Jump racing is finally back in Britain after a weather-enforced break. This news has brought the punters out in force as there’s a huge gamble underway at Ffos Las. They didn’t want to wait either as the subject of the substantial market move runs in the opener. The horse in question was available at 33-1 on Sunday evening but is currently around 11-1.
Certainly one to keep an eye on, it would be a coup for the punters to pull off a big gamble in the first Jumps race for a while. Check out our free tips page for daily content across British and Irish racing.
King Of Brazil (11-1, bet365) ran in a bumper at Punchestown for Colin Bowe on his first start. He finished fifth that day and the winner was none other than three-time Grade 1 winner Mighty Potter. Having kept on well in the final furlong, one suspects he’ll stay well in the long run. The gelding was well backed that day, going off at 4-1 from a big price.
Katy Price now trains the six-year-old and he ran as if he needed it on debut for his new yard. That effort came in an Exeter bumper and the first two home could be useful types. You can easily forgive him needing the run on his first start for 680 days and he should be much sharper this time.
Makes his hurdles debut here and there’s plenty of stamina in the pedigree, despite this being over two miles. Perhaps he shows enough speed at home to suggest he can win at this trip. It’s likely that he’ll want further in time but this could be a good starting point.
