Having caught the eye in no uncertain fashion last time out, Waiheke looks worth a wager at 13/2 in the 3.50 at Chepstow today.
That run came at Hereford earlier in the montbh on ger first start for Henry Oliver where the six-year-old mare fisnihed a 18 3/4 length sixth of 11 to Daring Du Large.
Adter being held-up well off the pace sge stayed on under very considerate handling to be nearest at the finish.
Waiheke was not knocked about in any shape or form and it was clear that was not meant to be her day in the sun.
She has quickly, and surprisingly in me eyes, been dropped 2lb to a mark of 103 and that looks exploitable given the form she showed when in the care of Philip Hobbs.
Waiheke won a novice hurdle second time up at Exeter in good style and went on to finish a solid second in another novice contest at that venue off an official ratong of 121.
She was also far from disgraced on handicap debut at Fontwell when fourth of 117, so now looks weighted to go in again at any time.
Waiheke is also enetitled to come on a bundle for her recent run – her first in 238 days – so if today is the day then she looks weighted to take all the beating.
The Bet recommended bet: 2pts win Waiheke (13/2 Sky Bet, Unibet – BOG)
