The weather forecast over the last few days has seen masses of rain fall on the Berkshire track seeing the outer track waterlogged and likely to be abandoned ahead of the card on Saturday.
With more rain set to fall it plays into the hands of the horses that enjoy soft or even heavy conditions and Addeybb is one of those horses seeing his odds of 10/1 last week now into as short as 11/4 at most high street bookmakers.
The gelding is well known for how much enjoys the rain and testing conditions and that is exactly what he will get at the weekend and this has been the main thought process behind the gamble on him.
During his career the five year old son of Pivotal has won seven times with his best performances coming in the Listed Wolferton Stakes at Royal Ascot and the Group Three Rose Of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock this season.
Both of those runs had plenty in common with the main factor being the ground conditions being very wet and perfect for Addeybb.
William Haggas has been quiet of late and will be looking to round off his season in fine style and his gelding could be the key to doing that.
