Hi guys, it’s not often you find yourself being able to make a genuine each way case for a 100/1 shot but I think I can do that for the 2 year old 30,000 GNS purchase Captain Kane.

He was sent off at only 10/1 joint fourth Favourite in a 10 horse race on his debut at Epsom 23 days ago where everything that could have went wrong did. He completely missed the break losing 5-6 lengths at the start before finding himself in last place about 10 lengths behind the leader after they had gone a furlong. His jockey, Tom Marquand, sensibly let him find his feet in the race but with it only being run over 7 furlongs he also found himself out-paced in a fast run race trying to make up ground as he is really bred for further. Captain Kane looked a bit unbalanced between the 2f-1f poles and never looked entirely happy on the Epsom track which is notoriously tricky for any horse (never mind a 2 year old on his debut) with it’s cambers, hills, bends, and undulations.

So why bet him in this? Well, he wasn’t unfancied being sent off at 10/1 on his debut and considering how much went wrong for him and him maybe being unsuited by the track he could be over-priced here at 100/1. He is also well-drawn in stall 13, the George Scott yard are in good form (Last 14 days: 2-6, 33%), and he is bred to be suited by this step up to a mile.

This is a competitive looking race with the Favourite, 1,200,000euros newcomer Al Nafir sure to be popular, so the advice is only a small 0.25 points each way bet in this 14-runner race. Hopefully we will see a different horse today with that experience under his belt and he can outrun his odds. Good luck!
