conditions of that race allow him to go off a mark 2lbs less today as his handicap impost hasn't risen and pilot Charlie Hammond can claim 5lbs rather than three. A reproduction of that form must take this event. Top on BTOPlus+ regular ratings, he gets eight positives, including his trainer's current six from 16 winning form which is 67% better than expected. SOCKSY is a clear next best on form and BTO ratings, with MARBLE MOON also getting a good few ticks, but the 11/4 about Settimo with Black Type, Ladbrokes and BetVictor looks attractive.
