The Messenger had another winner on Sunday and he has a bet on Cashanova at Kempton on Monday.
Kempton 4.00: Cashanova
There was some promise from Cashanova’s last run at Fakenham and the booking of rising star Mitch Bastyan could prove the difference in this conditional jockeys race.
Having been brought down relatively early on during his seasonal return at Huntingdon, that last contest was effectively his first race and he was contesting the lead turning for home only to fade. If that was just a lack of race fitness then he should be stronger at the end today.
He ran two decent races at this track over today’s 2m last season, notably when fourth off the same mark in a handicap in February. With 18 wins already this season, Bastyan is likely to make a bold bid for the young jockey’s title this season and his 3lb claim will come in handy in this type of race.
0.75pts each-way – Cashanova – 4.00 Kempton at 7/1 with Betbright and William Hill
