Carlisle Tips: Aprovado
Beaten by unexposed sprinter last time but 8lbs below last winning mark (77) and earned adjusted speed rating of 75.
Aprovado didn’t do a lot wrong last time, he was just unfortunate to bump into a 3-year-old unexposed at sprint distances. He still finished 2 lenghts clear of the third place horse and ran a good overall time with a fair closing sectional.
Add it all together and Aprovado earned an adjusted speed rating of 75, in excess of his revised handicap mark of 69.
It’s taken a while for Aprovado to recapture his form but he rattled off a quick-fire hat-trick last season, all on good ground and is still 8lbs below his last winning mark.
Michael Dods has hit form in August after a slightly below par summer and with conditions in his favour Aprovado has an outstanding chance of keeping the run going.
