The 10 year old Talsara is a winner over hurdles but hasn’t yet managed to win on the flat.
I feel tomorrow could be the day as he has posted some good placed efforts off marks as high as 61 and today, he runs off just 45.
He had a year and a half off, missing all of 2019 and returned after lockdown with a creditable 4 length 6th postmarking 52 (off a mark of 55) which showed he still retained ability, but he didn’t build on that in his next two starts.
Talsara was then off until April 2021, where he finished down the field, but that must have been needed. He only finished 14 of 16 on his second start but this run was much better than his finishing place suggests as he was only beaten 7 lengths and was staying on over an inadequate 1m 3F, postmarking a respectable 44 (off a mark of 47).
For his third and latest start he went hurdling and finished 9th of 14, but again ran respectably finishing within 16 lengths of the winner, postmarking 84 off a mark of 83.
These last runs tell me the horse is improving with each run and his fitness and wellbeing suggest to me that he can run an even better race back on the flat.
Connections have stepped him up to a more suitable 1m 5.5F, plus his mark has dropped to just 45. This is a career low mark, and he has dropped fairly quickly from 55-60 where he was running solid placed efforts.
I feel Talsara has a fine chance off the basement mark of 45, from a good draw in stall one, with K Leonard on board who has runs some fine placed efforts on the horse.
It really surprises me that he can be backed at 66/1, this is just far too big for a horse running solidly well who now runs over a more suitable trip.
I therefore recommend 1 point each way with Boylesports who offer 5 places and best odds guaranteed.
I still see him value at 25/1.
