Trainer who is 3-3 at Leicester in 2021 sends one runner there Monday

Leicester Racecourse

Trainer Roger Varian is one of the best in the business. There are few in the game who can improve a horse like he can and he has a phenomenal strike-rate all over Britain.

He doesn’t grace Leicester all too often but we have found an interesting statistic. In 2021, he has sent three runners to the venue and all three have won.

Clearly, he means business when he sends one there and he sends just one runner to Leicester on Monday. The horse in question has a big chance so let’s take a closer look at the horse in question.

3.25 Leicester

Running in the Class 3 Welcomm Communications Handicap (3.25), this 0-95 is a pretty hot contest and the winner should be a decent type. The distance is 6f and the ground is forecast to be good with good to soft patches in places.

Varian’s runner is Imperial Yellow, who will be having his first run for 317 days. Don’t be worried about the absence, Varian’s runners generally have no problem with running well fresh.

This New Bay colt was fourth behind Modern News at Newmarket on debut and then won on his second start at Yarmouth. That was over this distance and it was a visually taking effort.

Stepped up to Listed class on his third outing at Newbury, he finished third behind Martyn Meade’s Method. That horse has since contested Group 1 company, and was second in a Group 3 behind the classy Winter Power.

Imperial Yellow will find this handicap a bit easier and he may well be a group horse dressed up as a handicapper. He must have a big chance in the race and is worth considering.
