On Wednesday we have picked out one horse that is well in with the handicapper and with that in mind could run a big race at Nottingham this afternoon.
The runner in question is Raasel, a son of Showcasing, who marked his re-appearance from a 6 month break last time out with smooth success over 5f at Goodwood.
Michael Appleby is in decent form of late (21% S/R last 14 days) and his runner is more than entitled to taking a further step forward here on his second run back just 7 days later.
The quick turnaround has beaten the handicapper and has offset a 5lb rise that Raasel will receive for future handicaps and he also runs without a penalty for todays affair.
He drops in grade to a class 5 and is equipped with the talented and in-form James Doyle on board; taken as a sign of intentions to record a quickfire second success.
