Warwick Rocky's Treasure Win

Horse racing - Warwick - 30 Mar 16:00

Kim Bailey resists the urge to up Rocky's Treasure in class after he won somewhat cosily at Doncaster last month (22nd Feb) beating 'Some Kinda Lama' who had been running very well for Charlie Mann all season. Kim is clearly being patient with this horse (today's race being only his 4th race of the season and only his 2nd race this year). A five week break since his last run should see him fully refreshed from his Doncaster outing.

Upped in trip for his latest run, Rocky's Treasure seemed to relish the extra distance. He's being asked to see out an extra couple of furlongs today on softer ground than his victory at Doncaster so whoever wins today will definitely need to stay. Judging Rocky's Treasure on his latest outing, I see no reason why he won't be very much in the shake up at the finish.

An 8lb rise for his last success suggests the official handicapper was also impressed by the way Rocky's Treasure gained his Doncaster win. Being a 6 year old, he's likely to be improving at a fair rate of knots and I feel there's every chance he'll be able to defy this rise in the weights.

This horse is by Westerner, a leading national hunt sire in GB & Ireland. David Bass has ridden the horse in his last two races so he's familiar with the horses' running style.

Although Kim Bailey's strike rate in the last couple of weeks is nothing to shout about, Silver Kayf ran a solid race in defeat at Newbury on Saturday, Milord stayed on strongly, drawing clear to win a 3m handicap hurdle 10 days ago and Kim clearly had Charbel cherry ripe at the festival a couple of weeks ago, demonstrating he retains all his ability in being able to get the very best out of his horses.

Having looked like he might just have a touch of class and with further improvement expected, I feel he's worth taking a chance with today.
