Horse racing tips February 13: Horses you MUST back at Kempton, Southwell and Plumpton | Racing | Sport
The five-year-old’s trainer, Robert Cowell, is a dab hand with sprinters, but he soon realised that Sir Ox was going to make it as a speedster and after four unsuccessful attempts at shorter trips, he stepped up the son of Oxbow to a mile.
He was a decent fourth first time over that trip and has won both his mile races since, the first at Lingfield and the most recent over the course earlier this month.
He started 2-1 favourite that day and his backers were sitting pretty once Luke Morris (back in the saddle again) shook his mount up before taking the lead about half a furlong out. He was firmly in control close home and Morris was able to ease him down for a two-length success.
Half an hour earlier, CHLOELLIE (nb, 6.15) can take the 32Redsport.com Fillies’ Handicap over seven furlongs for veteran trainer John Jenkins.
Chloellie is in rude health, having won over course and distance the last twice and has form figures of 1-1-5-1-1 on her five most recent runs.
She is now on a career-high rating, but is improving at a fast enough rate to keep the handicapper at bay.
OLIVER’S ISLAND (treble, 4.55) looks worth waiting for in the finale at Musselburgh, where the card features a meagre 32 runners.
Leicestershire trainer Sean Conway’s charge was a good winner at Uttoxeter in December and can take this in the hands of regular rider Philip Armson, who claims a valuable 7lb in this handicap hurdle.
