Hope more than capable of scoring at generous 5-1
Cape Of Hope
1pt win at 5-1 generally
CAPE OF HOPE, who recently joined David O'Meara from Peter
Chapple-Hyam, is just the type with which his new trainer excels and the 6f handicap represents a great first opportunity, writes Richard Birch.
The son of Cape Cross gives the distinct impression he is more than capable of winning off his mark of 75, and David Bergin's 5lb claim is a bonus in any tight-knit handicap.
An uncharacteristic missed break at Dunstall Park 46 days ago left Cape Of Hope having to play catch-up throughout, and he did very well to finish a fast-closing third on his initial venture on the surface.
Everything seems firmly in his favour today and a huge run is expected.
