Small bet advised

With a lot of the media attention focused on the World Cup at present, it's important we don't let any decent racing propositions pass us by. One I'll be keeping an eye out for next time he runs is Buster's Boy.

He's not the biggest of animals but he's tough and consistent.

Last time out in a handicap hurdle at Sedgefield he lost valuable ground at the start and could never get into the race. (See picture.)

The jockey commented 'They went off like scalded cats and he couldn't go with them. I think he'll be better suited by some cut in the ground and a slower pace.'

After the race the trainer told us he thought the horse was still a big baby. 'The plan had been to go novice chasing with him but that has been put on hold for the moment. In the long term we think he's a typical National type.'

A small each way bet is advised next time he runs.
