The Messenger previews Stratford on Sunday and Marley Firth is his bet at 7/1 with BetVictor.
Stratford 4.10: Marley Firth
An impressive winner on hurdling debut at Chepstow in November, Marley Firth has been underwhelming since. However after a fallow period the Dan Skelton team have been back amongst the winners of late with the ground drying up and he rates each-way value in this novice contest.
Whilst most of his form has been on heavy ground (including that Chepstow win) his one run in an Irish point came on good going where he was a cosy winner. Therefore he might well appreciate the slightly drier conditions today.
He has raced keenly on occasions, so this sharp track might better suit his racing style and he might be better off against largely inferior opponents today than in a more hotly contested handicap.
