Desert Gulf – 3.15 Newmarket (25/1 – Various)
A lightly-raced gelding in a 6f handicap at Newmarket is the day’s each-way bet, with William Knight’s runner potentially holding some value.
Desert Gulf has only made three starts to date, but he makes his handicap & turf debut here with an enticing handicap mark.
The son of Kodiac signalled some promise when winning on his rules debut back in September, running on well to snatch victory by a neck at Wolverhampton.
He struggled on his seasonal reappearance over seven furlongs, with his trainer opting to drop him back down in trip here.
If Desert Gulf can reproduce the promise shown on debut last year, he could well outrun his price tag of 25/1.
