We head to Chester today, a track that takes a bit of knowing, and OH THIS IS US, well proven at this unique Roodee circuit, can take the Sportpesa Handicap (2.15) for the second year in a row. Unusually for our Saturday big bet the race is not live on ITV but it is on Sky Racing.
Richard Hannon’s six year old is on a 3 lbs. lower mark than when successful in this last season, and ran into traffic problems in running at Goodwood last Saturday. Jockey Pat Hobbs opted to go up the inside rail where he ran out of room and arrived all dressed up with nowhere to go. His final placing on ninth in no way reflects the performance, he had still plenty left in the tank at the line and all things considered probably didn’t endure a hard race.
He should be nicely primed today and with Andrea Anzeni aboard Hannon clearly means business. A good draw in six should have him nicely placed throughout and he can pounce late to produce his decisive turn of foot. Remember this is a dual Listed class winner running off an 8 lbs. lower mark than he had at the start of the season so he looks seriously well handicapped. Hannon does not often pass up opportunities like this.
Humble Gratitude won over course and distance earlier this month and is on a hat trick, while Hero Hero and Richard Fahey’s Gabriel The Wire are others who have shown a liking for this track which certainly doesn’t suit all runners. Sir Busker, after two contrasting performances at Epsom in July was a good second to Finoah at Haydock. Admittedly that was on heavy ground which he certainly won’t get here, but all surfaces seem to come alike to the three year old.
Arcanada won twice at this course back in day but his two latest runs here have been disappointing and while Lake Volta would normally command respect in a race like this Mark Johnston’s runner seems to have lost his way. No question about it, Oh This Is Us is the one to beat.
