Consistent Type Ready To Strike Again In Wolverhampton Sprint
A young improving horse can be a lucrative source at any time but one in an all-weather sprint with older horses can be gold dust for a few races. ROCKET ACTION has raced just eight times in his career and managed a win and a couple of places on his second and third starts before a disappointing effort in a Class 2 event at Newmarket. Wind and gelding operations followed and he has since run fourth on his reappearance after a two and half months break, and then produced a win and a second on his next outings. The victory came over today's course and distance and he has every chance of repeating the trick this evening.
The grey goes off the same mark, 91, that he raced off when runner-up to Leodis Dream at Chelmsford in September and that horse was beaten less than four lengths in a Group 3 event at Dundalk a month later, whilst the fourth, Furious came to the race on a hat-trick. His liking for Wolverhampton shouldn't come as a surprise as the progeny of his sire, Toronado are six from 22 there, a significant 27. Add to that trainer Robert Cowell’s three winners from 13 runners in the last fortnight and the certainty of an efficient ride from Tom Queally and the horse’s prospects look good.
YIMOU is next best on BTO ratings but is on a mark 7lb higher than his win at Windsor in August and ORVAR and THE DALEY EXPRESS are being backed but are on marks higher than in their last wins. PUDS therefore looks the danger after going down in a three-way photo in a Swedish listed race last time. She was a close runner-up here on her only visit to the course and has won on the all-weather at Kempton and Chelmsford.
Rocket Action looks the one and is currently 3/1.
