Chepstow Tip: Gold Hunter
Course and distance record is 121 on going rated good to firm and he was an impressive winner last time out, earning a big speed rating in the process.
Gold Hunter is a short price favourite for the 3.40 Chepstow but it is well deserved and taking into account the paucity of opposition he should be odds-against.
Last time out he was a comfortable winner over course and distance and impressed on the clock. He ran the fastest closing sectional, whilst making it look easy and earned an adjusted speed rating of 81.
He might be an 8-year-old but this is only his third start for his new trainer and was rated in the low 90s earlier in his career. When racing at Chepstow over 6f on fast ground his record is 121 with all those performances coming in class 4 handicaps. He has a penalty to carry but the opposition is thin on the ground.
