Aguerooo to Hit the Target

Article excerpt

AGUEROOO can score beneath the Wolverhampton floodlights on what could be a challenging night for punters.

Eight races of varying degrees of difficulty present many issues for Dunstall Park racegoers.

But Aguerooo did enough over this course and distance to suggest he could have a solid chance in the feature event, the Betway Handicap. The gelded son of Monsieur Bond tends to run in hot streaks, having won three on the spin last winter.

He also doubled up at Lingfield earlier this year in the manner of a progressive animal.

The Richard Hannon-trained three-year-old struggled in four subsequent outings, after which he was sent to Wolverhampton for a six-furlong sprint on October 1. Not a lot was seemingly expected of him - he was sent on his way at odds of 33-1- but he actually did quite nicely from off the pace.

Aguerooo stayed on earnestly in the hands of Tom Marquand to finish fourth, beaten three and a quarter lengths by Dougan, who won a nice race in Ireland on his last outing.

He again has a wide draw at Wolverhampton, but Hannon will surely see this as a nice opportunity now he has got his game together, while the appointment of Adam Kirby can be viewed as a statement of intent.

Frozon should be available at generous enough odds in the Betway App Handicap.

The Marjorie Fife-trained threeyear-old is winless from nine starts, but he has shown spits and spots of reasonable form over the last year.

Frozon also turned in an interesting effort over a mile and a half at this track on November 19, when he was done no favours by a stop-start gallop.

Even so, the gelded son of Kheleyf raced enthusiastically in stages and did well to get to within two and a half lengths of the winner, Stonecoldsoba.

Back in trip and now even lower in the weights, he could feasibly go well at a working man's price.

Rock The Kasbah has an awful lot going for him in the Harry Dutfield Memorial Novices' Chase at Exeter. …
