Ripon: Young Tiger

Awkward out the gates last time over course and distance but only beaten a length and fastest closer by 0.44s. Hasn't won for a while but handicapper given him a chance.

Can Young Tiger turnaround a 1 length defeat over course and distance with High Security? I think the answer is yes. He was very awkward out the gates and simply left himself with too much to do, in a contest where the pace was only modest and the early leaders stayed there.

Young Tiger’s closing sectional was the quickest in the race by 0.44s and if he can break quicker he would stand an excellent change. That in essence is the key to the bet; the 9-year-old isn’t the best out the gates and he’s hardly prolific on turf but he’s off a competitive mark in a winnable race.
