In the opening race at York I like the dual code running gelding, Prompter, who is returned to the flat today following an early season jumps campaign in 2012. The 7 year old gelding finished 3rd in a similar race at this venue on his last flat outing from a mark of 97. That day the front three pulled clear of the field and he traded down to 1.21 in running. Today he returns to york in a similar race but from a mark of 94. His trading record on the flat is excellent being available at the prices we would require in 9 of his last 10 flat races.
I would expect Jonjo O'Neill to have trained this horse specifically for a race like this and at a venue he clearly loves I'm expecting him to go very close. The faster they go up front the better for him but he has a smooth traveling style which allows him to stay on the bridle longer than most as the gallop unwindes into the final furlongs & the pressure comes onto his rivals. He should be right in the mix at this point with every chance and should at the very least go much lower in running at some point.
This is a pricewise race & Corals are going 14/1 about Prompter at 8.30am in the morning, this is the price I'd be snapping up.
Prompter can be backed at for 2 points at 14/1 at Corals (8.30am). If you want 30% profit then lay off 2.6 points at 11.0, or if you want 50% profit then lay off 3.05 points at 9.4 to give you a 1 point profit in all outcomes.
Best of luck.
