Sea King

J: Luke Morris
T: Sir Mark Prescott Bt
Age: 3
Weight: 8-12
OR: 91
Days: 14

At a slightly bigger price in the same race is the Sir Mark Prescott trained Sea King and we think that the 25/1 available at Unibet for this horse will not last long.

Having just landed the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe the yard are in flying form and will be hoping Sea King will keep the good run going and he has a big chance to do so.

A winner on his fourth start for the yard at Newcastle in September last year on his first try at 1m2f, he picked up from where he left off at the start of this season at Doncaster again going up in trip and revelling over 1m4f.

Tried at 1m6f next time out and hiked up 9lb to a mark of 92 he never really got involved in tough conditions at Haydock.

Dropped back to 1m 4 1/2f at Newcastle he was fourth of seven when not running the race people thought he would.

Seen once more this term last time out he was fourth of 10 back at Haydock over 1m6f, actually finishing second but being demoted in the stewards room

It was a solid effort off a mark of 91 and it was his first run since having a gelding operation and it looks to have helped him massively.

25/1 is too big for this horse and he looks a big each way player.
