Beverley 3.25

Beverley 3.25 1 Excessable @ 8/1 / 2 Bashiba @ 10/1 - Sky go odds to 4th

The myth is that you have to be drawn low over 5 furlongs at Beverley, that used to be
the case but better watering and better stalls positioning have evened the playing field and the fact is you can get

all kinds of traffic on the inside rail, and often something coming wide and late can rattle up the steep finish.

I like to hedge in such scenarios and drawn high and low we have BASHIBA a classic hold up horse arriving
late (and as we saw in the 5f sprint here last night that is possible) and EXCESSABLE drawn low, who should
get a prominent run and be right in contention all the way. I considered Singeur and would have him nailed
on for some place money but EXCESSABLE is back in Class 4 ; has won in Class 3 off a mark of 83 and
should handle top weight here. BASHIBA has won in Class 3, usually very solid in this C4 off marks in mid
80's and gets in here off a mark of 85, with a 5lbs claim.
