Consistent Type Ready To Get His Head In Front With Conditions To Suit

Andoversford trainer Kim Bailey is in a rich vein of form at the moment, with five winners from his last 15 runners, and a 42% better than expected win return in the last two weeks overall.

He sends BALLETICON to Bangor-on-Dee today for the gelding's third race and the horse will try to better the two runner-up spots he has already achieved. These have been at Southwell (turf) and Chepstow two months ago on soft ground like today's. His victor there, Nicholls trained favourite and point-to-point winner Silver Forever, has just been run out of it since, under a penalty at Huntingdon.

Balleticon, a son of miler Arakan, might have a slight doubt on breeding about staying two miles but bumpers are not usually speed affairs and he kept on really well at Chepstow after being held up and jinking to avoid a hurdle wing, the hurdle itself vacated to facilitate the Flat race. Balleticon is third and second best respectively on regular and speed ratings and gets six positives in total, whereas the two rated above him, previous winner EL KALDOUN and FRENCHY DU LARGE get a couple of negatives each. The latter is of particular interest, though, as his trainer Venetia Williams has had a remarkable 12 winners from her last 25 runners and is going at a 220% better than expected win rate.

At Bet365’s 10/3, Balleticon, with David Bass on board looks the bet.
