4.10 Brighton: Class 6 Handicap, 7f
Papa Delta is clearly a difficult horse to train given he had a couple of lengthy spells on the sidelines but that makes this lightly raced Makfi gelding interesting in the context of this race.
After more than a year off he made an excellent reappearance at Chepstow last month finishing fourth without getting the clearest of runs in a race that looks fair form.
He steps up to 7f for the first time today. A trip he should stay on pedigree as being by Makfi and out of a 7f Group 3 placed mare. He couldn’t drift much further in the handicap mark, in fact this rating gives him a big chance. The negative is the drift in the betting already.
10pts win – Papa Delta @ 9/1 Coral
