Newbury 2.50 Dubai Duty Free Handicap
What About Carlo was on my noted horses shortlist last year and has done us some favours in the past. Started the season well when fourth in The Lincoln, but then had a series of disappointing outings until returning to form at Epsom last time. Steps up in class from that victory.
Two of his four career successes have come in more testing ground and he carried the same weight in both races as he does today. The heavy rain that swept over Newbury during the week has brought his more suited conditions.
The softer the going the better and providing the ground doesn’t dry out too much the double figure odds available would have some appeal.
