December Handicap Exitas - Each Way

Horse racing - Sandown - 09 Dec 14:20

Connections have made a very shrewd move here, switching Exitas from fences to hurdles. He will be racing off a hurdle mark that's 8lb below his chase mark. He's been in cracking form over fences, gets his ground and from this lower mark he should be going close.

Exitas recently won back to back races over fences. He won by a head at Kempton off a mark of 115 before bolting up by 7 lengths at Ascot off 123. Last time out he ran another solid race over fences at Cheltenham, finishing 3rd off a revised mark of 133.

He's now reverting to hurdles off a mark of 125, that's 8lb lower that his new chase mark of 133. Taking into consideration his chase form, especially his 7 length win off 123 you can see that he's well treated off 125.

He's 1 from 1 here at Sandown, winning by 8 lengths over hurdles here off a mark of 126 in 2014. His trainer, Phil Middleton, has a 43% strike rate here at Sandown (3 from 7), rising to 50% over hurdles here (2 from 4). He loves this ground, 5 of his 6 career wins coming in similar ground.

5lb claimer Mitchell Bastyan will be doing the steering, taking further weight off this seemingly already well treated horse. He's one of the best young claimers around right now, winning on 3 of his last 15 rides and he has a 20% strike rate over hurdles this season (18 from 88).

Exitas is well handicapped from every angle you look at it, he's also in good form, is 1 from 1 here at Sandown, has underfoot conditions to suit and the trainer does well at this track. So much to like and surely he's no 14/1 shot, great value in my opinion and has to be double stakes. 3 places at 1/5 odds.
