In the fifth race of the day we believe that Caribean Boy is over priced in the market and with that in mind we are recommending a £5 each way stake to be placed him in the Topham Handicap.
The Nicky Henderson trained Caribean Boy for owners Simon Munir and Isaac Souede and he could just be the class angle in the event.
The seven year old has been very lightly raced over the years, only having three starts for the and performing to a high standard in all of them, with one place and two wins.He made his chase debut in January of this year and finished a good third behind some nice types and then backed that up a month later when getting off the mark at Haydock.
He was first seen again in November, shrewdly being put into a novices chase by his trainer and going on to beat Fiddlerontheroof to land the Grade Two event.
He dropped out of that company after that run at Ascot and was a poor third of three runners, with the heavy ground going against him.
The gelding then went to Sandown, again on heavy ground and struggled in a decent Handicap Chase, but the key to this horse is quick ground.
The son of Myboycharlie got better ground last time out in the Paddy Power Plate at Cheltenham and finished a fair seventh behind The Shunter.
Getting his ground and having had an away day over the fences, should see him go close and at 12/1 he looks an extremely nice each way price.
If placing a £5 each way bet on the gelding, with some bookies offering extra places in the race, it could see you take home £82 at odds of 12/1, if going on to win.
